Fantasy Hockey 2011: Pick-ups of the Week

Tyler Bozak - Toronto Maple Leafs

He's coming into his own as of late, the highly touted college signing out of University of Denver is on pace to put up some real nice numbers. He's in a great situation, centering Joffrey Lupul and Phil Kessel so the potential to put up some points is there. He's only owned in half of ESPN leagues, pick him up asap if for some reason he's still available.

Braydon Coburn - Philadelphia Flyers

Braydon's season outputs have gone down every year since the 2007/08 season but he's playing a ton of minutes and managed 4 assists last week. If you're looking for a depth guy on the blue-line, there's a lot worse you can do than a defenceman that plays a lot of minutes on one of the best scoring teams in the game.

Tyler Kennedy - Pittsburgh Penguins

Tyler is quietly improving each year, he put up 45 last season and looks to beat that mark this season. With the highly skilled Pens offence now in full swing, he's going to get opportunities. 9 points in 13 games is a good start.

Sam Gagner - Edmonton Oilers

With Taylor Hall out for an unknown time period, and Sam Gagner heating up - this one has the makings of a must pickup. He's owned in two percent of ESPN leagues if you can believe it, but that's just the kind of season it's been this far. Pick him up because he's a good talent with nice upside.

Sergei Bobrovsky - Philadelphia Flyers

This weeks pick-up goalie of the week is not Andrew Raycroft, nope, it's Sergei Bobrovsky. He's been lights out starting the last three Flyers games, despite not even getting the win in New York. With Ilya Bryzgalov's issues for the time being, see if Sergei can pick up some points for your team.
