However, he could've had more as he hit two posts in the third period. Zibanejad found iron again in the shootout, which added to his frustration. "It's rattling," he said.

Mika Zibanejad scored his 15th of the year in the Senators 3-0 win over Anaheim on Wednesday.

It was Zibanejad's second goal in ten games he now has 31 points on the campaign. He had 16 goals and 33 points in 69 games last season so he has shown improvements. Whether or not he is a legit top six forward in the NHL is still unclear at this point though. Erik Condra and Kyle Turris rounded out the scoring for Ottawa in a strong overall team effort.

Mika Zibanejad has enjoyed playing alongside Bobby Ryan.

"It's great to get locked up with that guy," Zibanejad said Monday. "I like the way he plays, the way he thinks. He encourages me to play my way. Earlier, maybe I was focusing more on getting (Ryan) the puck and letting him do everything. Maybe that took away from me. I'm now holding onto the puck a little more and not feeling obligated to give him the puck all the time." Zibanejad has been hot of late, with three goals and two assists over a four-game point streak.

Mika Zibanejad has enjoyed tremendous success on a line with Mike Hoffman and Bobby Ryan.

The three had a combined six points against the Ducks in a 6-2 win Friday night. Zibanejad has been white hot in the month of December with 11 points in nine games. If for some reason he is a free agent in your hockey pool, pick him up.

Mika Zibanejad has scored five goals in his last five games.

The 21-year-old had just three goals before this recent five-game stretch. The former sixth overall pick has loads of talent, but he's yet to put it all together in his young career. Hopefully this is a sign that Zibanejad has arrived at his potential. He has 14 points in 27 games this season.

Mika Zibanejad scored his fourth goal of the season in Ottawa's 2-1 home loss to the New York Islanders on Thursday night.

The Sens honored former captain Daniel Alfredsson before the game, but that didn't seem to spark Ottawa. Zibanejad has just eight points in 23 games, but has picked it up lately with four points in his past six. He is not expected to be a fantasy performer anytime soon.

He will likely draw in even if Bobby Ryan is healthy enough to play. Zibanejad has been a huge disappointment this season with only six points in 20 games. Perhaps this will be a wake up call for him.

Mika Zibanejad is projected to be a healthy scratch again on Friday.

He was sat in the press box for Tuesday's game versus St. Louis as well. Coach Paul MacLean wants Zibanjad to dictate the pace more when he returns to the lineup because prior to being removed from the lineup he was playing too careful.
