2022-23 Fantasy Hockey Week 19 Weekly Planner

Welcome to the 2022-23 Fantasy Hockey Week 19 Weekly Planner!

We are through the All-Star break, and teams are off and running in the second half of the season. The "Tank For Bedard" race may be more competitive than the Presidents' Trophy race, but both are going to be must-watch.

Week 19 has an action-packed slate of games, and it starts out with a playoff rematch that went seven games. The Rangers will take on the Hurricanes in Carolina, and these two teams never disappoint when up against each other. Meanwhile, the top team in the east will take on the best team in the west, with a meeting between the Bruins and Stars. This week is going to conclude with two teams tied for the last wildcard spot in the east when Pittsburgh travels to the island to meet up with the Islanders.

The playoffs will be here before we know it, so let's strap in for the second half! Let's jump into the 2022-23 Fantasy Hockey Week 19 Weekly Planner.

2022-23 Fantasy Hockey Week 19 Weekly Planner

February 11, 2022 - February 17, 2022

Top Targets

Vladimir Tarasenko, Right Wing, New York Rangers (87% Rostered)

The first domino has fallen ahead of the NHL Trade Deadline, as Vladimir Tarasenko was dealt to the New York Rangers on Thursday. Tarasenko is having a down year, and a move to New York may be all that he needs to reignite his play. Leaving St. Louis with 10 goals and 19 assists, we expect to see those numbers improve mightily with his new squad.

Tarasenko will likely play in the team's top six and might be getting the opportunity to play with his fellow Russian Artemi Panari as well as Mika Zibanejad. If you can find Vlad hanging around in free agency in your league, don't wait any longer and scoop him up!

Sam Bennett, Center, Florida Panthers (67% Rostered)

The Florida Panthers have come out of the All-Star break firing, and Sam Bennett has been a big contributor to this. Bennett registered a goal in the final game prior to the bye week and All-Star break. He then continued to put up a goal and two assists in his first game following the break.

Maybe a little rest was all Bennett needed! Look for him to continue to put up points alongside Carter Verhaeghe and All-Star Game MVP Matthew Tkachuk.

Daniel Vladar, Goalie, Calgary Flames (33% Rostered)

Heading into the 2022-2023 season, the Calgary Flames were one of the favorites to win the cup this summer. One person looking to turn things around for the Flames at this point in the season is Daniel Vladar. Starting out the season as the backup goalie behind Jacob Markstrom, Vladar has continued to outplay him and make a push for the starting job.

Daniel Vladar is currently rocking an 11-5-4 record for the Flames along with a .904 save percentage and 2.77 goals against average. Prior to Thursday's loss, Vladar was riding a five-game winning streak and outplaying Markstrom. If you are in need of a goalie that has everything clicking right now, Vladar is definitely your guy.

Ondrej Palat, Left Wing, New Jersey Devils (26% Rostered)

Another player that may be benefiting from a little rest is 31-year-old Ondrej Palat. The former Lightning forward missed two months of the NHL season with a groin injury and has come back to find the scoresheet like old times. Palat registered two assists in Thursday's game bringing him up to 12 points (six goals and six assists) through 19 games this season. Look to see if the veteran turns it up as the Devils push their way toward the playoffs.

Injury Alerts

Cale Makar, Defense, Colorado Avalanche

Tuesday night, Cale Makar was on the receiving end of a blindside hit and has been ruled out for the remainder of the Avalanche's current road trip. Makar took a hit to the head from Jeff Carter in Tuesday's game, and will now sit out for an indefinite amount of time. The team hopes to get Makar back in the lineup as quickly as they can, as he is the anchor that drives success from the defensive end.

Rasmus Andersson, Defense, Calgary Flames

The Calgary Flames may have recently concluded their bye week, but they will come back down their best defenseman. Wednesday night, Rasmus Andersson was involved in a car accident when his scooter was hit by a car while he was on the way to dinner. Andersson was taken to the hospital and underwent tests, and is considered day-to-day.

Jack Hughes, Center/Left Wing, New Jersey Devils

After registering two goals and an assist in his first game back from the All-Star Game, the Devils will be without Jack Hughes for the foreseeable future. Hughes was injured during Wednesday's practice and had to leave the ice early with an upper-body injury.

The Devils have labeled Hughes' injury as week-to-week, and have not put an estimated timeframe on the injury. The team's best player currently sits at 35 goals and 32 assists in 50 games this season.

Andre Burakovsky, Left Wing/Right Wing, Seattle Kraken

Andre Burakovsky has been placed on injured reserve following an injury that he suffered during the first shift of Tuesday's game. The team will now look to replace the 28-year-old's production on offense, as he has provided 39 points through 49 games so far this year.

Team Worth Watching This Week

Calgary Flames

The Flames are currently on the outside of the playoffs looking in, but this week's stretch of games may help them change their POV. All three teams they will take on this week have fewer points in the standings, so the Flames are our team to watch this week.

Starting off Week 19, the Flames will head to Buffalo to take on the Sabres on Saturday afternoon. The Sabres can score, but they struggle to play defense which may benefit a team like the Flames who have found the back of the net often lately. They conclude their road trip in Ottawa, which remains around .500 and seems to be stuck in no man's land. They hit home ice again to take on the Red Wings, concluding what should be a successful week for Calgary.

Keep an eye on the Flames this week, as this week may dictate whether they head into the trade deadline as buyers or sellers.

The first domino to fall was the Horvat trade, not Tarasenko.
