With the NHL pausing the 2019-20 regular season on March 12 due to the concerns surrounding the coronavirus, is taking stock of each of the League's 31 teams.
Today, a fantasy recap of the Calgary Flames at the pause:
NOTE: Rank for fantasy most valuable player is based on standard-category production to date.
Fantasy MVP: Matthew Tkachuk, LW/RW (rank: 39) -- Despite mostly playing on a different line than valuable left wing Johnny Gaudreau and center Sean Monahan at even strength again this season, Tkachuk not only leads the Flames with 61 points (23 goals, 38 assists) but is their best category coverage asset. In addition to strong totals in power-play points (19; tied with Elias Lindholm for Flames lead) and shots on goal (188; second behind Gaudreau's 209), Tkachuk's 122 hits rank second on Calgary behind Milan Lucic's 198.
