Tyler Johnson leads NHL.com's Midseason Fantasy Hockey Awards

by Staff Writer / Tampa Bay Lightning

With the first half of the 2014-15 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.

Our regular fantasy contributors -- Matt Cubeta (@NHLQubes), Pete Jensen (@NHLJensen), Matt Sitkoff (@MSitkoffNHL), Brian Metzer (@Brian_Metzer), Evan Sporer (@ev_sporer), Sebastien Deschambault, David Satriano (@davidsatriano), Eric Goodman (@ericgoodman4) and Mike Battaglino -- have cast their votes, outlining the best fantasy players at each position based on eligibility and standard-league categories in Yahoo leagues.

These picks have been made based on the players' performances during the first half of the 2014-15 NHL season and not with further production in mind.

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 2014-15 NHL.com midseason Fantasy Hockey awards.

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.
