During the season, these rankings -- which appear on Mondays in concert with the NHL Power Rankings -- are based on player production in terms of Puck Prospectus' GVT valuation metric. If you are unfamiliar with GVT and how it works, you can find more here.

Check out the full rankings below. We'll be back every Monday with new editions.
