Last month, NHL.com fantasy hockey analysts Matt Cubeta and Pete Jensen released their rankings of the top 200 fantasy hockey players - and the Los Angeles Kings received plenty of love.

Going through the entire National Hockey League and coming up with the top 200 is certainly not an easy feat - and the final decision is always up for debate - but Cubeta and Jensen were up for the task and they made their choices based on the following statistics: goals, assists, plus-minus, power-play points, shots on goal, penalty minutes, goalie wins, goals-against average, save percentage and shutouts.

With that in mind, here are where the Kings rank among the top 200 between the two analysts:

Matt Cubeta

19) Anze Kopitar

23) Jonathan Quick

54) Drew Doughty

61) Jeff Carter

68) Marian Gaborik

146) Dustin Brown

151) Justin Williams

176) Tyler Toffoli

188) Slava Voynov

Just missed: None

Pete Jensen

10) Jonathan Quick

16) Anze Kopitar

59) Drew Doughty

61) Marian Gaborik

88) Jeff Carter

127) Slava Voynov

179) Justin Williams

Just Missed: Muzzin, Jones

 

 

So, there you have it. A total of nine different Kings selected by both Cupeta and Jensen with two (Jake Muzzin and Martin Jones) narrowly missing the cut.

For a team that just won its second Stanley Cup in three years, to have this type of attention would be automatic. However, given the dreaded east-coast bias, getting the respect and recognition they truly deserve doesn't always come easy for the Los Angeles Kings. But if these rankings were to be based upon a bias towards one coast over the other, then Matt Cupeta and Pete Jensen must have missed the memo.

Nevertheless, fantasy fans entering the 2014-15 season will have the best players to choose from (that goes without saying) but among those top players will be a number of Los Angeles Kings.

I'd like to personally commend Matt Cupeta for selecting nine different Kings while Pete Jensen deserves just as much praise for taking goaltender Jonathan Quick as high as 10th. Not only that but, as previously mentioned, Martin Jones narrowly missed Jensen's cut - not bad for a rookie backup.

This news may not win the Los Angeles Kings any special awards - they have the one that matters most in hockey - but this is still something for the team and their fans to hang their proverbial hats on.

As if the Kings and their fans needed anything else to feel good about, right?
