NHL Waiver Wire Adds: 11/20 to 11/26

As I analyze the available players for your team, I will pay close attention to those who have potentially been promoted in the lineup, either due to their excellent performance or because of a teammate's injury.

Additionally, I will consider players who have an advantageous schedule this week, meaning they are facing weaker opponents or playing in favorable conditions. Lastly, I will keep an eye out for players who could be receiving a boost from an injury, whether it's their own or their teammates, as this could increase their playing time and overall performance.

DISCLOSURE: Make sure to monitor the NHL news feeds for the latest player status and injury news.


NHL Waiver Wire Goalies

Charlie Lindgren

Opponents this week - Buffalo, Edmonton 

Lindgren, who is only rostered in 8.3% of ESPN leagues, could be a sneaky pickup for your team. After losing his first start of the season, he has won four starts in a row, including two this past week, in impressive fashion. While Keumper is currently the "starter" on the team, I believe the Caps will ride the hot hand as they want to get back to the playoffs this season, especially with Ovi in the twilight of his career. Lindgren makes for a great spot starter on your team and a possible full-time starter if Keumper were ever to get hurt.

 Other options

  • John Gibson- 28.6% rostered ESPN


NHL Waiver Wire Forwards

Nazem Kadri

Opponents - Seattle, Nashville, Dallas, Colorado

Kadri is currently rostered on 16.9% of ESPN leagues.

One of the reasons I am listing Kadri here is his great chemistry with his teammates, Zary and Popisil. Together, they have been able to create numerous scoring opportunities and are going to have a big game soon, If you're in need of a fill-in for this week due to injuries or other reasons, Kadri could be an excellent choice. The Flames have four games scheduled this week, which means more opportunities for Kadri to make an impact.

But that's not the only reason why Kadri is a great option. He has been taking a lot of shots this season, with a total of 54 shots so far. Despite this, he has only scored three goals and has eight assists, which is below his usual pace. This suggests that Kadri is due for a breakout game soon, and it could be a great opportunity to cash in on his potential.

Nazem Kadri seems to be rejuvenated since being put on a line with 2 rookies.

Other options

  • Adam Fantilli- 39.5% rostered ESPN



NHL Waiver Wire Defensemen

Rako Gudas

Opponents - Montreal, L.A Kings, Edmonton Oilers

Radko Gudas is a highly versatile player who can add value to any fantasy hockey team. He is currently rostered on 48% of ESPN teams and has been a consistent performer throughout the season. Gudas is known for his ability to fill multiple statistical categories and can be relied upon to contribute on any given night.

He has been averaging more than six combined shots, hits, and blocks per game, making him a valuable asset in leagues that count these stats. On top of that, Gudas has also been able to get involved in the scoring department with three goals and three assists so far this season.

Gudas' value is not just limited to his stats, however. He is also known for his physicality and aggressive style of play, which can help him accumulate penalty minutes. This makes him an even more valuable addition to teams that count in this category.

If your fantasy team is dealing with injuries or has a weak defense, Gudas is worth a look. He is a consistent performer who can provide a boost in multiple categories and is a reliable player to have on your roster.

  • Sean Walker- 9.3% rostered ESPN
