Gaudreau’s third season in the NHL can largely be characterized by a series of unlucky breaks -- he lost 10 games of the campaign to a broken hand and managed an unfortunate 9.9 shooting percentage. Despite all that, Johnny Hockey still delivered his third consecutive campaign of 60-plus points and even walked away with the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy to boot. In a league full of great young players, the New Jersey native is continuing to prove that he’s one of today’s brightest young stars, and assuming the puck bounces back his way this season -- a relatively safe assumption -- he should easily break the 70-point threshold again and could even flirt with the 80s or 90s.

  2. Johnny Gaudreau 2017–18 Preseason Outlook
    Gaudreau’s third season in the NHL can largely be characterized by a series of unlucky breaks -- he lost 10 games of the campaign to a broken hand and managed an unfortunate 9.9 shooting percentage. Despite all that, Johnny Hockey still delivered his third consecutive campaign of 60-plus points and even walked away with the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy to boot. In a league full of great young players, the New Jersey native is continuing to prove that he’s one of today’s brightest young stars, and assuming the puck bounces back his way this season -- a relatively safe assumption -- he should easily break the 70-point threshold again and could even flirt with the 80s or 90s.
  3. Johnny Gaudreau 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    The young star they call Johnny Hockey was truly spectacular in his sophomore NHL season, finishing barely short of point-per-game production as the primary bright spot for a Calgary team that was otherwise rife with issues. As he enters his age-23 season, Gaudreau’s in excellent position to increase his production – after all, we’re talking about a guy who averaged two points per game in his final college campaign and finished plus-4 last year despite serving as the main power-play producer for the sad-sack Flames (minus-29 goal differential). The addition of a more-than-competent goalie in Brian Elliott to address Calgary’s disaster in net should work strongly in Gaudreau’s benefit, boosting his plus-minus and giving him a shot to contend for the NHL scoring title. He may be one of the smallest players in the league at 5-foot-9, 157 pounds, but Gaudreau’s got that golden-era Martin St. Louis elusiveness, which has so far allowed him to stay healthier than many of the league’s other undersized players. That’s great for Flames fans and fantasy owners alike, as there are already precious few players more dangerous with the puck.
  4. Johnny Gaudreau 2015–16 Preseason Outlook
    Johnny Hockey was flat-out brilliant last season -- there’s no other way to put it. He finished tied with Ottawa’s Mark Stone for the league lead in rookie scoring (64 points) and topped all first-year players with 40 assists. And he continued to deliver in the playoffs, picking up nine points in just 11 games. Gaudreau found instant chemistry with Sean Monahan and Jiri Hudler, and the trio drove possession almost every time they were on the ice. And then there was the excitement -- the little guy pulled people out of the their seats over and over again whenever he touched the puck. Man, he's fun to watch. Sure, there’s always a chance of a sophomore slump, but we’re betting Gaudreau can repeat last season’s heroics, even with the increased attention from the opposition.
  5. Johnny Gaudreau 2014–15 Preseason Outlook
    The reigning Hobey Baker winner was downright dominant at Boston College his senior year, delivering 36 goals and 44 assists in only 40 games. He also scored in his Calgary debut, setting high expectations for the start of 2014-15. The slight (5-foot-7, 150 lbs.) winger could use some more muscle on his frame, but has a good chance of making the Flames in the fall. There's no question of his talent level, but it remains to be seen if he can endure the rigors of an NHL campaign.
  6. Johnny Gaudreau 2013–14 Preseason Outlook
    Gaudreau is perhaps the top prospect remaining in the Flames' organization, but he will return to Boston College for his junior season after registering 51 points in 35 games in 2012-13. His star is on the rise after a sensational 2013 World Junior Championship where he led the tournament -- and his age group -- in goals.
  7. Johnny Gaudreau 2012–13 Preseason Outlook
    Gaudreau seemed like just another small, fourth-round draft pick (2011) out of the USHL. That is, until he finished second in team scoring (Boston College) last year, one point behind the sexy Chris Kreider. Fast forward to the 2013 World Junior Championship and everyone knows his name. He was named to the tournament's all-star squad while representing the gold-medal winning US squad and his seven goals led the tournament. His combination of speed, skill and tenacity (and size) smack of Marty St. Louis. He has first-line upside, but is a few years away.
