NHL Snipers in Diapers – Top Performances from Tuesday Nov. 6th

Hello and welcome back to the next list of NHL Snipers in Diapers! This is your non-stop shop for the youth movement in the NHL. You might be thinking, what in the heck does that mean? Well let me tell you!

You can easily find your lists of ‘Top 25 Under 25’ around the wide web of the world, but this will not simply just be a list of everyone 25 and under. What we will provide you (potential readers) is a daily, or near daily discussion of the slate of games the night prior and seek out some of the top performances of players age 23 and under. Today we are going to look at the nine-game slate from Tuesday, November 6th.

This can be useful in a number of ways.

  1. Seasonal Fantasy League – This can give you an idea of some of the best young talent around the league, night in and night out.
  2. DFS – If you play daily fantasy sports on DraftKingsFanDuel, or one of the many DFS websites, you may see some of these young studs’ names appear on your list. In some cases, you may find them cheaper than some of the more established talent in the league.
  3. Draft/Dynasty – Have you ever been part of a dynasty fantasy league? If not, I highly recommend it. It brings the armchair GMs out of their comfort zone and gives you the opportunity to really build your franchise from the ground up. If you do partake in a dynasty league, you know better than most that you need young talent to build your team now, and for the future.

3 Diapers of the Night

3rd Diaper: Brayden Point Lightning

Let’s keep track of how many times we say the word Point for our 3rd Diaper of the night. Brayden Point really has one of the more perfect hockey names in the NHL. Even more so because Point is averaging more than a point per game. With 19 points through 15 games, Point has almost reached double-digits in goals with nine.

Last night, Point had two points on a goal and an assist with just one shot on net, and one hit. Point is currently riding a three-game point streak, and had a career night on the Halloween eve, with 5 points on a goal and 4 assists. The Point counter ends at 10!

2nd Diaper: Colin White Senators

With the Sens putting up slate-high 7 goals, it makes sense as to why two of the three diapers come from that game. We will talk about the other next. White scored the GWG in the 2nd period, and the team never looked back from there. White would go on to add another goal on the power play later in the 2nd.

The 21-year old, and 2015 first round pick, finished with 2 goals and 3 shots on goal. He also contributed a hit and a blocked shot. His season long numbers do not indicate much in the way of assurance, but he has improved upon his six points from last year. Through 15 games, he has reached nine points.

1st Diaper: Thomas Chabot Senators

The Senators’ game did not start according to plan, unless the plan was to give up the first two goals. Chabot helped lead the comeback, and the eventual victory by cutting the deficit in half midway through the 1st period. He would continue to ride the wave, and add two more assists and nine shots on goal. Chabot once again led the team in ice time with 24:23 and finished the game as a +3.

In 15 games, Chabot has already matched his career high in assists achieved last year in 63 games. It is a breakout season, as he is peppering the goalie with shots and racking up the assists. Imagine the possibilities when fellow diaper, Brady Tkachuk, comes back!
