Steve Ott, Dallas - Ott has been on fire with 12 points (6 goals, 6 assists) and a +5 rating in his last eight games (1.5 points per game).

Jere Lehtinen, Dallas - Another Star player has been heating up of late. Lehtinen has 13 points (5 goals, 13 assists) and a +6 rating in his last ten games (1.3). He had 7 points (1 goal, 6 assists) and an even rating in his first 14 games (0.5). He has a SN cap number of $1.85, and is owned in 73.1% of ESPN and 13% of Yahoo leagues.
Matt Niskanen, Dallas - I’m starting to see a common theme here. Niskanen has 8 points, all assists, and a +7 rating in his his current five game points streak (1.6). He had 16 points (4 goals, 12 assists) and a -11 rating in his first 45 games (0.36). He has a SN cap number of $0.57M, and is owned in 8.7% of ESPN and 31% of Yahoo leagues.
Chris Mason, St. Louis – I had to end the run of Dallas players. Mason has been standing on his head of late. In his last nine games he’s 5-2-2 with a 1.43 Goals Against Average and a 95.0% Save Percentage. In his first 18 games he was 3-12-1,which is quite a turnaround. Aside from a horrendous December in which he went 0-6 with a 4.32 GAA has been pretty steady all year. He has a $3.43M SN cap number and is owned in 15.1% of ESPN and 30% of Yahoo leagues.
