Fantasy Hockey Rankings: Center

Last modified: September 9, 2018 at 10:12 pm

The centre position is always the deepest position, but there is a big drop-off from the top-end talents to the middle tiers. There will be a lot of centres drafted in the first-round of Fantasy Drafts, starting with Connor McDavid and will be closely followed by Sidney Crosby. 

There were many breakout centres in 2018, including Nathan MacKinnon, Aleksander Barkov and Mathew Barzal, which adds to the overall talent at the centre position heading into 2019.
