Iafallo has actually been a strong forward for several years, however he’s taken it to another level with 6 objectives and 13 points in 13 contests, Phillip Danault has actually been a terrific fit considering that being transferred the summer season with 3 objectives and 8 points in 13 video games, and Adrian Kempe, who scored the overtime winner, has actually likewise taken an advance with 5 objectives and 8 points in 13 video games.
