First Liners (Risers)
Tyler Seguin, C, DAL – Remember when Stars' owner Jim Lites called out Seguin for basically not being elite? Maybe that was the catalyst that woke Seguin up. Regardless of the spark, Seguin has been excellent recently. After going nine games without scoring, Seguin lit the lamp in three consecutive contests and also had 10 assists in those nine contests. Seguin is up to 31 goals and 42 assists, the sixth consecutive season he has tallied at least 70 points, capped by 84 in 2013-2014.
Max Domi, C, MTL – The Domi for Alex Galchenyuk deal looks lopsided in Montreal's favor. The son of former NHL player, Tie, Max has exploded for 26 goals and 41 helpers while wearing the bleu, blanc et rouge. Domi's play, along with resurgence from Carey Price, has Montreal in the wild card hunt with less than two weeks remaining in the season. Domi hasn't been as dominant as he was earlier in the season, but still has four goals and as many assists his last 12 contests.
Rickard Rakell, LW, ANA – Rakell only has 14 goals and 23 helpers over 64 games after tallying 34 lamplighters and 35 apples in 73 games last season. The good news for Rakell owners is that he is closing the season strong with 11 points in 13 March games
