This article is part of our NHL Waiver Wire series.
There are two weeks left in the season, and the NHL schedule is packed with games.
Being aggressive at this stage of the year can make a huge difference, and with plenty of playoff teams being cautious with injured players and eliminated clubs often turning to youngsters, there's sneaky upside on the waiver wire.
It's also the time of year when injured players are ruled out for the remainder of the season, so keeping an eye on depth chart promotions is important. Keeping tabs on starting goaltenders is also as critical as ever because there are often unexpected timeshares for various reasons.
Here's the schedule for the next scoring period from March 26-April 1:
Four games: Coyotes, Bruins, Hurricanes, Avalanche, Red Wings, Panthers, Predators, Devils, Islanders, Rangers, Senators, Penguins, Sharks, Lightning, Maple Leafs, Golden Knights, Capitals
All other teams play three games.
Remember to keep an eye on who is cut in your leagues because potential upgrades come in all forms. Also, note the players previously covered in this space listed below this week's recommendations.
Mika Zibanejad, NYR (Yahoo: 44%, ESPN: 71%, CBS: 68%): Currently scorching hot, Zibanejad has recorded six goals, three assists and 22 shots through his past five games. The Swede has flashed tremendous upside since entering the league, and he's positioned to succeed in a top offensive role. The Rangers have nothing to play for at this stage of the season, so their recent stretch of high-scoring games could easily continue.
