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.

NHL.com has ranked Ty Smith as New Jersey's top prospect.

Smith, 18, was the 17th overall pick from the 2018 Draft. He was praised pre-draft, for his excellent mobility and awareness in all aspects of the game. NHL.com projects his NHL arrival to be in the 2019-20 season but that won't stop him from trying to crack the roster this season. "Anytime you're trying out for an NHL team as an 18-year-old, you're considered a long shot to make it because this is a league of men and lots of great players," Smith said. "But if I get the invite to training camp, I'll go there and give my best effort to make the team, I guess." The rest of New Jersey's top-five prospects can be seen by clicking on the link below.

The Nashville Predators led the NHL in scoring by defensemen last season.

The Predators got 56 goals and 150 assists from their blueliners, which isn't shocking when you consider the personnel at their disposal. P.K. Subban led the way with 59 points, Roman Josi had 53, Matthias Ekholm had 34 and Ryan Ellis had 32 (in 44 games). There's a good chance that Nashville defenders will fly off the board during standard fantasy league drafts this year. This is truly a special group.

Joe Vitale will be the radio analyst for St. Louis Blues games on KMOX 1120AM.

Vitale is from the St. Louis and he currently lives there with his wife and three children. "Growing up in St. Louis you don’t dream of playing for the Rangers or playing for Pittsburgh," Vitale said. "You want to be a St. Louis Blue. "This is my city," Vitale said. "And I always wanted to be a Blue. I’m so passionate about this team, since from the very get-go with my dad bringing me to games as a kid." The 32-year-old played in 234 NHL games with Pittsburgh and Arizona. Vitale studied journalism at Northeastern University.
