20-Year-Old DefensemanD
Arizona Coyotes
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Chychrun is a toolsy competitor who could eventually mature into an elite NHL defenseman. At 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, the dual (American-Canadian) citizen exhibits supreme two-way awareness and appears cut from the same cloth as 2016 Norris Trophy winner Drew Doughty of the Kings. Unfortunately, knee problems have impeded his development. Chychrun sustained a significant injury to the joint while preparing for the 2017-18 campaign -- he would then opt for knee surgery in April after providing four goals, 10 assists and a plus-2 rating over 50 contests. The lefty shooter -- a product of the OHL's Sarnia Sting -- has recorded 11 goals and 23 helpers for a 0.28 points-per-game pace heading into this third season. Early signs point to Chychrun making a full recovery before training camp rolls around, giving him sleeper appeal as a defender locked in at 20-plus minutes per game. Read Past Outlooks

Chychrun sank a power-play goal in Saturday's 6-1 home win over the Blues.
ANALYSIS
It's hard not to root for the 20-year-old given that he's had a heck of a time staying healthy early in his career. This was Chychrun's seventh game as part of the 2018-19 campaign, as he missed all of training camp and the first 16 contests due to a knee injury, and then an upper-body issue surfaced in mid-November. Sure, there's risk in deploying Arizona's first-round (16th overall) pick from the 2016 draft, but Chychrun is averaging more than 20 minutes of ice time with a role carved out on the No. 2 power play, so you could do much worse than to use him as a depth defenseman in fantasy hockey.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Offseason knee surgery clouds Chychrun's fantasy outlook heading into the 2017-18 campaign, but everything he did last year as a rookie was promising. His 1.09 points per 60 minutes at five-on-five ranked 14th among all defenseman with at least 750 minutes, and he posted 20 points despite averaging just 31 seconds of power-play time per game. Chychrun owns the size, skating ability and offensive acumen to be an excellent virtual asset down the road, and he's likely to develop into a go-to defender for the Coyotes even sooner. He's also unlikely to receive the minutes or power-play looks to show significant offensive improvement this season.
