Nashville Predators three stars of the month (10/2019)
1. Mikhail Sergachev
- 66 fantasy points (0G+7A)
Sergy is not only the leading scorer on the blue line, but the leading scorer for the entire team. Standing ahead of the likes of other elite scores on the team shows that this young player is taking big steps in his game.
2. Conor Garland
- 50 fantasy points (6G+2A)
Garly worked hard this training camp to make the roster. His hard work is paying off as per his October output. His foot is still on the gas pedal as he looks to prove to the club that he can be a go-to offensive weapon.
3. Neal Pionk
- 64 fantasy points (2G+6A)
Yet another player taking strides in his game. Neal has eased pressure off for our blueline with D.P's absence. He looks great so far in his new role and making the most out of it as he sits second in fantasy points in the mo of October.
The biggest thing for these group of players for the next month of hockey is consistency. All three of these players are young so it will take time for them to find their groove to sustain this ideally for the entire season.
In the system three stars of the month (10/2019)
1. Juho Lammikko
- 7G + 14A = 21P
23 year old Lammer had taken his services to SM-liiga this season to develop the offensive side of his game. This start is huge for his confidence as he had only scored 6P last season as a defensive forward. We are happy for him as the decision to let him play overseas was tough but know it will pay dividends.
2. Cal Petersen
- 0.937% 6W 1L 1OTL
Here is a goalie who is showing his strides. Petey is taking the full load for our AHL team as he works his third professional season. This season is huge for his development as he looks to rebound from last season. October has been a good first step for Petey.
3. Niko Mikkola
- 2G + 3A = 5P
It looks like the great starts from other players within the organization has rubbed off onto Miky's game. Our game plan with Miky is to transition him into NA hockey. He is nearly at a PPG pace with only 1 full NA season under his belt. It is still early, but it shows that he is starting to get the hang of NA game.
