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)

  • Michael Bunting (LW, Tor) 37% owned. As a rookie Bunting is currently second in points behind only Lucas Raymond. He’s first in goals and a good component of that is him being on the Maple Leafs’ top line with Auston Mathews and Mitch Marner.
  • Matt Boldy (LW, Min) 33% owned. Matt now has eight points in his last seven games (four goals and four assists). He’s meshed well on Minnesota’s second line with Kevin Fiala and Frederick Gaudreau.
  • Sam Montembeault (G, Mon) 8% owned. Sam has three straight wins, allowing 2 goals or less in each start (and accumulating one SO in the process).

Top 3 Players Gone Cold (over 50% rostered)

  • Adam Fox (D, NYR) 99% owned. The talented defenseman has two assists in his last five games and he has not scored in his last nine games.
  • Evgeny Kuznetsov (C, Was) 95% owned. Evgeny has just two points (both assists) in his last five games. He has been held scoreless on his last 14 shots on goal.
  • Cam Talbot (G, Min) 92% owned. Cam has lost three straight games allowing at least four goals in each one of those games. Over the last two weeks his stat line is 0-3; 4.49 GAA and .87 SV%.
