Dec. 2-8

Great Options

Connor HellebuyckWinnipeg Jets

Schedule: Tue vs. DAL, Thu at DAL, Sun vs. ANA

Hellebuyck comes into this weekend riding a three-game winning streak and he’s given up just one goal during that three-game stretch. The two matchups against the Stars will be challenging, but the Jets netminder will be a good fantasy option.

Tuukka RaskBoston Bruins

Schedule: Tue vs. CAR, Thu vs. CHI, Sat vs. COL

Rask has won each of his last five games and he and his team have been rolling all season. He owns a 12-2-2 record with a 2.10 goals-against-average and a .931 save percentage this season. The Bruins will spend the whole week at home.

Andrei VasilevskiyTampa Bay Lightning

Schedule: Tue at NSH, Thu vs. MIN, Sat vs. SJ

Vasilevskiy hasn’t been as dominant as he has been in previous seasons, but he should figure it out soon enough. He’s dropped back-to-back games and he’s given up eight goals during this small stretch. His fantasy stock should rise over the next week.

Good Options

Petr MrazekCarolina Hurricanes

Schedule: Tue at BOS, Thu vs. SJ, Sat vs. MIN

Mrazek has dropped three of his last four games, but the schedule sets up nicely for him next week. The matchup in Boston will be tough, but home dates against San Jose and Minnesota are plus matchups.

Jordan Binnington – St. Louis Blues

Schedule: Mon at CHI, Wed at PIT, Sat vs. TOR

The defending champs won’t have it easy next week, but Binnington should be able to keep them afloat. The 26-year-old has 12-4-4 record with a 2.27 goals-against-average and a .925 save percentage this season.

David RittichCalgary Flames

Schedule: Thu vs. BUF, Sat vs. LAK

Rittich needs to play both games next week to be relevant in fantasy, which should happen considering they’ll have four days between games. The Flames goalie has gone 2-0-1 in his last three outings and he’ll get to play two bad teams.

Sergei BobrovskyFlorida Panthers

Schedule: Tue vs. MIN, Sat vs. CBJ, Sun vs. SJ

Bobrovsky’s tenure with the Panthers hasn’t been as good as his fantasy owners had hoped, but there’s still time for him to get his season on the rails. The 31-year-old has a 9-6-4 record with a 3.48 goals-against-average and a .885 save percentage this season. Expect him to start two of his team’s next three games.

Bad Options

Jonathan Quick – Los Angeles Kings

Schedule: Mon at ANA, Wed vs. WSH, Fri at EDM, Sat at CGY

Quick and the Kings are in the middle of a rebuild, reset or re-tool, so he won’t be relevant in fantasy leagues too often this year. He has a 7-10-1 record with a 3.36 goals-against-average and a .882 save percentage this season.

Carey PriceMontreal Canadiens

Schedule: Tue vs. NYI, Thu vs. COL, Fri at NYR

The Canadiens are heading into this weekend riding a six-game losing streak. That’s not all on Price’s shoulders, but he just doesn’t look right between the pipes right now. The Habs have a tough schedule coming up and getting out of this funk won’t be easy.
