We have 19 games down and 701 left to go in our fantasy hockey season and hopefully you are off to a good start. If not, then let us here at NHL Fantasy guide you back on track.
The first weekend of NHL hockey, we saw some New Faces in New Places have early success. In fact, there were 18 goals by players playing with new teams or rookies playing in their first weekend of action, and with that the hashtag #NewFacesinNewPlacesGoalCount was born.
The Florida Panthers and Dallas Stars had two of the biggest impacts from their offseason additions. Florida saw instant chemistry from Jonathan Huberdeau (19 years, 7 months) and Alex Kovalev (39 years, 10 months old) as they combined for six points in their first game together. Fantasy owners are hoping they have instant chemistry like Claude Giroux and Jaromir Jagr had last season.
Speaking of the 40-year-old Jagr, he also had a dazzling debut with the Stars on Saturday, recording two goals and two assists, and will still be a factor in fantasy once again this season.
