Boston Bruins

Having one of the best top lines in hockey, the Bruins had all three guys hit a 100 point pace and proved to be top fantasy hockey players. The drop off from the top three was noticeable, but potential is there for a few of the younger players to be fantasy relevant.

Buffalo Sabres

This young core showed flashes of top level production in fantasy hockey. Outside of the top five guys, it’ll be tough to find consistent fantasy production. There are some potential deep league options to keep your eye on.

Detroit Red Wings

One of the more intriguing teams this year, Detroit could have a couple top talent out producing last years totals. Unfortunately, the team isn’t very deep. The top players are the only ones worth taking in most fantasy hockey leagues.

Florida Panthers

This team was full of great fantasy hockey options. Florida had five 20 goal scorers, three double digit power play goal scorers, and their top five point producers all played the entire season. That’s a lot of chemistry that was built up, expect a similar dominant season from this team.

Aleksander Barkov

2019 stats – 82 Games / 35 G / 61 A / 96 pts / -3 / 31 PPP / 206 SOG / 28 Hits / 61 blocks

Montreal Canadiens

There isn’t one overly dominate fantasy hockey option in Montreal, but there are more then a few options to choose from for the mid rounds. All of them worth rostering on your fantasy hockey team. Definitely

Ottawa Senators

The shortest list in the division, Ottawa is going to be tough to rely on for any fantasy hockey production. The pickings are slim and you can probably find similar production elsewhere.

Tampa Bay Lightning

One of the more dominant teams in recent history, the Lightning had three 40 goal scorers also put up over 90 points each. A dominant core that will be playing together for a few more years, elite fantasy hockey production could be on the horizon again.

Toronto Maple Leafs

Three 90 point potential players, two 60 point potential defenseman and a solid goaltender make Toronto a prime choice to grab early round players in your fantasy hockey drafts. Their middle six crew has some fantasy hockey potential too, definitely worth keeping an eye on them for the later rounds.
