Top 3 Waiver Wire Adds (under 50% rostered)

  1. Alex Killorn, TB, LW (42% owned) — A line shake up in Tampa Bay has paid off handsomely for the 14 year vet. The 2nd line is now Alex, Yanni Gourde and Steven Stamkos. Additionally, he is on their top PP unit which has allowed him to net three PPP in his last eight games. Over that time he has seven total points and four goals.
  2. Matt Grzelcyk, BOS, D (43% rostered) — I’ve been waiting for him to blossom all season given the opportunity the Bruins have given him on some of the top units. Five points in his last six games (three of them on the power play).
  3. Devan Dubnyk, SJ, G (20% rostered) — Dubnyk has rekindled some of his old dominance in net. Across his last four starts he has only allowed three goals or more once, he has a shutout and at least 32 saves in his last three.

Top 3 Players Gone Cold (over 50% rostered)

  1. Blake Wheeler, WPG, C/RW (97% rostered) — Wheeler has just two points in his last seven games and just one goal over his last 20 shots.
  2. Johnny Gaudreau, CGY, LW/RW (96% rostered) — After a brief hot streak, Gaudreau has just one point in his last four games
  3. Frederik Andersen, Tor, G (97% rostered) — Toronto has hit a speed bump and Andersen is in the middle of it. Five of the Maple Leafs last six games have yielded losses and Andersen has allowed three or more goals in four of his last five games.
