Fantasy Watch: Top Performers of the Week

Stats from October 15th-22nd

F Jason Williams, Chicago Blackhawks
2 G, 4 A

Williams is currently riding a four game point streak scoring seven points over that span. His highest output came on Saturday, where the forward scored one goal and assisted on three others, leading Chicago past Toronto. Williams has been extremely successful on the powerplay, and should continue to receive several minutes on the top unit.

F Rich Nash, Columbus Blue Jackets
3 G, 2 A

The former first overall pick suffered an off year last season but has rebounded quite nicely, scoring nine points in his first seven games. Finally getting help from some of his teammates, Nash may be in for a career year.

F Patrick Kane, Chicago Blackhawks
1G, 4 A, +1

This year's first overall pick has gotten off to a strong start, scoring five points in his last two games. Kane has meshed well with forward Jonathan Toews, as the two have lead Chicago to a 5-3 record. Those who nabbed Kane with a late pick in their fantasy drafts should reap in the benefits, as Kane may reach 60 points this year.

F Jarome Iginla, Calgary Flames
3 G, 5 A +3

Iginla has been on fire over his past five games, scoring five goals and six assists. Iggy has shown no signs of slowing down and will most likely be among the leaders for most points come season's end.

D Chris Campoli, New York Islanders
5 A, -2

Campoli had a career night this past week, assisting on four Islanders goals. On the year, the defenseman has scored two goals and dished out seven helpers. Only in his third season as a pro, Campoli has proved to be a great offensive defenseman, and should continue to pick up points on the power play.

G Martin Biron, Philadelphia Flyers
3 W, 2 SO,

Biron has been everything Philadelphia has hoped for, winning six of his first seven games, while compiling a goals against average of 1.57. He has posted two shutouts this past week, propelling the Flyers into first place in the Atlantic Conference.
