The fantasy rookies are making a huge impact as Tomas Hertl of the San Jose Sharks goes between his legs and Sean Monahan of the Calgary Flames just keeps going streaking with points to lead early fantasy surprises.
With the Flames only having two games scheduled this week, including a head-to-head matchup of these two rookies on Saturday, Calgary will have more time to decide whether to send the No. 6 pick in the 2013 NHL Draft back to juniors or keep him on the roster. The whole fantasy world awaits general manager Jay Feaster's big decision.
WAIVER WIRE WATCHJakob Silfverberg, Ducks (owned in 38 percent of Yahoo leagues) -- The return of Bobby Ryan to Anaheim was also a chance for the guy he was traded for to show off against his former team. Although Ryan was the one that filled up the score sheet, it is the 23-year-old Silfverberg that needs to be noticed for his play this season. Looking at their head-to-head stats it's been pretty even. Each has five points, Silfverberg has four goals to Ryan's three, and Silfverberg is playing almost as many minutes as the three-time 30-goal scorer he was traded for (79:16 to 85:20 total time on ice). Playing on a line with the ageless wonder, Teemu Selanne, and on the second power-play unit makes the Swedish forward a dangerous player. The Ducks have a great fantasy schedule this week, playing on Wednesday (@CGY), Friday (PHX) and Sunday (DAL), accounting for three of the seven games scheduled those days.
