Fans should use these positional rankings as a basis for their decision-making in FanDuel snake draft contests. Value has been quantified based on the following stat categories: goals, assists, blocked shots, shots on goal, power-play and shorthanded points for skaters; wins, goals against (negative points), saves and shutouts for goalies. Other factors include past production in the regular season and playoffs, line combinations, defense pairs, power-play usage, goalie workload, injury history, contract status, age, series matchups and likelihood of a deep postseason run. As part of the NHL Return to Play Plan, a team is not permitted to disclose player injury or illness information.
