Slava Voynov has been playing some major minutes for the Kings as his stock continues to rise.
Analysis: Voynov is plus-7 this year on a team with a negative six goal differential. To put Voynov’s plus-7 rating in perspective, Drew Doughty is minus-10 this year. Not only is Slava’s plus/minus a strength so are other areas of his fantasy game. He’s receiving about 26 minutes of ice time over his last four games while his seasonal average is a solid 21 minutes per game. Voynov’s success should not come as a surprise, he posted a plus-12 and 20 points last year in limited ice time and in just 52 games.
This year Voynov has a very respectable 6 points in 11 games played. He is getting secondary power play minutes but he’s not going to put up tons of points. The only areas he can hurt you is penalty minutes and power play points but outside of those areas he’s fine. Voynov is not just a deep league add, he’s a twenty-three year old coming into form on a team that really needs him at the moment. He’s available in 40-50% of fantasy leagues nationwide.
