The Wire Troll: Brandon Dubinsky Tearing it Up in February

Welcome back to another week of Fantasy hockey. Last week, we recommended Jason Pominville and we sure hope you took our advice as all he’s done is log another four helpers in four games since then.

This week, the Penguins have lost Olli Maatta in the wake of hand surgery; the Devils landed Viktor Loov in a trade with the Leafs for Sergey Kalinin; and Antoine Vermette got a 10-game suspension for slashing a linesman.

Without further ado, here are some players we recommend for your Fantasy hockey team…

Brandon Dubinsky, C, Columbus Blue Jackets (ESPN: 47.7 per cent; CBS: 36 per cent): Dubinsky is really coming on strong lately. His roll started at home against the Detroit Red Wings when he picked up two assists. Then, against his former team, the New York Rangers, Dubinsky scored a goal. Against a surging Toronto Maple Leafs team, he picked up a key assist in the victory, and on Friday, he potted the overtime goal against the Pittsburgh Penguins (see video below). In the month of February, Dubinsky has scored three times, and picked up nine points while registering an impressive +9. He’s been averaging about 18-to-19 minutes and three shots this month.

Christian Dvorak, C, Arizona Coyotes (ESPN: 4.3 per cent; CBS: 17 per cent): The former second round pick is currently playing outstanding hockey. In Calgary, Dvorak scored twice as part of a three-point game, going +3 in a shutout victory over the Flames. Then, on Thursday against the Los Angeles Kings, he picked up an assist, and once again was a +3 in another win. In the month of February, Dvorak has scored eight points (five goals, three assists) while going +5. He’s averaging about 16 minutes, but recently his ice time has increased, since he is being used on the power play more often.

Patrik Berglund, C, St. Louis Blues (ESPN: 15.6 per cent; CBS: 10 per cent): February has been a highly productive month for Berglund. In a five-game stretch, he’s scored six goals for the Blues, with the main highlight in this streak being a hat trick, including the game winner, on the road against the Montreal Canadiens. Berglund’s offensive run has caused St. Louis to give him much more ice time, as he’s gone from 14 to 18 minutes a game, and is on the first power play unit.

Brady Skjei, D, New York Rangers (ESPN: 25.3 per cent; CBS: 50 per cent): Skjei has been producing in February, picking up six assists this month, including two-assist games against the Anaheim Ducks and the New York Islanders. He’s averaging between 17 and 20 minutes and in the last four games, he’s averaging about three shots.

Alexander Edler, D, Vancouver Canucks (ESPN: 15.2 per cent; CBS: 15 per cent): This Swede has become a workhorse. Not only he is the top blueliner on the team in terms of ice time (averaging 23-to-26 minutes), but in the past seven games, Edler has picked up six points (two goals, four assists), and two of those points were on the power play. He doesn’t help with his +/- because he is out on the ice so much for a bad team, but being on the top line, he could continue racking up the points for Vancouver, as it tries to make a push for the playoffs.

Now it’s your turn. Let us know in the comments below who your favourite Fantasy hockey waiver wire pick of the week is.

The Wire Troll: Valtteri Filppula Striking For the Lightning

November 20, 2016 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
Ward has been off the charts good this month, especially lately, with a shutout Tuesday and just three goals allowed over his last three games — all wins. He now has a winning record, and should easily shatter last season’s total of 23 wins. There’s a reason Ward has been one of the week’s hottest pickups, but there’s still time to jump on his train if you need netminding assistance.

2015 RotoRob Hockey Awards

February 15, 2016 | by Dakota Case | Comments Comments Off
Hodgson scored just six goals and 13 points in 78 games last season, notching a league 11th-worst minus-28 rating. It was by far his worst season ever. This season, Hodgson was doing slightly better with three goals, eight points and a plus-2 rating in 39 games with a much better team in Nashville. Still, he was only on pace for 14 points in 66 games, so in the middle of January, the Preds waived him. He’s currently toiling in the AHL. Woof. Dud.

The Wire Troll: Tyler Bozak Paces Leafs

December 27, 2015 | by Dakota Case | Comments Comments Off
When we last left Bozak, he was on pace for a career season with three goals, 12 points and a minus-2 rating in 17 games. Now with 29 under his belt, he’s got eight goals, 23 points and a plus-3 rating to go with eight penalty minutes and 49 shots on goal. That’s right — in a full 82-game season, Bozak is on pace for 65 points! Will he get there? No. But he sure is fun to watch right now, and it’s time for Fantasy GMs to jump on board before it’s too late.
