FORWARD POINT PROJECTIONS FOR 2019-20

NOTES: Forward point projections have been quantified based on factors including but not limited to past production, projected line combinations, power-play usage, injury history, sleeper upside, anticipated regression or bounce-back candidacy, age and contract status. … The below totals are safe point estimates and do not indicate each player's ceiling or floor. … The order of projected point totals (highest to lowest) does not reflect order of rank in NHL.com's fantasy top 250 because those rankings take standard peripheral categories into account. … Injuries could affect whether players meet or come close to their point projection. … These projections are a collaborative effort by Pete Jensen, Rob Reese and David Satriano. Bold indicates players whose projection has changed in most recent update.
