The 27-year-old centre is averaging just over a point per game with 73 points (29G, 44A) in 71-games for the Winnipeg Jets this season. On top of that, he has been reunited with long timeline mate, Blake Wheeler, since the second period when the Jets were in Washington back on February 25th - a game where the Jets erased a three-goal deficit to earn a single point in a shootout loss.
Scheifele made his second straight All-Star Game back in January and even tossed in his first fight NHL fight in Raleigh against Brett Pesce. He leads the team in assists (44), average ice time per game (21:498) and power play goals (10), plus Scheifele is tied with Kyle Connor for most points with 73.
