NHL Fantasy Hockey Forecaster: January 3rd – 9th

Ross Colton has caught my eye.

NHL: Tampa Bay Lightning at Philadelphia Flyers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to my weekly Fantasy Hockey Forecaster! Here you will find:

  • Top 3 waiver wire adds (among all players under 50% rostered at ESPN)
  • Top 3 players who have gone “cold”
  • Each team’s schedule ranking based on opponent’s points allowed, where the #1 ranked team plays teams allowing the most points so far this season

Top 3 Waiver Wire Adds (under 50% rostered)

Ross Colton (C, TB) 14% owned. Ross is currently on the Lightning top line with Steven Stamkos and Ondrej Palat. Across the last two weeks (five games), he has two goals, one assist, 17 shots and 15 hits.

Nicholas Roy (C, VGS) 14% owned. While Roy is manning the third line for Vegas with Mattias Janmark and Keegan Kolesar, he’s on the top PP line with William Karlsson, Jonathan Marchessault, and Reilly Smith. He is pulling 15+ minutes ATOI lately and has four points in his last four games including a PPP, 11 SOG and 7 hits.

Antti Raanta (G, Car) 18% owned. Starting the last two straight for the Hurricanes, Antti has a 2.25 GAA and .914 sv% with a SO over those two games.

Top 3 Players Gone Cold (over 50% rostered)

Tyson Barrie (D, Edm) 93% owned. Barrie has been held pointless across his last four games. He has no goals across his last 13 shots on goal.

Nick Suzuki (C Mon) 74% owned. Nick has one goal (and one total point) across his last seven games. During that time he has had 21 SOG; he has however kept a steady compilation of hits with 12 over that time.

Cam Talbot (G, Min) 94% owned. Cam has gone ice cold. He’s lost four straight allowing over five goals in three of those four losses. He has a 7.78 GAA and .786 sv% over that time.
