Fantasy Hockey 2015-16: Waiver Wire Update 3/24
Fantasy Hockey Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Tonight's Matchups
March 24, 2016
The NHL has an absolutely huge schedule coming up tonight, and that means we’ll be seeing lots of added action in seasonal and daily fantasy hockey leagues. That said, let’s check out some of the notable players getting attention on the waiver wire and see if anyone’s right for your squad.
Devante Smith-Pelly, RW, New Jersey Devils: It’s been a few days since Smith-Pelly has played, so let’s revisit him and see what he’s been up to. Over his last nine games, he’s collected seven goals and three assists.
Smith-Pelly has 13 goals and nine helpers on the year. He will get back to business tonight in Pittsburgh against the Penguins.

Trevor Daley, D, Pittsburgh Penguins: Speaking of the Penguins, Daley is also pretty high on the waiver wire radar. Over his last two games, he’s scored twice and assisted twice more. He’s also got a plus-7 rating in his last six outings.
That makes six goals and 18 assists for Daley so far this year. He gets Jersey tonight before heading to Detroit and New York this weekend.
Jakob Silfverberg, LW/RW, Anaheim Ducks: Silfverberg is still available in about 2/3 of the leagues out there, which is bound to change if he keeps playing like this. He has six goals and two assists in his last five games, good enough for a plus-8 rating to go along with it.
Silfverberg has 15 goals and 16 assists this season. Tonight, the Ducks’ road trip will continue in Toronto before they head to Ottawa and Edmonton.
Travis Zajac, C, New Jersey Devils: Let’s head back to the Devils briefly and check out Zajac. He’s been solid in the points categories, posting three assists and two goals in his last six games.
Zajac has a healthy 12 goals and 26 assists this season, and he’s still available in almost 90 percent of the leagues out there.
Michael Stone, D, Arizona Coyotes: Let’s finish up on defense today and check out Stone. He’s still available in almost 2/3 of the leagues out there, despite putting up five assists and a goal in his last seven games.
Stone has collected five goals and 29 assists on the year, but has something of a crummy minus-12 rating. He will get the incoming Stars in a late game tonight.
