We've got just a
couple weeks of fantasy action to go before falling into the Olympic
slumber. Don't miss your opportunity to
upgrade your roster and prepare your team for the final push before playoff
season creeps up.
While the wire is
typically highlighting lesser known talent, this week there are a number of
fantasy veterans who had falled off in recent years or months. Some of these veterans have turned up the
heat in recent weeks:
Ryan Clowe (NJ)
The PIMs have dried
up a bit, but he's seemed to regain his old scoring touch. 9 points over his last 7 games for the
David Legwand and Mike Fisher (NAS)
The Predators have
come back from the dead offensively in January, and the two centers have been
leading the cause. Over the past 4 games, Legwand has piled up 7 points, along
with a healthy plus-minus and PIM contribution. Fisher has been even better, with 14 points
in 13 games.
Brad Richards (NYR)
Another back from
the dead? 8 points in 7 games has the up
and down veteran back on the upswing.
Scott Hartnell (PHI)
Over the last month,
Hartnell has been producing at over a point-per-game. Teaming up with Schenn and Simmonds, the 2nd
line in Philly has been on fire.
Nazem Kadri (TOR)
Kadri and the Leafs
have awoken in the past week. He has 5
points in his last 3 games.
Brad Marchand (BOS)
Marchand was written
off by many for a horrid start to this season.
His ice time and production have steadily crept back in recent
weeks. He has been scoring goals
consistently, talling 9 in his last 13 games.
He is capable of being a top 20 fantasy option.
Andrej Meszaros (PHI)
It's been a few
years since Meszaros was a significant fantasy factor. With 9 points in the last 7 games, he has my
Darcy Kuemper (MIN)
Trying to predict
the goalie situation in Minnesota is a bit painful right now. Backstrom has fallen out of favor. Harding's health is a mystery. In steps Kuemper to win 4 of 5 starts,
including a shutout. Not a long-term
solution, but you may be able to ride him to the Olympic break.
