NHL.com's Midseason Fantasy Hockey Awards
NHL.com's team of fantasy hockey insiders reflects on the first-half performers and storylines that have defined the fantasy landscape to this point.
With the first half of the 2012-13 season now in our rearview mirror, it's time for our team of NHL.com Fantasy Hockey insiders to reflect on the performers and storylines that have defined the fantasy landscape through 24 games.

WATCH: MIDSEASON AWARDS HANGOUT

Our regular fantasy contributors -- Matt Cubeta (@NHLQubes), Pete Jensen (@NHLJensen), Chris Foster (@NHLFoster), Sergei Feldman (@NHLFeldman), Matt Sitkoff (@MSitkoffNHL), Brian Metzer (@Brian_Metzer) and Justin Goldman (@TheGoalieGuild) -- have cast their votes, outlining the best fantasy players at each position based on eligibility in Yahoo! leagues.

The list of midseason awards is also jam-packed with the most notable fantasy rookies and sleepers to watch in the second half of the season. So, without further ado, here are the 2012-13 NHL.com midseason Fantasy Hockey awards. For further analysis, be sure to watch the replay of our "Midseason Awards" NHL.com Fantasy Google+ hangout.

NOTE: If a player is listed at multiple positions in Yahoo! Leagues, then it was the writer's choice to put him where he wanted among the awards.
