Fantasy Impact:

The recently acquired Nylander is doing his best to make a good impression on his new team. The 21-year-old winger comes to Chicago with a high first-round draft pedigree, and some recent success in the AHL. He finished the 2018-19 AHL season with 31 points in only 49 games. The Blackhawks will be looking for a similar return on investment to last seasons Dylan Strome trade. Both trades involved recent high-end picks, that for one reason or another did not work out on their original team. Only time will tell if Nylander can take advantage of his new situation as well as Strome did, but he certainly has the talent to do so. Nylander is off the re-draft radar, but he could become fantasy relevant if he makes the NHL roster out of camp, so keep an eye on him.
