With fantasy hockey playoffs slowly coming to an end, the waiver wire becomes even more important. It’s taken weeks for us to get here, and now it’s time to finish the job. Injuries at this time of the year can cripple a fantasy team, but if you look for value on the waiver wire, you can survive the loss and still make a push for the championship. With that, let’s take a look at which players you should be looking to add this week off the waiver wire.

Derek Stepan - Arizona Coyotes - Center


The Arizona are still in the hunt for a playoff spot, and with the Derek Stepan back from injury, they are going to leave it all out on the ice next week. The veteran forward is going to be counted on to help produce offensively, which is good new for fantasy hockey owners. Stepan hasn’t hard a great season based on his stats, but for fantasy owners who need a depth forward heading into the next round, he’s certainly worth the risk.

Gustav Nyquist - San Jose Sharks - Winger
