March 7, 2015
It’s Saturday, and that means it’s time once again to take a look at some of the trending sleepers and waiver wire adds in the world of fantasy hockey. We’ve got our usual roundup of interesting plays this morning, so let’s check out the recent stats and see if anyone’s right for your team.
John Klingberg, D, Dallas Stars: Klingberg is on quite a nice run recently, capped off by his assist and plus-2 rating against Florida this week. That gives him assists in three straight games, with a plus-2 mark in that span.
Klingberg has 10 goals, 25 assists and a plus-4 on the season so far. He has six points in his last nine games alone, so he’s definitely hot.

Michael Del Zotto, D, Philadelphia Flyers: Let’s stick on defense for a moment and check out Del Zotto, who has been on quite a run himself. In his last appearance against the Blues, he put in a goal and had a plus-3 on the evening.
Del Zotto has eight points in his last 10 games, giving him nine goals and 17 assists on the season so far. He also has two goals in his last three games, which is a nice scoring surge from the defenseman.
David Desharnais, C, Montreal Canadiens: Desharnais is coming off a nice game in Los Angeles against the defending champs, which has spiked his fantasy interest. He posted two assists and a plus-1 rating in that one, giving him three points in the last two games alone.
Desharnais has six points in the last five games--two goals and four assists. He has 11 scores, 30 assists and a nice plus-22 rating this season. If he’s still out there in your league, make sure you remedy that immediately.
Justin Abdelkader, LW/RW, Detroit Red Wings: Following last night’s action, Abdelkader is one of the prize names on the fantasy hockey waiver wire this morning. He scored twice in the loss to Calgary, giving him three goals in his last two games.
Abdelkader also has a three-game points streak to his credit and 16 goals with 18 assists on the season. He’s a nice pickup right now.
Brandon Dubinsky, C/LW, Columbus Blue Jackets: Dubinsky surfaces in this space from time to time, and here he is once again. He was playing his first game after missing time due to a concussion, and scored with an assist last night against the Devils.
Dubinsky has been on quite a run recently. If he’s still out there in your league due to an injury drop, snatch him up before someone else does.
