  • Kaapo Kakko is week-to-week for the New York Rangers; his struggles early in his career continue. 

  • Vitek Vanecek started for the Capitals again on Monday night. Vanecek has now started 9 of the last 11 games for the Capitals; and he appears to be wrestling away the starting job from Ilya Samsonov. 
  • Cam Talbot made his return to the Minnesota Wild on Monday. 
  • Chris Kreider (5 G, 2A in 3 GP), Ville Husso (3-0-0, 1.34 GAA, .960 SV%, 1 SO), and Timo Meier (6 G in 3 GP) were named the NHL’s 3 Stars for the week ending January 23rd.

January 25 
  • Canada’s Men’s Olympic roster was announced on Tuesday. 

  • The Philadelphia Flyers are adding John Torchetti to their coaching staff.

  • Mackenzie Blackwood was placed on IR on Tuesday with a heel injury.

Dirty play by Aaron Dell (has a hearing with the league) Batherson is expected to be out long-term. UPDATE: Dell did receive a 3-game suspension for the hit. Tyler Ennis scored a hat trick for the Ottawa Senators, who blanked the Buffalo Sabres by a score of 5-0.

  • Philadelphia FLyers GM Chuck Fletcher said that it would be Captain Claude Giroux’s decision as to whether or not he is moved to a contender this season. According to David Pagnotta, Giroux will discuss options with his agent, Pat Brisson, during the All-Star break.

  • Brendan Gallagher and Paul Byron may be available for the weekend, according to head coach Dom Ducharme.

Timetable on his return should be clear by the weekend.

Ask The Hacks

  • My goalies currently are Jordan Binnington, Cam Talbot, and Tuukka Rask; have Binnington and Talbot lost their starting jobs for the remainder of the season? 
  • Alex Tuch or Clayton Keller? Weekly lock, H2H categories, includes hits. 
  • ESPN H2H standard league. Currently first place at 11-2. My goalies are  Ilya Sorokin, Darcy Kuemper,  Sergei Bobrovsky, and Tuukka Rask. Semyon Varlamov and Ville Husso are available on waivers – should I drop anyone, and who should I pick up?
  • I have Jordan Binnington and Carter Hart in a couple of leagues – Is it time to sell on these guys?
  • David Pastrnak for Chris Kreider and Ryan Hartman? I think it’s lopsided towards Kreider and Hartman, but Zuccarello is still available in the FA. I think if I can get Pastrnak and pick up Zuccarello, I’ll be better off. Thoughts?
  • Would you trade Darcy Kuemper for Jason Robertson? 
  • Need some goalie help, I drafted goalies late (didn’t realize I needed 3). I have Demko, Gibson & Kahkonen. Anaheim only plays 2 times for the upcoming week, and Talbot is back as a starter. My league has 3 goalie appearances. G,W,SV,SHO. Do I drop Kahkonen? Will Kahkonen get starts with Talbot back? There are no true starters in my league left – only Tuukka Rask, Mike Smith, OTT & ARI goalies available. Backups – Pavel Francouz, Jeremy Swayman, Petr Mrazek, Jonas Korpisalo, Alexandre Georgiev. Any suggestions? Keep Kahkonen or drop for goalie more starts?

Edge Work | NHL Schedule, Week 16

With the NHL All-Star weekend coming up on February 4th, there are no regular season games taking place from Thursday to Sunday. As a result, the upcoming week (January 31 – February 6) will be extended into next week (February 7-13). We’ll cover off the second part of week 17 on episode 46, which will be available on Monday, February 7th. For the upcoming week there are a grand total of 20 games on the schedule. Chicago, Detroit, and Edmonton play both of their games on light days (Monday/Wednesday), and offer some added fantasy appeal for the upcoming week. Boston (-41), Calgary (-25), Colorado (-53), Los Angeles (-14), Minnesota (-21), Nashville (-14), New York Islanders (-31), Toronto (-27), Vegas (-33), Winnipeg (-33) have favourable schedules based on Left Wing Lock’s strength of schedule tool. 

  • Monday – 5 Game
  • Tuesday – 11 Games
  • Wednesday – 4 Games
  • Thursday – 0 Games
  • Friday – 0 Games
  • Saturday – 0 Games
  • Sunday – 0 Game
Teams With 2 Games: 
Team Of Interest | Calgary Flames (Strength of Schedule: -25) 
  • Since January 1st, Calgary is a disappointing 4-6-0, 26th in points percentage league-wide. However, there are quite a few quality Flames available on the waiver wire; and Calgary is one of a few teams that will play twice next week with road matchups against Dallas and Arizona. The Stars have given up the 10th most GF/GP (3.42) in January, and Arizona the 8th most (3.50 GA/GP). Calgary’s -25 Strength of Schedule rating from Left Wing Lock is the 9th most-favourable for the upcoming week; and the Flames have the 3rd best possession metrics in January with an unblocked shot attempt percentage (USAT%) of 55.5. Players To Consider: Andrew Magiapane (50%), Mikael Backlund (12%), Blake Coleman (29%), Sean Monahan (23%), Dillon Dube (1%), Noah Hanifin (6%), Rasmus Andersson (36%), Daniel Vladar (9%)
Team Of Interest | Toronto Maple Leafs (Strength of Schedule: -27) 
  • The Toronto Maple Leafs have a points percentage of .750 (7-2-1) in the month of January, good enough for 7th in the league; and they have the 5th best possession metrics with an unblocked shot attempt percentage (USAT%) of 54.7%. The Leafs are another team that plays twice next week – a home-and-home against the New Jersey Devils. The Devils in January are 30th in points percentage at .273 (3-8-0); and are currently allowing the 11th most goals against per game (GA/GP) at 3.36. Players To Consider: Michael Bunting (16%), Ondrej Kase (7%), Ilya Mikheyev (11%), Alex Kerfoot (16%), T.J. Brodie (2%), Petr Mrazek (50%)
Teams With 1 Game: 
Team Of Interest | Minnesota Wild (Strength of Schedule: -21) 
  • Since January 1st the Minnesota Wild have the 2nd best points percentage .833 (7-1-1 record) and 2nd highest goals for per game (4.33) in the entire National Hockey League. Conversely, Chicago has the 6th worst goals against per game since January 1st at 3.57; and they just lost Jonathan Toews this week due to concussion. The Wild have owned the Blackhawks so far this season, taking a 5-1 win on January 21st and a 4-3 win on January 22nd. Foligno, Zuccarello, Fiala, Greenway, Spurgeon, and Goligoski all contributed offensively in those first 2 contests of the season series. Players To Consider: Marcus Foligno (63%), Mats Zuccarello (67%), Kevin Fiala (73%), Jordan Greenway (5%), Jared Spurgeon (60%), Alex Goligoski (33%)
Team Of Interest | Vegas Golden Knights (Strength of Schedule: -33) 
  • The Golden Knights take on the Buffalo Sabres next week in what should be a very lopsided affair. Since January 1st, Buffalo has allowed the 7th most goals against per game (3.50 GA/GP, 3-5-2); and with the exception of Jack Eichel, the Vegas roster is healthy. Vegas also has the second-best possession numbers in the league since January 1st (57.1 USAT%). Players To Consider: Reilly Smith (45%), William Karlsson (25%), Evgenii Dadonov (13%), Nicolas Roy (9%), Zach Whitecloud (8%), Laurent Brossoit (6%)
Team Of Interest | Winnipeg Jets (Strength of Schedule: -33) 
  • The Winnipeg Jets have struggled mightily since the calendar flipped to 2022 (3-5-2); however, I like their upcoming matchup with the Philadelphia Flyers, who have been a league-worst 1-10-2 since January 1st; while also giving up nearly 4 goals against per game and rolling out a penalty kill that is 31st in the league at 63.6%. To date, the Jets have been a much better possession team as well, so this is a matchup I would be looking at closely for streamers or DFS plays. Players To Consider: Cole Perfetti (2%), Paul Stastny (6%), Brendan Dillon (9%), Nate Schmidt (21%)

Edge Work | NHL Week 16 Waiver Wire Targets

Waiver wire targets will be focused on players with ownership ~50% or less. 

Top Waiver Wire Targets

📈 Tim Stutzle (C/LW), OTT | Rostered: 34% (Yahoo) | GP: 2 (Vs.EDM, @NYI) | Line: 2 (w/ Formenton & Sanford, PP1) 
  • The German forward is pointless in his last two outings; however, he had posted 6 points (2 goals) in 8 games prior to that. Stutzle is skating nearly 18 minutes per game on the season, and actually played over 24 minutes in his last 2 games against Anaheim and Carolina. Additionally, Stutzle is entrenched on PP1 at 63% PP share. Based on his iSH% (8.4%), tEVSH% (7.3%), and IPP (58.8%), I would suspect that we see improved production from Tim Stutzle the rest of the season. 
📈 Matthew Boldy (C/LW), MIN | Rostered: 6% (Yahoo) | GP: 1 (@CHI) | Line: 3 (w/ Fiala & Gaudreau, PP1) 
  • Matthew Boldy is on a 72 point-pace for the Minnesota Wild, albeit in just 8 games. However, the Wild rookie has found real chemistry alongside Kevin Fiala (74%), who has 13 points (8 goals) in his last 10 games. Boldly is playing nearly 17 minutes TOI, 2:34 on the man advantage (PP1), and should absolutely be on your radar for redraft, keeper, and dynasty leagues. 
📈 Alex Iafallo (C), LAK | Rostered: 31% (Yahoo) | GP: 1 (@DET) | Line: 1 (w/ Kopitar & Kempe, PP1) 
  • Alex Iafallo is on-pace for a career best 51 points and 25 goals playing alongside Adrian Kempe (44%) and Anze Kopitar. Iafallo has posted 7 points (4 goals) in his last 10 games played, and continues to be a great streaming option, particularly in deeper leagues. Also of note, the Kings winger is shooting a career-high 2.9 SOG/GM; and his tEVSH% (7.5%) and IPP (65.9%) suggest we could see more from the 28 year-old. 
📈 Dylan Strome (C/RW), CHI | Rostered: 9% (Yahoo) | GP: 2 (Vs.VAN, Vs.MIN) | Line: 1 (w/ Hagel & Kane, PP2) 
  • Dylan Strome scored his first career NHL hat trick against the Detroit Red Wings earlier this week; and has really hit his stride late in the season with 11 points (5 goals) in his last 9 games played. No red flags in terms of Strome’s underlying metrics; and his tEVSH% (6%) would suggest that we see some positive regression. Strome’s linemates have been hot as well: Brandon Hagel (2%) has 8 points (5 goals) in 8 games; and Patrick Kane has posted 11 points (4 goals) in 10 games.  
📈 Valeri Nichushkin (LW/RW), COL | Rostered: 30% (Yahoo) | GP: 1 (@ARI) | Line: 2 (w/ Landeskog & Rantanen, PP2) 
  • With Nathan MacKinnon out due to a broken nose sustained earlier in the week versus the Boston Bruins; Valeri Nichushkin finds himself on Colorado’s top line alongside Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen. The former Dallas Star has been outstanding this year for the Avs, scoring 21 points (11 goals) in 26 games to date this season. Nichushkin’s iSH% (16.2%) is high relative to his 3-year average; and his tEVSH% is a touch high at 10.9%. It would be reasonable to expect a bit of regression at some point, but given Nichushkin’s current lineup placement I would not be concerned.  
📈 Mason Marchment (LW), FLA | Rostered: 2% (Yahoo) | GP: 2 (Vs.CBJ, Vs.NYR) | Line: 3 (w/ Lundell & Reinhart) 
  • Mason Marchment is on a 3-Game point streak, posting 6 points (4 goals), playing 3LW with Anton Lundell and Sam Reinhart. To date this season, Marchment has posted 17 points (6 goals) in 20 games played. Note: Marchment is only playing 13:05 per game, playing very little on the PP (4.4% PP share), and his iSH% (15.8%) this season is well above his career average of 8.8% (57 games played). Regardless, the Panthers play twice next week, so Marchment should make for an excellent streamer, especially in deep leagues that count hits (~2.5 hits/game).  
📈 Rasmus Andersson (D), CGY | Rostered: 37% (Yahoo) | GP: 2 (@DAL, @ARI) | Pair: 1 (w/ Hanifin) 
  • Points in 4 his last 6 games, and 17 SOG over that stretch, including 7 against the Columbus Blue Jackets this past Wednesday. Average TOI of 22 minutes per game in January; and quarterbacks the first power play unit in Calgary. Available in nearly 65% of leagues. 
📈 Damon Severson (D), NJD | Rostered: 22% (Yahoo) | GP: 2 (@TOR, Vs.TOR) | Pair: 1 (w/ Siegenthaler) 
  • Damon Severson continues to impress with Dougie Hamilton out with injury. As of Saturday morning, 12 points (3 goals) in his last 10 games played; 26:27 ATOI, 67% PP share, and shooting a career-best 2.3 SOG/GM. Hamilton is slowly working his way back from a broken jaw, but Severson should have some staying power for the remainder of the season. 
📈 Brendan Dillon (D), WPG | Rostered: 9% (Yahoo) | GP: 1 (@PHI) | Pair: 1 (w/ Schmidt) 
  • Not typically an offensive defenceman; however, Brendan Dillon has 7 points (1 goal) in his last 10 games played. Dillon is playing on the top line alongside Nat Schmidt, and provides exposure to valuable forwards Mark Scheifele, Blake Wheeler, and Andrew Copp. On-pace for just 24 points, Dillon is a deep-league streamer that contributes to hits, blocks, PIMS, and SOG. 
📈 Matt Murray (G), OTT | Rostered: 10% (Yahoo) | GP: 2 (Vs.EDM, @NYI) | Role: Tandem (32% Net Share)
  • After Thursday night’s 3-2 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes; Matt Murray is now 3-0-2 in his last 5 starts with a 1.97 GAA, .937 SV%, and 4.15 GSAA! The Senators are one of a few teams that play 2 games for next week, although they are in a back-to-back so Murray likely gets just 1 start. Since January 1st, the Senators have a record of 4-3-2 (.556 Pts %, 15th in the league). 
📈 Mikko Koskinen (G), EDM | Rostered: 43% (Yahoo) | GP: 2 (@OTT, @WSH) | Role: Starter (62% Net Share)
  • Mikko Koskinen was solid again for the Oilers on Thursday night against Nashville. The big Finn made some key saves for the Oilers, and robbed Duchene in the shootout. Koskinen’s last 3 games played have been impressive – 3-0-0, 2.22 GAA, .933 SV%, 2.25 GSAA. The problem with Koskinen has been consistency. Fantasy managers just aren’t sure game to game which goaltender they are going to get. However, Edmonton is nearing a fully healthy roster; and the acquisition of Evander Kane should help improve on-ice results. 
📈 Spencer Knight (G), FLA | Rostered: 41% (Yahoo) | GP: 2 (Vs.CBJ, Vs.NYR) | Role: Backup (% Net Share)
  • In his last 2 starts, Spencer Knight has posted numbers similar to what we saw from him late last season – 2-0-0, 0.96 GAA, .962 SV%, 2.71 GSAA. With Florida playing just two games on a back-to-back, Knight should get a start against either Columbus or New York.
