Out of the depths of the Pacific Northwest, a new NHL power will rise. Its tentacles will reach into fantasy hockey leagues, providing more players, more counting stats and, thus, more options for fantasy managers.

Fantasy Hockey Lookahead: Targeting Week 16 championship streamers

We’ve reached the finish line. It’s been a very unique year for fantasy, so if you’ve made it this far, hats off to you. It hasn’t been easy. While most head-to-head leagues have already handed out the hardware, the rest are deciding their champion this week.

Fantasy Hockey Lookahead: Week 12 risers, fallers

In most leagues they could begin as early as next week, with some leagues starting the week after in Week 14. Now more than ever, we should be analyzing the schedules for not only the week we’re in, but the weeks to come.

Morning Coffee: Campbell is a must-own in fantasy hockey leagues

Earlier this week, TSN Hockey analyst Mike Johnson recommended fantasy hockey managers pick up Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Jack Campbell as an underrated option who could provide a spark both in the short and long term. Hopefully you listened to him.

Fantasy Hockey Lookahead: Week 7 risers, fallers

The first six weeks of the fantasy hockey season are in the books, meaning that most leagues have reached the halfway point of the regular season. It’s been an odd year, and we’ve all had to adapt in one way or another. One thing that remains constant is the necessity to narrow in on the schedule each week and take advantage of this year’s unique setup.

Fantasy Hockey Lookahead: Week 6 schedule, risers and fallers

After weeks of COVID-related postponements to deal with, fantasy owners were thrown for a loop by delays caused by the weather in Week 5. Those games will be made up this week, meaning Week 6 brings with it some additional challenges.

Fantasy Hockey Lookahead: Week 5 schedule, risers and fallers

As of Monday morning, only one game has been postponed for the upcoming Week 5, with the New Jersey Devils and Boston Bruins no longer playing on Monday. That means the rest of the teams could enjoy a full slate of games, and fantasy owners can enjoy a healthy amount of man games for the first time in weeks.

Roslovic a strong option to target in the fantasy trade market

On Jan. 23, the Columbus Blue Jackets and Winnipeg Jets engineered a whopper of an in-season trade. The Blue Jackets sent Pierre-Luc Dubois to Winnipeg in exchange for Jack Roslovic and Patrik Laine, resolving issues within the respective teams of disenchanted players looking for a fresh start elsewhere.

Yost’s Posts: What should fantasy hockey managers do with Zibanejad?

What should I do with New York Rangers centre Mika Zibanejad? It’s one of the most common questions I’ve received over the first few weeks of the 2020-21 NHL regular season – a question proffered by many fantasy hockey owners who are concerned about Zibanejad’s lack of production.
