We're a little more than halfway through the NHL season and there are a ton of players putting up some pretty insane numbers, so much so to the point where guys are already setting career-highs for points in a season.
The list of players who have already set a career-high in points this season is long, but we wanted to highlight 10 of the bigger names that have done it at the just over halfway point of the season, so here we go!
Nazem Kadri, Colorado Avalanche
In a contract year, Nazem Kadri is ensuring not only that he's going to get PAIDDDD this summer, but that he'll be in the conversation for some hardware come season's end thanks to 63 points in 46 games.
Kadri's previous career-high in points was 61 and when the season is over, the number could be 100 or better.
Kirill Kaprizov, Minnesota Wild
'Kirill The Thrill's' rookie season was impressive and he's following it up with a career-year (no surprise). Kaprizov has 61 points in 45 games, which puts him in contention for the Art Ross. It also means he's two points away from setting a career-high for points in a season if you include his time in the KHL.
Jason Robertson, Dallas Stars
Yes, Jason Robertson's only in his second season so it was inevitable that he was going to surpass his 45-point rookie season total, but the fact that he's done it in just 40 games is incredibly impressive for a second-round pick who didn't have the same pedigree as say, his brother Nick.
Robertson has also scored 21 goals, which is a new career-best. The Stars got a really good one.
Aaron Ekblad, Florida Panthers
We're still sleeping on Aaron Ekblad, right? The first overall pick in 2014 hasn't surpassed 50 points since his final year of junior hockey with the Barrie Colts, but he's just 5 points away from doing that this season with 45 in 48 games.
Ekblad's previous best was 41 in 2019/20, but what's impressive with him when you look at his numbers is that he's scored double digit goals in 7 of his 8 seasons in the NHL and is 5 tallies away from a new career-best in that department.
Jesper Bratt, New Jersey Devils
Guess what round Jesper Bratt was drafted in. If you said 5th or earlier, you're wrong. A 6th-round selection in 2016, Bratt has posted 30 or more points in every season and this year, he's taken his game to another level with 43 points in 45 games, which is 8 more than his previous career-high.
At just 23-years-old, Bratt has the Devils' future looking even brighter.
Jordan Kyrou, St. Louis Blues
There's a reason Jesse calls Jordan Kyrou box office and he's been showcasing that ability all season.
Kyrou has built on an impressive 35-point campaign last season with career-highs across the board (18-25-43) and he's a big reason why the Blues have been so successful this season.
Troy Terry, Anaheim Ducks
Troy Terry was a 5th-round pick in 2015, but had some legendary World Juniors moments that made many believe he could be a productive player in the NHL. It's taken some time for him to get to that point, but this season has been the 24-year-old's best season with 25 goals and 42 points, which shatters his previous career-high of 20 points last season.
Chandler Stephenson, Vegas Golden Knights
So...if I asked you who's leading the Vegas Golden Knights in points this season, you probably wouldn't say Chandler Stephenson, which means you'd also be wrong.
The 27-year-old was drafted in 2012, but has been so impactful for Vegas with his blazing speed, and with 38 points this season he's well on his way to a potential 60-point season. Not bad for a guy making 2.75 million for the next two seasons after this one.
Devon Toews, Colorado Avalanche
When you think of Avalanche defenceman, Cale Makar is the first name that comes to mind, especially when we're talking about points. But his D-partner Devon Toews has been just as good this season, and even though the production isn't up with Cale, it's still really good.
Toews is almost averaging a point per game with 36 in 38 games and he's two away from the most goals he's had in a season since he was playing in the BCHL in 2012/13.
Andrew Mangiapane, Calgary Flames
Andrew Mangiapane's stat-line is incredible. 25 goals, 8 assists, and a career-high 33 points. The guy just scores goals, can't argue with that.
