NHL Fantasy 3 Stars: Week 7
Total Pro Sports – For the second week in a row Alexander Ovechkin makes the list while the other two are first timers.
This week’s honorable mention goes to Marc Savard. Savard put up 6 points (2 goals & 4 assists), 3 of which came on the power play. Savard continues to lead the Bruins offence and puts up 80+ points per season since being traded to Atlanta but still flies under most people’s radar.
Lets take a look at the NHL Fantasy 3 Stars for Week 7.
3rd Star – Daniel Sedin (LW), Vancouver Canucks
It’s taken a while but both of the Sedin twins have found their step. Daniel put up 7 points (4 goals & 3 assists) last week. Two of those goals were game winners and he also had 16 shots on goal. The Sedin’s have averaged about 70+ points since the 2005-06 season and are in a contract year, so if you can scoop one of them up in your league, I’d suggest you do it.
2nd Star – Martin Biron (G), Philadelphia Flyers
An unlikely name popping up in the #2 spot. Biron has had an average season so far with some rough patches, but he had a great week last week. Martin won all three of his games while posting a 1.98 GAA, .935 SAV% and one shutout blanking his former team in Buffalo. The Flyers have been playing a lot better this month and Biron seems to have the #1 spot locked up so if you’re thin in net and need a goaltender you’d probably be able to get Biron for fairly cheap.
1st Star – Alexander Ovechkin (LW), Washington Capitals
Well he certainly has hit his stride. The man known as Ovie put up 7 points (2 goals & 5 assists), 5 of those points came on the power play which made up for his minus-5 rating. He also had 20 shots on goal which is big if that’s a stat in your league. With Ovechkin rolling that also means good things for Backstrom owners.
