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: Saturday March 10/Sunday March 11

Is a Sidney Crosby return finally around the corner? Perhaps, but one player who has nearly the pedigree of Crosby has his own concussion issues, but is not receiving the attention that Sid the Kid is. I’ve included both players in my Pick Six for the weekend.

But first, here’s what you need to know heading into the weekend.

A total of 22 teams are in action on Saturday, while 16 teams are in action on Sunday.

Teams with two weekend games: Boston, Columbus, Carolina, New Jersey, NY Islanders, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Toronto, Washington

Teams with no weekend games: Winnipeg

All other teams play one game either on Saturday or Sunday.

Fantasy Hockey/Kukla’s Korner League Midterm Report

Let’s study the secrets of the success of… a third-place team.

Okay, so it’s not first place. But it is a 16-team league. And a team that has rattled off ten consecutive wins in head-to-head league competition, following three consecutive losses to start the season.

There is probably no better time than the All-Star break to assess the situation of your fantasy team. That is what I intend to do while I provide my midterm report for the fantasyhockey.com/Kukla’s Korner League midterm results.

Fantasy Hockey Mailbag

So how does the health of Sidney Crosby affect his fantasy value this season? What about for future seasons? I answer a question from a reader who was recently offered Sid the Kid in a keeper league trade, which I believe that he would be better off not making if he wants to win his league this season.

Pick Six: Wednesday November 23

As we near American Thanksgiving, we hockey fans have a lot to be thankful for. In particular, we need to be grateful for the return of one Sidney Crosby, the NHL’s marquee player. (Hopefully you’re not an Islanders fan – all of North America just got to see how lousy your team is.) So it should be no surprise that the most intriguing of Wednesday’s 13 games will be the St. Louis/Pittsburgh matchup, a game that many hockey fans will be checking to see how many points Crosby scored.

With all but four teams (Edmonton, Ottawa, Tampa Bay, Toronto) in action on Wednesday, hockey fans will have a large spread of games to choose from.  The same cannot be said for Thursday, a day in which the NHL will not play any games in an attempt to not compete with the NFL, which has cornered the market on Thanksgiving sports action.

And remember, I’m Canadian, so no turkey for me on Thursday. It’s a normal work day for me.

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.
