Fantasy Hockey 2015-16: Sleeper Picks 2/25
Fantasy Hockey Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Tonight's Matchups
February 25, 2016
We’ve got a big NHL schedule coming up tonight (10 games), so what better time is there than now to check out some of the notable waiver wire adds trending in seasonal and daily fantasy hockey leagues? Let’s take a closer look at the numbers and see if anyone is right for your team.
Boone Jenner, C/LW, Columbus Blue Jackets: Jenner has been on a nice run lately, and he’s near the top of the waiver wire charts because of it. In his last two games, he’s accounted for three goals.
That gives Jenner a total of 22 goals and 13 assists on the season. His plus-minus isn’t that great (minus-7) but has been better lately. He’ll look to get closer to that 30-goal mark tonight against the Devils.

Michael Stone, D, Arizona Coyotes: Stone is the defenseman to have right now if you’re in the fantasy market. He’s been on an assists tear, logging six helpers and a goal in seven games.
Stone has four goals and 23 assists on the year so far. He’s only failed to record a point in one of his last five appearances. He will be in Florida for the Panthers tonight.
Martin Hanzal, C, Arizona Coyotes: Before we move on from the Coyotes, let’s check in on Hanzal. He’s been blanked on the score sheet his past few times out, but has snagged four PIM, seven shots on goal and seven hits in that span.
Hanzal has 10 goals and 22 assists on the season and is capable of getting on a points run at any time. He’s a nice lower-end pickup for that Panthers matchup.
Joni Ortio, G, Calgary Flames: As far as low-end plug-and-play goalies go, Ortio is a good guy to have. He’s coming off a pretty good performance in L.A., allowing two goals on 37 shots in a loss to the Kings.
Ortio has a 3.60 GAA and a .877 saves percentage, but has done pretty well lately. He’s allowed four total goals in his last two appearances. He’ll likely get some more action as a spot-starter since the Flames don’t have a whole lot of options right now.
Brayden Schenn, C/LW, Philadelphia Flyers: Schenn is still available in a little less than half the leagues out there, and he’s worth kicking the tires on. In his last five games, he’s got three goals and three assists to his credit.
Schenn has 18 goals and 18 assists thus far, and will try to improve on those numbers tonight at home against the incoming Wild.
