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 league year after year. An emphasis is placed on a player’s current performance because, at the end of the day, no one is cellying 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

– The left wing fantasy rankings have been extended to the top 100 from just the top 50.
