Deep League Help- Jiri Tlusty

Cane’s forward Jiri Tlusty is having his best professional season to date. Tlusty’s last two weeks have been especially impressive.

Analysis: Jiri Tlusty has amassed three goals, five assists and is a plus seven in his last eight games. This is definitely the best stretch of Tlusty’s young career. He was once considered a bust in Toronto and with good reason, Tlusty only scored twenty points in seventy-four games with the Leafs. He is a former top fifteen pick and he has finally put it all together.

Jiri is available in over eighty percent of fantasy leagues. Tlusty’s ice time has been a major factor, he’s averaging eighteen minutes of ice time over the past two weeks. He’s been getting some time on the power play and his shots on goal have been consistent and solid. His numbers will take a hit when his play comes down to reality but he still makes a solid deep league add. His only fantasy weakness is his penalty minutes and most owners can look past that. The Canes don’t have much depth at forward so expect Tlusty’s minutes to remain relatively high for the duration of the season.
