Fantasy Hockey Geek makes its return with the top-five ranked goalies from the past season!

Fantasy Hockey Geek is back! And even though it’s still summer (and the fantasy season is still several weeks away), I’ll be here with my trusty Fantasy Hockey Geek tool giving you every possible advantage for your fantasy pool. To kick off the column, I thought it would be cool to take a look at the best performers from last season, analyzing their impact on your team and in the fantasy hockey realm. So this week, I’ll be taking a look at who were the best goalies from last season.

To start, we’ll be basing our judgements on a standard 12-team H2H Yahoo league measuring wins, save percentage, goals against average, and shutouts. From this, there were two goalies who absolutely dominated compared to the rest of the competition, outscoring their peers by a crazy amount of Fantasy Hockey Geek points. And after these two goalies, there were another three goalies that stood above the others, forming a total group of five key goalies that provided a lot of fantasy value throughout the season.
