‘Keeper Watch’ will come out every Wednesday, noting the changes in value for top prospects who are most likely available in your league. We will also focus on young players once considered top prospects. Similarly to our ‘Endorsed Pickups’ I will try not to focus too much on one position, which will leave some noteworthy players off the list.
Not many rookies on this list, as the rookie boom seems to have slowed in recent weeks. Still there are some young guys worth looking at in your keeper.
LW: Andrei Kostitsyn, Montreal Canadiens – The controversial winger, usually referred to as AK 46, returned to form in the last couple weeks. A former 10th overall pick, the older Kostitsyn now has 14 points over his last 12 games for a team that desperately needs scoring. One can only expect this scoring to continue as this player has the polish and the pedigree not to mention will receive large minutes in lieu of the injury to Brian Gionta.
Prognosis: Grab him and stream him while this trend keeps up.
