  • Top 50 Prospect Defensemen in Fantasy Hockey – February 2016

There is a new prospect atop this month's Top 50 Fantasy Hockey Prospect Defensemen list – and no, you haven't seen a 'ghost'. He's really there!

 

Also new this month is the fact that I'm expanding and separating the two lists. Rather than give you the Top 180 forwards and Top 35 defensemen I thought I'd give each of them their own focus. So here for the first time, I present to you the Top 200 forwards. Tomorrow I will post the Top 50 defensemen. That's right, you now have 250 names to look over instead of 215. More isn't always better…but it sure as hell is in this case!

These are the top prospect defensemen to own in fantasy hockey, combining a mix of NHL certainty with upside and wait time (waiting on a prospect for five years, for example, will seriously penalize their value). Note: clicking on a name will take you to our profile of that prospect, complete with observations, stats, outlook and more.
