Although Elan’s wish for no injuries didn’t come true, our wish for plenty of fantasy news to discuss and analyze on the 51st episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast has graciously been granted.
About those injuries– we’ve got freshly opened spots on depth charts all across the league, including starting goalies in New York and Ottawa, a 3rd-liner in Winnipeg, a power-play quarterback in St. Louis, and a top-six forward in Nashville.
Another recurring theme over the last couple months also shows up again in this week’s gamelogs: unlikely players getting substantial looks on their team’s top lines. Elan and Brian break down recent minute and opportunity increases for players in Boston, Pittsburgh, Long Island, Anaheim, and Montreal.
The show wraps up with a classic segment featuring Players of Note, including Yet Another Panther, a mostly forgotten Star, and a couple d-men continuing to make their names and reassure doubters.
