UPDATE: Daily Fantasy Hockey Goalie Rankings: December 13th

Updated: December 13, 2014 at 6:17 pm by Brock Seguin


It is a crazy busy day across the NHL. We had 13 games total, but two matinees that saw the Flyers slap the Hurricanes around and the Senators down the Bruins in a shootout. These rankings are a bit of a mess, there are a ton of goalies that remain unconfirmed or likely, but I did the best I could. For the goalies who are unconfirmed or likely, check in about two hours before puck-drop because that is when coaches address the media. At the very least, I expect to get the Lightning starter at 5 PM ET.

The Daily Goalie Rankings now has DraftKings salary as well as my top ‘Good Value’ and ‘Bad Value‘ one-day Fantasy Hockey goalie starts.

Here are my rankings for all of the Likely or Confirmed goalies in the order of who I think will be the best Fantasy starts tonight. Rankings will be based off of matchups, recent performance, injuries etc. and follow standard fantasy stats: Wins, GAA, SV%, SO.

This is a useful tool to help you decide which goalies to play on a given night. If you have three goalies and they are ranked below at 3, 5 and 9 then you play the ones ranked #3 and #5. However, remember to be careful starting goalies who are Likely over ones who are Confirmed. While Likely starter’s usually start, it is not confirmed for a reason!


If you have any fantasy hockey goalie questions or questions about my rankings leave a comment below or Tweet us @DailyFaceoff or myself directly @Brock_Seguin.

Good Luck!
