Draft Utopia 2014 Fantasy Hockey Right Winger Rankings

Posted By: Bob Raymond On 11/11/2014

  1. Corey Perry: RW, Anaheim Ducks Perry is not just a the top right winger in the NHL. He is also a top 5 forward. Right now he leads the NHL with 11 goals.

  2. Alex Ovechkin: RW, Washington Capitals Ovechkin once the top left winger in the NHL is still a top 5 winger in the NHL. Now he is more effective at right wing. He led the NHL in goals last year

    Previous Ranking: 4th Overall

  3. Patrick Kane: RW, Chicago Blackhawks Kane plays with Sharp and Toews on the first line. Chicago may have the best all around line 1 unit at left wing, center, and right wing in the entire NHL.

  4. Phil Kessel: RW, Toronto Maple Leafs Until Kessel gets a quality center, you cannot call him a top 3 right winger. A winger is as only as good as his center.

    Previous Ranking: 2nd Overall

  5. Wayne Simmons: RW, Philadelphia Flyers Wayne Simmons plays left wing on the Flyers top line, but he is projected as a right winger in fantasy hockey leagues. Simmons played all 82 games last season. Simmons got a slight edge over Voracek because of his versatility. Both Simmons and Voracek tallied at least 60 points. Simmons had 29 goals, 31 assists, and 60 points in those 82 contests from the 2013-2014 NHL regular season.

  6. Jakub Voracek: RW, Philadelphia Flyers Jakub Voracek like Wayne Simmons and Claude Giroux played all 82 contests last season. Voracek a pure right winger posted 23 goals, 39 assists, and 62 points. Voracek ranks second in the NHL in points and assists with Crosby ranking first in both of those categories.

  7. Marian Hossa: RW, Chicago Blackhawks Marian Hossa is without a doubt the best line 2 right winger in the NHL. Sometimes he gets line 1 action, when Patrik Kane needs more time to rest.

    Previous Ranking: 12th Overall

  8. Patric Hornqvist: RW, Pittsburgh Penguins Honrqvist is not as good as James Neal. He will be playing next to Crosby this time. Right now he ranks fourth in the NHL with 9 goals because he is playing next to Crosby.

    Previous Ranking: 15th Overall

  9. James Neal: RW, Nashville Predators James Neal is now the face of the Nashville Predators after being a line 1 right winger with Kunitz and Crosby. So far he has 8 goals in 2014 which is one more than Crosby who only has 7 goals.

    Previous Ranking: 14th Overall

  10. Rick Nash: RW, New York Rangers Calling Rick Nash an underrated line 2 right winger was an understatement. Nash is tied for first in goals. New York does not have a quality line 1 center at this point which is why Nash ranks 10th for now.

    Previous Ranking: 16th Overall

  11. Jiri Hudler: RW, Calgary Flames Jiri Hudler has been a center his entire career. Now he will adjust to right wing with Sean Monahan emerging as the line 1 center in Calgary. Hurdler has seen some action at left wing this year as well showing teams he can be a plug in and play type of guy.

    Previous Ranking: 28th Overall

  12. Brendan Gallagher: RW, Montreal Canadiens Gallagher posted 41 points in 81 games as the line 1 right winger. Gallagher will continue to be an asset with the Canadiens moving forward.

    Previous Ranking: 29th Overall

  13. Martin St. Louis: RW, New York Rangers Martin St. Louis has declined the past few seasons. He led the NHL with 60 points a few years ago, and is still a top 15 winger when you consider how thin the Rangers are at center.

    Previous Ranking: 7th Overall

  14. Blake Wheeler: RW, Winnipeg Jets Wheeler has 5 goals and 5 assists. Winnipeg loves

    Previous Ranking: 9th Overall

  15. Ryan O’Reilly: RW, Colorado Avalanche Ryan O’Reilly posted 65 points last season as a line 1 right winger. He also has the versatility to play left wing, center, or right wing. WHen O’Reilly played on the top line with Landeskog and Duchene, the top line combined for a total of 200 points. Ryan O’Reilly can play left wing or center too. He seems like an ideal fit on the first line.

    Previous Ranking: 10th Overall

  16. Jarome Iginla: RW, Colorado Avalanche Jarome Iginla plays a line 2 right winger role behind Ryan O’Rielly. Some have O’Rielly listed as a center in fantasy leagues. Either way Colorado will have two lines of premium forwards that know how to create scoring chances. Iginla posted 30 goals, 31 assists, and 61 points. Having a 30/30 right winger like Iginla next to a healthy Alex Tanguay and second-year center in Nate MacKinnon makes the Avalanche a very dangerous team.

    Previous Ranking: 11th Overall

  17. Brock Nelson: RW, New York Islanders Brock Nelson has emerged this season at right wing. Nelson is giving the Islanders serious consideration to make him the #1 line right winger over Kyle Okposo.

    Previous Ranking: Not Ranked

  18. Tommy Wingels: RW, San Jose Sharks Tommy Wingels has one game winning goal in 2014-2015. He has outplayed Tomas Hertl the highly touted 2012 first round pick. Wingels is nothing special though. His 9 points in 2014-2015 are impressive.

    Previous Ranking: Not Ranked

  19. Tanner Pearson: RW, Los Angeles Kings Tanner Pearson is a 2012 first round pick. The Kings right winger is in a contract year which means he may break out at some point.

    Previous Ranking: Not Ranked

  20. Loui Eriksson: RW, Boston Bruins Once considered a borderline elite line 1 winger. Has struggled the past two seasons. Eriksson posted 10 goals, 27 assists, and 37 points in 80 games.

    Previous Ranking: 18th Overall

  21. Marcus Johansson: RW, Washington Capitals Johansson can play left wing, center, or right wing. Besides having the ability to play anywhere at forward, Johansson posted 10 points in 14 games.

    Previous Ranking: Not Ranked

  22. Jason Pominville: RW, Minnesota Wild Pominville played all 82 games for the Wild. Playing next to Parise and Koivu helped him become a 30/30 player.

    Previous Ranking: 22nd Overall

  23. Bobby Ryan: RW, Ottawa Senators Bobby Ryan posted 23 goals, 25 assists, and 48 points in in 70 games. Ryan played left wing with the Anaheim Ducks before the Senators gave the Ducks their 2014 first-round pick for Ryan.

    Previous Ranking: 19th Overall

  24. Mikael Backlund: RW, Calgary Flames Backlund can play left wing, center, or right wing. He is a an all around forward that is inserted at various positions on the Flames second line. The fact that you do not know which position he plays is why it is so hard to keep this man from putting up points when the Flames play in Calgary.

    Previous Ranking: Not Ranked

  25. Adam Henrique: RW, New Jersey Devils Surprisingly, Jaromir Jagr is not the best right winger on the Devils in 2014-2015 despite his historic milestones. Adam Henrique is their top player if you ask me.

    Previous Ranking: Not Ranked

  26. Kyle Okposo: RW, New York Islanders Okposo now plays on the Islanders second line. His demotion will limit his scoring chances, but his 14 points are impressive so far in 2014-2015.

    Previous Ranking: 8th Overall

  27. Andre Burakovsky: RW, Washington CapitalsBurakovsky is just like Johansson. Can play left wing, center, or right wing as an all around forward. He is not as productive as Johansson which is why he is ranked here.

    Previous Ranking: Not Ranked

  28. Drew Stafford: RW, Buffalo Sabres The Sabres offense is a joke. Drew Stafford is the only player with any remote productivity on the Sabres front line.

    Previous Ranking: Not Ranked

  29. Nate Hornton: RW, Columbus Blue Jackets Hornton is a line 1 right winger that had a limited season due to injuries. With the status of Ryan Johansen still uncertain, one has to wonder where Hornton should go.

    Previous Ranking: 27th

  30. P.A. Parenteau: RW, Montreal Canadiens P.A. Parenteau will get a bigger role up north in Canada after a solid season with the Colorado Avalanche. He needs to stay healthy if he wants to move up on the rankings in Fantasy Hockey Leagues.
