The 2019-20 NHL season is fast approaching and with it comes the excitement (and stress) of fantasy hockey. Drafts will be kicking off soon and The Hockey Writers has you covered.
Our group of talented writers are taking a big leap in fantasy hockey this season, looking at who you should draft, what players can succeed on new teams, some top players and much, much more. As your draft gets closer, make The Hockey Writers your stop for all things fantasy hockey.
To make it easier for you to navigate our fantasy content, we’ve compiled everything together here for you as your one-stop-shop. This page will be updated daily throughout September as we help you get ready for draft day and puck drop. The countdown is on.
On top of the content below, we’ll be publishing weekly content throughout the season to keep your fantasy team the best it can be. This will include Who to Add, Who to Drop, Matchups to Exploit, Sit/Start, Fantasy Fix, DFS, Fantasy Faceoff, and no fantasy content is complete without a weekly Mailbag!
If there’s anything else you’d like to see from us, or any fantasy questions you have before the season starts, leave a comment below!
