The Fantasy Prospects Report is ready for download! Get a leg up on your competition by researching the most suitable prospects to target in your league. You have your usual list of top 50 skaters, top 25 goalies, team-by-team prospect listings, and a special 2019 draft section with draft-eligible player profiles. Great work by the Dobber Prospects crew.

There’s a new look to the team sections here, with a summary box with the top prospect, boom/bust, long-term project, top sniper, best setup man, and most fantasy upside by forward, defense, goalie, points-only, and multicategory listed for each team.

If you’re looking for a mock draft, it will be ready by June 12 along with other updates. And to check out Cam’s mock draft, you’ll need to purchase a copy.

The Fantasy Prospects Report is an important tool as I plan the upcoming season in my keeper league. The FPR has helped me obtain the top prospect for four different NHL teams, even though I haven’t been able to make a high entry draft pick in my league (the price of success) these past few seasons. So if you’re not in a position to draft Jack Hughes or Kappo Kaako in your keeper pool, then the FPR will help you target suitable prospects relative to the size of your league. Even if you are in a position to draft Hughes or Kaako, go purchase a copy anyway because you might have to think about drafting more.

Bergeron assisted on two more goals to give him a three-point game. Any thoughts that Bergeron is injured to the point where he would be a non-factor in this series have quickly been put to rest. After all, would he have also delivered three hits in this game if he was battling something that serious?

Charlie Coyle put the Bruins up 2-0 later in the first period with his eighth goal of the playoffs and his second goal of the series. Coyle also added an assist for a two-point game. After being traded from Minnesota, Coyle scored just two goals and six points in 21 games, so he was probabl
