Welcome to this week’s Fantasy Hockey Forecaster! In here, you’ll find:

  • Each team’s ranking for goalies, forwards, PK and PP against the other teams in the league. These stats are as of 1/25/2019.
  • Three players who are on fire (this might not even be points wise, it might be an uptick in play that signals to me they are on the cusp of some point production
  • Three players who are cooling off (this will also include players that aren’t materializing the way we expect)
  • Three free agent pickups (among all players under 50% owned, preferably some in the single digits and some that are close to 50 to feed all different sizes of leagues)
  • The schedule which will show each team they play and what the individual rankings are for each matchup, this is more useful in the daily leagues where you are looking at individual matchups

Let’s begin!

Schedule Rank Jan 28th - Feb 3rd

29 Vancouver Canucks 1 10 22 3 3
30 Washington Capitals 2 20 11 2 2
31 Anaheim Ducks 1 1 31 1 1

3 players who are on fire

  1. Sebastian Aho (98% owned) six goals, six assists and three power play points in his last seven games.
  2. Nick Bonino (8% owned). Five goals, three assists and a plus nine in his last six games.
  3. Carey Price (99% owned) Four starts. Four wins. Four Goals Against TOTAL. 1 Shutout.

3 players who are cooling off

  1. Auston Matthews (100% owned) one goal, three assists and an abysmal -8 over his last eight games.
  2. Erik Karlsson (99% owned) he continues to be streaky and struggle to find his rhythm this year. He has no goals, 2 assists and a -1 over the last four games as the contract situation continues to loom over the Sharks heads.
  3. Braden Holtby (99% owned) Five starts, no wins, 19 goals against (almost four goals against per game).

3 free agent pickups (under 50%)

  1. Anthony DeAngelo (1% owned). This is a deep league pickup but he’s a top four defenseman for the Rangers on their 2nd PP unit. He has two goals one assist and a plus seven over his last five games. He has a respectable 12 points through 31 games.
  2. Frank Vatrano (24% owned). I’m a BIG Frank fan and I’m glad he’s seeing some serious NHL minutes. He lit it up with UMass Amherst but couldn’t find solid footing with the Bruins. He has four goals and four assists over his last six games not to mention a +3.
  3. Carter Hart (40% owned). I brought him up a month ago and I’m reiterating, his last three starts – all wins, 3 GAA over that time, it’s a very serviceable goalie in deep leagues.
