Free chance to win $50 in cash & a $50 Amazon gift card- KK Fantasy Hockey Challenge

note, original post time was 3/21/13 at 10:00am: just moving this up to the top of page so everyone has a chance to participate and win, including a $50 Amazon gift card.

Well my first attempt to beat all of you last week in the KK Fantasy Hockey Challenge did not go so well, I finished in the middle of the pack, but Saturday is another day.

I really enjoyed playing in the challenge.  It was my first time playing in a game like this and found it fun to follow along as my team was playing.  The almost instant updates of scoring is a great feature and soon I was comparing my score against all the others who were playing.  If I wasn't doing what I do, I would be participating on a nightly basis.  Oh, one more thing, I won't be drafting Mike Ribeiro again, enough said.

Jacob Markstrom Now The Man In Florida

from Justin Goldman at NHL.com,

With Justin Peters and Keith Kinkaid making their season debuts Tuesday night, 15 teams have now used at least three goalies this season. Of those 16 goalies (Calgary has used two), we're sounding the fantasy alarm on one we feel is primed to have a breakout in the second half of the season.

Jacob Markstrom is just one piece of a large shipment of AHL players currently in the Panthers' lineup. But due to the inconsistency of Scott Clemmensen and the possible season-ending injury to Jose Theodore, he not only has a chance to play the majority of the minutes, but to carry the entire team.

During Tuesday night's 4-1 win against Winnipeg, Markstrom, who was the game's second star after stopping 30 of 31 shots, was owned in just 15 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy leagues. As of Thursday morning, he was owned in only 20 percent of leagues.

Whether you're dangerously thin in goal due to injuries, or you just want to bolster your depth in the second half, we suggest you get him while the getting's good. In three games this season, he has a 2.36 goals-against average and .931 save percentage, stopping 95 of 102 shots.

50 NHL Fantasy Predictions

from Matt Cubeta of NHL.com,

1. Last year I said Datsyuk would reach 100 points. This year I'm saying he won't top 40 points -- 40 points in 48 games is a rate of .83 points-per-game, which would've tied him for 44th in the NHL last season. Between his declining stats, potential for injury and his lack of shots and PIMs, he might not be worth an early draft pick this year. He's also typically a slow starter, and with the condensed season, it could benefit you to pass on him.

2. While Jamie Benn is still waiting on a contract with the Stars, I believe he'll finish as a top-10 fantasy player. With veteran playmakers Jaromir Jagr, Derek Roy and Ray Whitney joining an improved Dallas team, Benn will become elite this year (I truly believe there's a chance he could be a top-5 fantasy player). He has the tools to contribute in all categories.

Think Young For NHL Fantasy Hockey

from Matt Sitkoff at NHL.com,

With the impending start of the NHL season, fantasy hockey drafts are going to come fast and furious so it's time to get reacquainted with some names that should be all over your radar. Here's a look at some of the important young players that will be available and what they did during the lockout in North American leagues ahead of the upcoming NHL fantasy season.

Immediate Impact

During the lockout we have already potential Calder Trophy candidates make names for themselves, but don't forget the following names when drafting during a shortened season. The young legs of the following players could be the difference for your team.

Justin Schultz (Edmonton, D) -- You can argue no one benefited more from the lockout than Schultz, who established himself as a legitimate scoring threat from the blue line in the AHL with 18 goals and 48 points in 34 games played. Considering during the 2011-12 season the NHL saw only one defender score more than 55 points (Erik Karlsson, 78 pts), it is enticing to feature Schultz as your top blueliner.
