A tumultuous all-star break made up in action off the ice for what it lacked on the ice in the fantasy hockey realm.

Elias Lindholm is now a member of the Vancouver Canucks, the Winnipeg Jets added Sean Monahan, the Los Angeles Kings have a new head coach and the Pittsburgh Penguins are taking a chance (maybe his last) on Jesse Puljujarvi.

Week 17 of the fantasy hockey season continues — not begins — on Monday with a pair of games, then we have an eight-game Tuesday slate and a lighter three-game schedule on Wednesday. If you play in weekly-roster leagues, a few of your spots might be locked in from all the way back on Jan. 29, which is when this two-week “fantasy week” housing the All-Star Game began.

The point being, be cautious and thoughtful with the schedule this week. If you have daily roster changes, the Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Rangers, Colorado Avalanche and Dallas Stars should be your focus to start the week, as each team gets in two games through Wednesday.
