Mauricio Pereyra

Stats: 3 A, 19 KP, 29 SCA

It's been a weird season for Mauricio Pereyra. Orlando's new captain started the year really slow, but over the last month or so he's been phenomenal. He's creating chances, orchestrating play and controlling the tempo.

Everything you want from a DP No. 10 and captain, Pereyra's delivering. With so many fresh faces in attack, Pereyra is the leader and star that's putting all the pieces together. I will knock him a tiny bit because of the slow start, but he's really picked it up when his team needed it most.

Grade: B+
