Dadoun lists his picks for the Quarter Season Fantasy Awards

Offenses came back with a vengeance during the 24th week of action, leading to an explosion of power play success so let's dig right on in! 

 

Mathieu Perreault led the way with two goals and five points, as four others matched him atop the scoring leaderboard for the week. Jack Eichel was able to bump up his sum to three points with an assist, as Nicklas Backstrom inverted things to get to three. Blake Wheeler led everyone with four helpers.  

 

Your seasonal leaders will look slightly differently, however, albeit quite familiar. 

 

Backstrom is the first, and thus far only, player to cross the 30-point threshold. He has 31 points and ranks tied for second place with 24 assists. Victor Hedman leads the way with 25 helpers, and all defenders with 29 points. His teammate Nikita Kucherov has zoomed to the top of the scoring list with eight goals this month, giving him 17 on the year. Only 26 players have scored more power play goals this season than the talented winger has in March.  

 

Scheduling notes! This week will be fully loaded as 20 teams play more than three games. But let's start with those 10. Buffalo, Edmonton, Montreal, New Jersey, New York Rangers, Ottawa, Pittsburgh, Toronto, Vancouver and Winnipeg only plays thricely. Only the Sabres play consecutive dates, Monday against Buffalo then Tuesday against Columbus. 

 

Only the flip side both Carolina and Nashville play five times this week, only resting on Wednesday and Friday. Everyone else plays four times this week, with a back-to-backer mixed somewhere within. Go fill in your empty roster slots!
