In this section, I 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) and thus exclude player’s salaries.
A big night for hockey. We saw 11 games and 22 teams in action, of which numerous players stood out. Some normally unheard of names make the list as we see some new players make become fantasyworthy. Here are our standout fantasy stars for the evening:
THIRD STAR: Michael Frolik, Florida Panthers (0-0-1) – Frolik led his Panthers to a 4-1 victory over the Flyers last night. A native of Kladno, Czechoslovakia, the same town as Jaromir Jagr, the 21-year-old scored a powerplay goal. In addition, Frolik posted two assists (1 PP, 1 ES), took two shots on goal, sat two minutes and finished a plus one. With 23 points now in 38 games, he now projects to post 50 points, a five point improvement from his last year totals.
