Week 21 of the Fantasy Hockey season begins on Monday. Keep your eyes peeled to the NHL Trade Deadline of February 29 as potentially traded players might find themselves occupying a spot on your roster wearing street clothes instead of a hockey sweater. Here's what I have for you this week.

Teams with four games this week are the Arizona Coyotes, Boston Bruins, Carolina Hurricane, Columbus Blue Jackets, Edmonton Oilers, Los Angeles Kings, Minnesota Wild, Nashville Predators, San Jose Sharks, St Louis Blues and Washington Capitals.

Teams with just two games this week are the Chicago Blackhawks, Colorado Avalanche, Detroit Red Wings, Pittsburgh Penguins and Vancouver Canucks. Every other NHL team has three games on their schedule this week.

Week 21 Back to Back Games

Arizona (Mon-Tue), Buffalo (Fri-Sat), Carolina (Thur-Fri), Columbus (Mon-Tue), Edmonton (Thur-Fri), Florida (Sat-Sun), Los Angeles (Sat-Sun), Minnesota (Thur-Fri), Nashville (Mon-Tue) and  St Louis (Sat-Sun).
