The day we've all been waiting for is here!  The 2021 NHL season commences tonight with a five-game slate and we're aiming to help all of our readers, longtime and new, skate to a fantasy title. With the season underway, we're shifting our focus from the Draft Guide features to our Season Tools.

Jammed with content aimed at providing the knowledge you need to make the perfect draft decisions for both standard and dynasty leagues — from weekly projections, rankings and tiers to exclusive expert columns, top waiver wire adds and skating reports — we've never been more proud of what we have to offer. Plus, you can use promo code PUCK10 for 10% off any tier or package right now.

To kick things off, we're going to take a look at our Start/Sit Tool, and apply it to several mid-tier players from tonight's opening slate.  Taking into account matchups, projected ice time and more, this tool is designed to help you field the best roster possible each and every week.

Take a look:

Each of these players is projected for similar ice time and in the realm of 2-3 shots, but as you can see, Mikko Rantanen and Jason Zucker are more likely to pick up an assist, which can make all the difference in a player's final performance.
