2018 Fantasy Outlook
Juolevi may never be that dominant defenseman everyone thought he'd be following an impressive performance at the World Juniors, but there's still a lot to like about his game. The former first-round pick scored 19 points in 38 games on the top team in a Finnish league last season and earned praise from the coaching staff for his improvements. Unfortunately, Juolevi is coming off back surgery, and even though he's expected to be healthy by training camp, the fading prospect may face a very tough first year as he recovers and acclimates himself to the pros in North America. To ensure he gets enough playing time to develop, especially on the defensive side of the puck, it's likely Juolevi spends most of the 2018-19 season in the AHL. Read Past Outlooks
Vying for roster spot
DVancouver Canucks  Minors
August 5, 2018
Juolevi (back) will compete for a roster spot in training camp, the Vancouver Sun reports.
ANALYSIS
This report implies that Juolevi is recovered from "relatively minor" back surgery, but the greater concern for the prospect is that the Canucks selected Quinn Hughes seventh overall in this year's draft. While Hughes reportedly will play for the University of Michigan in the upcoming season, Juolevi is in danger of becoming an afterthought as far as Canucks prospects are concerned. The Finn went fifth overall in the 2016 draft but has yet to even reach the AHL stage.
