A Suprising Top Scorer

No realistic predictions at the beginning of this season had Jonathan Cheechoo breaking out as well as he was this season. His 41 goals so far make him the fourth highest goal scorer in the NHL. He has meshed very well with Joe Thornton who was acquired from Boston via trade this season. Thornton leads the NHL in points right now. He leads the NHL in assists as well. Many of these assists have been Cheechoo goals. Cheechoo caught fire after the trade and has remained hot (for example since February 1st he leads the NHL with his 13 goals).

Cheechoo came into the season as a rising young talent. He was fresh off a San Jose run to the semi-finals in 2004 where he was one of the team's better players. He was a very good later round sleeper pick in hockey pool drafts, but nobody realistically expected as many goals as he has scored.
