Found October 09, 2013 on Fantasy Sports Locker Room:
PLAYERS: Tomas Hertl
TEAMS: San Jose Sharks
With week one of the NHL in the books Locker Room Fantasy Sports is taking a few guys inside the locker room to evaluate their hot starts. Chances are the following players are not available in your league, but they are great fantasy hockey waiver wire adds. The following owned percentages are in Yahoo! leagues only. We will start with the best of the best. With that said – they are the least likely to be available in your league. Tomas Hertl indeed made the cut, we preview him here… but we saved the best for last.   Mikhail Grabovski, C, Washington Capitals – 64 percent owned. Grabovski is proving to the Leafs and the rest of the NHL that he is worth a contract. He had a fantastic first game with the Capitals picking up a hat trick and an assists. His five points in his first three games are exciting enough to jump on the bandwagon for now, plus he is playing on Washington’s first power play unit with Alex Ovechkin. That’s enough reason for me to want to own him.   Jason Garrison, D, Vancouver Canucks – 64 percent owned. Don’t wait around too long for a mediocre defenseman to score you some points. Garrison shouldn’t be on your waiver wire and if he is you should grab him. He has three goals (one on the power play, one shorthanded and the ot winner last night) and two assists in four games with the Canucks. It seems John Tortorella understands h ow to use him as he is quarterbacking Vancouver’s PP. Much like he did in Florida where nine of his 16 goals came with the extra man.   Lars Eller, C – Montreal Canadiens – 57 percent owned. Eller is centering a really good looking kid line in Montreal. He has three goals and two assists and was named the NHL’s second star of the week. Eller, Brendan Gallagher and Alex Galchenyuk have scored five of the Habs seven goals to start the season. Eller has 19 points in his last 18 games dating back to last season, so his production isn’t based on just a couple games.   Brendan Gallagher, RW, Montreal Canadiens – 42 percent owned. Much like Eller, Gallagher is enjoying a hot start with the Canadiens with a plus two rating to go al ong with three points in two games. We talked earlier about the ‘Kid Line’ and the chemistry they have displayed since being put on a line late last season. Gallagher also brings nastiness to his game which is good news if your league is penalty minutes happy.   David Perron, LW, Edmonton Oilers – 37 percent owned. Perron is as skilled as they come. With Ryan Nugent-Hopkins back in the lineup Perron should see regular time with Nail Yakupov and his stock will go up whenever Sam Gagner returns. Perron has three points in three games and a total of six goals with Edmonton including preseason. Don’t count on a great plus/minus, but the points should come.   Damien Brunner, C, New Jersey Devils – 30 percent owned. Brunner has been impressive with the Devils picking up four points in his first four games. He even grabbed a shorthanded assist so he has the potential to fill up many different categories for your league. Brunner is spending time on the Devils third line, but has seen plenty of power play time.   Mason Raymond, LW, Toronto Maple Leafs – 22 percent owned. Two goals and two assists for Raymond in his first four games with the Leafs. He is making a case for himself to stick around in Toronto and he has seen ice-time with the big boys. He was in on two power play goals with Joffrey Lupul and Nazem Kadri. I don’t expect the production to continue, but he is worth a look.   Marcus Johansson, C, Washington Capitals – 21 percent owned. Four points in three games for Johansson to start the year. Alex Ovechkin is on a mission and Johansson is playing on a line with him and Nicklas Backstrom. That’s enough for me to want him on my fantasy team. I do expect the production to continue playing with those to players. This guy is a must own.   Tomas Hertl, C, San Jose Sharks – 13 percent owned. Locker Room Fantasy Sports was big on Hertl, we had him as a heavy Rookie of the Year candidate. I know, it’s early but this kid is a stud. In case you missed what he did last night… well here you go. His four goals against the Rangers gives him six on the year which is tops in the league. He is playing on a line with Joe Thornton and Brent Burns and I don’t expect his offensive production to slow down. Sure, he won’t score every night in the NHL, but he has at least a point in every Sharks game including preseason. One percent owned before his two goals the other night, fantasy hockey enthusiasts are catching on.     The post Fantasy Hockey Waiver Wire Adds – Tomas Hertl appeared first on Fantasy Sports Locker Room.
