This is great news for Rantanen's owners, as missing the Art Ross Trophy candidate for any period of time would register as a major blow. It sounds like Rantanen has a good chance of returning at the first available opportunity Monday against Nashville, but interested parties should still keep their eyes peeled for more concrete news on that front.

Rantanen continues to put up incredible numbers, as the two assists got him to 71 points on the year, tied with Calgary's Johnny Gaudreau for second in the league (with Gaudreau having played one more game). Rantanen produces night after night, and he looks like he'll be a fantasy factor for a long time to come.
