Valeri Nuchushkin tallied two points in Colorado's 7-3 road win over the Vegas Golden Knights on Monday. He scored a goal, an assist, a plus-2 rating, five PIM, and two hits.

Fantasy Impact:

Nichushkin put up a Gordie Howe hat-trick in this one by adding a fight to his two points. The goal he scored was the seventh of the game which a defender tried to launch a zone-clearing back hand but hit Nichushkin square in the forehead and rolled through Fleury for the goal. He's up to seven goals and 13 points this season and is on pace for a personal best in goals scored.
