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 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.
