The Top 215 Keeper League Fantasy Hockey Prospects - June 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.

Key
o = offensive
t = two-way
p = power forward
d = defenseman
os = offensive (small player)

Samuel Morin?
#33 Habs4 2015-06-30 13:13
When are you gonna update the list with the new drafted players? I'm excited to see Drouin's new rank.
#32 Team OMarica 2015-06-15 11:08
What's with all the negativity on here??? Solid list! After the top few everything is a crapshoot that is dependent on a lot of variables. "Where is _____, he should be on this list cause he plays for my favourite team the _______. Make your own prospect list and website!
#31 Dobber 2015-06-11 20:02
Quoting Princeton:

Pulkkinen for example lit up the AHL, produced decently in his stints in the show and slayed the AHL playoffs. And his coach from that team just got promoted. Bjorkstrand is another.
These two are a ways off, I think around 30th is fine. Remember, +/- 5.0 RATING points is considered equal. So on my list it could be argued that they are 20th.

Quote:

On the other end Morin, Grigorenko, McCann, Laughton, Milano, Drouin Reinhart are way too highly ranked.
This shouldn't be a where were they drafted list but how have they produced lately.
I generally don't knee-jerk. I think you're right about Morin and Laughton - but points have to be given for 'certainty' - they're obviously guaranteed NHLers. Drouin is the top prospect here, I don't think many would disagree just because of mediocre rookie results. McCann is coming off an elite season.

I have often quoted and defended these rankings. However i am agreeing less and less with them as of late.

Some of these players are ranked wayyyyy too high while the likes of some others are sooo low.

ex. Pulkkinen for example lit up the AHL, produced decently in his stints in the show and slayed the AHL playoffs. And his coach from that team just got promoted. Bjorkstrand is another.

On the other end Morin, Grigorenko, McCann, Laughton, Milano, Drouin Reinhart are way too highly ranked.

This shouldn't be a where were they drafted list but how have they produced lately.

Not trying to be critical but some of these lok like Kirill Kabanov all over again.
#29 number54 2015-05-06 15:51
I'm actually really happy with this list; seems to favor those "swingin' for the fences" type prospects more than I've seen here previously. For instance, some might have put Dano ahead of Bjorkstrand, since Dano's already looked good at the NHL level. I'm wondering whether you tweaked any parameters for this, or did it this just come out in the wash?
#28 Millhouse 2015-04-19 20:05
Samuel Morin and Bryan Dumoulin. Neither is listed. Where would they rank and what upside do you see with them
#27 philatangy 2015-04-13 11:49
Would Mike Reilly be on this list if he was signed by a team for next season (which he undoubtedly will be), or is it dependent on where he signs?

Also, I'd like to hear some thoughts on Steve Moses. Is he a worthwhile prospect?
#26 Dobber 2015-03-10 12:28
Quoting tremblay11:
Wow...Mike Hoffman should be much higher than #58. He is leading rookies in goal scoring. And that's all with about 13min of ice time. I understand that he wasn't even on the map last year but his skillset is more fantasy worthy. I would think he is now ahead of Mark Stone on the list. That's a good comparable because they play for the same team.


He was on the map last year. I was wondering why his own scouts had him projected as a third liner, because he did so well in lower leagues. I've been holding him down for that reason, not because of my own opinion. But it's clear now that he has shattered out of his pigeonhole and belongs on a scoring line.
