Ryan O'Reilly - Colorado Avalanche

After back-to-back 26 point seasons in his first two seasons, Ryan has 21 in 27. For whatever reasons he's still under the radar, only owned in 37% of ESPN leagues. He's lighting it up, 7 points in 3 games. Not a lot has gone right in Colorado this season, Ryan O'Reilly is the exception.


Matt Moulson - New York Islanders

6 goals in 3 games will get noticed. He's not even owned in 50% of ESPN leagues. 30 goal back to back seasons under his belt, we shouldn't be surprised. Expect more of the same this season. Pick him up.


Saku Koivu - Anaheim Ducks

Old reliable here. If you need a depth forward you know will chip in at times, Saku is your man. He's got on the score sheet in the last 6 out of 8 games - he's a 2nd line center, playing on the 2nd PP unit. You know what you're going to get from Saku.

Bryan Little - Winnipeg Jets

After a horrible start, Bryan Little has turned his season around. In fact that entire Jets second line of Evander Kane & Blake Wheeler is heating up. 7 points in 6 games has made Little a must pick-up if you haven't already.

Adam Henrique - New Jersey Devils

Any time a player centers Ilya Kovalchuk & Zach Parise, that brings in instant fantasy relevance. Henrique has done well in his opportunity and has 6 points in his last 5 games. The rookie has the the likes of RNH, Craig Smith & Matt Read for Calder discussion.

Ondrej Pavelec - Winnipeg Jets

Even though his SV% & GAA isn't anything close to spectacular, he plays a lot of games - starting all but 3 games in the 26 games played so far. He's been awesome in his last two appearances and has lifted the Jets back into playoff contention. The formula to finding good fantasy goalies is appearances plus momentum of the team in front of him. He's got both going on.
