FANTASY GOALIE WIN PROJECTIONS

NOTES: Goalie win projections (for 56-game season) have been quantified based on factors including but not limited to past performance in the regular season and Stanley Cup Playoffs, team goalie situations, anticipated start volume, projected goal support (or lack thereof), injury history or concern, sleeper upside, anticipated regression or bounce-back candidacy, age, contract status and overall upside for this season. The below totals are safe win estimates, do not indicate each player's ceiling or floor and should be used as a basis for decision-making in all fantasy leagues, especially wins-only formats. The order of projected win totals (highest to lowest) differs from NHL.com's top 250 rankings because the latter list takes standard peripheral categories (goals-against average, save percentage, shutouts) into account. Injuries could affect whether a player meets or comes close to his win projection. These win projections are a collaborative effort by Pete Jensen and Rob Reese.

TEAM WIN PROJECTIONS

NOTES: Team win projections (for 56-game season) have been quantified by combining NHL.com's fantasy goalie win estimates. The 31 NHL teams will be realigned in four new divisions for this season, including one for the seven teams based in Canada. Each team will face teams only in its division during the regular season, which will begin Jan. 13, 2021. NHL.com's win projections add up to the total number of games to be played within each division. Pluses and minuses indicate team win totals compared to their prorated 56-game win paces from last season. These projections do not factor in overtime and shootout losses, which each count for one point toward the NHL standings and could impact the final order of finish.
