5. Fontaine: 9 Points In 8 Games

Justin Fontaine is pretty easily the most underrated player on the Wild. We’re talking underrated in almost every metric you can think of. He’s very, very, very quietly having a great year.

He’s been less quiet since Valentine’s Day though. In the eight games following Valentine’s Day (all with the exclusion of Tuesday’s Senators game) he has nine points. That’s four goals and five assists in eight games for a guy who had four goals and nine assists in the 44 prior games this season.
