Top 50 NHL Fantasy Hockey Defenseman Rankings 2024 (June Update)

Our top 50 fantasy hockey defensemen rankings are back for June 2024.

Our fantasy hockey defensemen rankings project value for the next 1 to 2 seasons, and consider each player's track record, upside, age, team and injury history. Because fantasy 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.
