Welcome to the 2021-22 Fantasy Hockey Rankings!
The NHL season is just around the corner and fantasy hockey draft season is about to be in full swing.
Two seasons removed from the COVID lockdown, the hockey landscape is still reeling from previously shortened seasons, unique divisional structures and everything in between.
A lot has changed in the NHL —unless your name is Jack Eichel, of course.
The Seattle Kraken enter into their inaugural season as the NHL's 32nd franchise and the expansion draft caused many players to pack their bags. The Carolina Hurricanes successfully offer sheeted Jesperi Kotkaniemi from the Montreal Canadiens, for $6.1 Million (and a $20 signing bonus). Goaltender Tuuka Rask his first season without a Bruins uniform, while 15 other goalies play musical chairs throughout the league.
