Top 50 Fantasy Hockey Goalie Prospects – Spring 2017

by Dobber on March 21, 2017 | (8 Comments)

The Spring edition of my Top 50 goaltenders to own in fantasy hockey keeper leagues

 

These were pulled directly from my overall Top 100 list (you'll see this list posted Wednesday). Considers depth chart, organizational value, performance, and NHL wait time (the main reason why top skilled goalies can be ranked low, while weaker goalies who are on the cusp of possibly getting a look are ranked higher). Consider tiered goalies equal in value.

    No Cal Petersen?

  • sbnanni

    Calvin Pickard?

    • Dobber

      He was NO.2 but he played 77 games so I removed him

      • Matthew

        Dobber, I love these articles, but could we specify in the body the age/ games played limit for when they graduate from this list?

      • Dobber

        Thanks!
        No age limit (Koskinen and Johanssen I believe are pushing 30)
        No games played limit – I just need to be satisfied that they won’t be sent back down. Satisfied 100% (i.e. what if WPG signs a big goalie FA this summer to give Helle some more seasoning?)

  • Marc-Olivier Fortier

    Sorokin has been lights-out amazing in the KHL for the past 3 seasons. Is his contract in the KHL (signed till April 2018) the reason he isn’t ranked higher? If so, where would he rank on this list if he was currently playing in NA?

    • Dobber

      Yes. He’s Tier 5 and if he were in the AHL he’d be Tier 4

      • Marc-Olivier Fortier

        Tier 4 Ville Husso or Tier 4 Laurent Brossoit?
