The Top 215 Keeper League Fantasy Hockey Prospects - January edition

 

 

 

Here is the list of Top 215 prospects to own in your deep fantasy pool. This is not a reflection of a player’s actual upside in the NHL, but more of an indicator of his value in pools. It takes into account how many years away from the NHL a player is, as well as his upside. A potential 70-point player who is two years away is more valuable than a potential 80-point player who is four years away. Hockey pools with 300 or more players drafted should have most of the top 50 on the below list on one of the teams. Pools that are even deeper than that, may find some use in the rest of this list. Pools with 250 players may find use in only the top 20 or 30.As with the Fantasy Player list – these players are evaluated only for their offensive potential, and not for their penalty minutes, plus/minus or defense, etc. Goalies are not included in this list either.

 

My Prospect Ratings are NOT the same as my Fantasy Ratings, although Fantasy Ratings are taken into account. The term 'prospect' is simply my opinion, and I followed no rules to say whether or not the player is actually a prospect other than age (under 27), and the player must belong to an NHL team.

Updated the 10th, of every month.

o = offensive
t = two-way

I see that Matt Fraser is still listed as a member of the Bruins. Does his ranking take into account that he's in Edmonton now?
#14 thegutter 2015-01-13 17:39
is tomas tatar not in the top 300 because he's not that good or because he's not a prospect?
#13 STONE. 2015-01-13 13:19
A bit surprised to see Brett Ritchie not climb a bit with his promotion and immediate production.
#12 number54 2014-12-05 20:04
Just throwing out a guess: Forsberg & Kucherov graduate next week. And why not Gaudreau, too, while I'm at it?
#11 mvp23 2014-10-25 18:02
Madison Bowey needs to be on this list. He is a lock for Team Canada.
#10 Nifty Mittens 2014-10-12 13:27
Wheres Dano?
#9 SG 2014-10-10 19:34
Man, Morrissey is criminally underrated on that list.
#8 Dobber 2014-09-10 20:41
Re: DeAngelo - I am absolutely certain that when the calendar flips to 2017, DeAngelo will have exactly 0 NHL games under his belt. Let's not go nutty because of his draft position and upside. He's in the Top 50 and I'm happy with him there.
#7 RangerFan 2014-09-09 02:20
I think Shayne Gostisbehere should be on in the top 30 list for Dmen. He is close to contributing (1 year at the most) and Flyers don't exactly have many other options on D.
#6 Rangers0035 2014-08-14 19:05
Deangelo not on the list has to be an oversight, no? He was the best option in the guide and now there are 3 other Dmen ahead of him in a pts only format from this draft class? What changed from when the guide was printed til now?
