Cam Atkinson has a four game points streak since returning to action from a fractured foot before the All-Star game.

Atkinson had 35 goals and 62 points last season but struggled coming out of the gate this year as he had only six goals and 13 points in 32 games before the injury. But it has been different since his return and a prime example was Saturday when he had eight shots on goal in the first period alone. "I just feel confident, with and without the puck, like my old self — not afraid to make mistakes, going hard to the net, shooting as much as I can, making plays when they’re there, playing my style of hockey," Atkinson said. He is worth a pickup in all leagues at this time.
