Silfverberg scored his 12th of the season in the third period of Wednesday's win over the Kings.

That gives Silfverberg four points over his current three game streak, a nice little run for the 24-year-old. While his 35 points in 71 games isn't the most impressive feat, he is fourth in scoring for the league-leading Ducks, and has steadily improved his point totals over his first three seasons in the league. Silfverberg makes a solid depth contributor, especially in leagues that count shots on goal.

Silfverberg collected a goal and two assists in Tuesday's win over the Coyotes.

The points give him 30 total on the year (10 G, 20 A), already well above his previous best of 23 last season. The Ducks forward core is a fairly crowded bunch at the moment, so the 24 year old will probably continue to have a hard time consistently hitting the scoresheet. However, he has fired 144 shots on goal this season, making him an intriguing option in leagues that count that stat.

In the four games prior to Tuesday, the winger had four points (two goals, two assists), and saw a bump in ice time to over 16 minutes in the final two games. His official status regarding Wednesday's contest is still a bit unclear, but it should be revealed at some point prior to the game.

Silfverberg opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal and added another at even strength in Thursday's 5-2 win over Nashville. He also went plus-3 with two PIM.

What's more impressive than scoring a goal on Pekka Rinne? Scoring two of 'em. Silfverberg's starting to warm up, with four points in the last four games, but it's worth noting that before he put six shots on goal Thursday, he'd managed just one in the four prior games combined.

Silfverberg fired home two goals Friday as the Ducks beat the visiting Devils handily by a score of 5-1.

The tallies snap a 12-game goalless drought for the Swede, which is a somewhat surprising slump considering he fired 26 shots on goal during that span. With 112 shots on the year -- and only six goals for a shooting percentage of just 5.4 percent -- Silfverberg is a prime candidate to go off on a goal-scoring binge in the second half, so you may want to add him to your watch list, especially if your league counts shots.
