Editor's note: These rankings are based on player production in terms of Hockey Prospectus' GVT valuation metric. If you are unfamiliar with GVT and how it works, you can find more here.
Every Monday until the end of the season, Prospectus will provide updated Player Power Rankings for the top 10 skaters and top five goalies in the NHL based on HP's proprietary value metric, GVT, a statistic that combines player contributions in all aspects of the game, including defense and the shootout.
On the strength of a thoroughly dominating week for the Columbus Blue Jackets, Sergei Bobrovsky enters the goalie ranks, rising to No. 2 on the list behind Craig Anderson, who may not remain in the pole position for much longer unless he returns from injury soon. In terms of skaters, Sidney Crosby retains the top ranking while Chris Kunitz climbs to No. 2 (from No. 4) and Patrick Kane jumps to No. 3 (from No. 8).
