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

Center
Steve Reinprecht 
 - In his last four games he has four goals and assists (1.25 points per game).  Prior to that he had 21 points in 37 games (.57 per gamea).  

Winger
Shane Doan
- Doan has scored a point in his last four games, tallying seven points (1.75 points per game) during the stretch.  Prior to that outburst he scored 28 points in 36 games (.78 per game).  It’s not a flash in the pan either because he has 13 points in his last twelve games (1.08 per game).

Defenseman
Mark Streit - Streit has scored in three straight games, tallying 4 points (1.3 points per game) during the stretch, which is a vast improvement over the .56 points per game he averaged in his first 39 games.  He’s been playing decent hockey for a while though, scoring 11 points in his last 13 games (.85 per game)

Goalie
Antero Niittymaki  - On the season, Niittymaki is 6-4 with a 2.29 Goals Against Average.  In his last three games between the pipes he’s 3-0 with a 1.00 GAA and a 97.5 Save Percentage.  He doesn’t get the call all that often, but when he does, he delivers.
