It really seems like Jason Robertson came out of absolutely nowhere, but he is currently in his third season of NHL play. Robertson scored a career high 79 games last year, and he his completely eclipsing it this season.
Robertson has scored 46 goals and 63 assists for 109 points. There is no reason why he wouldn’t be the number one player in our Top 10 NHL Left Wings 2023 Rankings.

This is going to be a hot take, but Mikko Rantanen is the best winger in the NHL right now. Pasta and Kuch are both outstanding players with more points than the Moose, but they are on stacked teams.
Mikko has had to carry the Avalanche in certain parts of the 2022-2023 NHL season and has scored 55 goals and 50 assists for 105 points in 82 games.
Runner Up: Nikita Kucherov – Tampa Bay Lightning

Unquestionably the best center in the league, Connor McDavid’s speed, skill, and hockey IQ are unparalleled. The two-time Hart Trophy winner consistently dominates the ice, leading the league in scoring and creating highlight-reel plays.
Some people believe No. 97 may be the greatest player to ever play the game based on what we see from him every single night. He is without a doubt the world’s greatest hockey player at the moment, but that is a discussion for another day.
Runner Up: Sidney Crosby – Pittsburgh Penguins

Team: Pittsburgh Penguins
2022 Stats: 25 Goals, 76 Assists, 101 Points
There was a time where when you said offensive defensemen, you thought of Erik Karlsson and not so much Cale Makar. This season, though, Erik Karlsson is back with a vengeance.
Great play aside, I think he wanted to get out of San Jose and start playing playoff hockey again. He got his wish with the Pittsburgh Penguins. This past season, as the guy in San Jose, Karlsson has 25 goals and 76 assists for 101 points.
Runner Up: Josh Morrissey – Winnipeg Jets

The question of the 2022-2023 NHL season is, where did Linus Ullmark come from? The Sabres drafted him 163rd overall in 2012 but didn’t come over from Sweden until 2015.
Ullmark was the starter for the Sabres for the better part of four seasons before leaving as a free agent in 2021. This season he has exploded, going 40-6 in 48 starts and has a GAA of 1.89 and an SV% of .938. He is currently the best goalie in hockey.
Runner Up: Filip Gustavsson – Minnesota Wild

Jim Montgomery is currently the best coach in the NHL and is the comeback story of the season. Montgomery started his NHL career with the Stars back in 2018 and was their coach till about 2020 before announcing he admitted himself into rehab.
The firing was a wake-up call for the now great coach. The past offseason he was named the head coach of the Bruins and has led them to a 65-12-5 record and 135 points.
