Bouma scored his 14th goal of the year -- the game-winner -- and added an assist in Monday's 3-2 win over the visiting Avalanche.

Bouma has been clutch with his goal scoring, as four of his 14 tallies have been game-winning goals. The 24-year-old has been something of a revelation this season, putting up 30 points after recording just 19 in his first 121 games in the NHL.

Bouma potted his 13th goal of the season and had an assist in Saturday's loss to Colorado.

It was Bouma's first points in six games, giving him 28 points and a plus-13 rating in 67 games on the season. While the 24-year-old's been inconsistent, he's shown promise, and with 50 PIM, the second-liner is a decent all-around fantasy option in some deeper leagues.

Bouma picked up his 11th goal of the season Wednesday in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Wild.After scoring only 15 points in 78 games last season, Bouma has already recorded 24 in 56 contests this year. He is connecting on a stellar 17.5 percent of his shots this year, so he certainly is making the most of his opportunities. He's not necessarily much of a fantasy contributor yet, but if he keeps improving he may have some value in a year or two.
