Fantasy All-Access: Quarter-mark bold predictions

Matt Sitkoff - NHL.com Contributor

The NHL has season has reached the first-quarter mark and that is a perfect time to make some bold fantasy predictions for what will we see for the rest of the fantasy season:

Edmonton Oilers forward Taylor Hall will be a top-20 fantasy player. The first pick of the 2010 NHL Draft missed seven games due to a knee injury but is back and producing even with the struggling offense around him. The Oilers have 14 of their next 19 games at home so you can expect Hall and the Oilers to break out of their offensive slump and Hall to move up the rankings.

The San Jose Sharks' Antti Niemi will be the first goalie to start 75-plus games in a season since Martin Brodeur in 2009-10. The Finnish netminder has started 18 of the Sharks' first 21 games, and with only eight back-to-backs on the schedule for the rest of the season, look for Niemi to get into the net and carry Fantasy teams for the entire season.

Last season went about as well as possible for Union College defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere.

It started not long after he was picked by the Philadelphia Flyers in the third round of the 2012 NHL Draft (No. 78). He won a gold medal with the United States at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship, and had eight goals and 18 assists in 36 games as Union won a second consecutive ECAC title and advanced to the NCAA East Regional final. Gostisbehere was named to the NCAA East Second All-American Team.

While the history major appreciates where he's been, the junior is focused solely on the present. And that present has looked about as successful as his past.

Monday, 11.18.2013 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider


Things haven't gone well recently for the Anaheim Ducks and Pittsburgh Penguins. Something's got to give when they face each other Monday (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, RDS, TSN2).

Anaheim, which is winless in its past three games (0-2-1), concludes a four-game road trip at Consol Energy Center against the Penguins, who have lost four of their past five games.

"At the end of the day you've got to score, but if you're getting chances, I mean, I don't know what you really change," Penguins captain Sidney Crosby said after the team's 4-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Saturday. "You try to go to the net just as much, work on those little things like stop at the net, get a screen, competing down at those areas. But ultimately it's a matter of putting it in when you get a chance."

Here's a closer look at the action Monday:

Aaron Vickers - NHL.com Correspondent

CALGARY -- They're both hailed as cornerstones of the Calgary Flames' future, but the trajectories for first-round picks Sven Baertschi and Sean Monahan couldn't be more different.

Baertschi and Monahan are finding the NHL's rigors to be a grind, but each is navigating through his rookie season as best he can.

"I've learned a lot," said the 19-year-old Monahan, who has now played 20 games. "Coming to the rink with NHL players, you learn something new every day. You've just got to soak up any information you get. The little details in this League are the biggest thing, and that's something I'm really paying attention to."
