Rank increased | Rank decreased | Rank unchanged | Comment updated since last update
RANKPLAYER
#1 Connor McDavid (EDM, C) AGE: 24.5
The most explosive player in the league in the middle of his prime. Edmonton looks to have a more promising future and are not afraid to make trades to find wingers for Connor.
#2 Nathan MacKinnon (COL, C) AGE: 25.9
Plays on one of the best lines in the league and just as game changing as McDavid. Increase in shots is promising and Colorado has a lot of talent in the pipeline.
#3 David Pastrnak (BOS, RW) AGE: 25.2
First time Rocket Richard winner that can score goals at will. Currently playing on the best line in the NHL combined with a deadly PP means that the sky's the limit.
#4 Leon Draisaitl (EDM, C,LW) AGE: 25.7
Reigning Art Ross winner that has proven himself as an elite player without McDavid.
#5 Auston Matthews (TOR, C) AGE: 23.8
Matthews has one of the best shots in the NHL and has grown into a tremendous all-around player. Injury concerns linger around his shoulder, but he has all the potential to be a future Rocket Richard winner.
#6 Jack Eichel (BUF, C) AGE: 24.7
Eichel is the focal point in Buffalo and he should continue to be a top fantasy player despite a slight drop-off in shots and a 5% increase in S% this past season.
#7 (, ) AGE: 28.1
Missing the entire 2020-21 season drops him a few spots, but look for him to return to MVP form next season.
#8 Artemi Panarin (NYR, LW) AGE: 29.7
Proving his contract worth in his first year in New York with league-leading even strength points. New York has a bright future ahead and Panarin is the centerpiece.
#9 Patrick Kane (CHI, RW) AGE: 32.7
Still one of the best playmakers in the NHL, Kane has not missed a beat and holds one of the highest point ceilings. Being on the wrong side of 30 puts a damper on his value.
#10 Mitchell Marner (TOR, RW) AGE: 24.2
Marner is among the best playmakers in the league and will continue to be a dynamic fantasy player on the star-studded Leafs.
#11 Elias Pettersson (VAN, C) AGE: 22.7
The former Calder winner one-upped his rookie season with an even better one. With Vancouver improving quickly, and Pettersson entering his prime, he should continue to improve on an already promising career.
#12 Sebastian Aho (CAR, C) AGE: 24.0
An improved shot rate (and s%) and the addition of Svechnikov propelled Aho into a bonafide fantasy stud. Expect his goal totals to decrease, but buoyed by an increased assist rate.
#13 Jonathan Huberdeau (FLA, LW) AGE: 28.1
Back-to-back fantastic seasons for Huberdeau has elevated him into top 20 territory where he should continue to remain playing in Florida's offense-driven system.
#14 Brad Marchand (BOS, LW) AGE: 33.2
Marchand is among the league's best in assists, and a fantastic facilitator for Pastrnak and Bergeron, making them one of the best lines in the league.
#15 Sidney Crosby (PIT, C) AGE: 34.0
The best player of his generation has still got it. One knock against him is his durability, but he can be the most dynamic player in the league.
#16 Steven Stamkos (TB, C,LW,RW) AGE: 31.5
Slight injury concerns surround Stamkos, but his lethal shot and his phenomenal line mates make him a threat whenever he is on the ice.
#17 Evgeni Malkin (PIT, C) AGE: 35.0
Malkin has struggled with injuries over his career, has been among the the league leaders (6th) in points per game since 2017-2018.
#18 Aleksander Barkov (FLA, C) AGE: 25.9
A slight decrease in point production from 2018-2019 was accompanied with a below average s% and a higher shot rate. If Barkov can maintain his improved shooting volume, his fantasy value should be fantastic, especially on the high octane Florida offense.
#19 Mikko Rantanen (COL, RW) AGE: 24.7
Part of Colorado's 3-headed monster, Rantanen continued his elite scoring pace despite an injury shortened season. With Colorado's bright future, Rantanen should undoubtedly continue his exceptional play.
#20 Andrei Svechnikov (CAR, LW,RW) AGE: 21.3
Entering his 3rd year, Svechnikov looks to improve on his very promising sophomore year on one of the best lines in the NHL. Improved shots and hit rates give him a good bump in standard Yahoo leagues.
#21 John Tavares (TOR, C) AGE: 30.8
Tavares showcased his ceiling with a 47-goal season a year ago and followed it up with a slight decrease in production. Expect him to hover around a point per game.
#22 Jake Guentzel (PIT, LW,RW) AGE: 26.8
A fantastic 2019-2020 season was unfortunately cut short by a gruesome shoulder injury. Guentzel will continue to put up the points playing on a line with Crosby and the Penguins strong PP.
#23 John Carlson (WAS, D) AGE: 31.5
As a key cog in Washington's powerplay, Carlson is a clear favourite to lead all defensemen in scoring, as he has done so since 2017.
#24 Mika Zibanejad (NYR, C) AGE: 28.3
An 7% increase in S% from 2018-2019 gave him a huge bump in the goal department and he continues to be a prolific shooter. Expect a lower S%, however, with an improving Rangers team around him, Mika should continue to be among the best goal scorers in the NHL.
#25 Patrik Laine (CLS, LW,RW) AGE: 23.3
After a bounce back season, Laine looks to be an improved playmaker and continues to shoot at an alarming rate. Has the ability to be a future Rocket Richard winner.
#26 Mark Scheifele (WPG, C) AGE: 28.4
Finishing up his 4th consecutive year of at least 1 point/game, Scheifele is very consistent. His high S% has been a staple for him since he entered the league, but his limited shot total (he has not eclipsed 200+ shots in a season) caps his goal scoring.
#27 Brayden Point (TB, C,RW) AGE: 25.4
Point regressed from his fantastic 2018-2019 season with a more reasonable PP production and S% (still fairly high). Point lacks the shot volume to be the 40 goal scorer from a season prior, but his role on Tampa gives him a great floor playing alongside Stamkos.
#28 Alex Ovechkin (WAS, LW) AGE: 35.8
Goals. The Great 8 may not be putting up blistering point totals like he used to, but his goal scoring prowess is second to none. His staggering shot and hit totals only amplify his value. His age and contract situation adds uncertainty to his future.
#29 Matthew Tkachuk (CGY, LW,RW) AGE: 23.6
Tkachuk was one of the many players feeling the Calgary hangover in 2019-2020, displaying a decrease is all stats except shot rate. His stats improved immensely after the coaching change. Expect him to bounce back to 2018-2019 production.
#30 Mark Stone (VGK, RW) AGE: 29.2
Stone has developed into one of the best 2-way forwards in the NHL while maintaining fantastic offensive production. He is limited by his shooting volume (he has yet to surpass 200 shots in a season), but he should continue to be a point per game player for the foreseeable future.
#31 Johnny Gaudreau (CGY, LW,RW) AGE: 27.9
A year removed from a 99 point season, Gaudreau suffered from a career low S% (8.6% vs 12.8% prior to 2019-2020). One of the more solid buy-low candidates, but do not expect any hits (league low 1 hit in 70 games).
#32 Victor Hedman (TB, D) AGE: 30.6
Among the most consistent D in the league, Hedman quarterbacks the fantastic Tampa powerplay.
#33 Gabriel Landeskog (COL, C,LW) AGE: 28.7
Landeskog's net front presence is among the best in the league which leads to a lot of tip-ins (13 since 2018, NHL best) and helps create space for MacKinnon and Rantanen to do their thing. He ended the 2019-2020 season on a good note with 18 points in 13 games.
#34 Brady Tkachuk (OTT, LW) AGE: 21.9
Brady's 259 shots and 303 hits in 2019-2020 landed him 8th and 3rd in the league, respectively. No one else in the league shoots and hits as much as he does, making him a unique fantasy player. As he and Ottawa continue to develop, Brady's points should see a nice bump.
#36 J.T. Miller (VAN, C,LW,RW) AGE: 28.4
The 2019-2020 Breakout player of the year had everything line up for him to succeed in Vancouver. With the Canucks improving as a team, Miller should build upon his fantastic breakout year.
#37 Kyle Connor (WPG, LW) AGE: 24.6
Among the league leaders in even strength points, Connor improved on his great sophomore season with 38 goals. If Winnipeg's PP becomes more effective, Connor can be a consistent 40+ goal scorer.
#38 Roman Josi (NSH, D) AGE: 31.1
Josi was the only defenseman to lead their team in scoring in 2019-2020, and he did so by a wide margin. His shot rate is encouraging, and if Nashville can turn around their below average PP, Josi has the chance to be the leading scoring defenseman in the league.
#39 Max Pacioretty (VGK, LW) AGE: 32.7
After two down years, Patches looks to have returned to form in Vegas with a career high shot output.
#40 Blake Wheeler (WPG, C,RW) AGE: 34.9
After an uncharacteristically slow start, Wheeler put up a commendable 35 points in the 34 games in the 2nd half and continues to be one of the best playmakers in the league.
#41 Dylan Larkin (DET, C) AGE: 25.0
Larkin is a textbook case of a great player on a bad team. He has a great shot rate and plays on a very good line. The Red Wings should see an improvement on their historically awful season and Larkin should benefit.
#42 Taylor Hall (BOS, LW) AGE: 29.7
The move to Buffalo was a suprising one, but Hall should find success playing with Eichel. Let's hope his health holds up this season.
#43 Cale Makar (COL, D) AGE: 22.7
Makar had one of the greatest rookie seasons for a defenseman and he should only build off that success.
#44 (, ) AGE: 29.5
Seguin had his worst offensive season in years where he was snake bitten by a 6.9 s% while being 9th in the league in shots. He should miss most of the season, but look to buy-low on him.
#45 Evander Kane (SJ, LW,RW) AGE: 30.0
Kane has been a shooting machine every year in the league and it has finally translated into fantastic PP production. His discipline, or lack thereof, cost him valuable games.
#46 Teuvo Teravainen (CAR, LW,RW) AGE: 26.9
A large uptick in shots and a career-low S% points towards positive regression for Teravainen.
#47 Dougie Hamilton (CAR, D) AGE: 28.1
Hamilton's Norris-caliber season, where he was on pace for about 300 shots and 25 goals (with a career high S%), was unfortunately cut short by an awful leg injury. Expect his goals to decline, but his overall production should put him among the best D-men in the league.
#48 Sean Couturier (PHI, C) AGE: 28.6
Couturier saw a slight drop-off ATOI this season, and as a result, his production took a hit. He should continue to be a consistent 30+ goal, 70+ point player.
#49 Ryan O'Reilly (STL, C) AGE: 30.5
After his lowest goal total since his injured lockout-shortened season, look for O'Reilly to bounce back to his 2018-2019 form with the return of Tarasenko.
#50 William Nylander (TOR, LW,RW) AGE: 25.2
After a disappointing season, Nylander found great success alongside Tavares and on the Leafs top PP. With the Leafs core signed long-term, Nylander has all the tools to continue to improve.
#51 Patrice Bergeron (BOS, C) AGE: 36.0
Injuries have hurt Bergeron's production over the past couple of years, but he remains one of the league's best C. His age is a concern.
#52 Anze Kopitar (LA, C) AGE: 33.9
Consistency has not been Kopitar's strong suit over the past few seasons, but he continues to be a force on the paltry Kings.
#53 Brock Boeser (VAN, RW) AGE: 24.4
Three injury-shortened seasons has put a damper on Boeser's production, but with Vancouver improving as well as they are and the potential to play with Petterson and Miller, Boeser is poised to have his best season yet.
#54 Travis Konecny (PHI, RW) AGE: 24.4
Konecny's production improved in 2019-2020 thanks to a spot on Philiadelphia's top PP. As he continues to develop, Konecny will be one of the most exciting young forwards in the league.
#55 Claude Giroux (PHI, C,LW) AGE: 33.5
Two years removed from a 102-point season, Giroux's production took a nosedive with his ATOI dropping 1:30 from 2018-2019. Age may be catching up to him, but his durability (missed 10 games in 11 seasons) make him a reliable fantasy asset.
#56 Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (EDM, C,LW) AGE: 28.3
RNH has became a very solid fantasy asset playing alongside Draisaitl while being a key piece to the Oilers PP. As long as he is in Edmonton, his production should be maintained.
#57 Quinn Hughes (VAN, D) AGE: 21.8
Quinn Hughes lived up the hype after his monster rookie season leading all rookies in scoring. His elite playmaking launched Vancouver's PP into one of the most effective units in the league. He and Makar will be fighting for the defenseman point lead for many years to come.
#58 Elias Lindholm (CGY, C,RW) AGE: 26.6
Lindholm, like most of Calgary, regressed heavily in 2019-2020. Expect his goal total to drop (career high 17.2 s%) but his assists to bounceback as Calgary returns to form.
#59 Mathew Barzal (NYI, C) AGE: 24.2
The former Calder winner has not been able to match his outstanding rookie season in the past 2 years but look for him to continue improving as his shot rate steadily increases.
#60 Alex Pietrangelo (VGK, D) AGE: 31.5
The move to Vegas may limit his offensive production due to a less concrete role on the PP, but he still remains one of the best D in the league.
#61 Anthony Mantha (WAS, LW,RW) AGE: 26.9
Injury concerns surround Mantha, but his offensive output was phenomenal when healthy. If Detroit can acquire an NHL ready prospect in the 2021 draft, look for their powerplay to have a good boost in production.
#62 Evgeny Kuznetsov (WAS, C) AGE: 29.2
A massive drop in shot rate and being bumped off the top PP at the end of the regular season may spell trouble for Kuzy. Monitor his production and do not be afraid to cut loose.
#63 David Perron (STL, LW,RW) AGE: 33.2
Perron's bread and butter is his powerplay efficiency and he should continue to see good 5v5 deployment with Tarasenko out.
#64 Bryan Rust (PIT, LW,RW) AGE: 29.2
Rust has proven himself to be a top 6 forward after the Penguins were decimated by injuries this past season. His spot beside Malkin should be cemented in place, but his PP deployment may take a large hit next season.
#65 Nicklas Backstrom (WAS, C) AGE: 33.7
One of the most consistent playmakers of his generation will continue to steer one of the most lethal powerplays for the next 4 years.
#66 Erik Karlsson (SJ, D) AGE: 31.1
The former fantasy defenseman king, Karlsson has struggled immensely with injuries the past couple of seasons. Karlsson's best days may be behind him, but his ceiling is undeniably high.
#67 Filip Forsberg (NSH, LW) AGE: 26.9
Forsberg, alongside a myriad of injuries, has seen his production stay stagnant over the past 2 seasons. He should continue to remain consistent, but he has a limited ceiling.
#68 Ryan Strome (NYR, C,RW) AGE: 28.0
Playing with Panarin has revitalized Strome's career, and if he re-signs, he should continue his solid production.
#69 Kevin Fiala (MIN, LW,RW) AGE: 25.0
After a monster breakout in the 2nd half, Fiala looks to be the man in Minnesota. He can quickly climb these rankings, but a larger sample size is needed, especially with his 83% IPP.
#70 Torey Krug (STL, D) AGE: 30.3
The move to St. Louis should not hurt Krug as he will take over for Pietrangelo on their lethal powerplay.
#71 Sean Monahan (CGY, C) AGE: 26.8
Monahan felt the Flames regression the hardest causing him to have his worst year since his rookie season. His shot rate dropped slightly, but his spot as Calgary's top C is safe.
#72 Mike Hoffman (STL, LW,RW) AGE: 31.7
In St. Louis, Hoffman should continue to be a dynamic powerplay threat, similar to when he was on Florida.
#73 Brayden Schenn (STL, C,RW) AGE: 29.9
Schenn has been a solid fantasy contributor every year on the Blues, and with his PP proficiency, he should continue to maintain his production.
#74 Oliver Bjorkstrand (CLS, LW,RW) AGE: 26.3
Bjorkstrand broke out after an injury to Cam Atkinson with 30 points in 30 games. He is among the leaders in 5v5 s/60 and goals/60 and should continue to excel if given the opportunity.
#75 Jonathan Marchessault (VGK, C,LW) AGE: 30.6
Marchessault is one of the most prolific shooters in the NHL and he gets a lot of high-quality chances. The biggest cap on his production is his lackluster powerplay production, which may improve this season.
#76 Victor Olofsson (BUF, LW,RW) AGE: 26.0
Olofsson had a strong showing in his rookie season, particularly on the powerplay. Playing alongside Eichel will only positively impact him.
#77 Morgan Rielly (TOR, D) AGE: 27.4
Injuries plagued Rielly in 2019-2020, resulting in him losing his PP1 spot to Tyson Barrie. Look for a healthy Rielly to regain the coveted PP QB spot next season.
#78 Timo Meier (SJ, LW,RW) AGE: 24.8
Despite the down year, Meier continued to be a great shooter and put up a respectable 49 points in 70 games with limited PP deployment. His output will continue to be capped until his PP situation improves.
#79 Kailer Yamamoto (EDM, RW) AGE: 22.8
Yamamoto was able to perform exceptionally well with Draisaitl and has the potential to explode if given solid PP deployment.
#80 Jakub Vrana (DET, LW) AGE: 25.4
Vrana's 3rd year performance was very compelling as everything seemed to be falling into place for the former top prospect. Unfortunately stuck behind Ovi for the top LW spot, Vrana may continue to find time on the Capitals fantastic powerplay.
#81 Tom Wilson (WAS, RW) AGE: 27.3
Wilson is solid fantasy player that contributes a lot of hits. He will have limited PP deployment on the high-powered Caps.
#82 Rasmus Dahlin (BUF, D) AGE: 21.3
Entering his age 20 season, Dahlin should continue to develop upon his good first 2 seasons in Buffalo. He has the potential to be among the leagues most valuable D-men.
#83 Alex DeBrincat (CHI, LW,RW) AGE: 23.6
DeBrincat saw a massive drop in production accompanied with a 10% drop in s% this past season. He maintained a great shot rate and should bounce back.
#84 Tony DeAngelo (NYR, D) AGE: 25.7
DeAngelo rode a very hot s% on route to a nice 53 points in 68 games in 2019-2020. Expect some regression, but he if remains the main PP D-man in New York, he will continue putting up point totals.
#85 Nikolaj Ehlers (WPG, LW,RW) AGE: 25.4
One of the more productive 5v5 players in the league, Ehlers is limited by his lack of PP deployment. His astronimcal 5v5 IPP of 94% makes him a prime canidate for regression.
#86 Neal Pionk (WPG, D) AGE: 26.0
Pionk took the reigns of the Jets PP1 and performed well. Winnipeg relies heavily on their D on the PP, so if Pionk can retain his PP spot, he will continue to find good success.
#87 Shea Theodore (VGK, D) AGE: 26.0
Theodore shoots at a very high clip and creates a lot of offense for Vegas. If he can step up his PP production, he will be a develop into a massive fantasy threat.
#88 Pierre-Luc Dubois (WPG, C) AGE: 23.1
Entering his 4th season, Dubois can be a prime candidate to break-out playing with a healthy Blue Jackets roster.
#89 Chris Kreider (NYR, LW) AGE: 30.2
Playing with Zibanejad has given Kreider a healthy floor to build off of.
#90 Sam Reinhart (BUF, C,RW) AGE: 25.7
Playing alongside Eichel has given Reinhart a solid floor, but he has yet to really breakout in his first 6 seasons.
#91 Jaden Schwartz (STL, LW) AGE: 29.1
Schwartz bounced back thanks to an improved s% and increased PP deployment. With Tarasenko out again, Schwartz should continue to play PP1.
#92 Thomas Chabot (OTT, D) AGE: 24.5
Chabot was used more in a defensive role last year, and his offensive output suffered. As Ottawa improves, Chabot will have more opportunities to be a driving force in the offense.
#93 Tomas Tatar (MON, LW,RW) AGE: 30.6
Tatar achieved a career high in points despite the shortened season and should continue being 60+ point scorer on Montreal.
#94 Logan Couture (SJ, C) AGE: 32.3
Couture saw massive drop-off in production, as did the Sharks a whole. He should perform better but his large shot rate drop has cause for concern.
#95 Brendan Gallagher (MON, RW) AGE: 29.2
Gallagher is by far the most proficient shooter at 5v5 in the league. He is limited by a lack of PP deployment.
#96 Dominik Kubalik (CHI, LW,RW) AGE: 25.9
Kubalik potted 30 goals in his rookie season with mostly even strength deployment. His 19.1 s% is high but he can maintain his production if given substantial PP time.
#97 Vladimir Tarasenko (STL, RW) AGE: 29.6
Tarasenko underwent his 3rd shoulder surgery on as many years a few months ago. The talent is there, but his elite fantasy production may be over.
#98 Jack Hughes (NJ, C,LW) AGE: 20.2
The 2019 1st overall pick struggled in his rookie season, but he was able to display his potential in spurts. It more of a question of when than if he will break out.
#99 Dylan Strome (CHI, C,RW) AGE: 24.4
With the injury to Toews, Strome will be looked at to step up and play top line and top PP this season. Playing alongside Patrick Kane will only help his fantasy output.
#100 Kris Letang (PIT, D) AGE: 34.2
Letang is getting older and struggled with injuries throughout his career, but when healthy, he is one of the best defensemen in fantasy.
#101 Bo Horvat (VAN, C) AGE: 26.3
A strong shot rate and good PP time gives Horvat a solid floor to build upon.
#102 Tyler Toffoli (MON, LW,RW) AGE: 29.2
Toffoli is a heavy volume shooter that was excelling after his trade to Vancouver. Montreal is known to stiffle fantasy production, but if he can secure a PP1 slot, he should continue to find success.
#103 Clayton Keller (ARI, LW,RW) AGE: 23.0
Arizona's system limits team offence, and Keller is no exception. Expect limited production unless he takes a massive step in his game.
#104 Tyson Barrie (EDM, D) AGE: 30.0
Barrie heading to Edmonton may have been the best scenario for his fantasy production. Look for him to rack up points on the Oilers league leading PP.
#105 Tomas Hertl (SJ, C,LW) AGE: 27.7
Hertl's season was cut short and he saw a large decline in production from team and s% regression. Expect his lower s% to remain, but he should bounceback as the Sharks do as well.
#106 Kirill Kaprizov (MIN, LW,RW) AGE: 24.2
Kaprizov will be bringing over his KHL leading scoring to Minnisota this season and he will make an immediate impact as one of the most exciting prospects in hockey.
#107 Zach Werenski (CLS, D) AGE: 24.0
Werenski led all defence in scoring with a fairly high s%. Expect his goal totals to dip a bit but remain a top Dman with his shot volume.
#108 Kyle Palmieri (NYI, LW,RW) AGE: 30.5
A large decrease in shots and high s% is concerning for a player that relies heavily on PP production to buoy his floor.
#109 William Karlsson (VGK, C) AGE: 28.5
Karlsson may not reach the 43 goals he hit in 2017-2018 again, but he is one of the leagues better playmakers and should keep a solid floor for points. With the departure of Stastny, Karlsson should find himself playing on the Golden Knights top PP.
#110 Robert Thomas (STL, C,RW) AGE: 22.1
In his limited ice-time, Thomas has performed exceptionally well at even strength, but is severely limited by a lack of PP time. If given the more PP opportunity, he is poised for a massive breakout.
#111 Kaapo Kakko (NYR, RW) AGE: 20.4
The 2019 2nd overall pick will be looking to recover from one of the worst rookie seasons in recent memory.
#112 Jakub Voracek (PHI, LW,RW) AGE: 31.9
Voracek's shots, and goals alike, plummeted in 2019-2020. He will continue to be a premier playmaker, but the limited goal output hurts his value.
#113 Jason Zucker (PIT, LW,RW) AGE: 29.5
Zucker found success lining up beside Crosby and played some top PP. It looks like he will play with Malkin this year and the top PP slot is most likely a race between Zucker and Rust.
#114 Charlie McAvoy (BOS, D) AGE: 23.6
With Krug leaving Boston, McAvoy will have the opprotunity to become the QB PP on one of the most effetive powerplays in the league.
#115 (, ) AGE: 19.5
The 2020 #3 overall pick looked fantastic at the World Juniors and is poised to play meaningful minutes on a depleted Ottawa team.
#116 Rickard Rakell (ANH, LW,RW) AGE: 28.2
With Anaheim's offense stagnant, Rakell has yet to come close to his stellar 2017-2018 season. A high steady shot rate points to good things in the future.
#117 Nazem Kadri (COL, C) AGE: 30.8
Kadri played well his first year in Colorado and if he can maintain a spot on the top PP, his production should not take a hit.
#118 Pavel Buchnevich (NYR, RW) AGE: 26.3
Buchnevich set a career high 46 points playing mostly on the Rangers top line. He is gated off from a top PP spot.
#119 Nico Hischier (NJ, C) AGE: 22.5
Entering his 4th year, Hischier has seen his point output decline every year. A reduced shot rate and an increased s% are worrisome, but he is still young and has the talent to turn it around.
#120 Brent Burns (SJ, D) AGE: 36.4
Age is catching up to Burns as all his stats are down across the board. Look to sell.
#121 Evgenii Dadonov (OTT, LW,RW) AGE: 32.4
Dadonov signing in Ottawa should allow him to play top line minutes, but his supporting cast will limit his upside.
#122 Andre Burakovsky (COL, LW,RW) AGE: 26.5
With a lot of injuries to the Colorado forward corps and a 19.4 s%, Burakovsky was able to achieve a career high 45 points. His PP time should plummet when Colorado is fully healthy, but playing top line should give him a solid floor.
#123 Tyler Bertuzzi (DET, LW,RW) AGE: 26.4
Bertuzzi put up a solid 48 points in 71 games on the dreadful Red Wings. An improved shot rate would be nice to see, however, as the team continues to develop and get healthy Bertuzzi should easily exceed his 2019-2020 numbers.
#124 Seth Jones (CLS, D) AGE: 26.8
Jones shot volume and powerplay effectiveness decrease has lowered his production a lot. With Werenski in Columbus, Jones will be limited in his scoring.
#125 Brock Nelson (NYI, C) AGE: 29.8
Nelson had a large jump in shot rate with only a slight increase in s%. If he can keep up his shots, he can flirt with 30 goals.
#126 Viktor Arvidsson (NSH, LW,RW) AGE: 28.3
Arvidsson struggled this past season, as did most of the Predators, and suffered an awful back injury. His shot rate plummeted, but it should bounce back once he returns to full health.
#127 Jamie Benn (DAL, C,LW) AGE: 32.0
Benn put up his worst fantasy season since his rookie season and declined in shot rate the last 2 seasons. Age may have finally caught up to former Art Ross winner.
#128 Reilly Smith (VGK, RW) AGE: 30.3
Smith lacks the PP deployment to be an enticing fantasy asset.
#129 (, ) AGE: 18.9
The 2020 #2 overall pick projects to be a beast in the NHL, but he may be a few years away from substantial deployment.
#130 Nikita Gusev (FLA, LW,RW) AGE: 29.0
Gusev saw very limited ice time in his first year in New Jersey, but still put up a respectable 44 points in 66 games. As NJ improves, Gusev should as well.
#131 Nick Suzuki (MON, C,RW) AGE: 22.0
Suzuki had a strong rookie season, amassing 41 points in 71 games with healthy PP time. If he starts shooting more, he can be a strong breakout candidate.
#132 Anthony Duclair (FLA, LW,RW) AGE: 25.9
The move to Florida and playing alongside Barkov and Huberdeau could result in an explosion of fantasy production from Duclair this season.
#133 Anthony Cirelli (TB, C,RW) AGE: 24.0
Cirelli saw a huge increase in ATOI last season as he was utilized for his two-way play. Expect his ice-time to remain high and his offensive numbers to benefit from it.
#134 Ryan Pulock (NYI, D) AGE: 26.8
Pulock is a consistent source of hits and blocks with offensive upside. With the departure of Devon Toews, Pulock should have the reigns to the PP1.
#135 Miro Heiskanen (DAL, D) AGE: 22.0
Heiskanen made strides in his offensive game with an improved shot rate and more PP time. With Klingberg sturggling, watch for Heiskanen to take over the PP1 duties in Dallas.
#137 Max Domi (CLS, C,LW) AGE: 26.4
Domi saw a large drop-off in points mainly attributed to a lower s% and marginal decrease in assists. He should hover around 60 points.
#138 Patric Hornqvist (FLA, RW) AGE: 34.6
Hornqvist is an elite volume shooter that takes a lot of high-quality chances. The move to Florida should see him play alongside Barkov and Huberdeau on the PP1.
#139 Ryan Ellis (NSH, D) AGE: 30.6
With Josi in the mix in Nashville, Ellis will have limited PP exposure.
#140 Oskar Lindblom (PHI, LW) AGE: 24.9
Lindblom is officially cancer free (yay!) and will be looking to grow on his early success from the 2019-2020 season.
#141 John Klingberg (DAL, D) AGE: 28.9
Dallas has struggled with scoring the past 2 seasons and Klingberg has felt it a lot. His shot rate dropped-off and he struggled with injuries. With Heiskanen in the mix, I do not want to target any Dallas D-man.
#142 Anders Lee (NYI, LW) AGE: 31.1
Lee has seen a dropoff in production since Tavares left the Islanders after teh 2017-2018 season, but he has maintained a great shot rate. He may not hit 40 goals again, but 30 is well within the realm of possibility.
#143 Vince Dunn (STL, D) AGE: 24.7
The departure of Pietrangelo was a good sign for Dunn, but the addition of Krug stiffles all hope for PP1.
#144 Jeff Skinner (BUF, LW) AGE: 29.2
Skinner saw a significant decline in production, and that can attributed to reduced ice-time with Eichel. The singing of Hall may have prevented a reunion.
#145 Jake DeBrusk (BOS, LW,RW) AGE: 24.8
Debrusk was unable to capitalize playing on the Bruins lethal PP this season, but should continue to get plenty of time on it.
#146 Alex Killorn (TB, LW,RW) AGE: 31.9
Despite the shortened season, Killorn put up a career high in points, elevated by an astronmical 20 s%. Expect his goals to take a large hit next season.
#147 Matt Duchene (NSH, C,RW) AGE: 30.5
Since the trade from Ottawa 2 year ago Duchene has been underwhelming with poor point and shot rates.
#148 Conor Garland (ARI, LW,RW) AGE: 25.4
Garland put up a pedestrian 39 points in 68 games in his sophmore season but showed very promising results with limited PP1 time. His strong shot rate is promising.
#149 Jonathan Drouin (MON, C,LW) AGE: 26.3
It was a forgetable year for the former 3rd overall pick after an injury caused him to miss half the season, but expect him to bounceback closer to his pre-injury production where he scored 15 points in 19 games.
#150 Ivan Provorov (PHI, D) AGE: 24.5
Provorov bounced back from his underwhelming 2018-2019 season after he was gifted top PP on the Flyers and performed well. If he can keep the PP1 QB role, Provorov will continue to find success.
#151 Aaron Ekblad (FLA, D) AGE: 25.5
Ekblad has been a consistent scorer since entering the league, but has had his production highly limited by Keith Yandle. If Ekblad can overtakethe PP QB slot, look for him to break his career high in points.
#152 Adam Fox (NYR, D) AGE: 23.4
Fox had a phenomenal rookie season in New York, but his PP deployment is in question with DeAngelo in New York.
#153 Roope Hintz (DAL, C,LW) AGE: 24.7
Hintz scored a pedestrian 33 points in 60 games last season on the offensively-inept Stars. With the injury to Seguin, Hintz should have a more defined role in the offense and powerplay this season.
#154 Trevor Zegras (ANH, C,LW) AGE: 20.3
Zegras tore up the World Juniors, setting the record for most points by an American player. Zegras should see some time in Anaheim this season, and hopefully he can continue his exceptional play.
#155 (, ) AGE: 33.2
With the unfortunate news about Toews illness, his career may in jeopardy.
#156 Vincent Trocheck (CAR, C) AGE: 28.0
Trocheck found most of his success (mostly 2017-2018) on the PP with Florida, but that may be long and gone following his trade to Carolina.
#157 Zach Hyman (TOR, C,LW,RW) AGE: 29.1
Hyman's 19.8 s% lead the way to a career high 21 goals in just 51 games. He plays on a strong line Toronto but expect a more reasonable s% in the future.
#158 Mikhail Sergachev (TB, D) AGE: 23.1
Sergachev's point upside will be limited with Hedman in Tampa Bay, but his offensive upside gives him a solid floor with a high ceiling.
#159 Matt Dumba (MIN, D) AGE: 27.0
Dumba all of stats decline last season, but early signs suggest that he will play PP1, giving him an opprotunity to succeed
#160 Colton Parayko (STL, D) AGE: 28.2
Parayko has a rocket of a shot and likes to throw the body around. His PP time with be limited, but St. Louis will rely on him to play heavy minutes this season.
#161 Jacob Trouba (NYR, D) AGE: 27.4
Trouba saw his point production dwindle as he lost the PP QB spot to DeAngelo. He will have limited point upside but be among the most prolific shooters and hitters in the back end.
#162 Denis Gurianov (DAL, LW,RW) AGE: 24.1
Gurianov had a solid playoff performance and is slated to play PP1 and top line with Dallas this season.
#163 Adam Boqvist (CHI, D) AGE: 20.9
Boqvist is walled off by Keith from the top PP on Chicago, but his talent makes him a very enticing player if he can get that spot.
#164 Cam Atkinson (CLS, RW) AGE: 32.1
Atkinson maintained his strong shot rate but saw massive drops in every other stat along with an injury. He should rebound, but there is a low chance he gets anywhere close to his 41 goals in the 2018-2019 season.
#165 Darnell Nurse (EDM, D) AGE: 26.5
Nurse is another case of a D-man losing precious PP time and seeing their points suffer (only slightly in this case) because of it. Without top PP in Edmonton, Nurse will have limited offensive upside but he will continue to shoot and hit like a beast.
#166 Anthony Beauvillier (NYI, LW) AGE: 24.1
Increased icetime for Beauvillier sparked his career high in points. As he enters his age 23 season, Beauvillier is a potential sleeper pick.
#167 Dylan Cozens (BUF, C,RW) AGE: 20.4
Cozens played well at the World Juniors, but he may need to wait a season before making an impact on Buffalo and their solid top 6.
#168 Filip Zadina (DET, LW,RW) AGE: 21.7
The former 6th overall pick played only 28 games in 2018-2019 and put up a respectable 15 points in that period. He has sky-high potential and can be a leading force on a histroically bad Red Wings team.
#169 Andreas Athanasiou (LA, LW,RW) AGE: 27.0
Athanasiou struggled on both Detroit and Edmonton this past season, posting the worst +/- in the league. If he can bring his shot pace back up to 2018-2019 level (2.84 shots/game) he is set for a nice bounce back.
#170 Tanner Pearson (VAN, LW) AGE: 29.0
After playing on 3 teams a season ago, Pearson found a home in Voncouver setting a career high in points on a line with Bo Horvat. His PP time will be limited, but expect him to put up similar numbers.
#171 Joel Armia (MON, LW,RW) AGE: 28.1
Armia set a career high in goals and points while maintaining a very strong shot and hit rate. His fantasy upside is lmited, but he has a very solid floor.
#172 Kevin Labanc (SJ, LW,RW) AGE: 25.6
Labanc took a massive step back from his breakout 2018-19 season after his powerplay production disappeared. He increased his shot rate and played on the top PP, so expect Labanc to recover as the Sharks bounceback from their awful season.
#173 Filip Hronek (DET, D) AGE: 23.7
Hronek carries decent shots and hits from and is a PP QB. Look for him to improve as Detroit completes its rebuild.
#174 Martin Necas (CAR, C,RW) AGE: 22.5
the 2017 12th overall pick had an encouraging showing in his rookie season with 36 points in 64 games while being limited to bottom 6 minutes. Expect his role to expand as he develops in the coming seasons.
#175 Ondrej Palat (TB, LW) AGE: 30.3
Palat has been a consistent 45-55 point player since 2015-2016 and there is no sign that he will fall of that pace any time soon.
#176 Keith Yandle (FLA, D) AGE: 34.9
Yandle will continue to be a strong points contributor as he QBs the dangereous Florida PP.
#177 Drew Doughty (LA, D) AGE: 31.6
Doughty's production fell off the last 2 seasons as is looks like the former Norris winner has seen his best seasons pass. He still remains one of the Kings best options on offence.
#178 (, ) AGE: 28.0
Klefbom is out for the season, but he may be a sneaky hold if he can take back the PP QB spot once he comes back next season.
#179 Drake Batherson (OTT, RW) AGE: 23.2
Batherson has dominated the AHL the past 2 season and has seen very limited NHL time in that period. With Batherson slated to make the team out of camp next season, hopefully he can carry over his AHL success.
#180 Mark Giordano (CGY, D) AGE: 37.8
A year removed from a Norris, Giordano enters his age 37 season after a massive dropoff in all stats. At his age, it is hard to see him being a pivotal fantasy force.
#181 Alex Iafallo (LA, LW) AGE: 27.6
#182 Jordan Eberle (NYI, RW) AGE: 31.2
#183 T.J. Oshie (WAS, RW) AGE: 34.6
#184 Noah Dobson (NYI, D) AGE: 21.5
#185 Phil Kessel (ARI, RW) AGE: 33.8
#186 Ryan Johansen (NSH, C) AGE: 29.0
#187 Samuel Girard (COL, D) AGE: 23.2
#188 James van Riemsdyk (PHI, LW) AGE: 32.2
#189 Oliver Ekman-Larsson (ARI, D) AGE: 30.0
#190 James Neal (EDM, LW,RW) AGE: 33.9
#191 Shea Weber (MON, D) AGE: 35.9
#192 Jake Virtanen (VAN, RW) AGE: 24.9
#193 Kevin Hayes (PHI, C) AGE: 29.2
#194 Jeff Petry (MON, D) AGE: 33.6
#195 Ryan Suter (MIN, D) AGE: 36.5
#196 Rasmus Ristolainen (BUF, D) AGE: 26.7
#197 Jared Spurgeon (MIN, D) AGE: 31.6
#198 Jakob Silfverberg (ANH, RW) AGE: 30.8
#199 Jared McCann (PIT, C,LW) AGE: 25.1
#200 Ryan Getzlaf (ANH, C) AGE: 36.2
