2019 Fantasy Outlook
There are few players on the Penguins roster that will have more on the line during training camp than Simon and teammate Zach Aston-Reese, as the two will likely be battling for the same spot in the lineup following the offseason acquisitions of Dominik Kahun and Brandon Tanev. The 24-year-old Simon's willingness to battle for pucks along the boards could give him an edge over Aston-Reese, but even if he's able to secure a roster spot out of training camp, he'll likely be a healthy scratch on a semi-regular basis throughout the campaign. In other words, Simon will be hard pressed to improve upon the eight goals and 28 points he put up in 71 games last season in 2019-20. Read Past Outlooks

Scores first goal of the season
CPittsburgh Penguins
October 13, 2019
Simon scored a goal on his lone shot and was plus-2 with two PIM in Sunday's 7-2 win over the Jets.
ANALYSIS
The 25-year-old deposited a loose puck in front to put the Penguins up 4-2 late in the second period and Pittsburgh went on to blow it wide open in the third period. Simon only registered eight goals and 28 points in 71 games last season, but anyone who skates on a line with Sidney Crosby and Jake Guentzel, as Simon did tonight, needs to at least be monitored going forward.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2014
Simon's grip on a lineup spot with the Penguins should be considered tenuous at best, but heading into camp he figures to be ahead of Jean-Sebastien Dea, Zach Aston-Reese and Derek Grant. It would take a very solid season from the versatile winger to avoid spending some time in the press box or even in the minors, though any demotion would likely be temporary. Thus far, the Prague native has performed well at hockey's highest level, as he garnered 12 points in 33 contests last year, despite averaging a mere 11:25 of ice time.
