Quick quip: Don’t sleep on Filip Hronek in fantasy hockey leagues

Very briefly on a late Friday night/early Saturday morning in July:

NHL.com’s Rob Reese penned a list of “fantasy (hockey) deep sleeper candidates for 2019-2020,” and Filip Hronek counts as a deep sleeper:

Filip Hronek, D, DET
NHL.com rank: 188

The Detroit Red Wings defenseman led the position with 11 points (three goals, eight assists) in 10 games with Czech Republic at the World Championship and could be a fixture on Detroit’s top power play next season. Hronek was a part of the Red Wings’ strong finish to the season, scoring seven points (two goals, five assists), two on the power play, over the final six games. With Mantha, Hronek, Larkin, Tyler Bertuzzi, Andreas Athanasiou, Mike Green and Jimmy Howard all ranked in NHL.com’s top 250, the Red Wings are a potentially overlooked team that can pay fantasy dividends.

Continued, and I hate to admit it, but I’m a horrible fantasy hockey player. I will pick my favorite players and play them to death.
