Fantasy Hockey Week In Review

NHL Three Stars

First Star: Nikita Kucherov, RW, Tampa Bay Lightning

Despite playing just two games, Kucherov showcased produced an elite performance with seven points (two goals, five assists). With Andrei Vasilevskiy’s goaltending support, Kucherov’s contributions are steering the Lightning toward a playoff spot.

Second Star: Connor Bedard, C, Chicago Blackhawks

Bedard’s return from injury solidified his dominance in the Calder race. Scoring two goals and five assists in three games, including three power-play points, Bedard’s performance reaffirms his frontrunner status.

Third Star: Marc-Andre Fleury, G, Minnesota Wild

Fleury’s impressive 2-0-1 record, with a 0.97 goals-against average and .961 save percentage, highlights his valuable goaltending contribution to the Wild. As a key asset in fantasy hockey playoffs, Fleury’s consistency is a boon to managers’ goaltending stats.

More Great Performances

Alexander Ovechkin, LW, Washington Capitals

With Ovechkin nearing the twilight of his career, fantasy managers might find opportunities to acquire him at a discounted rate this summer. Despite a potentially slower season, Ovechkin’s recent performance suggests he remains a potent offensive threat.

Alexander Nylander, LW, Columbus Blue Jackets

Nylander’s increased ice time and impressive goal-scoring streak make him an intriguing sleeper candidate for next season. While he may not reach his brother William Nylander’s scoring heights, Nylander’s recent form hints at his potential to become a valuable fantasy asset.

Martin Fehervary, D, Washington Capitals

Fehervary’s league-leading hits over the past week make him a valuable multi-category playoff addition. With the Capitals’ favorable off-night game schedule, Fehervary’s physical presence and availability offer fantasy managers a strategic advantage.

Ilya Lyubushkin, D, Toronto Maple Leafs

Lyubushkin’s recent hits contribution, albeit limited by illness, underscores his potential as a depth option for fantasy managers in need of defensive support. With the Maple Leafs’ upcoming games, Lyubushkin presents a viable short-term solution.

Petr Mrazek, G, Chicago Blackhawks

Despite past inconsistencies, Mrazek’s recent strong performances make him a matchup-dependent option for fantasy managers. With favorable matchups against the Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks, Mrazek presents a compelling spot-start opportunity.

Dmitri Orlov, D, Carolina Hurricanes

Orlov’s recent offensive surge, including a standout four-point game, warrants fantasy managers’ attention. While his consistency has been lacking, Orlov’s potential power-play role and recent performance make him a player to monitor.

Roman Josi, D, Nashville Predators

Josi’s impressive point streak underscores his pivotal role in the Predators’ playoff push. With consistent offensive production, Josi remains a fantasy hockey cornerstone, contributing significantly to managers’ success.

Mitch Marner, RW, Toronto Maple Leafs

Marner’s absence due to injury raises concerns for fantasy managers, with uncertainty surrounding his return timeline. While the injury doesn’t appear serious, Marner’s availability for upcoming games remains uncertain.

Artemi Panarin, LW, New York Rangers

Panarin’s recent five-point performance brings him close to significant career milestones. With a career-high shot count and increased power-play production, Panarin’s offensive prowess remains a key fantasy asset.

Teavu Terravainen, LW/RW, Carolina Hurricanes

Terravainen’s recent scoring streak, despite a temporary injury setback, highlights his offensive impact. Fantasy managers should remain cautious of inflated shooting percentages and consider Terravainen’s long-term performance.
