Puckheads … it’s time.
Time to gather your friends and rivals for a league. Time to check your keepers. Time to organize your draft board. Time to think of the pun that will make your team name the Stanley Cup champion of euphemisms.
In celebration of this harbinger of the hockey season, we’re proud to release the Yahoo Sports 2015-16 Fantasy Hockey Top 100 Player Ranking, including the position eligibility for each player.
(The C/RW eligibility for Malkin always brings a happy single tear to our eyes.)
Connor McDavid makes his fantasy debut at No. 42 … ahead of Taylor Hall!
Right outside of the Top 100 are Jake Allen of the St. Louis Blues (101), Mike Green of the Detroit Red Wings (still weird to read … oh, and No. 102) and Buffalo Sabres rookie savior Jack Eichel (103).
A few more names of note: Jeff Carter of the Los Angeles Kings at No. 112; Milan Lucic of the Los Angeles Kings at No. 137; Thomas Vanek of the Minnesota Wild at No. 141; Jaromir Jagr of the Florida Panthers at No. 167; and Alex Semin of the Montreal Canadiens at No. 292.
Rejoice, fans, for fantasy hockey has returned!
(Which means actual hockey is soon to follow …)
