As the NHL’s  Olympic Break comes to a close, it’s a perfect time to prepare for the final six weeks of fantasy action. You should never be comfortable with your team; always be looking for ways to improve your squad as you gear up for a long playoff run. 

Many fantasy leagues break up the wingers and many do not. So here we will break them up and examine each side of the ice. It is hard to pin point the side a winger plays on because most players can play on both side and with that are eligible for both sides in a fantasy lineup.  With that in mind we will use what NHL.com lists a player as in our rankings.

As we saw in the NHL Fantasy Rankings for goalies , defensemen and centers there were some surprise players who will make a huge fantasy impact down the stretch.  That is the same feeling among the best right wingers in the league as time winds down on the NHL and Fantasy seasons
