December Fantasy 3 Stars

01/02/2010
Montreal Canadiens v New York Islanders

In this section, I break down the top three fantasy hockey performers for the month 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) which also excludes player salaries.

THIRD STAR: Patrick Kane, Chicago Blackhawks (0-0-1) –  The 21-year-old right wing turned in an impressive and dominating month, finishing with 19 points, eight of which were goals.  The Buffalo, New York native fired a whopping 57 shots on goal over the month, tied with Ovechkin, an equally impressive feat.  His six powerplay points helped his owners as did a plus seven rating over that span.  Not know for his physical play, 20 cent even contributed four penalty minutes.  Throughout the year the former first overall stabilized his efforts becoming much more of a consistent scoring threat.  He will try to continue his scoring prowess when he represents Team USA in the Olympics this February.

November Fantasy 3 Stars

12/01/2009
Calgary Flames v Anaheim Ducks

In this section, I break down the top three fantasy hockey performers for the month 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) which also excludes player salaries.

THIRD STAR: Zach Parise, New Jersey Devils (0-0-1) – Perhaps the main attraction of Team USA, Parise’s consistent effort puts him on this list.  The 25-year-old scored nine goals and seven assists with five points coming on the powerplay.  Moreover, the left wing added 50 shots on goal and a plus 15.  Although his zero PIM could use a boost, his stellar stats among the other five categories render him a legitimate first rounder

SECOND STAR: Maxim Afinogenov, Atlanta Thrashers (0-1-0) –After last season’s hapless effort, Max seemed poised to flee to the KHL.  Instead he stayed in North America, signing for 800K with Atlanta and becoming one of the most cost-efficient players in hockey.  The 30-year-old scored eight goals and had ten assists in the month of November, five of which coming on the powerplay.  He posted nearly a 25 percent chance of scoring, taking 21 shots on goal and finished the month a healthy plus 12. Afinogenov deserves some mention after the monstrous month he put up and his return to relevance.
