The first player to score 50 goals in the NHL this season is not named Ovechkin, Stamkos or even Sedin; it’s none other than my formerly most hated player turned fantasy favorite after he won my keeper league for me……….COREY PERRY!

Perry has broken out in a big way over the second half of the season, 25 goals and 22 assists in his last 28 games (since Feb  1), and has vaulted himself into Hart Trophy consideration. Prior to this season, he was considered an extremely valuable player to his team, and was on the cusp of the elite wingers in the league. His career highs were 32 goals in 08-09 and 76 points last season; now he is on the verge of cracking 100!

For those interested, on February 1 Steven Stamkos had 38 goals and now sits at 44. Do the math for Perry; it’s a phenomenal streak and it better not be thrown aside because he lines up with Ryan Getzlaf and one of the league’s best powerplays every night.
