Welcome to McKeen's Hockey. We are pleased to offer one comprehensive subscription for the online edition of our two respected annuals, McKeen’s Hockey Pool Yearbook and McKeen’s Hockey NHL Draft Guide. You can learn more and subscribe here. A subscription now includes access to all McKeen’s online content, including a digital magazine of both releases.
About the McKeen’s NHL Yearbook online:
McKeen’s Hockey Pool Yearbook has been published since 1994, founded by Iain Morrell. The McKeen’s team has featured many contributors and writers over the years including some of the best scouts and writers in the business. It has been a trusted friend to many poolies on draft day for quite some time.
The most exciting thing about an online version of the McKeen’s Yearbook is our ability to update it throughout the year. It will not only be crucial and current at your draft, but will provide the tools and info you need for your roster changes and trades throughout the season. In order to provide a sample of what we offer, we have made the Anaheim Ducks team page and their top twenty player profiles available free without a subscription. This will give you a look at some of what is included in a membership.
Rotowire.com provides player updates and recommendations, including injuries, in real time. A Google newsfeed and current career stats are also provided by eliteprospects.com

Yes they are. Simply click on the category heading you are interested in ranking.
