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 out more here.
Periodically throughout 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, which includes offensive, defensive and shootout components.
In the final player rankings of the regular season, Evgeni Malkin completes his dominant season by winning his second scoring title and finishing the season as the No. 1 skater. Phoenix Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith makes a late push to claim the top spot in the goalie rankings.
These rankings are through April 8. Total GVT might not equal the sum of the subcategories because of factors that aren't shown.
