Top 3 Waiver Wire Adds (under 50% rostered)

  1. Adrian Kempe LA, C/LW (13% owned) — Kempe has moved into a nice spot on the second Kings line alongside up and coming Gabriel Vilardi and vet Jeff Carter. It has worked well as Kempe has a four game point streak.
  2. Jack Roslovic CBJ, C (39% rostered) — For the time being, Roslovic has been promoted to the top line alongside Patrick Laine and Cam Atkinson, that’s a lethal duo to work with.
  3. Mike Smith EDM, G (32% rostered) — In two starts recently Smith has allowed one total goal stopping 66/67 shots.

Top 3 players gone cold (over 50% rostered)

  1. Mika Zibanejad NYR, C (94% rostered) — It has not been a good month for Zibanejad. He has just one assist since January 22nd (spanning nine games).
  2. Brendan Gallagher MON, RW (91% rostered) — Gallagher has one point in his last five games. It’s a goal but even the hits have been somewhat absent with just eight hits across those five games which has trended into a below average season for him on the physical front.
  3. Braden Holtby VAN, G (64% rostered) — Holtby has allowed 3+ goals among three straight loses.
