Top 100 NHL Fantasy Hockey Forward Rankings - December 2022 2.0

December 2022 NHL fantasy hockey forward rankings update part two.

Our fantasy hockey forward rankings project the next 1 to 2 seasons, and consider each player's track record, upside, age, team, injury history and fantasy trade value. Min/Max is our estimation of a player's points floor and ceiling per season, assuming relatively good health. Because fantasy hockey league categories vary widely, these rankings focus on point production. Notes made in previous rankings may carry over to new rankings if they remain relevant.
