It's his second GWG of 2016-17 and 14th goal overall, also giving him 50 points in 75 games. While he's professed disappointment with his goal-scoring after setting a career-high with 22 last season, he's more or less in keeping with his usual totals and hits 50 points for the fourth consecutive season.

Derek Stepan snapped his 23-game goalless drought in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

It wasn't the nicest goal of his career, but he'll definitely take it. "That’s how you break those, and it felt good," Stepan said. "It was a rough stretch, though, I’ll tell you that." He has 13 goals and 34 assists in 69 games this season.

Derek Stepan has not found the back of the net in 20 games.

That is quite a poor streak for the center who is stuck on 12 goals. "My individual game," Stepan said, "it’s got to get better." Stepan has 44 points in 65 games with a plus-16 rating so you have to hope that he breaks out of it quickly as he should stay in your lineup in deeper pools.
