Welcome to the 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 11/8/2019 (there is no separation for home vs. away since the season is so young).
  • 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!

3 players who are on fire

  1. Jean-Gabriel Pageau (24% owned). With a shutout the other day, Jean-Gabriel now has four goals in three games, a +4 over that time, 9 SOG and five hits.
  2. Ryan O’Reilly (91% owned) Ryan is getting faceoffs (as he always does) with 68 over his last six games, during that time he has three goals, six assists, a +2 and five blocked shots.
  3. David Rittich (81% owned) 4 wins in his last 6 games with 1 shutout and 14 goals allowed over that time inclusive of the 198 saves he’s made.

3 players who are cooling off (not panicking on any of them)

  1. Sidney Crosby (100% owned) Over the last two weeks, Sidney has just 1 goal and 2 assists. This means I’m priming for an upcoming point streak.
  2. Jack Eichel (99% owned). After a strong start, he has cooled off a bit. The last two weeks has brought him three points over six games which includes a -2.
  3. Andrei Vasilevskiy (100% owned) No wins across his last three starts, 3+goals allowed in two of them and a .892 save% over his last 5 starts. He will turn the corner but a rough start for last years Vezina winner.

3 free agent pickups (under 50%)

  1. Joel Farabee (14% owned) – I highlighted him in an article the other day, the 1st round pick is off to a solid start and is playing on a line with Claude Giroux and James Van Riemsdyk
  2. Dylan Strome (27% owned). I’m highlighting a new Strome each week. Dylan is currently on a line with Patrick Kane and Alex DeBrincat. They aren’t doing great but at some point soon they will start to light the lamp and Dylan will become the beneficiary of it.
  3. Alex Stalock (9% owned). He’s up and down with his starts as of late with 2 wins in his last four. Two games with 2 goals allowed or less and 2 games with 4 goals or more allowed. Upcoming games against Arizona and LA , Minnesota has a top 8 matchup for goalies this week.
