The DobberHockey Panel: 18-19 Predictions — Part 2

by Mario Prata on October 3, 2018

With the NHL regular season starting tonight, here is Part 2 of our Expert 2018-19 Predictions.

Every season our experts band together to make predictions on the individual awards: top scorers, top defensemen, top goalies, and more. And even if we get together once again in April just before the playoffs, when we revisit our selection, we also take an early stab at the upcoming campaign's eventual Stanley Cup winner. To complete the picture, you can also check out yesterday's Part 1, where we focused on some fantasy hockey predictions.

Follow along below and be sure to look for our Consensus log on the last row, as well:
