Anaheim Ducks v Chicago Blackhawks

Another new feature here on NHLHS. I will break down the top three fantasy hockey performers every night and cite why I chose them in particular. In addition, I will track the amount of times the players have received this honor and tally them at the end of the season. For the sake of clarity, I will be using Yahoo! standard categories (Forwards – G,A,+/-, PP,PIM, SOG; Goalies – W,GAA,SV%,SHO)

THIRD STAR: Kristian Huselius (0-0-1), Columbus Blue Jackets – Huselius had a huge fantasy night on Thursday.  The 31 year old winger potted two goals, one on the power-play and the other shorthanded.  He also added an assist, four shots and was a plus one.  Mostly branded as inconsistent throughout his career the Swedish native has been known to have big nights like this.  In total, Huselius contributed to five of out six fantasy categories making him our third star of the evening.

SECOND STAR: Ilya Kovalchuk, Atlanta Thrashers (0-1-0) – The Thrasher’s captain continues his hot streak with a truly dominant performance against the Bruins.  With one goal and two assists, Kovy added to his impressive points totals.  His production does not stop there as the impending free agent added four shots, two power-play points and finished a plus one, contributing to five offensive categories.

FIRST STAR: Duncan Keith, Chicago Blackhawks (1-0-0) – This young and talented blue liner provided a boost to every fantasy team there is last night.  Although held out of the scoring column, Keith produced in every other category and did so in style.  Three assists (two on the power-play), two penalty minutes, two shots and a plus two make him our first star.

HONORABLE MENTION(S): Maxim Afinogenov, Dennis Wideman, Michael Ryder, Chris Kelly, Keith Tkachuk, Christobal Huet, Steve Mason
