Top 5 Centres - Fantasy Hockey

Having a good centre can lead your team to victory at the end of the hockey season. Here are the top 5 centres you need to look at when drafting your team.

5. Jack Hughes

He has emerged as one of the best young talents in the NHL. Coming off a year with 99 points, Jack Hughes is looking to take the next step in his game. With a strong New Jersey Devils team, there is a ton of opportunity to score. Being an offensive juggernaut, this makes Hughes a great option for fantasy. He is only 22 years old and has a lot to learn about his game but he will be a dangerous player to play against in the upcoming years. If you are picking between #8 to #10, Hughes is your guy.

4. Nathan Mackinnon

One of the best in today's NHL, Mackinnon looking to lead his team to another Stanley Cup. An excellent skater who explodes offensively, he is a great option for anyone’s fantasy team. Coming off a career-best 111 points in 71 games. A former #1 overall pick, who sees the game well and makes his teammates better just by his leadership qualities on and off the ice. Being on a Stanley Cup contender, #1 line, and #1 power play unit, Mackinnon will go early in the draft. If you have a top 5 pick and he’s still available, grab him.

3. Auston Matthews

We all know what Matthews brings to the table. He is one goal away from reaching 300 career goals which will make him the second fastest behind Russian superstar Alexander Ovechkin. Many would say Auston had an off-year last season but still put up 40 goals. It was believed that Matthews was dealing with wrist injuries which was the key reason why his numbers weren’t as high as the season before. If Matthews can stay healthy this season, don’t be surprised if he reaches 55 to 60 goals this season. Pick him early if you would like this American superstar on your fantasy team.

2. Leon Draisaitl

The best player in the NHL that is not named McDavid. Draisaitl has been dominant for the past 6 years as the second-line centre on the Edmonton Oilers. He is well over a point per game in his career and has surpassed 100 points 4 times in his career. He had a career-best 128 points last season including 52 goals and 76 assists. Draisaitl has a very high IQ on both ends of the ice and is one of the best passers in the NHL. Once McDavid goes in the draft, the only logical pick is Leon Draisaitl.

1. Connor McDavid

There is no argument that Connor McDavid is the best player on the planet. Taking the league by storm each and every year. What makes Connor so impressive is his speed but being able to puck handle at top speed. He blows by anyone on the ice, doesn’t even matter who, no one can keep up with him. He surpassed 150 points last season, bringing home every piece of hardware he possibly could other than the Stanley Cup. Every year, he finds a way to step up his game so it’s going to be exciting to see what he brings this season. If you have the #1 pick in fantasy, he is the only option.

Good luck to everyone in fantasy this season. Be sure to check us out on all social media platforms with the most up to date information. @North6ixSports
