Standard fantasy categories: goals, assists, plus/minus, power-play points, shots on goal and hits for skaters. Value has been quantified based on factors including but not limited to past production in the regular season and Stanley Cup Playoffs, line combinations, injury history or concern (INJ.), age, contract status (restricted free agents listed below) and overall upside for this season. Forward position eligibility for Yahoo Fantasy leagues is listed below. These rankings are a collaborative effort by Pete Jensen and Rob Reese.

Some players who are eligible at left wing may have been categorized as centers (e.g. Leon Draisaitl, Sam Bennett, Jack Hughes, Roope Hintz) or right wings (e.g. Matthew Tkachuk, William Nylander, David Perron, Bryan Rust) based on either their primary position last season or projected position for this season.
