NHL Waiver Wire Picks for Week 24

Updated: Nov 5, 2022

Fantasy hockey fans are paying more attention to a player who is one of the NHL's most underrated players. Even though he might not be the first person you think of for your lineup, he is a very reliable player. If you need a player who can score, you should pick him in the top 10 of any league.

You can't go wrong when you have a skilled player like William Karlsson. The veteran still makes money on the scoreline and is a good player to buy low on. Vasili Podkolzin, who came from the KHL, is also a good choice. His plus-minus is great, and he's a good choice if you don't have enough wingers.

Defenseman Jesse Puljujarvi is another top player on the waiver wire. He is a good pick-up for a league with a strong defense. He could do well on the first line as a little Tom Wilson. Right now, he's just clearing the way for Matthews and Marner, but he has a lot of fantasy potential if he can keep doing that.

Carl Soderberg, a forward for the Boston Bruins, is another good player to get off the waiver wire. He is a good source of shots and points and is in about two-thirds of ESPN leagues. He did well in the first half of the season, and in the last six games, he has scored three goals. He also plays on the power play more than many owners realize, so he should keep getting more chances to score.

Late in March, the top 10 waiver wire picks for fantasy hockey include several players who may be forgotten or cut. But most of these players have higher ceilings than other players. Besides Alex Iafallo, another great player to look for on the waiver wire is Matt Boldy. He could change the season for your team just like Alex Iafallo did. He might even be in the running for the Calder Trophy.

There are a lot of different defensemen you can look for on the waiver wire if you need them. The Blues have a good depth chart with players like Justin Faulk and Alex Iafallo. Even though their numbers haven't been great this season, they are good choices for teams that need more depth on the blue line. Also, even though neither of the two rookies is known for scoring goals, they both have good potential as mid-level players and can help in the defenseman and goal-scoring categories.

Jared McCann is another great bargain pick. As the Colorado Avalanche's best forward prospect, he played in the NCAA, the AHL, and the NHL last season. Because of how fast he is and how well he can handle the puck, he is a good choice for late-season, or early-season waiver adds.

The Flames of Calgary's Mikael Backlund has been bad in the past, but he has been improving lately. Even though the second-line center isn't scoring much, he gets time on the second power-play unit. Most of the time, he takes two or three shots and hits a few. Even though he isn't always good, he is now a good player off the bench and has a good schedule with games against Los Angeles, Arizona, and Edmonton.
