Dobber’s taking your fantasy hockey questions – here!!


Jarome Iginla just kept on rolling in Boston’s victory over Minnesota on Monday. He notched two goals for the second straight game and now has seven points in his last five contests. Iginla is catching fire at the perfect time for the Bruins, who could use his production in the playoffs to replace the strong post-season run Nathan Horton had last year. 

 

Reilly Smith had his first goal in 15 games Monday night. His ice-time has been way down this month. Even with the rough stretch, he’s had a solid season with the ability to help you in multiple categories. I’d definitely be hanging onto him in keeper situations.

Matt Moulson had a nice start to his career with the Minnesota Wild, but over his last four games he has been without a point and gone minus-2. Moulson has been playing with Mikko Koivu and what’s interesting is how it is impacting Charlie Coyle and Nino Niederreiter. They’ve combined for just a single point in the last five games and both were paired with Koivu before Moulson came over, but now they seem to be splitting time with the two. Coyle looks to be getting the most minutes with Koivu and Moulson right now, so if there’s a choice between the two, he might be your best bet. However, all four are in a serious funk at the moment.

Patrik Berglund didn’t pick up a point on Monday, but he’s been great since returning from Sochi. He was having a dreadful year but seemed to catch fire at the Olympics with Sweden. He had eight goals before the break and already has six since returning. 

 

Jay Bouwmeester busted out of an 11-game pointless drought with two assists against the Jets. He’s still been productive over that stretch going plus-10 and posting his share of shots. He’s going to be hard-pressed to hit 40 points on the season now though because of that slump. 

 

David Backes’ two goals give him four points in three games.

Al Montoya took the loss but looked sharp in goal for the Jets. With Ondrej Pavelec on the shelf, Montoya has a good chance to make a name for himself. 

 

Jacob Trouba has just one goal since mid-January, but he would be someone to watch out for next season. Trouba is still gettin
