Fantasy Hockey 2015-16: Waiver Wire Update 3/10
Fantasy Hockey Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Tonight's Matchups
March 10, 2016
We’ve got a strong run of six NHL games coming tonight, so this morning is a good time to double-check those lineups in seasonal and daily fantasy hockey leagues. That said, let’s visit the waiver wire and see if there are any trending players out there worth grabbing for your roster.
Lee Stempniak, LW/RW, Boston Bruins: Stempniak is one of the top waiver wire pickups this week, thanks to a pretty good run of games. He didn’t tally a point in his last outing, but did pick up three shots on goal and three hits.
Stempniak has five assists, a goal and a plus-4 rating in his last four games overall. He will be at home against the incoming Hurricanes tonight.

Zack Smith, C, Ottawa Senators: If you’re not aware of Smith, you need to be. He’s got a crazy points run going right now, scoring a goal in his last three straight and posting at least one point in nine of his last ten.
Smith has 19 goals and eight assists this year with a plus-5 mark. He’s scorching hot-right now as far as lower-end players go, and will take that momentum into Florida to see the Panthers tonight.
Keith Kinkaid, G, New Jersey Devils: Let’s go between the pipes and check out Kinkaid, who is getting work as Cory Schneider gets over a knee injury. His last outing wasn’t great. He allowed six goals on 30 shots to the Penguins in a pretty ugly loss.
That said, Kinkaid is a good lower-end pickup right now if you need goalie help. He carries a 2.74 GAA and a .902 save percentage. He’ll be in San Jose tonight to try and turn things around statistically.
Radko Gudas, D, Philadelphia Flyers: This isn’t’ the first time we’ve discussed Gudas in this space, and it probably won’t be the last, either. He had four hits and a shot on goal in his last appearance, and has registered five assists and two goals in his last eight games.
Gudas carries two goals and eight assists this year, which is actually pretty darn good for him. He won’t be much for scoring, but could give you solid defensive stats in Tampa tonight.
Brayden Schenn, C/LW, Philadelphia Flyers: Let’s head to Philly and check out Schenn, who doesn’t play until tomorrow. In his last three games, he’s posted a plus-3 mark with two assists and a goal to his credit. He also has six shots on goal and nine hits in that time.
Schenn is still available in about a third of the leagues out there, and warrants consideration if he’s on the wire in yours. He’ll be in Tampa for the Lightning tomorrow.
