Fantasy Hockey 2011 - Super Sleepers


Tim Erixon - New York Rangers

Tim Erixon started the season in the Big Apple, but after 9 games played and zero points, it was obvious he needed some fine tuning on the farm. Since then, in 13 games with the Connecticut Whale he's put up 12 points in 13 games. The Rangers are have a few guys banged up on the back end: Enter Tim Erixon.

Drayson Bowman - Carolina Hurricanes

If it wasn't for his performance last night against Vancouver, he would have not made this list. Since he almost potted a hatty, he's made the cut. It was an impressive second game since being called up - coach Kirk Muller gave him the green light with 19 minutes of playing time, showing off his offensive ability with 2 goals on 8 shots.

Richard Bachman - Dallas Stars

He's taking advantage of an opportunity of a life-time. With Kari Lehtonen out till at least after Christmas (realistically till the New Year), Richard Bachman in four straight starts has 3 wins, 1 being a shut-out, a .970 SV%, and get this... 0.90 GAA. Remember Kari Lehtonen isn't the most stable goalie, Bachman could have secured himself a spot as the full-time backup - at the very least. Sorry Andrew Raycroft.

Kyle Palmieri - Anaheim Ducks

Lets take a look at his AHL numbers, 26 points in 18 games. Of those 26 points, 17 are goals. There is no denying he has talent and with the Ducks trying to find answers on how to put the puck in the back of the net, Kyle could help out. He finds himself on the top line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, and he's getting time on the PP. Pick him up immediately if he's still available.

Tomas Tatar - Detroit Red Wings

The reasoning behind Tomas Tatar's recent call up is because one of the Red Wings forwards appear to be banged up according to Ken Holland. He'll most likely be sent down by the end of the weekend, but keep a eye on this kid. After a 57 point season last year, he's tallied 21 points in 26 games this season. He could be a top-six forward in Motown very soon.
