Meanwhile, if you’re still going at it – here’s your final week outlook.

After a very busy 56 game schedule last week, the final seven days of the NHL regular season will feature a 55 game slate.

Monday – 3 games

Tuesday – 13 games

Wednesday – 2 games

Thursday – 12 games

Friday – 1 game

Saturday – 14 games

Sunday – 10 games


Like Carolina and Nashville last week, the Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs will be very busy. Each squad has FIVE GAMES in SEVEN DAYS.


OTTAWA (Monday: @DET, Tuesday: DET, Thursday: @BOS, Saturday: NYR, Sunday: @NYI)


Waiver Looks

  • Derick Brassard
  • Cody Ceci
  • Ryan Dzingel
  • Dion Phaneuf


TOR (Monday: @BUF, Tuesday: WSH, Thursday: TBL, Saturday: PIT, Sunday: CBJ)


Waiver Looks

  • Leo Komarov
  • Connor Brown
  • Nikita Zaitsev
  • Zach Hyman


Also, you should take a look at adding some players from the Montreal Canadiens. Their 4 game week schedule features Mon/Wed/Fri. (@FLA, @BUF, TBL)

With Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday all stacked with games – it’s key to hit the wire in search of some players for the ‘dark’ nights.



Jarome Iginla – LW, RW – LA Kings

Brendan Gallagher – RW – Montreal Canadiens

Jordan Weal – C – Philadelphia Flyers

Tanner Kero – C, RW – Chicago Blackhawks
