The center has racked up 11 points through the first 15 games, including seven goals and four helpers. He even has one power play goal and two short-handed goals. He has blossomed on the team’s first line and he has greatly benefited from the extra ice time.
The 25-year-old has already scored seven goals this far this season. He is currently ranked 15th in the NHL in scoring, which ties him with superstars like Jonathan Toews, Daniel Sedin, Martin St. Louis, and Henrik Zetterberg. Little has never been known as an elite goal scorer, but recently he has been producing like a top-tier fantasy forward.
Little’s sudden scoring outburst is even more surprising considering that he has already matched his goal total from all of last season. He only scored seven goals in 48 games last season and the veteran is on pace to shatter those numbers in 2013. With this kind of start, he should have no problem producing a 40-point season.
Little is still available in over 35% of CBS leagues and it is finally time to add this middleman. He won’t keep up this scoring streak all season long, but he is worth starting right now while he is so hot.
