Richard Rakell is proving that his breakout 2016-17 campaign was no fluke.

Last season the 24-year-old winger scored 33 goals to lead the Ducks. Many thought that was likely a bit of a fluke and did not expect Rakell to repeat that level of production. However, Rakell has scored 18 goals in 45 games and is on pace to better last season's total. He is once again leading Anaheim in goal-scoring and will be playing in the All-Star game Sunday evening. It's not a fluke, people. Rakell is the real deal.
