Fantasy Hockey Waiver Wire Pickups: 11/10

Electric 20-year-old rookie Mathew Barzal has 14 points in 15 games

I hope Jagr plays until he is 50.

Ownership totals are in ESPN leagues as of Friday Morning.

Mathew Barzal (C – NYI): 39.2%
People have taken notice of young Barzal after his five-point night against the Avs earlier this week, but the truth is that this kid has been bringing it all season. A 57.5 CF% to go along with a 66.7% GF%? Yeah, that’ll play. Now he’s getting power play time with the first unit? Go pick this kid up if he’s available.

Tim Heed (D – SJ): 12.1%
Tim Heed might be a thing? Granted he’s playing very sheltered third pairing minutes with Brendan Dillon, but it’s not like Torey Krug hasn’t made a career of just that. My man’s even started playing on the first power-play unit with the heavy hitters Burns, Thorton, Pavelski, and Couture. The low TOI may hamper his overall production, but he’s undoubtedly stuffing the stat sheet when he gets on the ice – seven points in 12 games to go along with a pretty healthy 28 shots on goal.

Antti Raanta (G – ARI): 11.6%
Antti Raanta is back from injury and has looked good! The rest of the Coyotes…have not. Arizona’s inability to win any game (Two wins in 18 games? Good lord!) will pose an issue for Raanta.

However, a big part of their horrid start was the fact they had to start Scott Wedgewood (90.9 SV%), Louis Domingue (85.6 SV%), and Adin Hill (88 SV%) for 11 games. As Raanta has shown himself capable over his time in the league (career 91.7 SV%) and will most certainly be the No. 1 option in the desert, he should at a very minimum be a serviceable fantasy goalie.

Mikko Rantanen (RW – COL): 42.4% or Gabriel Landeskog (LW – COL): 37.5%
Let’s get a two-for-one here on Avs first-liners shall we? Mikko Rantanen is finally doing the Large Finnish Son™ things he was promised to do when he was taken 10th overall in the 2015 Draft, notching 12 points in his first 14 games.

Similarly, Landeskog is putting together a rebound campaign after his horrid season last year, with 10 points in 14 games. Now, with Matt Duchene gone, these guys will get every opportunity to put up points on this team.
