As the first week of the Fantasy Hockey matchups are coming to an end, it's time to assess your team and pick up players to make sure you and your team lift the trophy at the end of the year. In this blog, we will look at players in the every position you need to pick up.
As always, if another player has caught your eye and isn't on this list tweet us at DST_Tweets.
Side Note: Obviously every league is different so some of these players might not be free agent in your league.
Peter Budaj (G) - Los Angeles Kings
With Jonathan Quick and now Jeff Zatkoff out on the IR, the Kings have to look at their experienced third string goalie to be their consistent starter. Even though Budaj won't get you many shutouts, the Kings are good enough where he will get you wins when he's in net and would be a perfect second or even third goalie for your team. This season he has two wins in three games played and is the most sought after goalie on the market right now.
Nathan Beaulieu (D) - Montreal Canadians
Nathan Beaulieu has started the season well for the Canadians and seems to be jelling with his new D partner, Shea Weber. He might not be the flashiest player but playing with Shea Weber and playing on the second Power Play line, he will get you fantasy points and will go down as a top bargain this season.
2016/17 Stats: GP: 5, A:2, +/-: 7, PPP: 1
Troy Brouwer (RW) - Calgary Flames
Troy Brouwer has started the season extremely well for the Calgary Flames as he has been one of the shinning stars from a Flames team that has started poorly (29th in the league). Brouwer plays on the second line with Kris Versteeg and Sam Bennett, so he is primed to keep his point scoring up. He also plays on the first Power Play line so he will also get you those coveted Power Play Points. You will regret not picking him up.
2016/17 Stats: GP 6, G:3, A: 1, SHG: 1
Tanner Pearson (LW) - Los Angeles Kings
Tanner Pearson has been flying this season as he is playing with Jeff Carter and Devin Setoguchi. Pearson has four goals in three games and doesn't look like he will cool down anytime soon. Like Brouwer, Pearson is also getting power play time which is obviously crucial. With only 13% owned most people will be able to pick him up without any stress but do it before it's too late.
Mike Fisher (C) - Nashville Predators
Mike Fisher has started his season as the new Captain of the Nashville Predators in amazing fashion as in four games he has three goals and one assist. Fisher is a complete player, he scores, he passes, he wracks up some penalty minutes and even can get the power play and short-handed points. As the Predators start to tick his ownership percentage will shoot up as he is playing with Colin Wilson and Viktor Arvidsson. Even though his plus/minus is bad, I promise you it will go up.
