Jaden Schwartz (C/LW – SEA): 63% rostered
Prior to last night, Schwartz was on a nine-game point streak with six goals and 12 points. His increased ice time of 19:09 during this streak and skating on the top power-play line make him a top add for Week 6.
Robert Thomas (C – STL): 45% rostered
Thomas is drawing attention with a six-game, 10-point streak, including a four-assist performance. While he doesn’t offer much in peripheral categories, his increased shooting and average ice time over 20 minutes are notable. The Blues are an extremely efficient team that is heating up, and Thomas is front and center of this increase in production.
Oliver Bjorkstrand (RW – SEA): 31% rostered
Benefiting from the same favorable schedule as Schwartz, Bjorkstrand has scored four goals in his past five games. He leads his team in shot attempts on the power play and is a solid option if Schwartz is already taken.
Leo Carlsson (C – ANA): 21% rostered
The 18-year-old rookie has quickly asserted himself as a valuable on-ice asset. Carlsson is already a Top 6 player, skating on the first line with Alex Killorn and Troy Terry, and he has six goals and two assists in his first 10 games. While there are rumors he was supposed to be on a time restriction, his 18:21 TOI and 3:35 of power play time make him a worthy add for Week 6.
