Every fantasy hockey manager could use some extra points on their roster, so make sure you check out which names made the list in this week’s edition of Fantasy Corner, forward streaming options to help give your team an offensive boost.
Anders Lee – New York Islanders – 37% Rostered
The Islanders don’t have much to cheer for this season, but it’s a positive sign to see their captain getting back to his goal-scoring ways. Lee got off to a slow start after working his way back from an ACL injury he suffered at the end of last season. He only has 28 points on the year in 50 games played, which is disappointing for fantasy managers who drafted him this season, but his performance of late provides a reason for optimism.
Fortunately for those who may have been forced to drop him, he is likely still available in your league to pick up. He is red hot right now with goals in four straight games and eight points over the same span while being named the NHL’s third star of the week. The Islanders play three times this week, and he should be added everywhere as long as he’s putting the puck in the net at this rate.
Tim Stuetzle – Ottawa Senators – 43% Rostered
The Ottawa Senators’ third overall selection in the 2020 draft is enjoying a fine sophomore season and already surpassed his goal, assist, and point totals from last season. He is currently the team’s second-line center and possesses both the speed and skill to be a game-breaker offensively. He is up to seven points over his last five games while averaging over two shots on goal per game.
The Senators play four games this week, all of which are against teams who are outside of a playoff spot. Two of their opponents, in the Columbus Blue Jackets and Montreal Canadiens, sit second last and last in goals against in the entire league. The matchups and schedule are more than favorable for an offensive player of Stuetzle’s caliber.
Dylan Strome – Chicago Blackhawks – 21% Rostered
It’s not often that a player centering a top line is available in so many leagues, and at only 21% rostered he should be picked up everywhere immediately. Strome looks to have finally found a home and it’s on the Chicago Blackhawks’ top line, centering two of the league’s most dynamic offensive weapons in Alex Debrincat and Patrick Kane.
If playing alongside those two players isn’t enough to convince you to pick him up at all costs, he has ten points including seven goals in his previous five games. The rebuilding Blackhawks have no reason not to give Strome a tonne of ice time moving forward, considering they want to decipher which players will be part of the team’s core moving forward. As long as he is slotted on that top line and top powerplay unit he possesses league-winning upside.
