He's up to 29 goals and 42 assist for 71 points (!) this season, and has been an unexpected fantasy monster for the Flames in 2014-15.

He's been one of the league's busiest goalies with 64 appearances this season, compiling a .906 save percentage and 2.88 GAA along the way -- numbers that just haven't been good enough to get the Stars into the playoffs.
