W.T.F. DOES THAT STAND FOR?

Not to worry. We have you cov­ered on ev­ery ab­bre­vi­ated stat cat­e­gory and league name packed into the THN fan­tasy guide’s pages

The Hockey News - Fantasy Pool Guide - - Abbreviation Guide -

THE 16TH AN­NUAL UL­TI­MATE FAN­TASY GUIDE IS DED­I­CATED to all poolies, from ca­sual o ce com­peti­tors to diehard keeper lea­guers. Our pages are packed with projections and stats. The prog­nos­ti­ca­tions come from fan­tasy guru Mur­ray Townsend. Among his many home runs last year, he called Vic­tor Hed­man’s break­out and Sid­ney Crosby’s healthy, Art Ross-win­ning sea­son. The leg­end be­low lists ab­bre­vi­a­tions for stats and leagues found in player profiles, ros­ters and stats pages. Our print­ing dead­line was in mid-July, so we couldn’t link the fi­nal wave of free agents with their new teams. Play­ers with NHL shields thus have projections based more on past pro­duc­tion than ex­pected out­put. A list of un­re­stricted free agents at the time of our dead­line is on page 103.
