2023-24 Fantasy Hockey Week 22 Weekly Planner

We have finally arrived at my favorite part of the NHL season! The NHL Trade Deadline is upon us, and the 2023-24 Fantasy Hockey Week 22 Weekly Planner is back to get us there.

There are only a few more days for your favorite team to decide whether or not they are going to be buyers or if they are going to be sellers. Many contenders are pressed against the salary cap yet have some very glaring holes on the roster. Teams will need to be creative, but it could lead to an extremely interesting week.

Some players won't have to worry about being moved at all! We'll touch on some of these guys who are looking to build on their current situation and help their team push for the playoffs.

Let's get into the 2023-24 Fantasy Hockey Week 22 Weekly Planner, and get to some trades!

Top Targets

Jonathan Marchessault, RW, Vegas Golden Knights (88% Rostered)

Coming in hot on a 5-game point streak (four goals and five assists), Jonathan Marchessault is someone worth adding to your fantasy team right now. The leading goal scorer (32) and point scorer (53) for the defending Stanley Cup Champions is continuing to get it done this year.

And, given Vegas' unfortunate injury situation, he'll have heavy usage through the remainder of the season.

Marchessault will need to step up while the team is without the firepower of Jack Eichel and Mark Stone, who are both currently out with injuries. He'll likely be paired with Paul Cotter and longtime linemate William Karlsson. He is far too important to Vegas with the roster percentage he currently has!

Robert Thomas, C, St. Louis Blues (79% Rostered)

To the surprise of some, 24-year-old Robert Thomas currently leads the St. Louis Blues in points (20 goals and 49 assists). It's the second of many times that he's reached the 20-goal plateau in his young career and he's truly shown that he is a star in this league.

Thomas enters the new week on a subtle three-game point streak (one goal and three assists), but 16 points (three goals and 13 assists) over his last 10 games played. He's been able to take over the game for St. Louis along with his linemates Jordan Kyrou and Pavel Buchnevich, who have provided 33 points over the same 10-game period. The trio has been playing well all season, outscoring opponents 25-17 when sharing the ice.

Brock Nelson, C, New York Islanders (75% Rostered)

10 points (seven goals and three assists) in the last 10 games certainly makes Brock Nelson a top target for Week 22.

It is looking like it'll be another 35-goal season for the 32-year-old Nelson, who has been finding the net easily of late. It makes it easier when you are routinely playing with the same group of linemates! Throughout the season, Nelson has been paired on a line with Kyle Palmeri and Pierre Engvall. The three have played together for 514:43 this season, outscoring opponents 23-16. When you see these three hop over the boards, you can expect instant offense.

Injury Alerts

Adrian Kempe, C/RW, Los Angeles Kings

Adrian Kempe is expected to miss some time for the Kings as they work to hold on to their final Wild Card spot. The 27-year-old's 51 points (18 goals and 24 assists) are second on the team and will be essential to LA's postseason success.

Kempe left Thursday's game with just 1:35 remaining and flew back to Los Angeles without finishing the road trip. It's an upper-body diagnosis for the Swede, but the team is fully expecting him back before the end of March. It'll be perfect timing for the Kings as they'll be gearing up for their final playoff push.

Tyler Myers, D, Vancouver Canucks

A key piece to Vancouver's strong defensive core will be missing for the next couple of weeks as Tyler Myers has gone down to injury. After playing just 14:19 on Thursday, the Canucks announced that a lower-body injury will have Myers out week-to-week.

Myers has been a fit for the Canucks on their second pairing, and the team already has a comfortable lead in the Pacific Division standings. He'll slot right back into position as soon as he's of health, but the ETA is still unknown.

Josh Norris, C, Ottawa Senators

The Ottawa Senators could be set to finish out the season without one of their top forwards, as Josh Norris has been added to long-term injured reserve. The 24-year-old has had a long history of shoulder injuries throughout his career and has unfortunately added one more. He exited Tuesday's game against Nashville after crashing hard into the net, playing 6:03 before leaving.

Any hope of the playoffs has vanished by now, and it may be in the team's best interest to let their young center rest for the extra month ahead of the offseason. Norris is under contract with the Sens until 2030 so they will surely play it safe with a core piece of the future.

Team Worth Watching This Week

Calgary Flames

Normally, I like to identify a team that we should be watching because they have some winnable opponents during the upcoming week. I'll find some players who are playing well and why I believe that they are worth watching to help your fantasy teams. Not this time, though.

The Calgary Flames are the team worth watching this week simply because of the upcoming trade deadline.

Everyone has been curious about the Flames leading up to this week's deadline due to the unknown state of the team, plus expiring contracts. They've already made a couple of moves so far this year, sending Nikita Zadorov to Vancouver and Chris Tanev to Dallas. There are a couple of other interesting names out there drawing a lot of attention among the league.

Between the pipes, we have Jacob Markström. As of now, the team has let Markström know that he will be staying put through the deadline. But, if the price is right, I wouldn't be shocked to see Calgary flip the 34-year-old goaltender. He'll bring a 2.57 GAA and a .914 SV% into the deadline, and many teams on the bubble could surely use a veteran presence in the net.

The biggest name on the trade block this year is 27-year-old defenseman Noah Hanifin. He is a big, strong defenseman with a knack for scoring (11 goals and 24 assists) who can instantly make an impact on a contending team. As of now, it sounds like Boston, Tampa, and Florida are the front runners for Hanifin's services but it will surely take a large haul to bring him in.
