Top 3 Waiver Wire Adds (under 50% rostered)

Jesper Bratt, NJ, LW/RW (10% rostered) — Bratt is on the Devils’ 2nd line with Jack Hughes and Kyle Palmieri. It’s a good mix of a line with experience, youth, scoring and playmaking. Jesper is on a six game point streak including two goals and four power play points.

Jason Robertson, DAL, LW (9% rostered) — Robertson got bumped up to the Stars top line with Roope Hintz and Joe Pavelski. He has seven points in his last six games including two power play points.

Alex Nedeljkovic, CAR, G (44% rostered) — As I mentioned, I tried to pick Nedeljkovic up only to find him taken in every league I was in. He has four wins in his last five starts allowing three goals or fewer (including one shutout) in EVERY game.

Top 3 Players Gone Cold (over 50% rostered)

Andrei Svechnikov, CAR, LW/RW (98% rostered) — Svechnikov has registered just two points across his last six games including just one goal on his last 27 shots.

Auston Matthews, TOR, C (100% rostered) — Matthews has two points (both assists) across his last five games. While he has three goals in his last 10 games it’s across 38 shots which is below average for his usual 16% shooting percentage.

Carter Hart, PHI, G (77% rostered) — Hart continues to struggle this season. Most recently he’s lost four of his last five allowing four goals or more in five of his last six games. He holds an atrocious 4.04 GAA and .869 SV% on the season.
