With roughly a month’s worth of NHL action in the books for the 2019-20 season, certain players from around the league are finding their stride.
One of those players is Christian Dvorak of the Arizona Coyotes. The Yotes don’t have a whole lot of high-end talent down the middle, but the 23-year-old has stepped up and played well early on. His four goals tie him for second-most on the team, and he’s now slotted on the squad’s first line and first power-play unit. Dvorak’s goal-scoring abilities shouldn’t come as a surprise, as he did record over 50 goals in a season when playing junior hockey with the London Knights and was a second-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft. He’s currently owned in just 4% of Yahoo fantasy hockey leagues.
Colorado Avalanche forward Joonas Donskoi is off to a pretty nice start and he finds himself in a fantasy-friendly spot. The injury to Mikko Rantanen has created an opening on the team’s first line, and the chance to own a player skating alongside Nathan MacKinnon is just too good to pass up. This isn’t a league-winning move more than it is a week-winning add as Donskoi’s value is solely tied to Rantanen’s absence. He’s currently rostered in 7% of Yahoo fantasy hockey leagues.
Some other low ownership players worth monitoring are: Joel Armia (21% owned), Oskar Lindblom (6% owned), Pavel Buchnevich (14% owned) and Devon Toews (13% owned).
