This week I couldn't ignore one guy who you will likely have to trade for and wanted to give a heads up about someone who might be still available on the free agent market.
It seems that Bobby Ryan is finally starting to make the Anaheim Ducks look smart for drafting him 2nd overall, behind Sidney Crosby, in 2005.
Ryan is sizzling right now with 26 points in 26 games heading into action Tuesday, and 12 of those points are goals, including a wicked hatty last Friday.
But before you say it’s about time he made an impact, consider that he would have made the team out of training camp in Anaheim, if the Ducks weren’t in such cap hell to start the year.
Ryan has had 6 multi point games this year, including 3 - 3 point nights.
For those in leagues with in depth stats, Ryan is plus 11 with only 3 games where he’s registered a minus, has 5 ppg, and 2 game winners.
To be fair to Ryan, only 7 players after Crosby and Ryan from the first round in 2005 have played atleast 70 games, and the way the New Jersey native is tearing it up right now, it looks like that list will grow to 8.
Bobby Ryan is one of my fantasy hockey draft prospect pick up of the week.
Even though he's cooled off quite a bit lately with 0 points in 7 games, Matt Hunwick is a guy you should look at scooping up.
The Boston rookie blueliner has 15 points in 31 games and is plus 13 with 21 penalty minutes.
The 7th round pick from 2004 played at Michigan and has only played 55 games in the
His point streak from November 17-28 tied for the longest in team history for a rookie D-man, previously set by Ray Bourque in 1980.
So there you have it, 2 choices to help you now or in the future for your fantasy hockey team.
