Week eight in fantasy hockey is starting, and some players are emerging as must-own players in many leagues. Finding players on the waiver wire is essential to winning a fantasy hockey and for replacing injured players, either for the short-team or long run. Let’s take a look at which players you should be targeting on the waiver wire this week.
Jimmy Hayes | Florida Panthers | Yahoo! Ownership- 2%
Jimmy who? It’s fair to say not many fantasy owners know who Hayes is, but they are starting to find out. The 25-year-old Boston native has nine points (4G, 5A) in 12 games with a plus-5 rating and 30 shots on goal (SOG). The second round pick in 2008 has three power play point s– one power play goal — and is averaging a respectable 13 minutes per game. He’s doing all this while playing on the third line with Jussi Jokinen and Vincent Trocheck, but expect that to change as the season goes on. The time is now to add the winger. Don’t sleep on him.
