Fantasy Impact:

The 24-year-old Heinen is coming off of his second full season in the NHL which saw him post 11 goals and 34 points. This came as a bit of a disappointment, as Heinen managed to put up 16 goals and 47 points back in his rookie season. Unfortunately for Heinen, the Bruins don’t tend to spread the offensive wealth across their lines; cramming Patrice Bergeron, David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand on what is arguably the best line in the NHL. Heinen is a decent middle-six forward but he receives little to no power-play time. He’s worth keeping an eye on in case the Bruins happen to shuffle their studs around the lineup, but otherwise, he’s probably best left alone outside of deep leagues.
