Toronto Maple Leafs Players On Pace For Great Seasons
The following is a complete breakdown of seven Toronto players that are on pace for great seasons. Some of the names on this list are to be expected, but others might surprise you.
Auston Matthews is currently on pace to finish this season with 94 points. This would eclipse his current career best of 80 points. Matthews registered 80 points in 70 games during the 2019-20 season. The same season that was cut short due to the pandemic. It cost Matthews the chance to reach 50 goals in a season as he finished with 47 goals.
William Nylander is having the best season of his career, so it is no surprise that he is on this list. He is currently on pace to finish the season with 86 points. Nylander is not only on pace to eclipse his previous season best, but he is on pace to shatter it. His career best is currently the back-to-back 61 points he recorded in the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons.
John Tavares has achieved some good season totals in his career of 13 seasons. His career best for points in a season was the 88 points he scored in his first season with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Due to two shortened seasons caused by the pandemic, Tavares hasn’t come close to reaching that points total again. That is, until this season which has him on pace to finish with 85 points. Would be great to see a player that some are already calling washed up, score 80+ points and prove them all wrong.
