His goal brought the Jets to within one of the Capitals, but it was too little, too late for the Jets, who were the victims as Washington clinched the Southeast Division. With Kyle Wellwood (hand) out for the rest of the season, Nik Antropov will see plenty of ice in the team's finale this Thursday. Before being hurt, Antropov had collected just two points in his previous 10 games. As such, he may not be worth gambling on as the fantasy season ends, unless you're looking to have as many players play as possible. (Updated 4/23/13).
Nik Antropov strung together some impressive hot streaks in 2011-2012, proving that the 12-year veteran still has some hockey left in him, notching 35 points last season in 69 games. Though he will likely not approach the offensive output he totaled in 2009-2010 again in his career, fantasy owners who don't mind rolling the dice on No. 80's hip flexor (he missed the World Championships in favor of letting the injury heal in time for 2012-2013) could score some late-round value by drafting the 32 year-old.
