Currently, the Edmonton Oilers sit comfortably in the second spot in the Pacific Division. They've done a better job of getting production for players not named Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl.

In fact, their leader in goals is none other than Zack Hyman. The Toronto native is tied for second in the NHL with 51 goals, boosting the Oilers offensively. Many NHL fans have been skeptical of the Oilers winning a Stanley Cup, even with the two best players in the world. But with their winger stepping up, that narrative might change this season.
