Centers | LW | Mock draft | Cheat sheet



Standard fantasy categories include 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, power-play usage, injury history or concern (INJ. - players who could miss the start of this season), age, contract status (2020 unrestricted free agents: *; restricted: **) and overall upside for the 2020-21 season. These rankings are a collaborative effort by Pete Jensen and Rob Reese. Position eligibility is based on last season and subject to change for 2020-21 (any dual-eligible players are listed below). Some players who are eligible at right wing may have been categorized as centers (e.g. Tyler Seguin) or left wings (e.g. Andrei Svechnikov, J.T. Miller, Jake Guentzel, Matthew Tkachuk) based on either their primary position last season or projected position for this season.
