Justin Fontaine had a solid week, with a primary assist on Erik Haula’s goal in Nashville, and a goal and another helper against Colorado. Fontaine leads the team in Points/60 right now, which may be a tad on the misleading side, but there’s no doubt that he’s been a productive player when used in the lineup. There’s been much concern about Fontaine’s limited ice time this season in spite of his production, and I think they’re rather valid. Hopefully the production of his line as of late helps that.

Over the last week of so, his line with Kyle Brodziak and Erik Haula has been tremendous, and after essentially winning the game against Nashville, hopefully we see that line together and productive for a considerable amount of time still. Fontaine has been solid lately, and after snubbing him last week, he deserved a spot on this list so his heroics against the Avalanche.
