In Saturday’s 9-2 win over Anaheim, he had two assists, including one on the power play. He had three assists in Thursday’s 4-3 overtime win over the Philadelphia Flyers. In 52 games played this season, he has registered 22 goals and 40 assists, including six goals and 13 assists on the power play.

Another former first-round draft pick playing a key role in Toronto’s success is defenseman Morgan Rielly. He has registered at least one assist in each of the past five games he has played in, including a two-assist performance in a 4-2 win at Winnipeg on Jan. 27. His most productive point game came in a 6-5 overtime loss at Columbus, when he registered three helpers, including two on the power play.
