Sissons takes a big step forward

I’ll probably never forget that hat trick from none other than Colton Sissons that help defeat those pesky Ducks and thrust the Predators into the Stanley Cup Final. Even with that, where’s the Sissons love at? I’m seeing him sadly overlooked, and he shouldn’t be.

Sissons busted onto the scene as more than just a role player in the playoffs. It will be easy pickings for him to improve on his modest eight goals. You have to wonder how that’s even possible after watching his playoff performances.

Sissons isn’t going to become the Nashville Predators’ most dynamic scorer, but I expect him to become a more steady contributor. Someone who is capable of another hat trick as he heads into his fourth NHL season. In those four seasons he has just 109 games played. In a more full-time role, he will finish around 20 goals.
