FANTASY TOP 250 RANKINGS

Standard fantasy categories: goals, assists, plus/minus, power-play points, shots on goal and hits for skaters; wins, goals-against average, save percentage and shutouts for goalies. Value has been quantified based on factors including but not limited to past production in the regular season and Stanley Cup Playoffs, line combinations, defense pairs, power-play usage, team goalie situations, anticipated start volume, projected goal support (or lack thereof), injury history or concern, age, contract status (potential 2023 unrestricted free agents are noted: *) and overall upside for this season. Forward positions indicate eligibility in Yahoo Fantasy leagues for this season. This list is a collaborative effort by Pete Jensen and Anna Dua.
