Ben Bishop, DAL -- He took the Dallas Stars to Game 7 of the second round and had a valiant 52-save performance in the double-overtime loss; he went 7-6 with a .933 save percentage in 13 Stanley Cup Playoff games. Andrei Vasilevskiy and the Tampa Bay Lightning were swept in the first round of the playoffs, so Bishop, who led the NHL in SV% during the regular season (.934), deserves to be the top-ranked fantasy goalie entering the offseason -- even with injury concerns.

Jordan Binnington, STL -- The St. Louis Blues rookie continues to gain fantasy value with an impressive postseason, going 12-7 with a .914 SV% and one shutout through 19 games. He has gained separation from backup Jake Allen and is St. Louis' No. 1 fantasy goalie option moving forward. With Binnington's impressive regular season (24-5-1; .927 SV%) and high level of play during the postseason (7-2 on road entering Stanley Cup Final), fantasy owners should target him among the first six at the position.

Carter Hart, PHI -- The Philadelphia Flyers goalie was second among rookies in wins (16) behind Binnington this season, taking over for goalies Brian Elliott and Michael Neuvirth in the second half and finishing with a .917 SV% in 31 games. The Flyers acquired goalie Cam Talbot prior to the 2019 NHL Trade Deadline, but, like Elliott and Neuvirth, Talbot can become an unrestricted free agent July 1. Hart will likely be the No. 1 goalie option for the Flyers next season and could return significant value in fantasy drafts if they receive a boost from new coach Alain Vigneault.



Standard Yahoo goalie categories include wins, goals-against average, save percentage and shutouts. Value has been quantified based on factors including but not limited to past production, team goalie situations, anticipated start volume, projected goal support (or lack thereof), injury history, sleeper, bounce-back or breakout potential, anticipated regression, age and contract status (potential 2019 UFA: *; RFA: **). INJ. indicates player with injury concern for next season.
