Dec 2016 update

– The purpose of these rankings is to aid hockey fans in selecting their players and building their team so they can they win their fantasy hockey league year after year. An emphasis is placed on a player’s current performance because at the end of the day, no one is cellyin’ for coming 2nd or 3rd place.

– On pool sites such as yahoo! fantasy hockey, players have multiple positions. Players included in these rankings play this position the majority of the time.

– based on these factors: age, season/past performance, player potential, and frequency of injury.

– based on yahoo! standard league stats: G, A, +/-, PIM, PPP, SOG

– rankings will be updated once per month

  1. Jack Jones says:

    Solid rankings thanks.

    Missing Mack though? Or are you considering him a RW for the purposes of these rankings?

    • Luke Rachar says:


      Right now, I have MacKinnon listed under RW since he predominantly skated on the right side for most of 2014-2015.
      That said, it could be subject to change if and when O’Reilly is traded from Colorado as MacKinnon seems like the likely replacement up the middle.

      But until then, yes, he’ll be listed under the Top 100 RW fantasy rankings, which will be released on the 15th of May.

      • Jack Jones says:

        Fantastic thanks Luke.
        Great lists – looking forward to seeing the RW one as it’s pretty thin compared to C & LW imo.
