Top 200 | C | LW | RW | D | G

The rankings apply to standard-scoring leagues. Skaters accumulate value via goals, assists, plus/minus, penalty minutes, power-play points, and shots on goal. Goalies track wins, goals-against average, save percentage and shutouts.

Rank Player Position Team
1 Alex Ovechkin LW/RW WAS
2 Jamie Benn LW DAL
3 Johnny Gaudreau LW CGY
4 Evgeny Kuznetsov C/LW WAS
5 Filip Forsberg C/LW/RW NAS
6 Joe Pavelski C/LW/RW SJ
7 Taylor Hall LW NJ
8 Brad Marchand LW BOS
9 Tyler Toffoli C/LW/RW LA
10 Max Pacioretty LW MTL
11 Artemi Panarin LW CHI
12 Wayne Simmonds LW/RW PHI

Hall moves to a significantly less crowded forward corps in New Jersey, where he should be leaned on more heavily than he was being used this past season in Edmonton. He should push for close to 300 shots on goal. Expect some regression from Panarin, after he scored on 16 percent of his SOG in his rookie year.

Rank Player Position Team
13 Jakub Voracek LW/RW PHI
14 Logan Couture C/LW SJ
15 James Neal LW/RW NAS
16 Ryan O'Reilly C/LW/RW BUF
17 Jonathan Huberdeau C/LW CGY
18 Daniel Sedin LW VAN
19 Zach Parise LW MIN
20 Milan Lucic LW EDM
21 Alexander Steen C/LW STL
22 Patrick Sharp LW/RW DAL
23 Gabriel Landeskog LW COL
24 Brayden Schenn C/LW PHI

Voracek suffered a substantial drop in points last year as a result of shooting just over five percent. A return to his 10 percent success rate from the previous season will prop up his point total substantially. Sedin will have his typically lofty workload in an otherwise unappealing Canucks offense.

Rank Player Position Team
25 Alex Galchenyuk C/LW MTL
26 Mike Hoffman LW OTT
27 Andrew Ladd LW NYI
28 Jonathan Drouin LW TB
29 Dylan Larkin C/LW DET
30 Patrik Laine LW/RW WPG
31 Rick Nash LW/RW NYR
32 Henrik Zetterberg C/LW DET
33 Jeff Skinner LW/RW CAR
34 Brandon Saad LW/RW CLB
35 Tomas Hertl C/LW SJ
36 Loui Eriksson LW/RW VAN
37 Jaden Schwartz LW STL
38 Bobby Ryan LW/RW OTT
39 Max Domi C/LW ARI
40 James van Riemsdyk LW TOR
41 Ondrej Palat LW TB
42 Kyle Palmieri LW/RW NJ
43 Nikolaj Ehlers LW/RW WPG
44 Michael Cammalleri C/LW NJ
45 Mats Zuccarello LW/RW NYR
46 Teuvo Teravainen LW CAR
47 Jussi Jokinen C/LW/RW FLA
48 Mikkel Boedker LW/RW SJ
49 Andre Burakovsky LW WAS
50 Anthony Duclair LW/RW ARI
51 Evander Kane LW BUF
52 Carl Hagelin LW PIT
53 Alex Killorn C/LW TB
54 Chris Kreider LW NYR
55 Tanner Pearson LW LA
56 Ryan Spooner C/LW BOS
57 Brandon Dubinsky C/LW CLB
58 Chris Kunitz LW PIT
59 Nick Foligno C/LW CLB
60 Patrick Marleau C/LW SJ

The loss of D P.K. Subban will be felt throughout the Canadiens lineup, but a full year playing center with Pacioretty could support Galchenyuk's stats. He could see some playing time with RW Alexander Radulov as well. MacArthur is played in just four games last season, missing 78 due to concussion symptoms. He tallied 24 goals and 55 points in his most recent full season.
