Daily Fantasy 3 Stars 11/19/2009

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.
