Kraken's Carson Soucy: Impressive despite limits

Soucy posted 10 goals, 11 assists and 97 shots on net in 64 games this season. Very few people would have predicted double-digit goals for Soucy heading into 2021-22. The 27-year-old also went plus-7 -- an impressive mark given the Kraken were outscored 194-155 at even strength (excluding extra-attacker situations). He also brought physicality with 118 hits, 73 blocked shots and 47 PIM while earning more power-play time in the last month of the campaign. Soucy will need to maintain that role with the man advantage to stay in the fantasy conversation, especially since it's unlikely he shoots 10.3 percent for another full season. He is one year away from unrestricted free agency.

Kraken's Carson Soucy: Collects pair of helpers

Soucy notched two assists and four hits in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Stars. Soucy set a new career high in points when he assisted on Jared McCann's shorthanded goal in the first period. The 27-year-old defenseman then added another assist on a Ryan Donato goal in the third. With the multi-point effort, Soucy's at 19 points, 79 shots on net, 100 hits, 55 blocked shots and a plus-8 rating through 51 appearances. He should continue to see top-four minutes, and that could make him helpful to fantasy managers in deeper formats who need to make gains in points and hits.

Soucy scored a goal on three shots, doled out three hits and added two PIM in Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Maple Leafs. Soucy scored at 5:21 of the first period to get the Kraken on the board.
