Fantasy Hockey 2014-15: Waiver Wire Update 2/10
Fantasy Hockey Daily Leagues: Waiver Pickups and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
February 10, 2015
There are nine NHL games on the schedule tonight, which makes this morning a good time for our weekly waiver wire outlook in the world of fantasy hockey. We’ve got a few trending names for you to peruse today, so let’s take a closer look at the stats and see if anyone’s right for your team.
Mathieu Perreault, C/LW, Winnipeg Jets: We’ve visited with Perreault a few times over the past several weeks, and he continues to pop up on the radar. He’s coming off a nice game against the Avs, during which he posted a goal and two assists.
Perreault is on pace for a career-year points-wise, as he’s already got 18 goals and 17 helpers. He’s a nice pickup for the lower-end right now.

Travis Hamonic, D, NY Islanders: It’s been a while since we’ve seen Hamonic with a multi-point game (almost a year) but he did it with two assists in Buffalo over the weekend. That gives him three points in his last two games.
Hamonic has three goals and 14 assists this season as the points continue to trickle in. he’s not a bad add right now while he’s hot, but just don’t expect the major points trend to hold.
John Klingberg, D, Dallas Stars: Let’s stay on defense for a moment and check out Klingberg. He put up an assist in the Stars’ much-needed win in New York against the Rangers on Sunday, giving him a three-game points streak.
Klingberg has 10 goals, 18 assists and a nice plus-10 rating so far this year. In his last six games, he has four goals and six helpers to his credit. Get on the train while he’s hot; there’s no telling how long it’ll last.
Ray Emery, G, Philadelphia Flyers: With Steve Mason down, Emery has been a very much-added goalie in the fantasy game. He stopped five of six shots in relief against Washington Sunday, picking up his second win in three appearances.
There’s no telling how long the Flyers will have to rely on Emery, and he’s a gamble either way. He’s capable of solid numbers but also can stink up the joint if he’s so inclined. Still, if you’re in a bind he’s an okay pickup.
David Desharnais, C, Montreal Canadiens: Let’s finish up today with Desharnais, who has been on a nice run lately that’s got him near the top of the waiver wire rankings. He’s coming off an assist and a plus-2 rating in a win in Boston, and will head home to host the Flyers tonight.
Desharnais has a four-game points streak to his credit, putting up a goal and six assists in that frame. He’s got eight goals, 23 helpers and a smooth plus-14 rating on the year. He’s also plus-8 in his last four outings.
