#14 Mattias Ekholm

Mattias Ekholm is going to round out the Who’s Hot. Ekholm has jumped into the offense more during this season and it is showing. While he only has 1 goal and 4 assists (5 points) on the season he has been a major factor in the defensive zone as well as offensive zone. Ekholm is on pace for 27 points this season.

Ekholm’s play in the in the defensive end is what has stuck out the most and is what has led to him currently being a +3 in the +/- column which is tied with Cole Smith for the lead on the Nashville Predators roster. Every night Ekholm puts his body on the line in the defensive end blocking pucks and clearing the net front.
