Sissons is top-20 in Predators history for goals with 84, which ties him with Matt Duchene. Obviously in much more games than Duchene, but Sissons is the lifelong member of the Nashville Predators and it's cool to see him having this little offensive outburst in his 10th NHL season.

Look no further than Sissons' Points Per 60 Minutes to see how he's crushing his previous offensive outputs in his NHL career. Sissons is right at two points per 60 minutes, with his previous career high being 1.5 per 60 in 2018-19.

Sissons has also doubled his goals per 60 based on his first nine years of his NHL career. Much of this is due to Andrew Brunette's offensive philosophy and Sissons getting new opportunities to show some offense that he didn't get under previous head coach John Hynes.

So my Christmas wish for Sissons is to break his career high in points which is 30 points set twice. He's already at 19 points and has played in all 34 games. He played in all 82 games last season. He's just a workhorse, and it's awesome to see him getting in on the offense more so than ever this late in his career.

Sissons (184 career points) has some work to do to move up the Predators all-time point list, with Duchene up next at 197, Calle Jarnkrok at 211 and Patric Hornqvist at 216. Sissons sits 25th all time Predators history.
