Need some help with your fantasy hockey team?  You’ve come to the right place.  Try these hot players on for size. 

Sam Gagner  
 - After scoring 35 points in his first sixty-four games (0.55 per game), Gagner has been a madman scoring 10 points (3 goals, 7 assists) in his past seven games (1.43).  He’s had a point in five of his past six games.

Patrick Kane
- I’m sure he’s owned in most leagues, but if you’re in a salary cap league like they have on the SportingNews.com, you’ll want to know that the rookie is heating up.  In his first sixty-six games he had 55 points (0.83).  He has 8 points (1 goal, 7 assists) in his last eight games (1.00).   He’s in the midst of a three-game scoring streak.

Brent Burns 
- Here’s the Wild player that you’ve been clamoring for.  In his first sixty-seven games he had 34 points (0.51).  He has 7 points (3 goals, 4 assists) in his last seven games (1.00). 

Dwayne Roloson 
 - Rolie the Goalie has had an off year.  He’s only been between the pipes in 35 games.  Since March 13th though, he’s played in four contests.  In that time he’s 3-0 with a 2.45 GAA and a .936 save percentage.  Prior to this little hot streak he was 8-14 with a .896 save percentage.  On the year his GAA is 3.07.
