Top 200 Fantasy Hockey Prospects – April 2018

by Dobber on April 17, 2018

Here are the Top 200 prospect forwards to own your fantasy hockey keeper league - April edition!

Takes into account several aspects - each one is very important and how you prioritize them for your fantasy squad depends on your current needs (long-term, high upside or short-term, NHL-ready, lower ceiling). As always, two players within +/-5.0 rating points of each other should be considered equal value and at that point comes down to team needs or personal preference. Below the chart are the prospects I have graduated over the past two months.

    What’s your prediction on tolvanen’s point production next year?

  • horseflyhab

    Borgstrom moves into 2nd spot, I love that after picking him up a month before the end of the year. I wonder how much center and wing he will play? I hope he gets that wing designation next year.

    • Dobber

      Generally speaking, unless a team is desperate for a center, a rookie will get his feet wet in the NHL on the wing and later will prove himself as a center if that’s where he plays his career. So for the first year anyway, I think he’ll get that wing designation on Yahoo within a month is my guess.
