Impact of Hall signing with Sabres

Taylor Hall signed a one-year contract with the Buffalo Sabres. Hall gains fantasy appeal from this move compared to his value with the Arizona Coyotes last season and should be considered a top 50 overall player again with likely exposure to elite center Jack Eichel.

Impact of Rangers drafting Lafreniere

Alexis Lafreniere was selected with the No. 1 pick by the New York Rangers in the 2020 NHL Draft. Lafreniere, because of his individual skill and the elite fantasy talent around him on the Rangers, is projected to be the most-valuable fantasy rookie skater next season.

Impact of Pietrangelo, Barrie signings

— Alex Pietrangelo signed a seven-year contract with the Vegas Golden Knights. This move solidifies Pietrangelo as a top 10 fantasy defenseman with exposure to valuable forwards Mark Stone, Max Pacioretty, Jonathan Marchessault, Reilly Smith and William Karlsson. The Golden Knights were among the most valuable fantasy teams last season and could be even better this season with Pietrangelo.

— Tyson Barrie signed a one-year contract with the Edmonton Oilers. This could be the best-case fantasy scenario for Barrie to bounce back to his previous top 20 form among defensemen this season with likely first power-play exposure to the top two point producers in the NHL, forwards Leon Draisaitl (led League with 110 points last season) and Connor McDavid (97, second).

 

Impact of Holtby signing with Canucks

— Braden Holtby signed a two-year contract with the Vancouver Canucks on Friday. Holtby should be viewed as a top 10 fantasy goalie option again with renewed upside for the Canucks, a trendy fantasy team with a high ceiling in the seasons ahead.

Holtby, 31, is expected to get the majority of the starts this season but could split time with Thatcher Demko, who looked like a future starter in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Holtby and Demko, who turns 25 on Dec. 8, are worth targeting as a duo in standard 12-team fantasy leagues, especially after Jacob Markstrom signed with the Calgary Flames.

FANTASY TOP 250 PLAYER RANKINGS

Standard fantasy categories include goals, assists, plus/minus, power-play points, shots on goal and hits for skaters. Value has been quantified based on factors including but not limited to past production in the regular season and Stanley Cup Playoffs, line combinations, defense pairs, power-play usage, team goalie situations, anticipated start volume, projected goal support (or lack thereof), injury history and updates, age, contract status (2020 unrestricted free agents: *; restricted: **) and overall upside for the 2020-21 season.
