Fantasy Hockey 2015-16: Waiver Wire Update 3/3
Fantasy Hockey Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Tonight's Matchups
March 3, 2016
We’ve got a huge evening of NHL action coming our way tonight, which means there will be lots to do in our seasonal and daily hockey leagues. That said, let’s take a look at the waiver wire and check out a few sleepers who are trending as we get closer to the weekend.
Jean-Gabriel Pageau, C, Ottawa Senators: Pageau has drawn plenty of fantasy attention this week, thanks mostly to his six-game points streak. In his most recent appearance, he scored twice in a loss to the Blues.
Pageau has three goals and five assists during his points streak, which gives him 16 scores and 15 assists on the year. We’d say that’s some nice value heading into a matchup with the Lightning tonight.

Mikkel Boedker, LW/RW, Colorado Avalanche: Boedker is still available in more than 2/3 of the leagues out there, and should have your attention. Over his past two games, he’s produced five shots on goal and two assists.
Boedker has 13 goals and 27 assists so far this year, and things seem to be gelling pretty well for him in Colorado. He will be at home against the Panthers tonight.
Vincent Trochek, C/RW, Florida Panthers: Speaking of that Panthers-Avs matchup tonight, Trocheck is similarly available in about 2/3 of the leagues out there. He’s been producing at a steady clip lately, with three assists and two goals in his last six games.
Trocheck also has a plus-4 rating in that span. On the season, he’s got 19 goals and 21 assists as one of the driving forces behind the Panthers attack. Definitely kick the tires here if you can.
Alec Martinez, D, Los Angeles Kings: If you need some lower-end defensive help, Martinez is your man. In his last five games, he has two assists and a goal, nad posted five hits with three shots on goal in the loss to Anaheim in his last appearance.
Martinez has eight goals and 16 assists this year with a nice plus-18 rating. He should be good for a handful of shots and hits against the incoming Canadiens tonight.
Nino Niederreiter, RW, Minnesota Wild: Niederreiter should definitely be on your radar by now. He snagged two goals, an assist and a plus-3 rating against Colorado in his last time out. That makes five goals and four assists since February 15.
Niederreiter is on a career pace this season with 14 goals and 19 assists. He should be on your roster in Toronto tonight.
