Fantasy Hockey: 10 Forwards To Avoid In 2022-23

It’s never too late to think about the upcoming fantasy season. A lot of player movement is expected this summer, which will certainly have an affect on their respective fantasy values, but there comes a point in a player’s career – due to age or lack of opportunity – where they no longer become valuable in fantasy.

For every player who can defy the odds and Father Time, such as Alex Ovechkin scoring 50 goals in his age-36 campaign, there are a bunch of less-heralded players who must accept lesser roles or come to terms with their career winding down. Here’s a look at 10 forwards who are already under contract for the 2022-23 season with an average draft position (ADP) of 180 or higher to avoid for the upcoming fantasy season.
