Fantasy Hockey Week 4 Goalie Grabs (2022)

Fantasy hockey is well underway, so it is time to look at our Week 4 goalie grabs to help you conquer your opponent this week.

Sometimes, I’m proud of my recommendations in this space, which work well, and everyone goes home happy.

Sometimes, I recommend MacKenzie Blackwood, who starts one game, gives up five goals and sits out the rest of the week with an upper-body injury. That’s not the ideal streaming option, and I own my mistakes.

I’m tempted to recommend Eric Comrie again as a Week 4 goalie grab, as he appears to have won the starting job. Still, I try to diversify from week to week (though some consistently low-rostered options may find themselves here multiple times). He had a couple of hard-luck losses last week, but he remains an intriguing option, particularly in deeper leagues.

Adin Hill didn’t let me down. As I write this, he has saved 29 of 31 shots against the Sharks to grab the win and is currently stifling the Jets. Both Vegas goaltenders should be rostered everywhere.

What I am here to do is recommend a couple of Week 3 goalie grabs. The criteria are to aim for netminders who are around 50% rostered percentage, have good matchups, and have good volume to fill your stat sheet in categories or points leagues. I’ll also throw in my confidence level regarding the grab.

Week 4 Goalie Grabs

Ville Husso (DET): @BUF, WAS, NYI, @NYR

Fantrax: 82% | Yahoo: 72%

Yes, I know, this is higher than 50%, but I recommended Husso for Week 2, and his rostered numbers have actually gone down since then. Sure, he had one Really Bad Start (RBS) last week, wherein he gave up five goals in a loss to Boston. That is also his only loss on the season. He has a .926 save percentage and a 2.40 GAA on the year. He has appealing matchups with two teams who love to shoot (Islanders and Rangers) and two very beatable teams (Buffalo and Washington). I like Husso as my top Week 4 goalie grab.

Craig Anderson (BUF): DET, PIT, @CAR, @TB

Fantrax: 32% | Yahoo: 17%

This 41-year-old netminder is the ultimate streaming option if the Sabres continue to deploy him sparingly and in situations that should garner success. He is 3-0 through three starts, allowing only five goals across all of those contests. With four games in the next seven days, he should see at least one start, at which point I would have no problem streaming him against any of these four opponents. He won’t maintain a .946 save percentage all season, but he should be as well-rested as a middle-aged man can be and is worth a Week 4 goalie grab.

Stuart Skinner (EDM): NSH, NJ, DAL

Fantrax: 49% | Yahoo: 25%

This is where I disclose that I am an Edmonton fan, and while that may diminish your opinion of me, I assure you that it also means I recognize terrible goal-tending pretty well. Jack Campbell, the Oilers’ primary netminder, is not terrible by any stretch, even though he got off to a very rocky start to the season. I don’t recommend Skinner as the guy that I think will suddenly “rise up” and win the starting job; Campbell’s five-year contract has ensured that will not be the case.

I recommend Skinner as a streamer because he has a career save percentage of .920 and GAA of 2.59, and his two wins this year have seen him take down St. Louis and Calgary, saving 77 of 80 shots in the two games. I cannot stress enough that Edmonton will feed every shots-on-goal prop bet against them you can get your hands on, meaning both goalies will raise your counting stats. Stuart Skinner just happens to be the one available.

I’m around all season to discuss all the fantasy hockey happenings and start/sit questions, and I try to post some DFS line suggestions daily on Twitter at @thewonkypenguin. There is money and glory to be had in fantasy hockey, my friends. Let’s have a great year in both. And, as always, good luck!
