Alberga’s Fantasy Fix: Hot Start

For the time being – all order seems to be restored in the world. Well, at least in terms of fantasy hockey.

Alex Ovechkin is on pace for 287 goals, Patrick Kane looks just fine without Artemi Panarin and Connor McDavid can still be clipped for speeding if he skated through a school zone.

Now – most of that is not shocking but nonetheless, it’s still fantastic to see.
