One of the fun things about the buildup to another NHL season is looking at prognostications. Every year, Hockey Prospectus releases its annual projections by stats guru Tom Awad, which use a number of factors such as age and team strength to estimate how many goals and assists each player will score.

These are great for any hockey fan, but particularly for fantasy owners getting ready for their draft; when you're making those picks in the first few rounds, which player should you take? Use these projections as another tool at your disposal.
