In this week’s Eastern Edge, we’ll rank goalies from the Eastern Conference, based on their fantasy hockey value this year. To make this list, I considered the save percentage (SV%), goals against average (GAA) and wins (W) from goalies that appeared in at least 25 games this year.

Out of sight, out of mind – that’s the theme for this week’s Injury Ward. During the course of a season, many players miss a significant number of games due to injury. This tends to hinder their point totals, ultimately causing their offensive production to look less impressive when compared to fellow athletes. If a [...]
