If you have an extra second or two leave us a comment to let us know what you think and if you were helped.
Now on with the show!
Mike Cammalleri – New Jersey Devils
ESPN Owned Percentage: 52.1%
After missing six games in a row, Cammalleri came back with a bang scoring an unbelievable eight points in three games. The 34-year-old is leading the Devils with seven goals this season but let’s keep in mind that Taylor Hall has been out, however. Going with that, if Cammalleri can be half as good as he is right now when Hall returns he could be a must-start every week. The Devils forward is a big factor on the powerplay having racked up four points so far this season.
Jake Guentzel – Pittsburgh Penguins
ESPN Owned Percentage: 5.7%
Just like we all predicted, Guentzel has come into the league and become a point per player. We all thought that right? The young Penguin has got four points in as many games, this shouldn’t be too surprising considering he’s playing on a like with Malkin and Kessel. For me his line mates are his selling point, the talent that he’s with will help him along this season. Another thing, Guentzel has been a point getting his whole career having scored 17 in 16 for the Pens minor team and 14 in 10 during last seasons playoffs.
Evander Kane & Sam Reinhart – Buffalo Sabres
ESPN Owned Percentage: 30.2% & 19.8%
These two guys didn’t make the list due to there recent performances, but for the fact that Jack Eichel is expected to make his season debut on Thursday. Having a talent like Eichel back in the lineup is going to improve anybody’s game. Reinhart does have a respectable ten points whilst Kane only has two, with Eichel back with them you can almost guarantee that their numbers will get better. Both forwards had 20 goals last season, they are defiantly more than capable of doing the same this year.
Anthony DeAngelo – Arizona Coyotes
EPSN Owned Percentage: 17.9%
The former Tampa Bay first-round is making himself right at home in the desert. DeAngelo has found his way onto the top power play unit, scoring three points on the man advantage. The young defensemen has scored nine points altogether and has become a very productive so far in his young career. DeAngelo will be a solid addition to your lineup.
Jonas Brodin – Minnesota Wild
ESPN Owned Percentage: 7.4%
Despite not have a point for a nine-game stretch, Brodin has started to put together some excellent performances scoring six points in as many games. During this stretch, the 23-year-old was playing on the power play for the wild where he collected three out of his six points. Brodin is being given every opportunity to make your team better and will add some solid depth to your roster.
Oscar Klefbom – Edmonton Oilers
ESPN Owned Percentage: 20.2%
Klefbom is easily the Oilers best offensive defensemen and is finally hitting the net. The Oilers is hot right now, scoring all three of his goals in the past six games. Much like the other players on this list, Klefbom can be found on the top power play unit with the league’s top scorer, Connor McDavid. The Swede leads Oilers defensemen with shots on goal so if your league that adds points for that then Klefbom is your guy.
Chad Johnson – Calgary Flames
ESPN Owned Percentage: 29.3%
Originally suppose to be the backup to Elliott, Johnson is becoming the number one goalie in Calgary. Johnson has much better numbers than Elliott, currently holding 2.23 goals against whilst having 348 shots against, Elliot has a 3.43 with 346 shots against. If you have Elliott it’s time to say goodbye and allowing Johnson to fill his spot.
