Appleton scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Kings.
Appleton finished off an odd-man rush late in the second period for his second goal in as many games. The 24-year-old isn't asked to be a big offensive contributor, but he has found the net four times in his last 11 games after scoring just once in his first 25. Appleton is a real-life bottom-six winger who's best left on the fantasy waiver wire.
Appleton scored a goal on five shots and dished a helper in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Blackhawks.
Appleton's two points came in the second period to help the Jets take a 2-1 lead at the time. The 24-year-old is up to seven points, 40 shots and a minus-9 rating through 35 games this season. His lack of physicality -- Appleton has just 17 hits and 10 PIM -- makes him unlikely to help fantasy owners much.
Appleton scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Predators.
Appleton struck just 2:46 into the game, but it would be the Jets' only tally. The 24-year-old now has three goals and an assist through 29 contests this season. He saw second-line usage Tuesday, but it's still too early to trust the winger from a fantasy perspective.
