Fantasy Focus: Mining the waiver wire on March 21

We are entirely into the fun part of the season now. The trade deadline is just a few short hours away, and even though these aren’t the trade deadlines of our youth where a star player or five would get moved like clockwork, it should still elicit some action that could affect the fantasy hockey landscape.

Meanwhile, most of your leagues are already in the thick of the postseason. That makes finding impactful talent off of the waiver wire even more crucial at this juncture. As always, I’ll offer up a handful of undervalued and under-rostered players in Fantrax leagues who are situated for a potential bump in the days ahead. 

I won’t dive into the deals that have occurred much in this piece. But keep an eye out for a trade deadline postmortem coming out Tuesday, March 22nd. 

This week’s schedule is looking very favourable for the Colorado Avalanche, Minnesota Wild, Winnipeg Jets, and Pittsburgh Penguins. But there are some sneaky additions from outside of those locales as well. And so, without further ado, let’s go mine that waiver wire!
