We’re heading into a very busy Thursday evening in the NHL, so it’s a good time to check out some of the hot fantasy hockey waiver wire adds in daily and seasonal leagues. We’ve got a fresh crop of intriguing names for you this morning, so let’s take a closer look at the stats and trends to see if anyone’s right for your roster.

Leon Draisaitl, C, Edmonton Oilers: Draisaitl hit a dry patch there for a couple of games, but he’s back atop the waiver wire standings this morning after three points in a win against Anaheim last night. He had a goal and two helpers in that one, leading to a plus-3 rating.
Draisaitl now has 10 points in just six games thus far, and he’s been quite the dynamo for Edmonton. He’ll get a chance to add to the run tonight on the road against the Coyotes.

Reto Berra, G, Colorado Avalanche: It’s looking like Berra is going to get the nod to start in Boston tonight, so he’ll be an option for deeper-league owners in need of a goalie. He’s coming off a shutout win over Philly, snagging 25 saves in a 4-0 win.
As long as Berra keeps playing well, he’ll probably continue to see ice time. With Semyon Varlamov lurking, however, it’s hard to see him panning out into much more than a spot starter.

Jason Demers, D, Dallas Stars: Demers is still available in about half of the fantasy leagues out there, but that could change if he keeps playing well. He’s coming off two assists and a plus-2 rating against Toronto.
That gives Demers four goals and six assists thus far to go along with a plus-5 rating overall. He’ll be at home against Winnipeg tonight.

Jannik Hansen, RW, Vancouver Canucks: If you’re looking for a deep add, Hansen is a candidate for you. He put up a stellar game in Columbus, posting a goal and three assists with a plus-5 rating.
Hansen is making the most of his ice time this season, with four goals and six assists to go along with a sweet plus-10 rating. He’ll be in Ottawa tonight to try and keep the run going.

Joel Ward, RW, San Jose Sharks: Ward doesn’t play until tomorrow night, but we should still give him a look this morning. He had four shots on goal in the Islanders loss, leading to a goal and an assist in 18:02 of ice time.
Ward has been a steady source of points this year so far, with eight scores and six helpers overall. He will next be on the ice tomorrow night in Detroit to start out a lengthy road trip.
