NHL Top Ten Players So Far This Season

By: Matt Federbusch

1. Steven Stamkos (TB) 20 points, 11 goals, 9 assists

Stamkos has been fantastic so far. He is second in goals this year and second in points. The reason I put him first on this list is because he is the most offensively balanced player in the league right now and has been a huge part in the Lightning’s success.

2. Sidney Crosby (PIT) 23 points, 8 goals, 15 assists

Sidney Crosby, what can I say? As a Ranger fan, I despise the guy but I can’t say I don’t respect his talent. He leads the league in points but most of those points have surprisingly been assists, not goals. He still leads the Penguins with 8 goals but he has definitely shared the wealth with 15 assists.

3. Alexander Steen (STL) 18 points, 12 goals, 6 assists

Steen leads the league in goals right now and has been huge for the Blues so far. He currently has a point streak of seven games.
