    Default Steve Oleksy

    A nice story! ECHL journeyman defenseman whom is 27 years old and never scored more then 10 points in his college career, has never shown any real offensive ability now has a goal and 3 assists in just his 4th NHL game. Making the most of his the most of his opportunity I would say. Holds 0 value fantasy wise but good on him all the same. Made me look him up.

    He could have roto league value. I don't think the offensive numbers can be sustained but he could be one of those players who thrive in the NHL around better talent. There is definitely a spot for 10-20 point dmen that get a lot of PIM, hits and blocks.

    Yeah in points-only there are probably a couple dozen players available who have an actual offensive game.

    Caught a bt of the game and heard "It's 1-1 at the first intermission with a goal by Oleksey" and I was thinking... "Alexei who?" haha

    I know Green being out has opened up some spots on D, but it seems that while this guy is doing some scoring from my research he hasn't even stepped on the PP yet. They seem to also be limiting his time a bit on regular play. Tomas Kundratek seems to be benefitting quite nicely though with about 20+ minutes a game and even slotting in on the pp. Which one of these guys has higher upside? I've never heard of either of them until this year.

    I would say Kundratek has way more upside as an offensive player.

    I thought it might be useful to revisit Oleksy after he's played a few more games and look at his stats (I grabbed him in my roto league a couple of weeks ago and have been following him closely).

    12GP: 1G, 5A, +4, 20PIM, 31Hits, 25BS

    Prorated over 82 (yeah, BIG question mark whether the pace is sustainable but still interesting to see. He is getting lots of playing time still.)

    7G, 34A, +27, 137PIM, 212Hits, 171BS

    Multi-cat beasty numbers, aren't they? VERY unlikely he'll produce such offensive numbers over 82 games but you gotta think he's worth taking a flier for the peripherals alone.

    Oh and for those in salary cap leagues, he's dirt cheap for this and next 2 years.

    Great post Vega. He seems to be definitely worth apick up in roto leagues. I still don't see him continueing to put up points but the periferals should stay nice and Washinton had benn much improved since his arrival so he should stick around.
