2022-23 ESPN Fantasy Hockey rankings

No surprise at the top, Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers is the top ranked player in fantasy hockey. Curtis Comeau/Icon Sportswire

With the biggest free agent signings and trades completed so far in the offseason, it's time to put our attention towards next season, and the players that will make up our first round stars, mid-round picks, and late-round gambles.

While many line combinations and goalie splits around the NHL landscape are still to be decided, next season's top picks won't look that different from the last. Want Hart Trophy winner Auston Matthews or Vezina Trophy winner Igor Shesterkin? Well, you're going need a top pick or pay up in a salary cap draft.

So refresh your fantasy hockey logins, reactivate your leagues, and get your NHL pools ready, draft day will be here before you know it.

Create your team, reactivate your league, and more, right here.

Rankings are based on a standard league of 10 teams consisting of 23 players and a points-based scoring system. In a "Points League," every action by a player can result in points on their fantasy score, including hits, blocked shots, saves, and obviously goals.

What is the fantasy hockey points scoring system?

Players receive two points for a goal, one for an assist, .1 for a shot on goal, .1 for a hit, .5 for a blocked shot, and a .5 bonus each for power play or shorthanded points. For goalies, they receive four points for a win, three for a shutout, one for an overtime loss, .2 for a save, and lose two points for ever goal given up.
