Fantasy Hockey 2014-15: Waiver Wire Update 1/20
Fantasy Hockey Daily Leagues: Waiver Pickups and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
January 20, 2015
We’re in the midst of a pretty steady stream of NHL action, which makes this a good time to check out some of the notable players out there on the fantasy hockey waiver wire. There are a handful of viable pickups currently trending as adds, so let’s check the stats and see which guys might be worth your time.
Tomas Tatar, LW, Detroit Red Wings: Tatar has been snatched up in a lot of leagues by now, thanks to his stellar season. He’s working on a five-game points streak right now, with five goals and three assists in that span.
Tatar is having a career year, so it’s hard telling how far he can carry this production. We’ll see if he can make it six games tonight when the Wild come to town. Pick him up before then if you can.

Zach Bogosian, D, Winnipeg Jets: After returning from injury a few games back, Bogosian promptly went on a tear that had fantasy owners taking notice. He’s got three goals and two assists in the past six games, and is sporting a nice plus-8 rating in that time.
Bogosian has 13 points all together this season and is rated at plus-7 overall. If he can continue to get opportunities on a frequent basis, things are looking good for him as a fantasy add.
Tomas Plekanec, C, Montreal Canadiens: Plekanec hasn’t played since Saturday, so let’s refresh ourselves on his recent stats. He posted two goals and two assists in the win over the Islanders in his last outing, giving him three goals and six helpers in his last seven games overall.
Plekanec has 13 scores and 19 assists on the season and is rated at plus-6. He seems to be a decent lower-end C add right now, just don’t expect those two-goal outbursts to happen often.
Mike Fisher, C, Nashville Predators: Fisher is riding a nice hot streak right now, and it’s got him near the top of the waiver wire charts. During his current six-game points streak, he has four goals and three helpers to go along with a plus-5 rating.
Fisher seems to be healthy now and back to his optimum capacity. He missed out on a good chunk of the year due to an Achilles injury.
Colin Wilson, C/LW, Nashville Predators: Let’s stick in Nashville as we finish things up today and check out Wilson. He has been a hot pickup lately, thanks to his six assists and three goals in the last six games.
Wilson broke out last week with a two-goal, two-assist appearance at home against Vancouver, and he’s still a trendy name in the fantasy game. He’ll be in Montreal tonight to try and keep his hot streak going.
