So, in anticipation of my and my brother’s own coming fantasy draft, I decided to build a rudimentary cheatsheet. There’s a variety of info on here, including NHL.com and Yahoo rankings, projected depth chart positions, per-20 measures, and color coding to suggest the potential for shooting percentage and on-ice shooting percentage regressions (the kind of thing that affects goals and assists, respectively). In brief, I took 3yr samples of player shooting percentage and compared to last year’s performance, and then also compared the on-ice shooting percentage of their teammates last year to league average. I gave myself two percentage points of variance before committing to the idea the player might regress (shoot better=green, worse=red). Players entering the season with injury issues got the light orange shading. HM=honorable mention, for player rankings, and ND=not drafted in Yahoo standard drafts, typically.
It’s built for the standard Yahoo fantasy game; I took their ranks and sorted by percent ownership, then used that order to give the projected pick and round number for each player. It’s for a 12-teamer, but as long as you have the pick number it’s an easy adjustment. The player database is built from “draft-worthy” players, rather than all of them. Tinker, debate, send me questions if you have any.
P.S. I’d suggest going to the link, then opening the spreadsheet with Google Sheets.
