Welcome to Fantasy Hockey, 2022-23 version! This year’s kit has a fun twist — while it’s not the first featuring Shayna Goldman (she’s been here four years now), it is the first featuring Fantasy Hockey Writer of the Year Shayna Goldman! That’s right, our very own fantasy hockey genius was awarded the Fantasy Sports Writer’s Association annual honor for the excellence that’s been on display every week in her columns here:
This draft kit will be heavy on Shayna’s work (it would’ve been that way with or without the honors) and she also had a hand in crafting the jewel of our preseason prep — Dom Luszczyszyn’s customizable cheat sheet, a tool that allows you to input your settings, size, rules, etc. and will then spit out a set of rankings tailored to your league. It’s awesome and indispensable for both the serious and non-serious fantasy hockey player.
We’ll have stories from beat writers, national writers, and plenty in between. This page will serve as a menu for everything you need to draft like an expert this preseason. So good luck, happy drafting, and let’s get to it.
