Anonymous Roundtable

Which players have performed exceptionally over the last month in virtual anonymity?

Brian Rosenbaum: I would start with Mathieu Perreault. In his last eight games, he has registered 10 points and few have noticed. He has meshed extremely well with Bryan Little and Patrik Laine to form one of the NHL's most potent second lines. Perreault is always under the radar in terms of his value in both real and fantasy hockey and the Jets were astute to sign him to a three-year, $9 million contract in 2014. They will have to pony up if they want to retain Perreault's services beyond July 1st. 
Ryan Dadoun: As of Saturday morning he hasn't recorded a point in his last two games, so maybe it's over, but Viktor Arvidsson went on a run of 11 goals and 17 points in 15 games.  The 23-year-old's hot streak has largely come out of nowhere as he had just 20 goals in 110 NHL games before it started.  The timing's also good for him given that he'll be a restricted free agent this summer.

Corey Abbott: Arizona hasn't had much to cheer about this season, but the return of Radim Vrbata has been a bright spot.  He has been one of the more productive players in the league over the last 30 days with 14 points.  Vrbata has also been on a scoring tear since January with 25 points in the past 30 contests.

Michael Finewax: Perreault, Arvidsson and Vrbata are all good choices. How about Bo Horvat? He has scored 20 goals and registered 46 points in 67 games so far this season on a very bad Vancouver team. In fact, given that the Canucks are collectively one of the worst plus/minus squads in the league, Horvat's even rating is nothing short of remarkable.
