Joel Eriksson Ek scored a late third-period goal that sealed a 4-1 win for Minnesota. He ended up with a plus-one rating, two hits, and one block in 16:29 minutes of ice time.
The goal is Eriksson Ek's 11th of the season along with five assists in 26 games played. He has easily passed his career-high of eight goals from last season largely thanks to an 18.3 Shot percentage. While he likely won't maintain that pace all season, he has improved dramatically offensively and should be used in all fantasy formats.

Eriksson Ek is the team leader in goals scored this season with four and is tied with two others including his linemate Jordan Greenway for the team lead in points with six. Three of his goals have come in the last four games. Mostly thought of as a third-line type of center, Eriksson Ek has stepped up his offensive game this season and should surpass his totals of 29 points (eight goals, 21 assists) from last season, even with a shortened league schedule.
