Sebastien Aho

80.0 37.9 43.2 81.1 18.3 39.0 13.8 15.6 29.4 224.0 16.9% 19.17 537.6 26.5 69.0

Over the past four seasons, Aho ranked ninth in the NHL with 129 goals and 17th with 287 points. He’s been remarkably consistent, averaging 37 goals and 46 assists (83 points) in 82 games while missing just three games in those four years. He probably doesn’t have the league-winning advantage, but he’s a reliable center pick late in the second/early third round if you decide to go with a first-round winger.

Andrei Svechnikov

79.2 27.8 40.1 67.8 13.2 72.9 7.6 15.2 22.8 235.4 11.8% 17.24 0.7 20.9 174.8

The 2018 No. 2 overall pick finally hit the 30-goal mark in 2022 after pretty walkable numbers in his first three NHL seasons. Svechnikov increased his shot volume from 2.53 SOG/g to 3.19 SOG/g, which was the driving force behind the increase in goals scored. If he can maintain that volume, he’ll approach 30 goals again. Svechnikov’s biggest concern is the loss of Vincent Trocheck in free agency. Over the past three seasons, Svechnikov has played 67% of his ice time 5-on-5 with Aho or Trocheck. If he doesn’t land with Aho, he’ll probably skate with Paul Stastny or Jesperi Kotkaniemi. The range of results for Svechnikov is wide, but he carries 30 goals, 40 assists and 180 hits that very few players do. However, he has a similar profile to Evander Kane and made 30 early picks in Yahoo’s early ADPs.

Teuvo Teravainen

79.5 21.2 46.2 67.3 22.4 20.4 8.1 20.6 28.6 206.9 10.2% 17.87 28.9 32.2 18.4

Injuries ruined Teravainen’s 2021 season, but he returned to full health in 2022 and had 65 points (22G/43A) in 77 games. Teravainen has become a staple on the Aho wing, playing 71.7% of his ice time 5-on-5 with him over the past three seasons. Although his goalscoring advantage is limited (21 goals in 82 games since 2018), he will be among the top 40 in assists. Drafting Teravaienen plugs 20 goals and 40 assists into your lineup with little deflection.

Seth Jarvis

77.0 20.3 34.3 54.5 10.9 14.0 3.0 6.1 9.1 140.3 14.4% 3:00 p.m. 11.7 22.3 73.2

Jarvis had a terrific rookie campaign, scoring 17 goals and 23 assists (40 points) in 68 games. However, it didn’t garner much praise, as he finished 13th in the Calder Trophy voting. It also doesn’t seem like Fantasy owners are paying much attention, as his current ADP (169.6) means he’s currently in the last two rounds of Fantasy Drafts. Meanwhile, few players have as much breakout potential as Jarvis in 2022-23. He didn’t carve out a significant role for himself until midway through the season, when he found himself locked into a position on Aho’s wing. Jarvis finished the season with 21 points (9G/12A) in 24 games and eight points (3G/5A) in 14 playoff games. If you extrapolate those numbers over an 82-game season, Jarvis will finish with 26 goals and 37 assists (63 points). If this current ADP stays, he will be an absolute steal on draft day.

Martin Necas

76.9 16.4 28.9 45.3 10.8 26.1 4.4 5.3 9.7 150.7 10.9% 16.18 37.6 26.5 61.3

Necas was a popular breakout candidate a season ago after posting 41 points (14G/27A) in 53 games in 2021. However, he posted nearly identical numbers (14G/26A) in 78 games and saw his playing time drop by one minute per game. . Going into 2022-23, it looked like he would be buried in the Hurricanes’ top 6, but a serious injury to Max Pacioretty should keep him in the top 6 for the first half of the season. Necas shot 14.9% in his first two seasons and 8.8% last year, so there is a chance he will see a positive regression in his shooting percentage and reach 20 goals for the first time of her career.

Jordan Staal

78.5 17.3 23.0 40.3 7.7 29.7 2.6 3.5 6.1 147.8 11.7% 5:25 p.m. 799.2 33.0 202.5

Staal isn’t really fantasy relevant unless you’re in leagues that count wins and/or hits. In the face-off circle, he’s one of the best and can add over 200 hits, but he’ll go over about 40 runs.

Brent burns

generalist g A PLS (+/-) GIP GPP APP PPP SOG S% YOURS FOW noir HIT
82.0 8.2 30.6 38.8 15.0 33.8 3.1 9.5 12.7 162.6 5.0% 19.82 0.0 109.9 44.0

Burns was a fantastic darling from 2015 to 2019, but returned to the peloton in his mid-30s. Over the past three seasons, he’s tied for 13th among defensemen in goals (29), 12th in assists (99), 10th in points (128) and 17th in points on the power play (41). Still, he is highly reliable, having not missed a game since 2014. An off-season move to Carolina could rejuvenate his fantasy career as he takes over from Tony DeAngelo (traded to PHI) on PP1. DeAngelo was in the top 15 in points and PPP despite playing just 64 games a season ago, so Burns has plenty of upside in his 19th NHL season.

Max Pacioretty

38.0 18.3 19.0 37.3 10.9 23.1 4.4 6.3 10.7 147.5 12.4% 17.71 13.2 20.8 33.3

Pacioretty was traded to Carolina this offseason but tore his Achilles tendon in August. He’s expected to be out until early or mid-February, making him a late-round pick and an IR hideout. A season ago, he only played 39 games and scored 19 goals with 18 assists (37 points), so he is still 20-20 ahead even if he misses half of the season.

Jacob Slavin

78.5 4.6 32.4 37.0 34.3 8.5 0.4 4.3 4.6 161.7 2.9% 23.38 0.0 123.4 50.4

Slavin ranks among the best defenders in real life, but he’s less valuable in fantasy circles. Still, he should be a staple in PP2 behind Burns and finish with 35-40 points and a plus-minus which should help stabilize your team in this category.

Jesperi Kotkaniemi

generalist g A PLS (+/-) GIP GPP APP PPP SOG S% YOURS FOW noir HIT
74.9 12.8 20.1 32.9 3.4 38.2 0.8 4.8 5.6 122.4 10.4% 14.95 307.7 31.8 102.4

With Vincent Trocheck now in New York, Kotkaniemi was expected to be the Hurricanes’ No. 2 center until they signed Paul Stastny in late August. The 22-year-old will battle with the veteran for playing time, and depending on where he lands on the depth chart, it will have a significant impact on his fantasy value. So it would be best if you dropped him on the waiver thread and monitored his status at the start of the season.

Frederic Andersen

GS O L To SV% GAA SO
54.8 31.2 17.5 6.2 0.916 2.36 3.0

A few injuries aside, Andersen’s first year at Carolina couldn’t have gone better. He finished the season with 35 wins (7th in the NHL), a GAA of 2.17 (2nd) and an SV% of 0.922 (t-3rd). Antti Raanta has struggled to stay healthy over the years so Andersen should see the bulk of starts again. He is a fantastic safe #1 option with a top 5 on the rise.

Antti Raanta

GS O L To SV% GAA SO
27.2 15.5 8.7 3.1 0.909 2.54 1.6

Over the past four years, Raanta ranks 48th in the number of games started (81), highlighting his difficulty in staying healthy. Still, he performed very well when healthy, posting a .914 SV%. Raanta deserves to be chosen late in the draft as the No.3 or No.4 goalkeeper because he will provide a lot of value when he starts. Moreover, Andersen hasn’t been a health role model in recent years either, so Raanta could become extremely valuable if Andersen misses out at any time.
