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

Center
Patrick O’Sullivan, Los Angeles
  – Patrick had five points (all assists) in his last four games (1.25 points per game) for the Kings and has at least a point in five straight games.  He had 14 points (7 goals, 7 assists) in his first 25 games (0.56).  I’d like to see him light the lamp every once in a while, but you can’t argue with his recent production.  He’s a great value in Sporting News salary cap leagues at $2.21M.

Winger
Ruslan Fedotenko, Pittsburgh
- Fedotenko has six points (3 goals, 3 assists) in last four games (1.5).  He’s tallied at least a point in each of those four games.  He had 9 points (5 goals, 4 assists) in his first 24 games (0.38).  His +/- in his last four games is +3 and +1 for the first 24.  His SN Cap number is $1.13M

Defenseman
Duncan Keith, Chicago
- Duncan has 4 points (all assists) in his last four games for the Blackhawks.  He had 10 points (2 goals, 8 assists) in his first 24 games (0.42).  His +/- of +7 in his last four games matched the +7 he had in his first 24 games.

Goalie
Steve Mason, Columbus
- Mason went 2-1 in his last three games with a Goals Agasint Average of 1.32 and a 95.1% save percentage.  He was 6-4-1 with a 91.5% save percentage in his first eleven games.  His hot streak has lowered his GAA to 2.00.  He’s a nice value at $3.57M.

    the Caps were beating Boston (I think) the other night and the Caps announcer was saying the goalie on the bench was playing at an all star level
