Top 3 Waiver Wire Adds (under 50% rostered)

  1. Casey Mittelstadt, Buffalo Sabers (19% rostered) — A highly touted prospect a few years ago, Mittelstadt has fallen with many Sabres fans into an untrusted space. Well, he has four goals in the last six games.
  2. Chandler Stephenson, Las Vegas Golden Knights (31% rostered) — Currently on the Golden Knights’ top line, Stephenson has three goals and six point in his last six games.
  3. Dustin Tokarski, Sabers (3% rostered) — Tokarski isn’t winning but he’s playing well and now has a 2.36 GAA with a .931 SV% over the last week.
  4. Jake Oettinger, Dallas Stars (30% rostered) — A bonus pick this week. Oettinger is not starting as much as Anton but it’s a favorable week with a back to back set of games in favorable matchups.

Top 3 Players Gone Cold (over 50% rostered)

  1. Matthew Tkachuk, Calgary Flames (97% rostered) — Tkachuk has just two points (both assists) across his last six games where he is -1 across that time.
  2. Claude Giroux, Philadelphia Flyers (99% rostered) — Giroux has just two points (both assists) across his last five games. He’s hardely shooting on goal these days, he has just eight shots TOTAL across his last eight games.
  3. John Gibson, Anaheim Ducks (55% rostered) — Gibson is winless across four of his last five starts allowing four goals twice.
