Fantasy Hockey Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
December 24, 2015
The NHL is currently on a three-day break, and won’t get back to business until Saturday. That said, it’s a great time to take stock of our fantasy hockey lineups and see where we can make a few changes. Let’s check out the trending names on the waiver wire and see if anyone’s a good fit for your seasonal or daily league.
Louis Domingue, G, Arizona Coyotes: Domingue continues to show his stuff lately. He’s coming off another victory on Tuesday, this one a 3-2 decision over Toronto. He made 37 saves in that one.
Domingue now has a 2-0 record in his last two games, allowing just two goals and bagging 64 total saves. The youngster is looking pretty good these days, and looks to be a better backup than Anders Lindbach. The Coyotes get the Kings Saturday.

Jason Demers, D, Dallas Stars: Now let’s move on to defensemen. Demers is the guy right now if you’re in the market. He’s coming off two assists and a plus-2 rating in his last game against the Blackhawks.
Demers now has four goals and 10 assists in 29 games. Even better, he’s rocking a plus-16 rating these days. He’ll be in St. Louis when the Stars get back to business.
Teddy Purcell, LW/RW, Edmonton Oilers: Purcell is coming off a nice game against the Jets. He logged a pair of goals and an assist with a plus-3 rating in that one, giving him four goals and six assists in his last eight games.
Purcell has eight goals and 15 assists on the season so far, and he’s still available in around 80 percent of the leagues out there. He’ll be in Vancouver on Saturday.
Tyler Bozak, C, Toronto Maple Leafs: Bozak continued his solid run in Arizona during his last appearance, posting an assist and a plus-1 rating in the loss. He’s got five assists and four goals in his last seven games overall.
Bozak has accumulated eight goals and 15 assists with a plus-3 mark on the season. When the Leafs get back to work, he’ll be in New York to visit the Islanders.
Johnny Oduya, D, Dallas Stars: Let’s finish up on defense and check out Oduya. He put up an assist against the Blackhawks in his last game, posting a plus-2 rating in that one. That gives him two goals and two assists in his last five outings.
Oduya has been turning it on lately, and now has four goals with nine helpers on the season. His most impressive mark, however, is his plus-15 rating. He’ll get to go to St. Louis to see the Blues Saturday.
