The Golden Knights have achieved this success because several of their players are having NHL career-best seasons. Of their 14 who have played at least 20 games Corey Crawford Youth Jersey and who had at least 82 games of previous NHL experience, nine have his NHL career high in points per game. Of those nine, here are three overachieving players whose contributions have been the most surprising and have had the greatest impact: William Karlsson, F Given his previous NHL career scoring rate of 0.27 points per game, Karlsson was expected to have 11 points after 41 games. Instead, he has 36 points (22 goals, 14 assists). That difference of plus-25 ranks second to New York Islanders forward Josh Bailey, who is plus-30 with 50 points (12 goals, 38 assists). Most of Karlsson's Duncan Keith Youth Jersey points have come from his Vegas-high 22 goals, which were scored on 85 shots in 41 games for a League-high shooting percentage of 25.9 percent (minimum 40 shots). Previously, Karlsson scored 18 goals on 233 shots in 183 games for a shooting percentage of 7.7 percent. Additional ice Jonathan Toews Youth Jersey time has been another important factor in Karlsson's scoring rate. He leads Golden Knights forwards with an average of 18:13 per game (including 1:41 on the penalty kill). That's up from an NHL career high of 14:28 with the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2015-16. The extra scoring has boosted Karlsson to a plus-20 rating, tied for sixth in the NHL, and has improved his NHL career rating to plus-24. And his shot-based Patrick Kane Youth Jersey metrics confirm that he has been tilting the ice in the Golden Knights' favor. Karlsson has boosted his team's share of all on-ice shot attempts at 5-on-5 from 48.99 to 54.36 percent for a Relative SAT of plus-5.37 percent. After 41 games, Schmidt has an NHL career-high 19 points (two goals, 17 assists). Based on his previous scoring rate of 0.22 points per game, Schmidt is plus-10 points, which ranks seventh among NHL defensemen. Schmidt has received a big boost in ice time in all manpower situations. At even strength, it has increased from a previous NHL career average of 15:39 to 18:18, has gone up from 0:48 to 2:00 when shorthanded, jumped from 0:05 to 2:20 on the power play, and gone from 16:34 to a Vegas-high 22:38 overall. These have been tough minutes against top opponents, and in all zones; Schmidt's zone start percentage of 43.41 percent is second-lowest on the Golden Knights to Luca Sbisa's 39.82.
