Niklas Kronwall admitted that the 2018-19 season could be his last.

"I love the game," Kronwall said. "I can't say enough good things about it. But at the same time you have to be realistic. I know where I'm at right now. A year from now I don't know where I'll be at. I'd love to sign [for] another year but let's face it. The team's getting younger. I'm getting older. The game's getting faster. I'm not the same player I was 10 years ago. But I'm going to do what I can this year both on the ice and off the ice. And just try to be as efficient as I possibly can." Kronwall has had his share of injuries over the years, but he's put together a solid career. The last few seasons have been a lot more difficult for him. Don't expect him to carry any fantasy value going forward.

David Backes is confident that he'll be able to stay healthy this season.

The 34-year-old played in just 57 games last year because of various ailments, including colon surgery, but he's expecting to be healthy in 2018-19. "We had a lot of freak injuries, a lot of missed time that was kind of one-off type instances," Backes said. "So I'm looking forward to a full season, getting in the trenches, getting in some games and getting deep in the [Stanley Cup] Playoffs. I put it in perspective. You have colon surgery -- that's not going to happen this year. Chances say you get your leg cut by a skate, that [hadn't] happened in 12 years. A suspension, that [had] never happened before. So all those things just happening in the course of one season -- my money's on none of that happening this year." Even if Backes is able to stay healthy, he isn't worth owning in standard fantasy leagues.

In his return to the NHL, Ilya Kovalchuk has been given dual eligibility (LW/RW) by Yahoo.

Dual eligibility may seem like a small detail, but it could have large impacts on your squad by giving you added flexibility during days you mainly have players of one position suiting up. Tomas Hertl is the only noteworthy player this season to be tri-eligible (C/LW/RW). A full list of noteworthy dual-eligible players has been compiled by NHL.com and can be seen by clicking the link below.

Adam Kimelman of NHL.com wouldn't be surprised if rookie Andrei Svechnikov bagged himself 25-30 goals in his rookie season.

Svechnikov has impressive size (6'2", 188 lbs) that he combines well with a NHL-caliber shot. The Hurricanes have nothing to lose and should give their rookie all the opportunity to thrive in a top-six role this season. Barring injuries, the 18-year-old Russian will be fantasy relevant this season and is someone you shouldn't shy away from in drafts.

Miro Heiskanen believes he's ready to make the leap to the NHL.

"I think so," he said of being ready for the NHL. "I had a really good summer. I think I am ready." The Stars drafted Heiskanen third overall in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, but he stayed in Finland last season. The 19-year-old picked up 11 goals and 23 points in 30 games with HIFK Helsinki. The Stars will bring him along slowly, but they're aware of his immense potential. "We expect him to be an important part of our team," Stars coach Jim Montgomery said. "We expect to bring him along slowly, allowing him to play and play the way he needs to play in order to have success because, ultimately, that is going to make the Dallas Stars better. So we are going to live with mistakes, and he is going to get thrown back out there. We're going to try to make sure he is put in situations to have success early, and as he shows the ability to have success, we're going to give him more and more."

Leon Draisaitl knows he and his teammates are coming off a disappointing season but that won't stop them from pushing for a playoff spot this season.

"I think we’re too good of a team where we’re not at least competing in the playoffs or not in the race," Draisaitl said "And even if we are, that’s probably not good enough. We want to make the playoffs and I think we have the team to do it. Now it’s up to the players to show it." Despite the disappointing season for the Oilers, Draisaitl was still able to put up 70 points, giving him back-to-back 70+ point seasons. Another disappointing season in Edmonton could spell some big changes for the club.
