Aug 09, 08:30 PM

Pete and Nick are joined by Anna Dua and David Satriano from NHL.com to discuss their first fantasy hockey mock draft for the upcoming season. Each manager drafted three teams in the 12-team, 16-round, 192-player simulation and reacts to placement of the biggest offseason movers like Jonathan Huberdeau, Matthew Tkachuk, Johnny Gaudreau and the most intriguing stacks from the Rangers, Hurricanes and new-look Flames (Huberdeau and MacKenzie Weegar). Other topics include Cale Makar vs. Auston Matthews at No. 3 overall, how to approach elite players entering contract years (e.g. J.T. Miller, Patrick Kane), the value of Bruins players after Patrice Bergeron re-signed and David Krejci returned from overseas on one-year contracts, players who were reached for (e.g. Robin Lehner, Jake Sanderson) or slipped based on their NHL.com/Fantasy rank and late-round picks with hidden upside (e.g. Andrei Kuzmenko, Calen Addison).
