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)

Jordan Staal (C, Car) 22% owned. Jordan is on fire right now. He has two goals and three assists in six games along with +3 over that time. He’s hardly even shooting the puck but it’s going in when he shoots. He’s on the third line with two decent wingers (Nino Neiderreiter and Jesper Fast). I don’t see this sustaining, but it’s working for the time being.

Sean Kuraly (C, CBS) 5% owned. Sean is on the Blue Jackets’ third line with Max Domi and Yegor Chinakov, and to be honest this isn’t a bad trio with talent, grind capabilities, and some shooters. He has two assists in his last three games and a +4, but he also has a number of hits, FW, and some blocked shots.

Anton Forsberg (G, Ott) 14% owned. Forsberg is on his own streak with three wins across four games started, allowing fewer than two goals in two of those four starts.

Top 3 Players Gone Cold (over 50% rostered)

Sam Bennett (C, Fla) 87% owned. Sam has no points in his last four games and he has been held off the scoring sheet across his last 10 shots on goal.

Charlie McAvoy (D, Bos) 98% owned. McAvoy has no points in his last eight games.

Philipp Grubauer (G, Sea) 60% owned. Grubauer has now lost four straight games, allowing three goals or more in three of those four starts (one game vs. Toronto he allowed three goals on eight shots).
