Fantasy Hockey Waiver Wire for Week 11


RW Alex Killorn, TBL (49%): Killorn is quietly having a career year. With eight points in his last five appearances, the dual eligible winger is up to 24 points in 27 games on the campaign. His career-high is 47 points, but he’s on pace to score an additional 20 points. Playing on the second line with Steven Stamkos, and on the first power-play unit with all of Tampa’s offensive weapons, Killorn is in a great position to succeed.

LW Josh Bailey, NYI (42%): Always an afterthought, yet Bailey continues to produce year after year. He has seven points in his past six games, bringing him up to 21 points on the year. That puts him on pace for 59 points — a slick uptick on last season’s 56-point total. He’s playing on the top line with Mathew Barzal, and he’s on the Islanders’ second power-play unit. If you want a reliable scorer that will consistently be relied upon to score, don’t overlook Bailey.

LW Tanner Pearson, VAN (38%): Pearson’s ownership rate is dropping, but don’t let that trick you into thinking he isn’t producing. He’s on a three-game point streak and has eight points in his last 6 games — courtesy of a four-point performance over the Oilers. He’s up to 20 points in 31 contests. That’s a pace for a 52-point season, nearly doubling last year’s 27-point campaign. Pearson struggled toward the end of his tenure with Los Angeles, and during his time with Pittsburgh. His stock really took a hit, but he’s found new life in Vancouver. He’s playing on the second line with Captain Bo Horvat and on the Canucks second power-play unit. He looks like the Tanner Pearson we saw break into the league on the Kings “That 70’s line.”

LW Dillon Dube, CGY (22%): The Flames have completely jumbled up their lines, splitting up Johhny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan, and Elias Lindholm. It’s working out for them though, as Calgary has strung together six consecutive victories. Dube finds himself playing on Monahan’s wing, and is reaping the rewards. He has six points in his last five games, including a pair of multi-point nights. As long as he remains on Monahan’s line, he’s worth consideration.

C Johan Larsson, BUF (3%): Here’s a name I never expected to make this list. To the surprise of everyone (likely Larsson too), he has seven points in his last nine outings. That brings him up to 12 points through 29 games — not bad for a guy playing on the fourth line. He’s just six points shy of setting a career-high in points. He would only be serviceable to those in deep leagues of course. He can be worth taking a flier on until his offense dries up.


D Ian Cole, COL (21%): You may still be able to pick up his teammate Ryan Graves (45%), who’s also having success. In case you missed him though, chances are Cole is still on the wire. He’s already up to 12 points, just three shy of matching last season’s total. He’s been fairly consistent too, not ever going more than four games without a point. In addition to the offense, he’s picked up 37 hits, 60 blocks, and a plus-15 rating.

D Jonas Brodin, MIN (9%): The defensive stalwart has seen recent success, like many others on Minnesota. The team is proving that they’re not as bad as many pundits expected them to be, and neither are their players. Brodin has six points in as many games, bringing him up to 12 points on the season. That puts him on pace for 31 points, which would be a career-high. If he were to continue his blocked shots pace, he’d end up with 100. That’s a noticeable decrease from the 135 and 139 blocks he racked up in the previous two campaigns. It appears he’s focusing a little less on the defensive side and taking more chances offensively.



G Linus Ullmark, BUF (54%): You’ll likely have a tough time finding a quality goalie to stream with an ownership rate under 50%. The ones who have been good were stepping in while their team’s starters were out — which is no longer the case. So I’m going to recommend picking up Ullmark if you find him available. He’s won four of his last five starts and has taken away the starting role from Carter Hutton for now. Ride the hot hand for as long as he can keep that position.

Also, check out last week’s waiver wire picks to see if any of those players are still available.
