Analysis: Bennett has three goals and eight points in his last seven games. The 21-year-old, who has been playing alongside rookie Mark Jankowski and a combination of Jaromir Jagr and Garnet Hathaway, has been especially hot on home ice with points in each of his last seven home games (four goals, six assists) at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

Analysis: Haula has scored in three straight games and has four goals and two assists in his last five.
12/10/2017 Maxime Lagace, VGK, G
Lagace has appeared in 14 games for the Vegas Golden Knights, and the rookie goaltender might have saved his best performance for last. He stopped 36 of 39 shots against his former club, the Dallas Stars, in the Knights' 5-3 win on Saturday at American Airlines Center.

Analysis: Lagace spent three seasons in the Stars organization before Vegas signed him as a free agent in July. However, his latest performance could mark his final NHL game for a while should Marc-Andre Fleury, out the past 25 games due to a concussion, return next week. If Fleury returns, Lagace would likely be assigned to AHL Chicago.
12/10/2017 Yanni Gourde, TB, RW
Gourde scored in Saturday's OT win over the Jets.

Analysis: Gourde has been hot of late, totaling three goals and two assists over the past four games.
