2014-15 NHL.com Fantasy Hockey award selections

by NHL.com Fantasy Hockey Staff / NHL.com

With the 2014-15 regular season now in our rearview mirror, it's time for NHL.com's fantasy hockey insiders to reflect on players that have defined the landscape -- for better or worse.

Matt Cubeta, Pete Jensen, Matt Sitkoff, Brian Metzer and Evan Sporer 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 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 season, here are the 2014-15 NHL.com Fantasy Hockey awards.

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. These picks reflect the most valuable, surprising and disappointing players for the 2014-15 NHL regular season.
