2013 Fantasy NHL Top 150 Rankings

Have you ever played a Fantasy Sport that you knew nothing about? Last year I took the plunge and joined my first Fantasy NHL League. The main reason I joined the league was due to the NBA lockout at the time, but it turned out to be pretty fun. I would recommend you do the same and join a Fantasy NHL league before the season starts this weekend. Even though I hadn’t watched a hockey game since Joe Sakic and Peter Forsberg were dominating on the Colorado Avalanche, I quickly got attached to certain players like Claude Giroux and Jamie Benn.

Ryan Nugent Hopkins

Now that the NHL Lockout is finally over and I have one year of experience under my belt, it’s time for Fantasy NHL Round II. This time I won’t be so dumb and make the mistake of drafting defenders in the second and third round. Turns out defenders are pretty useless for the most part and even the best defenders don’t earn you much in the fantasy world. I also won’t be able to get Claude Giroux in the 5th round this year. Talk about a steal of a draft pick. Who will be this years Claude Giroux? Ryan Nugent-Hopkins or maybe Evander Kane? If you are in need of some Fantasy NHL advice, I have compiled a Top 150 Draft Cheatsheet, for your convenience.

Disclaimer: I do not claim to know anything about NHL but I do know a thing or two about statistics. This list is an aggregated list of Expert Rankings, combined with minor adjustments for Sleepers and Busts.
