The Graduates monthly report is a ranking of all goalies that have “graduated” from the Top-25 Prospects Rankings report. This ranking allows readers to stay updated on the top goalie prospects that have been able to establish their presence as full-time NHL goaltenders, either as backups or starters.
This ranking is also a good monthly guide for those that play in keeper or dynasty fantasy leagues, or for those interested in which goalie may have more long-term upside. This is crucial for fantasy managers because roles and opportunities in goal can change very quickly at the pro level.
This monthly release is also a great way to see who carries the most long-term value as they go from backups to starters to potential franchise cornerstones. Please keep in mind the ranking is a reflection of value and potential, not a direct reflection of their skill-sets.
