FANTASY FORWARD POINT PROJECTIONS

NOTES: Forward point projections (for 82-game season) have been quantified based on factors including but not limited to past performance in the regular season and Stanley Cup Playoffs, projected line combinations, power-play usage, injury history or concern (INJ. – players who could miss start of season), sleeper upside, anticipated regression or bounce-back candidacy, age, contract status and overall upside for this season. Forward position eligibility in Yahoo Fantasy has been updated for 2021-22.

The below totals are safe point 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 points-only formats. The order of projected point totals (highest to lowest) differs from NHL.com’s top 250 rankings because the latter list takes standard peripheral categories into account. Injuries could affect whether a player meets or comes close to his point projection. These projections are a collaborative effort by Pete Jensen and Rob Reese.
