Top-20 Fantasy Hockey Goalies for the 2018-19 season

Goaltenders are here! The last of the news until we hit some other fantasy hockey related topics. For me goalies are tough because, I always take into account a goalies defense their previous year, games started and of course consistency. For example you will immediately realize I did not rank Pekka Rinne #1, because he had the best defense in the league in front of him and a top team in the conference, plus I mean the guy imploded in the playoffs, and during the regular season he is solid every year. Also, he won the Vezina and I think it is only fair that a guy who was a starter in the AHL three years ago had an unreal year and deserves #1.

Top-20 Goalies are as follows…

  1. Connor Hellebuyck, WPG
  2. Pekka Rinne, NSH
  3. Andrei Vasilevskiy, TBL
  4. Sergei Bobrovsky, CBJ
  5. Jonathan Quick, LAK
  6. Braden Holtby, WSH
  7. Marc Andre-Fleury, VGK
  8. Devan Dubynk, MIN
  9. Tuukka Rask, BOS
  10. John Gibson, ANH
  11. Martin Jones, SJS
  12. Ben Bishop, DAL
  13. Frederick Anderson, TOR
  14. Matt Murray, PIT
  15. Corey Crawford, CHI
  16. Carter Hutton, BUF
  17. Mike Smith, CGY
  18. Semyon Varlamov, COL
  19. Henrik Lundqvist, NYR
  20. Corey Schneider, NJD

Not even going to lie, I almost forgot about Matt Murray and Braden Hotlby, I understand Holtby had a down year in a sense and so did Murray but Holtby is coming off a Stanely Cup win, and Murray was dealing with a roller coaster of emotions with everything that was happening with him personally plus injuries. This is a tough list, I also don’t think we need to go much after the top-20 so you have a lovely surprise after this paragraph… I gave Hellebuyck #1 because cmon, the guy came in with Steve Mason in front of him, literally ran Mason out of a job and out of Winnipeg, took over the starting job all year and had unbelievable first year as a starter. I like Hellebuyck a lot and think this is only the beginning for him. Perhaps Carter Hutton should not be on that list but he took over a lot of time in St. Louis and earned a number one role in Buffalo which he will excel in greatly.

21. Roberto Luongo, FLA

22. Jake Allen, STL

23. Aaron Dell, SJS

24. Juuse Saros, NSH

25. Antti Raanta, ARI

26. Scott Darling, CAR

27. Cam Ward, CHI

28. Jonathan Brenier, DET

29. Keith Kinkaid, NJD

30. Jacob Markstrom, VAN

And from there that is all I will talk about goalies so either take it or leave it!
