Welcome to the biggest season of ESPN fantasy hockey ever!

We weren't kidding about that, by the way, as the 2021-22 NHL season features the debut of the NHL's 32nd franchise, the Seattle Kraken. Whether you're a seasoned drafting pro, putting together a league with your buddies, or trying it out for the first time, you can find our fantasy hockey draft rankings below.

These rankings reflect the default H2H Points scoring settings below, but you are free to play any style of league you want, H2H Categories, Roto, and more. Additionally, your league manager can set your own unique roster and scoring settings, for those looking for a challenge. If you want to keep your stars like the Tampa Bay Lightning, a fantasy hockey dynasty league is a great fit. For more on how to play fantasy hockey, check out our rules page here. And don't forget, you can draft your team, whether that's snake draft or salary cap draft, anywhere you get an internet connection, on desktop or on the ESPN Fantasy app, available on the App Store and Google Play.

Additionally, as training camps open and we get closer to opening night, keep this site bookmarked for a lineup of content from fantasy analysts Victoria Matiash, Sean Allen, and more. We'll have you prepared with all the top ranked defensemen like Dougie Hamilton, standout goalies like Marc-Andre Fleury, impact rookies, and power play contributors as the NHL season takes shape.
