Alex Killorn has lived up to his large contract so far this season.

Killorn signed a seven-year, $31.15 million contract in the off-season and the security of that deal seems to have put him at ease and has resulted in him playing exceptional hockey. In Tampa's first five games Killorn has scored four goals, including one Saturday night against the Senators in a 4-1 victory. The 26-year-old forward is tied for the team lead in scoring with five points and is certainly enjoying his stint centering a line featuring the talented Nikita Kucherov and Tyler Johnson. If Killorn is a free agent in your pool, go get him.
