Fantasy Hockey Waiver Wire Players to Pickup

 Here are some players you should consider picking up for Fantasy Hockey:

David Krejci

David Krejci is back and it seems like he never left; Krejci centers  "The Czech Line", which features David Pastrnak and Pavel Zacha. The line has gotten off to a terrific start and he has done a great job filling in for Brad Marchand on the Powerplay as well. Krejci has 1 goal, 3 assists, and 1 PPP, along with 15 FW so far this season. 

Nic Dowd

Nic Dowd is not a player who should be owned in standard leagues, but if you are in a CAT league, which includes FW and Hits, he should definitely be rostered. Dowd is top 50 in FW amongst centers so far this season and he leads Centers in hits. Down has 1 goal, 1 assist, 23 FW, 19 hits, and 3 blocks, which makes for a very good fantasy stat line.

Jaden Schwartz

Jaden Schwartz has gotten off to a terrific start to the season, putting up 2 goals, 1 assist and 2 PPP along with 13 SOG, and 8 hits. When healthy Schwartz is a very productive player, but the issue is he hasn't been healthy for the past two years. With a start like this, it would be tough to pass up taking a flyer on him because he is finally being played with NHL-caliber talent.

Gabriel Vilardi

It's crazy that Gabriel Vilardi is only rostered in 13% of Fantasy leagues with the type of start that he has had to the season. Vilardi already has 3 goals, 2 assists, 10 SOG, and is a +3 so far this season, playing on a line with fellow young studs Quinton Byfield and Arthur Kalieyv. That third line for LA has worked wonders and will be the reason why the LA Kings will be tough to play against this year.

Calen Addison

Calen Addison is going to be a beast this year for the Minnesota Wild if he can sustain the production that he has had early on in the season. Addison has 4 assists and 3 PPPs but is a -5 so far this season; while the +/- is bad, Addison's PP production may be good enough to offset that. Addison is playing on Minnesota's 1st PP unit at the moment so if he can remain productive in the spot, he will have fantasy value.

Arber Xhekaj

Not many people had this defenseman on their radar before the season began but now he has become a must-own player in banger leagues. Xhekaj already has 16 hits and 7 blocks along with 5 SOG to go along with 1 point, which is excellent production in leagues with hits and blocks. If Arber is still available for some reason in your league, scoop him up fast.

Karel Vejmelka

It is a big risk to own a goalie for the Arizona Coyotes but if you are in a league that counts saves and you need a 4th string goalie, Vejmelka might be the goalie you want to get. He has already faced 123 shots in 3 games and stopped 110 of them; his 110 saves is 15 more than the next closes goalie, John Gibson. Vejmelka is a high-risk high-reward pickup, but on a good night, you could get a 35+ SV win.

C Sean Couturier -After missing 2+ years, Sean Couturier is back and it seems like he hasn't missed a beat. Believe it or not, Couturier has been one of the top centers in the league so far with his all-around play, putting up 2 goals, 3 assists, 2 PPP, 63 FW, 24 SOG, and 1 SHP. Despite showing that he is still an elite center, Couturier is only owned in 20% of fantasy leagues. Pick him up now, while you still can. Ryan Johansen - Serves as the Avalanche's 2nd line center and plays on their all-world 1st pp unit. Despite not being the player he used to be, Johansen is still a valuable fantasy asset because of the players he plays with. Johansen has 4 goals and 4 PPPs along with 63 FW so far this season. He is owned in 29% of fantasy leagues. Sean Monahan - Someone must have gotten a time machine and put Sean Monahan in it because he is playing like he was back when he was in his prime. Monahan has been arguably the best player on Montreal this year, with 3 goals, 6 points, 2 PP


Here are some players you should pickup in Fantasy Hockey, sorted by position. Center Colton Sissons Colton Sissons is one of the best 4th line centers in the league, but in fantasy hockey, he could be even more valuable than he actually is in real life because of what he provides in the peripheral categories. So far this season Sissions has 5 goals, 1 PPP, 1 SHP, 12 PIM, 20 SOG, 89 FW, 15 hits, and 9 blocks. This is a terrific stat line and although you can't count on Sissons scoring a ton, he will fill out the FW, Hits, and blocks usually. Sissons is owned in 6% of fantasy leagues, snag him up while you can. Nick Bjugstad Nick Bjugstad is having an excellent year so far with the Arizona Coyotes, in fact he has played so well that he earned himself a promotion to play on the 2nd line along with Mattias Maccelli and Lawson Crouse. Bjugstad also gets time on Arizona's 2nd PP unit and 2nd PK unit. Bjugstad may not be a name who stands out to casuals, but his fantasy stat line is

Fantasy Hockey Forwards to Trade For

Here is a list of Players who you should consider trading for in Fantasy Hockey. Tage Thompson Tage Thompson had very high expectations of him heading into this season but has been a massive disappointment to this point in the season with only 7 goals, 8 assists, 4 PPP, 60 SOG, and 99 FW. Thompson has been better after coming back from injury and you would think that he is going to eventually start putting points in bunches. Because of how bad Thompson's statline is this season. it would be a good idea to trade for him because you may not have to give up a lot in return.  Elias Lindholm Elias Lindholm is another player who has had a slow start to the season with only 7 goals, 10 assists, 3 PPP, 68 SOG, and 297 FW so far this season. Lindholm is definitely going to want to play better if he wants to increase his value for his next contract and also showcase himself for a trade at the deadline. If Lindholm gets dealt to a contending team, his fantasy value would drastically improve b
