He is off to a strong start this season with five goals and 10 points in 13 contests. He's a good bet to surpass his career-high of 56 points and we think he'll eventually post a 70-point season, even if it doesn't happen in 2014-15.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins got into his first NHL fight on Saturday.

Nugent-Hopkins was upset with a hit from the Canucks Dan Hamhuis and went after him. "It's something I had to get out of the way eventually I guess," Nugent-Hopkins said. "He had a good hit on me, it was a clean hit and we got up and I don't know what really sparked it. He's not a fighter so we kind of just looked at each other and probably both wanted to spark our team a little." RNH was held pointless but he did contribute fantasy-wise with the fisticuffs. Don't expect this again from Nugent-Hopkins this season.
