Ryan Donato
23-Year-Old CenterC
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Donato made an immediate impact with his new team after he was traded from Boston for Charlie Coyle in late February. In 22 games for the Wild last season, he put up four goals and 16 points while averaging 15:32 of ice time in that span. More telling for future success with Minnesota, he averaged just under two minutes of power-play time. Donato has yet to flash pure goal-scoring ability in his first 68 games in the NHL, but his crafty hands make him a threat to appear on the scoresheet every other game. The 23-year-old faces a logjam at wing currently, but the Wild seem to value Donato as part of their future plans, suggesting he'll get every opportunity to be successful. Read Past Outlooks

Third goal in four games

March 1, 2020
Donato potted a goal on four shots and added four hits in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Capitals.
ANALYSIS
Donato has three goals and two assists over his last four games -- his line with Mikko Koivu and Ryan Hartman has begun to carry some of the scoring load in Minnesota. Through 58 contests this year, Donato has 23 points, 90 shots and 45 hits. He needs just two more points to match last year's career-high output.

Donato, who turned in a stellar performance for Team USA at the 2018 Winter Olympics, also saw his efforts at Harvard last season recognized when he was named a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award, presented annually to the NCAA's best college hockey player. On top of that, Donato got his first taste of NHL action, logging five goals and nine points in 12 games down the regular-season stretch. In the process, Donato showed plenty of upside on offense, while displaying energy, solid wheels and a dangerous shot that he's not afraid to let go. While nothing will be handed to him this season, it's not hard to imagine the 22-year-old securing top-six work up front in his first full campaign as a pro.
The 2014 second-round pick, who showed well at the Bruins' development camp this summer, will now look to establish himself at the NCAA level after a 2014-15 season in which he played for several teams, including the Omaha Lancers of the USHL. While the 19-year-old Donato is no immediate threat to crack the Bruins lineup, down the road he projects as a solid two-way player at the pro level, given his scoring instincts and hockey IQ.
Donato - the son of former Bruin Ted Donato - was selected by Boston with the 56th-overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. He’s a few years away from a shot with the big club though, with another season of high school hockey (at Dexter School in Brookline, Mass) or a stint with the Omaha Lancers of the United States Hockey League on tap for him in 2014-15.
