Minnesota defenseman Marek Zidlicky may not be on the Wild’s first power play unit for the time being but that doesn’t mean he isn’t valuable.
Analysis: Zidlicky’s play this year has been rather pedestrian, however, you just cannot deny what he has done over the years. He would have four straight forty plus point seasons had he not missed significant time last year. As far as under the radar offensive defenseman go… Marek Zidlicky is right up there. His case is not an unusual one, he is on a prolonged cold streak and typical fantasy owners lack the patience to keep him. Zidlicky is available in just over thirty percent of fantasy leagues nationwide and if he is on the wire in your league then he is a must add. He’s still getting a team high twenty-three minutes of ice time per game and despite just two points on the year… he still leads all Minnesota defensemen in points.
Whatever way you slice it, Zidlicky is still a viable option in all fantasy leagues. He’ll put up numbers, he’s just too talented of a player not to.
