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
- Matt has 9 points (1 Goal, 8 Assists) in his last 5 games (1.8 points per game).  He has at least a point in each of those five games.  In his first 11 games he had just 7 Points (0.6).  In the Sporting News salary cap league he’s a bargain at $1.71M.

Winger
Mark Parrish, Dallas 
- Talk about a season debut.  Mark netted a Hat Trick for Dallas.  He hasn’t scored in the three games since, but he’s been a pretty prolific scorer in his career (nine seasons of 30+ points) and is clocking in at a bargain $0.51M.

Defenseman
Keith Yandle, Phoenix 
- Ketih has netted four points (4 assists) in his last four games, which has doubled his season output.  He had four point (1 goal, 3 assists) in his first 7 games (0.57).  His SN cap number is $0.50M.

Goalie
Brent Johnson, Washington
- Brent went 3-0 last week for the Capitals with a 1.73 GAA and a 94.9% Save percentage.  He was 2-1 with 2 OT losses prior to his hot streak, which helped lower his season numbers to 2.16 GAA and 93.1% Save percentage.  He’s also a bargain at $2.97M.

    People might want to be a little wary of Johnson for a little while. I watched the Canes/Caps game the other night and he was pulled at the start of the 2nd period due to a groin injury. I am not sure how serious it is, but folks interested in him might want to research that before picking him up.
