Tommy Novak (5th on Team in Points with 34 in 43 Games)
Without a doubt, Novak has to be on this list first and foremost. He hasn’t missed a beat and has become the most consistent offensive driver for the Predators after the injury loss of Filip Forsberg way back in mid-February.
Effectively, Novak has done a commendable job at filling in the void of Forsberg’s absence. Now, of course, Novak isn’t on the superstar level of Forsberg, but at least he has made up for a good chunk of that missed production.
For all of the flaws the Predators have presented on offense, at least Novak has been there to provide the spark. He has a current stretch going of 11 points in the last 11 games while increasing his average ice time from 11:48 his rookie season to 14:05 this season.
Novak has also produced some commendable production on the power play with four goals and four assists. Without him picking everything up so seamlessly when called upon, the Predators would’ve been dead in the water weeks ago.
