Pick Six: Thursday March 15/Friday March 16

Star players returning from injury should provide an added boost to playoff-bound fantasy teams. We all know of one particular notable player who will be returning on Thursday, but there are more names that you need to be aware of, especially if you’ve been stashing players on IR. To accommodate those players, picks for both Thursday and Friday are included. With the Wednesday news of one more player making an earlier-than-expected return, I’ll be breaking the rules a little by making this article a Pick Six plus one.

Pick Six: Thursday October 6

It’s officially go time in fantasy hockey leagues, which means it’s time for our first Pick Six of the season. A new feature at Kukla’s Korner, the Pick Six will list six players of interest that you should know about as you set your fantasy lineup. Players listed will be worth a start or a sit because of hot/cold play, injuries, matchups, favorable line combinations, or just because they are in the news for whatever reason. But more than anything else, I will provide a fantasy hockey take on whatever I write, which I hope will make this article both interesting and informative.

Drum roll, please… my Pick Six for Thursday will include one player from each of the teams in action on Opening Night.

Bring on the Busts

The players that I’ve listed as busts aren’t necessarily players you shouldn’t draft (okay, but some of them are). These players are mainly the type that are on the downside of their career, or are players that won’t perform at the level at which they are likely to be drafted this season. Injuries are a risk that any NHL player faces, but fantasy hockey veterans will know by now that some players seem to spend more time on IR than on active rosters (sadly, I forgot to include Rick DiPietro on my list). Whatever the reason, these are players that you should exercise caution before drafting this season.
