Top 3 Waiver Wire Adds (under 50% rostered)

Eeli Tolvanen, NSH, LW/RW (37% rostered) — Tolvanen is on a tear lately, fresh off a six game streak where he put up nine points including three goals.

Phil Kessel, ARI, LW (39% rostered) — How crazy is it that Kessel is just 39% rostered? Phil has five goals in his last four games.

Casey DeSmith, PIT, G (44% rostered) — DeSmith has won three of his last four starts with a shutout and no more than two goals allowed in each start.

Top 3 players gone cold (over 50% rostered)

Patrik Laine, CLB, LW/RW (84% rostered) — It looked like Laine had turned the corner and then he went pointless over another five games as he continues to adjust to the new surroundings.

John Tavares, TOR, C (99% rostered) — Tavares has just two points across his last six games and just one goal in his last 17 shots.

Jordan Binnington, STL, G (93% rostered) — Binnington has lost four straight allowing two goals or more in each matchup.
