2019 Fantasy Outlook
Svechnikov is most famous for getting absolutely destroyed in an ill-advised fight with Alex Ovechkin during Carolina's first-round playoff series against Washington last season, but behind that punching bag is a talented hockey player. The Russian dressed in every regular-season game and scored 20 goals as a rookie after being selected second overall in the 2018 draft, and Svechnikov is likely to see significant improvement considering he doesn't turn 20 until March. Just how much he improves will be contingent on landing a spot in the top six and on the No. 1 power-play unit, but Svechnikov has a good chance to do both given his diverse offensive skill set.

Svechnikov has 24 goals, 61 points and a plus-9 rating in 68 games this season.
ANALYSIS
The Russian winger will turn 20 later this month and has already made drastic improvements at the NHL level. After scoring 37 points in 82 games as a rookie, Svechnikov scored at nearly a point-per-game pace in 2019-20 and could reach the 70-point mark if the NHL resumes the regular season. He's established himself as one of the top young forwards in the league.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Svechnikov to the Hurricanes No. 2 overall this past June was decided upon early in the draft process and the big Russian will now have the opportunity to make an immediate impact in Carolina. While Svechnikov is your prototypical power forward in some ways, he is also a terrific, underrated playmaker. He has a complete all-around offensive game and should be able to handle opposing defenders from the get-go given how physically mature he is for an 18-year-old kid. Svechnikov has nothing left to learn playing junior hockey and it would be a monumental upset if he doesn't spend the entire year in the NHL. Fantasy owners can easily bank on 15-20 goals from the rookie in his freshman campaign. Svechnikov is arguably the top forward prospect in the entire league.
