Fantasy Hockey Waiver Wire for NHL Week 4

This edition of the fantasy hockey waiver wire wasn’t initially meant to be so heavily slanted towards players in the Pacific division. Perhaps lower expectations for where their teams would place in the standings caused them to slip through the cracks, as they’ve been very impressive during the early parts of the season.

Week 4 Fantasy Hockey Waiver Wire


RW Troy Terry, ANA (58% rostered): Terry is on an incredible run right now. He’s on a nine-game point streak where he’s racked up seven goals and five assists. His career-high is 20 points, which he achieved in 48 contests last year. Considering he’s already more than half way there, this is shaping out to be a breakout season for the 24-year-old. Terry is playing on Anaheim’s top line and top power-play unit, being an offensive driver for the team. There’s no way he should be left on the waiver wire.

C/LW J.T. Compher, COL (50%): Compher has four goals and four assists through eight games. He’s tied for second in points among Avalanche players, however, that is partly due to their top line all missing two games thus far. All of Compher’s points have been scored in pairs, so while he isn’t consistent, he scores in bunches. He’s averaging 19:35 of ice time per game, which is more than five additional minutes from last year’s total. He’s also getting nearly four minutes a night on the power play, where he’s scored three of his points. Compher also has a short-handed point, along with seven hits and six blocks. He’s getting it done at both ends of the ice. Colorado lost some depth in the offseason, so it appears that the club will be relying on Compher more as a result.

LW Alex Iafallo, LAK (43%): Iafallo is riding a three-game point streak, consisting of three goals and a pair of assists. With eight points in nine games on the campaign, he’s easily on track to have a career year, as his previous career-high is 43 points. Will he continue scoring at his current pace? No, but he could push for 50 or more points. After Anze Kopitar’s 13 points, Iafallo has been the next biggest offensive threat for the Kings. He’s taking over three shots per game on average, and averaging a hit per game too.

C/LW Adam Henrique, ANA (41%): The second Duck on the list. Normally the Ducks have trouble scoring, but this year’s squad is showing they have more to give — at least for now. Henrique is also playing on Anaheim’s top line but on the second power-play unit. He has four goals and five assists through 11 games, including three points generated from the man advantage. With 28 shots on goal, six hits, and 11 blocks, he’ll chip in for a few peripheral categories.


D Kale Clague, LAK (18%): With Drew Doughty sidelined for about eight weeks, and Sean Walker done for the season, there are some holes on the Kings’ defense. Clague, a 2016 second-round selection, has jumped right in. He played approximately 19 minutes in each of his two appearances thus far, including 10 minutes of power-play time across both contests. He’s on the top power-play unit, and scored a pair of power-play assists. Keep an eye on Clague to see if this deployment continues. He’s worth claiming from the waiver wire in deeper leagues, but very well could see his rostered percentage skyrocket if he maintains this success.

D Oliver Kylington, CGY (11%): Kylington is on a four-game point streak that’s seen him collect a goal and four assists. He had just one point in eight games last year, and he’s never surpassed eight points in a season. At five points already, he’s bound to top that with ease. The 24-year-old is averaging 15:39 of ice time. He’s being given more responsibility, as he previously averaged 13:05 per game. In an expanded role, Kylington’s fantasy value will rise, although he’s likely only a target in deeper leagues.


G James Reimer, SJS (32%): Reimer and Adin Hill are the tandem in San Jose, where each goaltender could end up starting half the games this year. At least, that’s what it appeared to be early on. Reimer has been impressive and may be able to steal some starts away from Hill. Reimer has a 3-1-0 record, with a 1.54 GAA and .950 save percentage. He’s third in the league in each respective category. The Sharks weren’t expected to be competitive by many pundits, but Reimer is proving the doubters wrong and offers excellent fantasy value.
