Saturday was the biggest night for fantasy hockey owners so far this season with 14 games on the schedule. If you had a couple of the following players. Your fantasy team had a good weekend!

John Tavares - JT had three goals and an assist against rival Rangers. In my opinion this is going to be a breakout season for Tavares, he's just getting started.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - RNH recorded his first National Hockey League Hat-trick in a 4-3 loss to the Vancouver Canucks.

Phil Kessel - Maple Leafs fans are in love with this guy, eight points in three games will do that for a player. (5G 3A), Kessel had two goals along with an assist the win over Calgary.

Sami Salo - This guy spoiled the Nugent-Hopkins party in Edmonton with two goals and an assist to help the Vancouver Canucks secure two points.

Johan Franzen - The Detroit Red Wings are undefeated so far this season at a mark of 4-0 Franzen has played a huge role in that. His point streak stands at three games and four points with a goal and an assist in Saturday's win over the Wild.

David Jones - Jones had two goals and an assist in Saturday's 6-5 OT win over Montreal. He's off to a quick start with four points in five games.

Mike Ribeiro - Ribeiro picked up three helpers in Saturday's win over the Jackets. That's five assists in five games, who needs Brad Richards?

Oliver Ekman-Larsson - Ekman-Larsson led the Coyotes to a 4-1 win over the Jets on Saturday night. He scored twice, including the game-winner.

Brian Gionta - Gionta had a three-point night Saturday in a 6-5 shootout loss to Colorado.

Tomas Vokoun - Vokoun had 33 saves Saturday night, allowing just one goal with 26 seconds left in the first period of the Caps' 2-1 win versus Ottawa on Saturday.
