NHL 13 Fantasy Rankings - Left Wingers

EA SPORTS is proud to present our 2013 Top Five NHL Fantasy Rankings by Position. If you’re looking to get the jump on your fantasy draft and manage your team all the way to the #1 spot, this guide is for you.

Here’s a look at the Top Five Left Wingers:

1.  Alex Ovechkin (WSH)

Back-to-back disappointing fantasy years for OV after scoring 85 and 65 points respectfully.  However we all know that Ovechkin easily has the potential to break the 100 point 50 goal plateau and with new offensively minded coach Adam Oates now at the helm, look for Ovie to have impressive totals during this shortened season.

2.  Daniel Sedin (VAN)

If you play in a positional league Daniel Sedin is as valuable as it gets.  A consistent point per game producer on left wing who will also be near the top of the league in plus/minus.

3.  Rick Nash (NYR)

Quite possibly the biggest offseason acquisition for any team in the past couple years, look for Rick Nash to light it up in the Big Apple. He is finally surrounded by the caliber of players that will allow this once lone ranger (no pun intended) to flourish, as a member of a high-powered offensive, with a potent PP squad. Look for the points to roll in, in droves.

4.  Zach Parise (MIN)

He’s heading home. His play will be inspired and he should be able to match or better his point-a-game plus totals during the 2008-09 & 2009-10 seasons. Look for Parise to form a strong partnership with Koivu from the get-go and not look back.

5. Gabriel Landeskog (COL)

The youngest ever Captain in NHL history has yet to play a game with the ‘C’ stitched to his sweater and you can bet that he’ll be ready to lead the Avs. If his 22 goals and +20 rating last year during his rookie tenure is any indication of his potential, expect big things from Landeskog this year.
