Adam Cracknell scored a hat trick in Friday's 6-1 win over the San Jose Sharks.
Well, no one could have predicted this kind of production from Cracknell. The Stars forward gave his team 1-0, 4-0, 5-1 leads in tonight's victory. He finished the game with a plus-3 rating and five shots on goal in just 11:35 of ice time. He has 10 goals and five assists in 61 games. Tonight's offensive outburst won't change the fact that he doesn't have any value in most fantasy leagues. Brett Ritchie, Jamie Benn and John Klingberg also scored for the Stars. Mar 24 - 11:47 PM
