Hey guys, happy end of November, Christmas is coming! Sven here back with another Buy/Sell/Hold. I will simply be looking at what these particular players have done performance-wise so far this season, and what I anticipate. Let me know if you guys like this type of content!
ALL STATS ARE AS OF THE MORNING OF NOVEMBER 29, 2018
Dylan Strome – 21GP 4-4-8. Small sample size, but it appears the Hawks are looking to capitalize on Debrincat and Strome’s previous chemistry in Erie (OHL) since acquiring the former third overall pick. Now look for Chiarelli to give up his whole team for the two so they can play with McDaddy again! Doesn’t hurt that Patty Kane is the third man on that line. Strome had a goal and a helper in his first game as a Blackhawk, but keep your eye out for now!
Jesper Bratt – 10GP 2-5-7. With ten games under his belt this season coming off a jaw injury, Bratt has jumped into the #1RW position playing with Hall and Hischier. Five points in his last six and TOI on the rise? Looks like a streamer target to me!
Nick Foligno – 23GP 6-9-15. This Columbus second line has been very impressive as of late, and with Josh Anderson filling the net someone HAS to be passing him the puck. Welcome to streaming territory, Nick!
Shea Weber – 1GP 0-1-1. Fresh off the shelf and immediately vaulted to top-two #1PP, Captain Weber is back for the Habs. Grab him while you can!
Nikolay Goldobin – 27GP 4-12-16. Playing with Boeser and Pettersson will bode well for Goldobin as he finds his stride in his first full NHL season. With his ATOI up to 17 minutes as of late, he should be looked at as a streaming target!
Jason Zucker – 24GP 7-9-16. I may just be frustrated because I dropped Zucker right before his second-half explosion last year, AND he isn’t impressing me to start this year. The problem with Minny players is they appear to roll their lines – Charlie Coyle is logging about the same TOI despite being on the third line, compared to Zucker’s #1LW slot. Also in watching a couple games, I love Zucker as a player but he just doesn’t seem to be in a lot of quality scoring opportunities. I have dropped him in one league.
Ryan Dzingel – 23GP 10-7-17. Boy that little run for Dzingel was sure fun! Look for him to catch fire again, but this Sens team is not much to write home about for the time being.
Jeff Petry – 25GP 2-15-17. Weber back in the lineup means Petry can finally take a breath, as he has been logging some hefty minutes on Montreal’s back-end. Though he will still receive some PP#2 time, his fantasy value has diminished quite a bit.
Jakub Voracek – 24GP 6-12-18. Though last season certainly was above-average for Voracek, he did snap his five-game scoring drought the other night against the Sens. This whole Flyers team will turn it around soon, and I am sure Voracek will find his game.
Jeff Carter – 24GP 4-8-12. Much like Voracek, I am sure Carter will pick it up soon. He does have just three assists in his last 11 games, they all came on the power play. The 33-year-old still has some good years left in him!
