Talk about consistency.
With this penalty shot goal against the Devils on Thursday night, Cam Atkinson now has 20 on the season. This is the sixth time in his career and sixth consecutive season he has reached the 20-goal plateau.

Atkinson becomes the second player in club history to score 20 in six straight seasons. He also becomes the second-fastest player in club history to reach 20 goals, doing so in just 33 games.
#CAMSANITY now with 20 goals in 6-straight seasons, the 2nd #CBJ player to accomplish the feat (Rick Nash; 8-straight from 2003-12). At 20 goals in 33 GP, it's the 2nd-fastest to a 20-goal campaign in club history (Rick Nash; 20 goals in 31 GP in 2003-04).

The only two seasons in which Atkinson hasn't scored 20 goals?
2011-12: 7 goals in 27 games
2012-13: 9 goals in 35 games
Those are 20-goal paces, if you're into that sort of thing. #CBJ

As Rob says: not bad for 5-foot-8 sixth round draft pick, eh?
