Dobber counts down his Top 10 candidates for the 2014-15 Calder Trophy…
Last week I took a look at players 20 through 11 (the full Top 50 can be found in my ninth annual Fantasy Hockey Guide). Generally, my Calder List gets re-vamped in late September so expect changes to that chart. This is due to some prospects unexpectedly getting cut, or on the flip side – unexpectedly making the team. Fantasy hockey is very fluid and I try to capture that as best I can with the Guide updates.
Before we get to the Top 10, I’ll take the preview a little further and provide you with (just the names) players 32 through 21…
32. Max Domi, Arizona
31. Jason Akeson, Philadelphia
30. Brandon Gormley, Arizona
29. Derrick Pouliot, Pittsburgh
28. Andre Burakovsky, Washington
27. Henrik Samuelsson, Arizona
26. Bo Horvat, Vancouver
25. Linden Vey, Vancouver
24. Scott Laughton, Philadelphia
23. Calle Jarnkrok, Nashville
22. Anthony Mantha, Detroit
21. Kevin Hayes, NY Rangers
As I noted, fantasy hockey is fluid. I already see players I would move around just based on prospect camps and further information (for example, I will be bumping Domi, Pouliot and Mantha up a few slots).
