Jason Robertson

74.3 36.7 39.9 76.6 13.8 18.2 8.8 8.0 16.8 214.0 17.1% 18.12 2.4 22.9 48.2

Robertson enters the 2022-23 season a deserved top option on many fantasy charts after finishing 13th in Hart Trophy voting. He finished 13th in goals (41) and 35th in points (79) and led the league in game-winning goals (11). His 18.6% shooting percentage from a season ago looks unsustainable as he tries to build on his strong second season. Still, he’s still expected to approach 40/40 this season as he leads the Stars offensively 5-on-5 and on the power play. Robertson was getting a lot more pucks at the net late in the season. If that translates to 2022-23, it would offset any regression in his SH% and give him a league-winning advantage in the fourth/fifth round.

Joe Pavelsky

80.8 27.3 43.7 71.0 15.5 19.7 12.8 12.2 25.0 199.2 13.7% 6:35 p.m. 428.1 64.1 95.2

For years, people expected the aging Pavelski to slow down his fantasy production as the game ramped up around him. However, in 2021-22, like every previous season, he responded to criticism by finishing 27th in assists (54) and 30th in points (81). His 12 power-play goals tied him for 19th in the NHL, while his 25 power-play points ranked him 42nd. Regularity captain, Pavelski has not scored less than 20 goals or 50 points in a full season in the NHL since 2007-08. At 38, Pavelski happens to be a central part of the Stars’ best power play, firmly entrenched on Dallas’ top-flight first line with Robertson and Roope Hintz. Draft it with confidence in the middle rounds as similar points-per-game production can be expected as Pavelski continues to produce at a high rate as he always has.

Roope Hintz

71.4 32.2 33.3 65.5 14.0 20.9 10.4 15.3 25.7 189.9 17.0% 18.03 325.5 41.7 81.3

Hintz enters the 2022-23 fantasy no longer a secret after posting a career-high 72 points (37G/35A) in his fourth year with Dallas. His elite goal production (37) ranked him 20th in the NHL while finishing 48th in points. The good news for Hintz is that he increased his shooting volume significantly last year, but the bad news is that he shot 17.4%. He was a 13.8% shooter at the start of the season, so it might be safe to expect him to finish closer to 30 goals than 40. Over the past two seasons, Hintz is 41st in the league standings with 115 points in 121 games (52G/63A). He’s usually a sneaky pick on draft day, but expect the opposite treatment for the 25-year-old this year.

Tyler Seguin

80.4 22.1 29.1 51.2 -9.8 37.3 4.4 11.1 15.5 235.5 9.4% 17.82 508.3 33.1 96.2

Hopes were high for Seguin as he returned to the Dallas Stars in 2021-22, after a year-long recovery from hip surgery. Those same hopes were quickly dashed as he struggled with just 10 points (6G/4A) in his first 22 games. The lack of early production would foreshadow his year-long struggles as he failed to top the 50-point mark for the first time since the lockout season in 2012-13. Seguin’s minus-21 rating would put him in the bottom 50, hurting those who decided to take a chance on the talented winger. We may never see the same Seguin who was a lock for 70 points as he did every season between 2014 and 2019, so proceed with caution when drafting the 30-year-old. A late flyer on Seguin is an acceptable spot for him on draft day, as similar 25/25 production should be expected in 2022-23.

Marchment enters 2022-23 after signing a four-year, $18 million contract with the Stars. The winger enjoyed a 47-point breakout season in 2021-22 where his 0.87 points/GP ranked him 73rd among all players. An incredible 14-game streak from late January to March swelled his overall numbers. The winger has amassed 23 points (11G/12A) in 14 games on the back of a 31 SH% during that span. On a new team, Marchment will likely find himself in and out of Dallas’ top 6 most nights. That position is far less valuable now that he will be playing for the 21st-ranked scoring team than Florida, who ranked 1st. Marchment likely won’t be drafted into most leagues. He could be a gem of the waiver wire if he can beat some of the Stars veterans for precious minutes.

Jamie Benn

Benn enters 2022-23 after three straight seasons where he failed to eclipse more than 46 points. His 18 goals ranked 149th in the NHL as he failed to shoot above 10% for the second time in his 13-year career. His 46 points ranked him 150th in the league, but Benn struggled in other categories as well; his minus-13 rating and 2.22 shots/game were the worst of his career. At this point in his career, Benn is only usable down the rosters in the banger leagues.

Miro Heiskanen

76.1 7.6 31.0 38.7 1.3 21.1 2.2 9.2 11.4 171.4 4.5% 24.70 0.0 91.2 56.6

If there’s a fantastic defender who’s let owners down more than Heiskanen in the past two years, I don’t know where to find him. In his fourth year with the Stars in 2021-22, Heiskanen took a step back, posting just five goals (75th among defensemen) alongside a career-high 36 points (42nd).

With John Klingberg now in Anaheim, Heiskanen should have the best power play unit all to himself. As a result, he makes an intriguing post-hype contender, but don’t be surprised if he returns another season under 40 points. Don’t fall for his usual high ADP trap on draft day, as there are always much safer picks spinning at the same time as him.

ryan suter

81.6 6.8 28.6 35.4 2.7 30.0 2.6 10.4 13.0 122.8 5.5% 23.65 0.0 94.0 50.5

Suter’s first season in Dallas saw him finish a respectable 52nd among defensemen, scoring 32 points. His seven goals were good for 50th and were his highest tally since 2019-20. His numbers would have been even better if he hadn’t finished the season on a seven-game scoreless streak. Amazingly, Suter has never scored more than nine goals in a season in his 17-year career. With just 10 goals and 51 points in his last 138 games, Suter finds himself outside of fantasy relevance at the age of 37. A place in very deep leagues is fine, but remember you’re not drafting a first Ryan Suter. With a young Thomas Harley and Colin Miller on the roster for 2023, don’t expect much power-play deployment for Suter.

Jake Oettinger

GS O L To SV% GAA SO
58.0 30.2 21.3 6.5 0.912 2.62 1.7

Oettinger did everything he could in last year’s playoffs, but his 0.956 SV% and 1.67 GAA weren’t enough to propel the Stars past the Oilers in the first round. Only 23 years old, Oettinger enters the 2022-23 season looking to build a very solid first full season in the NHL. His 30 wins in 2021-22 were good for 12th best in the league, while his .914 SV% was good for 17th among all starters. Oettinger was fantasy gold as a midseason waiver lead pickup. Now a go-to option, a similar production of 30 wins with an average save percentage of .910 can be expected as the Stars remain in the middle of the pack in the NHL. Oettinger may not be the safest option drafted into the top 10, but he has little competition for starts. If he starts over 60 games for the first time in his career, he should easily finish in the top 10.
