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

Center
 T.J. Oshie, St. Louis Blues – T.J. has 11 points (4 goals, 7 assist) and a +4 rating in his last nine games (1.22 points per game).  He had 25 points and a +12 rating in his first 42 games (0.60).  He has a salary cap of $0.50 in the SportingNews salary cap game, and is owned in 2.6% of ESPN and 5% of Yahoo leagues.

Winger
Ales Kotalik, Edmonton Oilers
– Ales is riding a four-game goal streak.  He has a +2 rating during that stretch.  He had 36 points (14 goals, 22 assist) and a -8 rating in his first 65 games (0.55).  His SN cap number is $1.79M, and is owned in 30% of ESPN and 21% of Yahoo leagues.

Defenseman
Brent Seabrook, Chicago Blackhawks
– Besides having a killer last name, Seabrook has five points (1 goal, 4 assists) and a +2 rating in his last five games.  He had 18 points (6 goals, 12 assists) and a +18 rating in his first 69 games (0.26).  He has a $1.29M SN cap number, and is owned in 94.7% of ESPN and 50% of Yahoo leagues.

Goalie
Chris Mason, St. Louis Blues
– I’ve profiled him before, but judging by his $3.47M SN cap number and ownership (44.4% in ESPN and 60% in Yahoo), I need to call attention to him again.  Chris has won his last five games with a 1.80 Goals Against Avergage and 93.3% Save Percentage.  He was 18-20-6 with a 91.5% Save Percentage before his streak, which help lower his season GAA to 2.44.
