As the NHL and its teams prepare for the stretch run, trade talk begins to really fly as the Feb. 28 deadline fast approaches. Teams look to shore up their rosters, whether they need more scoring, better defense or a more trusted hand in net. The same goes for fantasy owners, as their postseason comes much sooner than the NHL version.
One player that could come available prior to Monday is New Jersey Devils netminder Johan Hedberg. Martin Brodeur has not had the season fantasy owners or the Devils themselves had expected. With his knee injury and Hedberg's strong play, Brodeur has found himself on the bench since he was deemed healthy. Since Feb. 8, Hedberg is 7-0 with two shutouts, a 0.98 goals-against average and .959 save percentage. The Devils are on an eight-game win streak and likely will continue to ride Hedberg as long as he continues to produce.
