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 3/6/2020
  • 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. Mika Zibanejad (94% owned) — I think I can ignore everything outside of the fact that he scored 5 goals in one game.
  2. Leon Draisaitl (100% owned) — In his last four games he has six goals and five assists not to mention +7.
  3. Carter Hart (86% owned) — Now 18-2-2 at home, Carter has won his last six starts.

3 players who are cooling off

  1. John Tavares (99% owned) — Goal less across his last four games and 12 shots, he has just one assist in his last three games with a -2.
  2. Jack Eichel (100% owned) — No points in six games and a -7 to go along with it.
  3. Marc-Andre Fleury (99% owned) — Lost the last two games with seven total goals allowed

3 free agent pickups (under 50%)

  1. Dylan Strome (21% owned) — Four points in his last three games, I haven’t given up on you yet, especially as you continue to tease time with Toews and Kane.
  2. Samuel Girard (27% owned) — With one goal and four assists in his last five games, the team has noticed and he’s seeing more playing time.
  3. Alex Stalock (34% owned) — He has five wins in his last six starts. Over those starts he has a shutout and just 11 goals allowed (under 3 GAA).
