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

Center
Matt Stajan, Toronto
- Stajan has 6 Points (3 Goals, 3 Assists) in his last four games (1.5 ppg) tallying at least a Point in each of those games after going without a point in his first five games.  He only had 33 points in 82 games last year ((0.40) so this outburst is a pleasant surprise.  He’s a bargain in the Sporting News Salary Cap league at $1.97M.

Winger
Milan Lucic, Boston
- Lucic has 4 Points (3 Goals, 1 Assist) in his last four games, which is double the points per game he recorded in his first six games (3 points, 0.5 ppg).  Both are up from the 27 Points he had in 77 games (0.35) last year.  Plus, he’s a steal at $0.71M.

Defenseman
Niklas Kronwall, Detroit
- Kronwall has 5 points (1 Goal, 4 Assists) in his last four games (1.25 ppg) after having just 1 points in his first six (.017).    He had 35 points in 65 games (0.54) last year.  Kronwall will cost you $1.93 in the SN game.

Goalie
Peter Budaj, Colorado - Budaj is 2-1 in his last three games with a 1.65 GAA.  He’s stopped 94.2% of his shots.  He was 1-3 in his first four games.  His hot stretch has lowered his season GAA to 3.01 and raised his Save Percentage to 88.9%
