Zajac Back in Business

(5/2/12) Travis Zajac scored his fifth goal of the playoffs Tuesday, and he now sits tied for 7th in postseason scoring, with 8 points.  He's a player who was likely forgotten about at a lot of playoff drafts (unless you used our Playoff Guide!  We had him pegged as a sleeper), mostly because he spent the majority of the season injured and recovering from an Achilles tear.

Zajac has back to back 60 point seasons on his resume ('08-09, '09-10), but this season was essentially lost, as he managed just six points in 15 starts.  However, all signs point to the fact that he's finally back close to 100% and picking up where he left off.  He's looking like a steal of a pick in playoff pools this year, and he'll be a good sleeper again going into the 2012-13 season... make sure not to forget his name on draft day.
