We’re more than a month into 2024, so there’s no better time for ESPN Fantasy analysts Sean Allen and Victoria Matiash to spotlight each team’s hottest player since Jan. 1, in terms of most fantasy points per game. Note that Sean handled the Eastern teams, while Victoria tackled the West.

How we rank: A panel of ESPN hockey commentators, analysts, reporters and editors sends in a 1-32 poll based on the games through Wednesday, which generates our master list here.

Note: Previous ranking for each team refers to the previous edition, published Jan. 26. Points percentages are through Thursday’s games.

Previous ranking: 2
Points percentage: 71.57%
Next seven days: vs. WSH (Feb. 10), vs. TB (Feb. 13), vs. SEA (Feb. 15)

Previous ranking: 4
Points percentage: 65.38%
Next seven days: FLA (Feb. 10), @ WSH (Feb. 13), @ TB (Feb. 15)

Nathan MacKinnon, C (4.65 FPPG since Jan. 1): What else is there to say about MacKinnon, a skater who’s averaging…
