2023-24 Fantasy Hockey Week 21 Weekly Planner

The NHL action is heating up, and the Trade Deadline is right around the corner. The 2023-24 Fantasy Hockey Week 21 Weekly Planner is back and we can get into all of the latest action.

Offense is all anybody is talking about right now, whether it is because of the play of Auston Matthews or Nikita Kucherov. Wednesday, Matthews reached the 50-goal plateau in just the 54th game of the season which makes him the fastest American-born player to do so. Then Sunday, Kuch reached the 100-point mark (37 goals and 63 assists) for the fourth time in his career.

It isn't just the players, either! Did you see that 10-7 game last week? Minnesota and Vancouver were able to combine for 17 goals which has only happened three other times in the NHL since 2000.

What milestones are we going to see in the new week? Can a game top 17 goals? Who knows! Let's jump into the 2023-24 Fantasy Hockey Week 21 Weekly Planner and get our week started.

Top Targets

Joel Eriksson Ek, C, Minnesota Wild (91% Rostered)

Joel Eriksson Ek has been hot-hot-hot of late! The Swede is producing offense like crazy on his eight-game point streak racking up 15 points during the stretch.

The Minnesota Wild's season hasn't been as successful as people would've thought, but Eriksson Ek is doing his best to try and keep the team afloat. The point streak is supported by the point streak by his linemate Kirill Kaprizov, who is up to 18 points during the same eight-game stretch. The two have played exceptionally together and should continue through the rest of the season as long as they remain paired up.

Vincent Trocheck, C, New York Rangers (89% Rostered)

After originally being featured in the 2023-24 Fantasy Hockey Week 14 Weekly Planner, I wanted to make sure Vincent Trocheck is getting the credit he deserves! The 30-year-old is playing some of the best hockey of his career and is a key reason why the Rangers are riding a 10-game-winning streak. Through the 10 games, he has provided five goals and five assists.

It's also a five-game point streak for Trocheck (five goals and three assists) which makes him extremely valuable right now. His chemistry with Artemi Panerin also adds to his value, as the duo has been able to outscore opponents 36-29 when sharing the ice. The two of them have also registered 404 scoring chances for this season so they are consistently generating offense for the Metropolitan Division-leading New York Rangers.

Patrick Kane, RW, Detroit Red Wings (70% Rostered)

Did anybody see this kind of production out of Patrick Kane following his hip resurfacing procedure this summer? The future Hall of Famer is up to 26 points (11 goals and 15 assists) in just 34 games this season and may only be getting better.

There was a slight hiccup in Kane's season due to a seven-game stint on the injured reserve leading up to the All-Star Break. Since the absence, Kane is up to 10 points (four goals and six assists) over seven games played. It's been a lot of line shuffling in Detroit, but PK88 has found most of his success playing alongside Dylan Larkin and Alex DeBrincat of late. The trio is outscoring teams 10-5 when on the ice together, and out-chancing teams 81-69.

I was shocked to see Kane's rostered percentage across fantasy sites right now! Do yourself a favor and find a spot for Patrick Kane on your team.

Injury Alerts

Matthew Tkachuk, LW/RW, Florida Panthers

Thursday was not a good day for the Florida Panthers. Not only were they shut out by the Carolina Hurricanes, but Matthew Tkachuk was unable to finish the game due to injury. It's too early for an update from the Panthers on the extent of the injury, but you know it must be a tough injury to keep a player like Tkachuk out of action.

A six-game, 14-point streak came to an end on Thursday with Tkachuk only playing 5:39 before exiting the game. He'll hopefully be able to restart a new streak soon, especially with the team playing as well as they are. It's to be determined when he'll be back so be sure you are keeping an eye on updates!

Mark Stone, RW, Vegas Golden Knights

Mark Stone has had an extensive list of injuries throughout his career and looks to have sustained another one. This time, the 31-year-old suffered an upper-body injury on Tuesday night against Nashville.

The organization announced Stone as 'week to week' with no set timetable on when they can expect him back. His 53 points (16 goals and 37 assists) in 56 games lead the Knights through this point in the season and will need to find a strong replacement for Stone in the lineup. They sit 10 points back of Vancouver in the Pacific Division with Edmonton and Los Angeles close on their heels.

Hampus Lindholm, D, Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins have placed Hampus Lindholm on injured reserve on Thursday. With the IR placement, he will not be available for the next four games and won't accompany the team on the West Coast road trip.

Lindholm hasn't been able to match production this year to last season but remains a very important part of the Bruins' core. At this point, he is second on the team in TOI/GP and second in points among team defensemen. The 30-year-old will be an important piece of the Bruins playoff push, so the team will need him back as soon as possible.

Team Worth Watching This Week

Washington Capitals

A four-game stretch of winnable games is what the Washington Capitals need to keep pace in the Metropolitan Division and Eastern Conference Wild Card. That's just what they will have this week.

After a slow start to his season (by his standards), Alex Ovechkin is looking like himself again as he's reclaimed the Capitals lead in points. He is up to 16 goals (eight in his last 10 games) and can hopefully keep this pace up throughout the rest of the season. Dylan Strome and Anthony Mantha have also produced offensively at a solid rate to help towards the team's success.

It's also been a strong resurgence on the backend from John Carlson, who missed most of last season with a fractured skull. The 34-year-old is up to 32 points (three goals and 29 assists) through 56 games this season which is incredible given where he was last season. The veteran defenseman should continue his strong offensive season. So be sure that you are looking for his name in your fantasy league to see if he's a free agent!

Charlie Lindgren has also made the team's job a little easier of late, as he has come up in some big spots. He has become a strong fantasy candidate given his increased workload (eight starts over the last 11 games). The Capitals rank 12th in shots allowed per game (30.7 shots) and Lindgren's 2.64 GAA and .914 SV% are extremely impressive so far.
