Announcement: The Fantasy Prospects Report (13th Edition) will be released this Friday (June 12)!

The Draft is likely happening in October after the 24-team playoffs that is forthcoming, so instead of posting an update as per usual in late June with a Mock Draft, I will post this update in October. Whenever the draft order is set, then we will update the Fantasy Prospects Report.

Announcement II: The FPR and all the usual packages are now available for pre-sale in the shop. For the very first time, I have launched subscription plans. Platinum, Gold and Silver plans, or you can just buy the Guide or the Packages as per usual. Up to you! The subscriptions plans expire every May 15 and are automatically charged – it saves you the hassle of going through the buying process each year, and instead the documents will be waiting for you in your downloads as soon as they are released. As an added incentive, the Gold subscription is a couple of bucks cheaper than its equivalent package (Ultimate). Thank you everyone for your support through these difficult times.

As you know, the NHL has officially ended the season and announced plans for playoff hockey involving 24 teams. Just over a week ago, in case you missed it, Ian wrote up an article digging into how commissioners should handle things in fantasy leagues.

This week I decided to look at some per-60 stats, and I wanted to see them based on recency. I'm not interested in full-season numbers, I'd like to see how things are trending after everyone has settled in. The coach has the players he trusts, the line combos have stabilized, players fit in with new teams, etc. As always, a trip to Frozen Tools is in order. The Report Generator. And I filtered it by date after December 31. So these are 2020 numbers. I also set a minimum games played of 10, so we don't get any prospects who played three shifts, got an assist, and thus have a Pts/60 of a thousand or whatever.

First, points per 60 minutes played.
