He still has 17 goals and 42 points with a plus-14 rating across 40 outings. Kopitar has already surpassed the 40 points he posted last season, and he is on pace to flirt with the career-high 81 points he posted during the 2009-10 campaign.

He has four goals and 10 points in his latest five and is definitely a must-start in all formats of fantasy. The lone blip was that he won only seven-of-19 faceoffs against the Hurricanes.

He has lit the lamp in each of his three game in the month of December, posting six points with a plus-4 rating. He had a disastrous 40-point campaign across 76 games last season, but he also has 15 goals and 34 points over 29 contests and he is on pace for a career-high 96 points at this rate.
