Here’s how you can get started in your own Preds-Preds fantasy hockey season.1.

They have to make up for lost time with strong defensemen Mattias Ekholm and Vladimir Tarasenko, and they’ll also be looking for a top-six winger.

It may not be enough to beat the Predks this year, but it’s a good start.2.

Chicago is a tough team to beat.
