by Dobber on April 18, 2017 | (6 Comments)

 

Here are the Top 200 forward prospects to own in your fantasy hockey keeper league. Factors include position in the depth chart, upside, likelihood of making the NHL, wait time (how long he'll be hogging a spot on your reserve roster before finally helping your team), and team investment (draft spot, or assets given up in a trade, etc). Type: offense, offensive-small, power forward, two-way.

Top 50 defensemen will be up tomorrow.

  • Jordan Sanders

    Wondering why Alexander Khokhlachev seems to be rising month by month. Is this based on performance in the KHL or suspicions of his return to the NHL?

  • Oilers rock 99

    Curious is you forgot about tanner kero (CHI) or if in fact you don’t think he should be in this list??

    • Dobber

      He’s at 231 but I honestly missed him, I should have adjusted his variables. I made the changes now and next month he should be in the Top 175

      • Oilers rock 99

        Ok thx
        But have to be honest and say I think that is a bit low still as the hawks are always in cap trouble I see him getting more opportunities that a guy with similar skill set would get.

      • Dobber

        I wouldn’t rule that out, you could be right. But I won’t be drafting him this summer (15 teams, full keeper, 35 players per team)

      • Oilers rock 99

        Guess depending on you scoring format
        He has duel C/Rw on fantrax which is what we use and his muilty category stats are good too averaging a hit and block plus dud well in playoff faceoffs centering kane and panarin
        You may want to take this guy as a dark horse he is the next cam Atkinson…:)
