Midseason top 200 fantasy hockey rankings
NHL.com insiders Matt Cubeta and Pete Jensen rank the League's most valuable fantasy hockey assets as we near the midway point of the 2013-14 season.

The official midway point of the 2013-14 NHL season (Game No. 615 of 1230) falls on Jan. 2, but NHL.com has your fantasy hockey needs covered just in time for the holiday season.

Below are updated top-200 overall player rankings, as determined by fantasy insiders Matt Cubeta and Pete Jensen. As we approach the League's three-day break from game action, fantasy owners should use these rankings as a basis for team evaluation and future transactions.

These rankings should be viewed as our experts' opinionated projections of the League's most valuable fantasy assets based on performance to this point and expectations of the season moving forward. Injured players have been included based on approximate recovery time and potential impact upon their return. Other factors taken into account include Yahoo position eligibility, line combinations, category coverage, contract status and statistical performance from previous seasons.

NOTE: These rankings project value in standard fantasy hockey leagues, which include a 6x4 category scoring system: goals, assists, plus-minus, power-play points, shots on goal, penalty minutes, goalie wins, goals-against average, save percentage and shutouts.
