Valeri Nichushkin extended his point streak to five games as he registered two assists in Colorado's 3-2 home loss to the Seattle Kraken. He came out of the game with two assists, a minus-1 rating and two hits.
That's ten points (5G, 5A) through the first five games of the season. Joe Sakic awarded Nichushkin's 2021 performance with an 8-year $49 million dollar contract. So far he has been worth every penny and shouldn't be on the waiver wire anywhere.
