Week 9 Fantasy Hockey Stock Watch


Mike Fisher, C, OTT – He’s never been a major fantasy producer, but Fisher is certainly capable of scoring in bunches, and he’s on a tear right now, with 6 points in his last 3. Rumblings of his inclusion on Canada’s Olympic team should provide plenty of motivation for him to continue to produce.

Michael Frolik, RW, FLA – Early on it looked as if Frolik may have been hit with the infamous sophomore slump after a fine rookie season. He has 4 points in his last 4 though, and could provide you with some cheap offensive help.

Sheldon Souray, D, EDM – I had him listed in the hold group the last time around, preaching patience as he returned from injury. He’s looked good, putting up 3 points in 3 games, and the Oilers powerplay seems to be back on track. See if you can snatch him before his value shoots back up.

Dwayne Roloson, G, NYI – Roloson has played very well for the upstart Isles this season. He’s won 5 times in his last 8 starts, and the Isles have earned points in 7 of those 8. He is still splitting time with Martin Biron, but Biron isn’t winning as much, and Roloson’s 58 save effort the other night doesn’t do Biron any favours. Roloson might even be available on your waiver wire.

Vincent Lecavalier, C, TB – Lecavalier’s game has started to round into form, and this could be your last chance to trade for him before his value goes sky-high. He’s a fantasy stud, and is once again starting to play like one.


Mike Cammalleri, RW, MTL – I still can’t quite figure out what kind of season he is going to have. He has mixed hot and cold streaks, following a stretch with 2 points in 6 games, with 4 in his last two. He’s still on pace for a goal total in the high 30’s, which fits with last year’s totals, and the Habs seem to be playing better now that Price has found his game. Wait and see on this one.

David Krejci, C, BOS – If you have Krejci, he probably isn’t tradeable seeing as his season totals are horrid. He has 4 points in his last 4 games though, and let’s not forget that he was recovering from hip surgery at the start of the season. With Marc Savard returning, and Patrice Bergeron playing well, it will be interesting to see just how Krejci fits into the Bruins plans.


Scott Gomez, C, MTL – Gomez has been supplanted as the Habs’ number one center by Tomas Plekanec, who is on pace for the best season of his career. Add to that the fact that Gomez is currently out with a lower body injury. If you were banking on Gomez to produce for you at center, you really need to start looking for other options.

Vaclav Prospal, LW/C, NYR – Prospal has always been a bit of an enigma, following good seasons with bad ones. I just don’t think he can possibly maintain this 85 point pace over the rest of the season. His trade value probably won’t ever be as high as it is now, and if you have him, odds are you didn’t draft him high. See if you can deal him to address another need.

Ryan Malone, LW, TB – Malone is a consistent 25 goal a year guy. This year’s 54 goal pace is an aberration, not a breakout. As Vincent Lecavalier, and the Lightning’s other bona fide stars continue to heat up, Malone will come back down to earth, and all will be as it should in Tampa Bay.
