Sam McCaig of The Hockey News has compiled a list of the NHL's best goaltenders heading into the 2018-19 season, ranking Sergei Bobrovsky at the top.

It's a tough sell. Bobrovsky has had moments of sheer brilliance during the regular-season but has looked a fraction of that player during the post-season where he has yet to win a playoff matchup in eight years. We are not saying the 29-year-old Russian netminder isn't top-five, just that he may not be worth the top spot. Number two of the list is countryman Andrei Vasilevskiy who is coming off a breakout season that saw him win 44 games. The full list can be seen by clicking on the link below.

Anthony Beauvillier could be a nice fantasy sleeper if he is able to lock down a spot on New York's top line during training camp.

Despite being a healthy scratch seven times last season, Beauvillier finished the season with a 21 goals and 36 points in 71 games, mainly because he was playing alongside Mathew Barzal and Jordan Eberle. Both Barzal and Eberle are expected to be promoted to the team's top line, and if Beauvillier can move up with them, that would make him a candidate for a 25+ goal season. This is a situation to monitor during training camp.

Mathew Barzal and Jordan Eberle will likely be moving up to the top line following the departure of John Tavares.

Playing primarily as the second line center, Barzal finished his rookie season with 22 goals and 85 points in 82 games, running away with the Calder Trophy. Pete Jensen of NHL.com is currently projecting either Anders Lee or Anthony Beauvillier as being the third party on New York's new top line. Despite losing the franchise's best player, the Islanders still have plenty of talent that will make their roster fantasy relevant.

The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed a three-year contract with the Orlando Solar Bears of the ECHL.

The Solar Bears will become the Lightning's second farm team after the AHL's Syracuse Crunch. "We are extremely happy to welcome the Orlando Solar Bears into the Lightning organization today," Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman said. "The Solar Bears organization has demonstrated a strong commitment to success that has paid off with numerous playoff appearances. We look forward to being a part of their future accomplishments while also developing our prospects in a world class environment."

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.
