NHL Fantasy 3 Stars: Week 20
Total Pro Sports – This week’s 3 Stars sees two of the league’s bright young stars shine while two of the league’s more dependable veterans show that they still have some skill left in their sticks…and pads.
This week’s honorable mention goes to Mike Richards of the Philadelphia Flyers. Last week Richards scored 3 goals and added 5 assists for 8 points with one of those points coming on the power play. He also had 9 shots on goal, 2 penalty minutes and a plus/minus rating of plus-5. Mike has had a fantastic year so far totaling 23 goals and 37 assists for 60 points and a plus/minus rating of plus-23 in 54 games.
Lets take a look at the NHL Fantasy 3 Stars for Week 20.
3rd Star – Pavel Kubina (D), Toronto Maple Leafs
Pavel Kubina may not be waiving his no-trade clause for the Leafs but he sure is increasing his value with his strong play as of late. Last week Kubina scored 1 goal and had 5 helpers for 6 points with 4 of those points coming on the power play. Pavel also registered 10 shots on goal, 4 penalty minutes and a plus/minus rating of plus-2. I would be wherry of Kubina as he does have a nice amount of points but a bad plus/minus rating of minus-7 on the year.
Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane are becoming one the league’s most dynamic duos. Last week Toews collected 4 goals and 2 assists for 6 points with 2 of those points coming on the power play. He also registered 17 shots on goal, 8 penalty minutes and a plus/minus rating of plus-4. Jonathan has been coming on strong since his poor start and is definitely one of the top players when it comes to keeper leagues.
1st Star – Tomas Vokoun (G), Florida Panthers
For the second week in a row Tomas Vokoun makes the list, this time as the 1st Star. Last week Vokoun posted 2 wins while posting a 1.33 GAA, .975 SAV% and 2 shutouts. Tomas has managed to re-gain his All-Star form from a year ago and is the main reason why the Panthers are looking to make the playoffs for the first time since 2000 when Mike Vernon was their starting goaltender.
