Fantasy Hockey 2011 - Super Sleepers

Darren Helm - Detroit Red Wings

I can see Darren Helm being a consistent 40-45 point scorer in this league someday. Last season he managed 32 points and after a slow start this season which saw him only get 5 points in the first 26 games, he has 7 points in his last 8 games. He's catching fire centering Dan Cleary and Drew Miller.

Niklas Hagman - Anaheim Ducks

I never thought it would come to this, I'm pretty sure the Anaheim Ducks are thinking the same way. Niklas Hagman is playing alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry on the number one line. You may also think that 7 points in 7 games is also a typo - it isn't. We all thought he was done, as long as he's getting minutes he's useful.

Jaroslav Spacek - Carolina Hurricanes

Even though Raleigh may just be a pit stop for Jaroslav Spacek (expiring contract, good salary, will be highly touted at the deadline) he's making the most of his stay. Averaging about 19:00 TOI since coming to Carolina, he's been used in all situations and 4 points in 5 games as a Hurricane ain't too shabby.

Carlo Colaiacovo - St. Louis Blues

If it weren't for the injuries, Carlo could have had enjoyed a career year. Despite playing 12 less games than Alex Pietrangelo, they have the same amount of points. By how the season is going for Pietrangelo, I wouldn't be surprised if Colaiacovo had more points at the end of the year. Carlo has been steady with 4 assists in his last 6 games since returning from injury.

Jamie McGinn - San Jose Sharks

When fans think of Jamie McGinn, they probably think of a utility player that plays on the 3rd/4th line with minimal ice time. All that is true. But did you know he's showed flashes of offensive ability in the past? At the AHL level he was close to a point/game average, in juniors same thing. If only he could get more ice time than the 11:21 TOI he's averaging right now. It hasn't stopped him from 6 points in 7 games.

Lauri Korpikoski - Phoenix Coyotes

He was once considered one of the marquee offensive prospects coming out of Europe, its taken a while to materialize but he finally showed glimpses after posting a 40 point season last year. He's got 4 goals in his last 7 games, he shouldn't be a super sleeper, he should be an immediate pick-up.
