No. 96 - Brooks Scorpik

Players are being moved left and right, but Elan and Brian are still right here to bring you the goods in a brand new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast.

Trades stole the spotlight all week long, raising all kinds of questions. Where do the newest Panther forwards line up on the depth chart? Which Oiler has the best chance to play with the newly opened spot alongside Taylor Hall and Leon Draisaitl? Will Andrew Ladd fare any better on the Chicago top line than he did earlier this year on Winnipeg's? Will the Toronto Maple Leafs still exist in April? We're here to help you sort out what each deal means for the teams on both sides. 

We also take our usual tour around the league to find the most important hot streaks, cold streaks, injuries and outjuries that you need to know about in the midst of your fantasy playoff push.

Players discussed in this episode include Andrew Ladd, Jiri Hudler, Andrew Shaw, James Reimer, Martin Jones, Justin Schultz, Mark Scheifele, Joel Armia, Marko Dano, Dale Weise, Tomas Fleischmann, Alex Galchenyuk, Lars Eller, Sven Andrighetto, Christian Ehrhoff, Jonathan Bernier, Garrett Sparks, David Jones, Jakub Kindl, Teddy Purcell, Sean Monahan, Johnny Gaudreau, Aleksander Barkov, Trevor Daley, Matt Martin, Brian Elliott, Anders Nilsson, Jake Allen, Mike Cammalleri, Adam Henrique, Lee Stempniak, Travis Zajac, Brooks Orpik, Matt Niskanen, Dmitri Orlov, Karl Alzner, John Carlson, Noah Hanifin, John-Michael Liles, Michael Neuvirth, Steve Mason, Joni Ortio, Jonas Hiller, Jaroslav Halak, Thomas Greiss, Mark Streit, Jakub Voracek, Zach Bogosian, Brandon Dubinsky, Jason Pominville, Matt Beleskey, David Pastrnak, Ondrej Palat, Ryan Johansen, Mike Ribeiro, Dimitri Kulikov, Niklas Kronwall, Mike Green, Evgeni Malkin, Carl Hagelin, Carey Price, William Nylander and more.

No. 95 - Lehner’s Permit

Brace yourselves: it's the second ever live episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! 

In an action-packed 80 minutes on the air, Elan and Brian bring up and break down all of the latest news from every corner of the National Hockey League.

The show kicks off with a look at the suddenly rejuvenated Wild, where we discuss if their recent mini win streak means that they're turning the corner for good, or if it's all just a mirage.

We then dig deep into Brian's hoarded stash of old newspapers in an attempt to gain insight into the mind of Ken Hitchcock, and whether we can apply any hints from the past in trying to predict how he'll choose the starters in the St. Louis nets in the coming weeks. Other creases around the league get a similar glimpse, including goaltending 'situations' in Buffalo, Long Island, and Carolina.

Then, we turn our attention to some of the hottest-- and coldest-- players in the NHL, and take a look under the hood to see whether or not a change in fortune awaits them in the near future, for better or for worse.

And, finally, we take a few questions from our live studio audience, including thoughts on Anaheim's front and back ends, best candidates for a change of scenery, a potential hole to be filled on Calgary's top line, and which NHLer we'd want to see on Survivor.

Players discussed on this episode include Jared Staal, Jason Spezza, Patrick Sharp, Jason Pominville, Jake Allen, Brian Elliott, Charlie Coyle, Martin Hanzal, Cam Ward, Eddie Lack, Joakim Nordstrom, Brayden Schenn, Martin Hanzal, Robin Lehner, Thomas Greiss, Jaroslav Halak, Shane Gostisbehere, Kyle Turris, Mike Green, Matthew Dumba, Mikko Koivu, Jared Spurgeon, Ryan Callahan, Marian Hossa, Andrew Shaw, Dustin Brown, Anze Kopitar, Bryan Little, Nikolai Ehlers, Andrew Ladd, Jiri Hudler, David Perron, Cam Fowler, Ryan O'Reilly, Evander Kane, Ivan Provorov, Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Kevin Connauton, Michael Stone, Andre Burakovsky, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Claude Giroux, Mattias Janmark, Patrick Eaves, Ales Hemsky, Sam Gagner, Martin Erat, Marty Turco, Ed Belfour, John Scott, and more.

No. 94 - Jari’s Boy

First off, an announcement: after the success and positive feedback from last week's live show, we've decided to do it again! Join us for our second ever live recording of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey podcast on Sunday Feb. 21st (next Sunday!) at 8:00pm EST. You can join the Blab hangout at keepingkarlsson.com/live.

This brand new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast begins with a late-season Smörgoaliesbord reprise, in which Elan and Brian rank a smattering of largely unproven and somewhat undesirable goalies that are being pressed into action in Columbus, Montreal, Winnipeg and Arizona.

We continue on with news and analysis of the latest injuries and outjuries-- and a trade!-- and how they've affected depth charts around the league especially on the back-end in Florida, Ottawa, St. Louis, Minnesota and Vancouver. 


Finally, we break down some of the hottest fantasy performers of the last 10 days, including an unlikely trio of Panthers, a not at all but kind of related pair of Avalanche(s?), a zanily-deployed Senator, and a freshly promoted Predator.

Players discussed in this episode include: Sergei Bobrovsky, Joonas Korpisalo, Carey Price,  Ben Scrivens, Connor Hellebuyck, Ondrej Pavelec, Kari Ramo, Jonas Hiller, Loui Domingue, Anders Nilsson, Laurent Brossoit, Jason Spezza, Patrick Eaves, Patrick Sharp, Alex Edler, Brandon Sutter, Chris Tanev, Ben Hutton, Bo Horvat, Radim Vrbata, Jonas Brodin, Jared Spurgeon, Matt Dumba, Charlie Coyle, Jason Pominville, Alex Barkov, Vincent Trocheck, Jussi Jokinen, Reilly Smith, Alex Pietrangelo, Colton Parayko, Jaden Schwartz, Dion Phaneuf, Morgan Rielly, Jake Gardiner, Connor McDavid, Taylor Hall, Leon Draisaitl, Jarome Iginla, Blake Comeau, JP Pageau, Calle Jarnkrok and more!

No. 93 - Welcome Back, Konner

For the first time ever, this most recent episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast was recorded live! 

This week's show kicked off with a look at a couple of likely fantasy free agent top six wingers who can help your fantasy team down the stretch, so long as they can hold on to the coattails of their respective superstar centremen.

Elan and Brian then moved on to locating the hottest streaks around the league, pinpointing players in Minnesota's top six and on Ottawa's blue line, as well as taking note of Philadelphia's left-wing depth, an unleashed Toronto centre, and a Hurricane who is producing despite playing on what must be their third line.

We also looked at shifting lineups around the league and the subsequent opportunities that have become available, inlcuding an unlikely goal-scorer in New York, a top line rookie in New Jersey, and de facto depth chart climbing d-man in Calgary.

And finally, the show wraps up with a Lightning Round in which we take questions from our live studio audience.
