It is crazy to think that the fantasy hockey season is about to reach the month of December. Some fantasy teams are either rolling or really bad. If you are rolling good for you and if you aren’t well I am sorry it isn’t going your way. There is still enough time to save your season if it isn’t going well.
Riley Sheahan, Pittsburgh Penguins: Riley Sheahan has been a lot on the second line recently because of the injury to Evgeni Malkin. Sheahan has actually been playing well on the second line with Conor Sheary and Phil Kessel. This is a good sign for the Penguins because once Malkin comes back from his injury, Sheahan will be a serious threat on the third line. He has scored one goal and recorded five assists in 24 games so far this season. His plus/minus is 2. Sheahan is owned in 7% of Fantrax Leagues. He has 56.9 fantasy points so far this season.
Bryan Little, Winnipeg Jets: Little has been one of the key role players for the Jets so far this season. He is one of the reasons why the Jets are very good. In 23 games, he has scored three goals and recorded nine assists, but his plus/minus is 3. Little is owned in 62% of Fantrax Leagues. He has 79.45 fantasy points so far this season.
Mark Letestu, Edmonton Oilers: One thing the Edmonton Oilers have lacked so far this season is depth scoring. They don’t have Beniot Pouliot and Jordan Eberle anymore. Maybe Letestu can be one of those players that steps up for the Oilers. In 24 games this season, he has scored four goals and recorded three assists. His plus/minus is -10. That might be a concern, but Letestu’s main thing is scoring and passing. It is worth the risk. Connor McDavid, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, and Leon Draisaitl can’t do everything. Letestu is owned in 15% of Fantrax Leagues. He has 76.8 fantasy point so far this season.
Daniel Sedin, Vancouver Canucks: Sedin doesn’t have the same power he used to but he is still effective when Sedin is at his best. The Canucks have been good so far this season and if Sedin ever got hot at some point, they would be even better. In 24 games this season, Sedin has scored five goals and recorded seven assists. His plus/minus -4. Sedin is owned in 41% of Fantrax Leagues. He has 47.4 fantasy points so far this season.
Joonas Donskoi, San Jose Sharks: Donskoi is one of the most underrated players for San Jose so far this season. He performs his role well. Donskoi isn’t a superstar, but a lot of teams would love to have him. He has scored seven goals and recorded five assists in 22 games so far this season. His plus/minus is 3. Donskoi is owned in 22% of Fantrax Leagues. He has 45.05 fantasy points so far this season.
Jesper Fast, New York Rangers: The Rangers are playing fast up and down the ice as of late and Fast is one of the reasons why. He is a very fast skater and can score at any moment. Fast has only scored four goals in 19 games so far this season, but he has seven assists. His plus/minus is 6. Fast is owned in 10% of Fantrax Leagues. He has 42.5 fantasy points so far this season.
Justin Braun, San Jose Sharks: The Sharks have been struggling scoring goals on defense, but they are very good at recording assists including Justin Braun. He has recorded eight assists in 22 games so far this season. His plus/minus is 8. Braun is owned in 13% of Fantrax Leagues. He has 50.4 fantasy points so far this season.
Adam Pelech, New York Islanders: Pelech has been playing more recently because of his puck possession and his ability to skate well. Pelech has played in 19 games so far this season. He has recorded seven assists and his plus/minus is 4. Pelech is owned in 12% of Fantrax Leagues. He has 33.2 fantasy points so far this season. I expect him to continue his solid play on defense.
Alex Goligoski, Arizona Coyotes: The Coyotes have dug themselves into a big hole early in the season, but they have been playing a lot better. Arizona won’t make it to the playoffs, but players like Goligoski will continue to be productive for them. He has scored two goals and recorded 10 assists in 26 games so far this season. His plus/minus is -9. That’s rough but it shouldn’t be too much of a concern if you want to take a chance on him. Goligoski is owned in 50% of Fantrax Leagues. He has 56.35 fantasy points so far this season.
Eric Comrie, Winnipeg Jets: The Jets called up him from the AHL because of an injury to backup Steve Mason. Comrie’s record with the Manitoba Moose is 8-4-1 with a .927 save percentage and a 2.30 GAA, along with one shutout. Mason wasn’t great behind Conor Hellebuyck and maybe Comrie could be the backup the Jets are looking for. Comrie is owned in 17% of Fantrax Leagues this season. He doesn’t have any fantasy points yet, but Comrie will get in a game or two this week for Winnipeg and maybe he will be the permanent backup goalie for the rest of the year.
Tristan Jarry, Pittsburgh Penguins: Jarry was outstanding in Pittsburgh’s 5-2 victory on Saturday Night against the Tampa Bay Lightning. He made 33 saves and that was his first career NHL win. Jarry would be the starter for the Penguins if it wasn’t for Matt Murray’s solid play, but Jarry will still be used anyways. Pittsburgh has another back-to-back this week on Friday and Saturday both against the Buffalo Sabres. Jarry’s record so far this season is 1-0-2 with a .918 save percentage and a 2.55 GAA. He is owned in 26% of Fantrax Leagues. Jarry has 20.8 fantasy points so far this season.
David Rittich, Calgary Flames: Eddie Lack was placed on waivers and then he was sent to the AHL because Lack cleared waivers. Rittich was called up and he won his first career game against the Colorado Avalanche 3-2. Rittich made 24 saves in that game. His save percentage is .923 and his GAA is 2.03. Rittich is owned in 10% of Fantrax Leagues. He has 14.8 fantasy points so far this season. Rittich will be the backup to Mike Smith for the rest of the season most likely and in order for Calgary to be successful, Rittich is going to have to play well.
