2012-13 NHL.com Fantasy Hockey Awards
NHL.com's team of fantasy hockey insiders reflects on the players that have defined the fantasy landscape - for better or worse.

With the 2012-13 regular season now in our rearview mirror, it's time for our team of NHL.com Fantasy Hockey insiders to reflect on the players that have defined the fantasy landscape -- for better or worse -- during this 48-game campaign.

Our fantasy experts -- Matt Cubeta, Pete Jensen, Chris Foster, Matt Sitkoff, Sergei Feldman, Brian Metzer and Justin Goldman -- have cast their votes, outlining the best fantasy players at each position based on eligibility in Yahoo! leagues.

The list of year-end awards is also complete with the biggest underachievers and most notable fantasy rookies, as well as sleeper and bounceback candidates to keep an eye on for next season.

So, as we officially say goodbye to another compelling fantasy hockey season, here are the 2012-13 NHL.com Fantasy Hockey awards. For further video analysis, be sure to watch NHL.com's Fantasy Awards Google+ Hangout.

NOTE: If a player is listed at multiple positions in Yahoo! Leagues, then it is the writer's choice to nominate that player for any eligible positional fantasy award.
