Michael Grabner had a goal and an assist in the Rangers 5-2 win Monday.

Grabner is having a comeback season of the ages as he already has 12 goals and 16 points in 20 games after a nine goal, 18 point performance in 80 games last season for the Toronto Maple Leafs. He scored 34 in his rookie campaign in 2010 with the Islanders so he knows where the net is, he just didn't do a good job of finding it over the last five years.

Michael Grabner found the back of the net in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

He has four goals in his last four contests. Grabner's been one of the biggest surprises of this young 2016-17 season. The Rangers forward already has 11 goals, which is two more than he had in 80 games with the Maple Leafs last year. He's currently on pace to score 50 goals. Grabner will likely slow down at some point, but for now, he needs to be added in standard fantasy leagues.

The New York Rangers' greatest strength - beyond Henrik Lundqvist - is in their scoring depth, which showed again on Saturday in a 4-1 win against the Calgary Flames.

No Rangers skater had more than one point. Michael Grabner continues his hot start with New York, scoring his eighth goal of 2016-17; rookie Jimmy Vesey is already at seven goals himself. This scoring by committee system might not be the easiest thing to turn into fantasy gold, but it's impressive to watch.
