Fantasy Hockey: Players to Watch (Week of April 23)

Logan Thompson, Vegas Golden Knights

Even though there are conflicting reports about Robin Lehner’s injury status – is there any team that looks more dysfunctional than the Knights right now? – it’s abundantly clear that Lehner cannot be a reliable No. 1 option right now. Fantasy managers who were patient and stuck with Thompson are now going to see the dividends since he will be their starter going forward. He’s come a long way as an undrafted free agent signing who worked his way up from Canada’s U Sports to the ECHL, AHL and now the NHL, and while his season numbers – 9-5-0/.920/2.56 – are very solid, it’s still a lot to ask and the team in front of him looks vulnerable than ever. Thompson should be a mid to upper tier goalie the rest of the fantasy season.
