Anything over a point a game should be considered elite

  • However, you just can’t ignore what Russian superstar Nikita Kucherov is doing as the league’s leading scorer with 33 goals and 53 assists, good for 86 points in just 65 games. A 1.32 points-per-game clip in today’s NHL is very impressive. Anything over a point a game should be considered elite.


    Kucherov has already surpassed his career high point total of NHL Coins 85, which he set in 77 games last year. If you stretch out his point-per-game average to a full 82-game season, it works out to 108 points.It’s hard to imagine where the Lightning would be without this kind of production.


    Arguably, there is no one as talented in the league as Evgeni Malkin. When Gino is on, he is a force. Injuries have hindered Malkin throughout his career, and we haven’t seen the best of him since he won his second league scoring title way back in the 2011-12 season.
