Scheifele was generating points at an elite-level in the second half of the 2015-16 season, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that he vaulted himself into the top-10 point getters last year. He posted career highs with 32 goals and 50 assists for 82 points in 79 contests. Scheifele proved that he belongs among the top scoring players in the NHL, as only seven players in league cracked 80 points and just eight had 50 or more helpers. He also produced 21 multi-point performances, which was surpassed by four skaters. Scheifele didn't score as many goals after the All-Star break, but continued to set up tallies for his linemates. Scheifele logged ice time alongside Blake Wheeler, Patrik Laine and Nikolaj Ehlers in 2016-17. All three of those wingers topped 200 shots on goal, which is something Scheifele hasn't done yet. Still, he has the talent to make the most of his opportunities, so you shouldn't be too concerned with his 20.0 shooting percentage. Expect Scheifele to be a catalyst for Winnipeg's offense again this campaign and look for him operate in the 70-80 point range.
Updated Oct. 17: Mark Scheifele assisted on a second-period goal as the Winnipeg Jets loss 5-2 to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

While the Jets struggle to find their starting goaltender, Scheifele has slowly scored a point per game and has six on the season. He had 82 points in 79 games last season and has a strong chance to top that this year.

Mark Scheifele found the back of the net in Wednesday's ugly 7-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.
That's not the way this talented Winnipeg team wanted to start the season. The Jets found themselves down 3-0 after the first period, 4-0 after the second frame and 6-0 when Scheifele got them on the board in the third. The Jets forward is coming off an impressive year that saw him put up 32 goals and 82 points in 79 games. He has the talent to surpass those numbers this year. Mathieu Perreault also scored for the Jets in the defeat.

Mark Scheifele said he's "pushing to be better than Connor, better than Sid" as he enters his fifth full NHL season.
Only McDavid, Crosby, Patrick Kane, Nicklas Backstrom, Nikita Kucherov and Brad Marchand finished ahead of Scheifele in scoring last season. "Obviously they're pretty lofty goals," Scheifele said. "Those guys are special players. They work unbelievably hard at their game. But at one time last year, I was top in the league in scoring." Scheifele has spent the off-season working with Gary Roberts on conditioning and with Adam Oates on skills. He is hoping to improve his power-play numbers this year after he recorded just 15 points on the man advantage in 2016-17.

Paul Maurice says Mark Scheifele will be the captain of the Jets one day.
"Mark Scheifele is going to be the captain of this hockey team at some point in his career for sure," said Maurice. "He is, in so many ways, the driver of that offense. Blake (Wheeler) is a big part of it; Mark, as a centreman, certainly drives it." The 24-year-old had a terrific season in 2016-17, as he scored 32 goals and 82 points in 79 games. Wheeler is currently the team's captain, but as Maurice said, Scheifele could very well be the next in line.
