Fantasy Hockey Friday

The Hot List provides a small sampling of players putting up big numbers over the last week who are flying under the radar in Fantasy Hockey leagues and could be worth a look if you need an extra boost in your stat categories.

The Hot List:

Mike Fisher (forward): Over the past two weeks, Mike Fisher posted six goals, including three game winners, and one assist. January was a solid month for Fisher who posted seven goals and eight assists in 13 games while Nashville won an incredible 11 out of a possible 13 games in January.  Keep an eye on Fisher to see if he keeps up this pace in the second half.

Mikhail Grabovski (forward): Owned in 64 percent of Yahoo Fantasy Hockey Leagues, Grabovski posted four goals and six assists and was a plus-five over the past two weeks with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Grabovksi now has 36 points in 45 games this season.

Clarke MacArthur (forward): Another Maple Leaf on the list, MacArthur tallied four goals and notched two assists over the last two weeks on only nine shots on goal. However, MacArthur seems to have fallen back to Earth after a 62 point outbreak last season and will likely hit the 50-point plateau at best this year.

Teddy Purcell (forward): Purcell will likely fall short of his career best of 51 points from last season, but he could top the 20 goal mark for the first time in his career. His play has been streaky at best, but he has six points in his last six games and appears to be shooting the puck more with 18 shots on goal over the same time span. When forwards shoot the puck, good things happen.

Matheiu Garon (goalie): Brought in as a backup netminder in the offseason, Garon appears to be slowly stealing the starting role from Dwayne Roloson. With a 2-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets last night, Garon is now the winner of four of his last five starts.
