FORWARD POINT PROJECTIONS FOR 2020-21

NOTES: Forward point projections (for 56-game season) have been quantified based on factors including but not limited to past production in the regular season and Stanley Cup Playoffs, projected line combinations, power-play usage, injury history or concern, sleeper upside, anticipated regression or bounce-back candidacy, age, contract status (professional tryout contract: PTO) and overall upside for the upcoming season. Position eligibility is updated for 2020-21. The below totals are safe point estimates, do not indicate each player’s ceiling or floor and should be used as a basis for decision-making in all fantasy leagues, especially points-only formats. The order of projected point totals (highest to lowest) does not reflect order of rank in NHL.com’s fantasy top 250 because those rankings take standard peripheral categories into account. Injuries could affect whether a player meets or comes close to his point projection. These projections are a collaborative effort by Pete Jensen and Rob Reese.
