The Wire Troll: Jason Zucker Lighting the Lamp for Minny

It’s been another great week of Fantasy hockey with surprise sleepers and studs lurking around every corner. Here at RotoRob.com, we’ve adjusted our teams accordingly and suggest you do, too.

Week Seven offered some interesting developments in Fantasy hockey. For probably the first time this season, all the major contributors for the week were established veteranss in both the real and Fantasy sense. However, we’ve found a few we think you might be interested in.

Tom Wilson, RW, Washington Capitals (ESPN: 1 per cent; CBS: 14 per cent): After a brief two-game stint with the AHL’s Hershey Bears, Wilson is back with the Caps and had a very solid week, scoring a goal and two points with a plus-1 rating, 27 penalty minutes, seven shots on goal, six hits and one block. In 13 games this season, he has two goals, five points, a minus-3 rating and 24 shots on goal. He’s not going to be a major source of points, but he’ll be a big contributor in leagues in which penalty minutes (see video below) and hits are regular stat categories.

Blake Comeau, LW, Pittsburgh Penguins (ESPN: 16.5 per cent; CBS: 40 per cent): In his first season with the Pens, Comeau is on nearly on track for a career-best 30-goal season. In Week Seven, he had three goals, four points, a plus-1 rating, four penalty minutes, one game-winning goal, 15 shots on goal, 13 hits and a blocked shot. Through 22 games, Comeau has eight goals, 14 points, a plus-5 rating and 42 shots on goal.

Brandon Prust, LW, Montreal Canadiens (ESPN: 0.9 per cent; CBS: 11 per cent): Prust has just one goal and six points in 25 games this season, but his 62 penalty minutes and 30 hits do have him ranked 203rd according to Yahoo.

Jason Zucker, LW, Minnesota Wild (ESPN: 4.5 per cent; CBS: 15 per cent): After years of seeing time both with Minnesota and its minor league affiliate, it certainly looks like Zucker is in St. Paul to stay. In four games last week, he posted three goals, four points, an even plus-minus rating, two penalty minutes, 14 shots on goal, three hits and a blocked shot. With nine goals and 12 points in 23 games played, Zucker is currently on pace for 30 goals or more… and that’s behind teammate Nino Niederreiter, who could hit 40 or more if he keeps up his current pace.

Alex Tanguay, LW/RW, Colorado Avalanche (ESPN: 24.6 per cent; CBS: 33 per cent): Often injured, the now healthy Tanguay should be on your radar. He had a pretty solid Week Seven, scoring a goal and four points with two power play points, a game-winning goal, eight shots on goal and a block. In 22 games played this season, Tanguay has eight goals, 15 points, a plus-1 rating and 36 shots on goal.

STUDS AND DUDS

“Studs and Duds” is our weekly segment about who was hot and who was not in Fantasy hockey in the previous week.

Studs

No. 1. Ryan Miller, G, Vancouver Canucks: Miller appears to be finding his game with the ‘Nucks. In three starts last week, the former Olympian collected three wins, a 0.33 goals against average, a .987 save percentage and two shutouts. Not bad by a long stretch, and that’s why he’s our No. 1 Stud of the Week.

No. 2. Karri Ramo, G, Calgary Flames: The Flames have had a very surprising start to the season, and that should continue if their goalies continue to perform well. Ramo pitched a perfect two games last week, stopping all 58 shots faced for a 1.000 save percentage and two shutouts.

No. 3. Sidney Crosby, C, Pittsburgh Penguins: Sid the Kid had a great week as well, notching a goal, seven points, a plus-2 rating, 14 penalty minutes, two power play points, 11 shots on goal, 54 face-offs won, three hits and a blocked shot. We’re happy he’s on our Fantasy team; we just wish it was in a league with more statistical categories so a week like he had would have made more of an impact.

Duds

As you can already tell, this week’s “S&D” segment is a goalie filled issue, and our “Duds” segment is no different.

No. 1. Darcy Kuemper, G, Minnesota Wild: Like his team, Kuemper has had some issues after a solid showing out of the gate to start the 2014-15 season. Last week, the hulking netminder managed just one win to go with a 5.86 goals against average and a .855 save percentage. Regardless, he’s still Yahoo’s 83rd best Fantasy player of the season with 10 wins, a 2.37 goals against average, a .911 save percentage and three shutouts.

No. 2. Dustin Tokarski, G, Montreal Canadiens: Montreal’s backup didn’t fare much better with no wins, a 3.85 goals against average and a .867 save percentage in two appearances last week.

No. 3. Frederik Andersen, G, Anaheim Ducks: Andersen’s numbers are little better (3.21 goals against average, .906 save percentage), but he does have two wins to his credit on the week.

And that wraps up our coverage of Week Seven; we know how we did, but how did you fare? Tell us in the comments section below.

The Wire Troll: Rise of the Young Guns

November 23, 2014 | by Dakota Case | Comments Comments Off
fter a slow start to the season, Bjugstad is establishing himself as one of the league’s hottest young goal scorers. In Week Six, the former University of Minnesota Golden Gopher standout put on a scoring clinic with five goals, eight points, a plus-6 rating, two power play points, a game-winning goal, 14 shots on goal, 34 face-offs won, five hits and five blocks. In 18 games, Bjugstad has seven goals, 11 points, 53 shots on goal and a plus-4 rating. If he’s on your waiver wire, seriously consider picking him up.

The Wire Troll: Studly Habs and Surprising Sabres Edition

November 16, 2014 | by Dakota Case | Comments Comments Off
Ennis has just been put on waivers in our league, and we’re not sure why. He had a spectacular Week Five, scoring two goals and five points with a plus-3 rating, five penalty minutes, two power play points, 10 shots on goal, a hit and two blocked shots. In 19 games played, the youngster has six goals, 12 points, a minus-8 rating and 40 shots on goal.

The Wire Troll: Young ‘Canes Rising Edition

November 9, 2014 | by Dakota Case | Comments Comments Off
Rask is a rookie, and he’s young, but his two goals, four points, plus-3 rating, two penalty minutes, two power play points, 15 shots on goal and 23 face-offs won made him last week’s 11th best Fantasy player. If you do decide to pick him up, don’t expect numbers like this every week, but it’s an encouraging effort by a talented player within a struggling organization. Keep your eye on Rask, but we don’t suggest you pick him up quite yet.

The Wire Troll: James Reimer Poised to Steal Starts

November 2, 2014 | by Dakota Case | Comments Comments Off
Fantasy GMs would be smart to jump on this guy, especially in competitive leagues with lots of teams. In 11 games with the Leafs this season, Winnik has a goal, seven points, a plus-7 rating and 16 shots. He’s playing on the top line and the Leafs have started to string some wins together, so he’ll have plenty of opportunity to produce for the time being.
