2013-14 NHL.com Fantasy Hockey Awards

NHL

With the 2013-14 regular season now in our rearview mirror, it's time for our team of NHL.com Fantasy Hockey insiders to reflect on the players that have defined the fantasy landscape -- for better or worse.

Our fantasy experts -- Matt Cubeta , Pete Jensen , Matt Sitkoff , Brian Metzer and Justin Goldman -- have cast their votes, outlining the best fantasy players at each position based on eligibility in Yahoo! leagues.

The list of year-end awards is also complete with the biggest underachievers and most notable fantasy rookies, as well as sleeper and bounceback candidates to keep an eye on for next season.

So, as we officially say goodbye to another compelling fantasy hockey season, here are the 2013-14 NHL.com Fantasy Hockey awards.

NOTE: If a player is listed at multiple positions in Yahoo! Leagues, then it is the writer's choice to nominate that player for any eligible positional fantasy award.
