2015-16

Subscribe now to see our 2015-16 outlook.

2014-15

Kapanen makes for a strong pickup in keeper leagues. The Penguins have stated that the son of former NHLer Sami Kapanen will get a long look at training camp to make the team. He certainly impressed scouts during this summerís rookie camp with his combination of vision and speed. Still, it's unlikely the 18-year-old makes much of a fantasy impact in 2014-15. He suited up against older players -- including his father -- for KalPa in Finland last season and scored seven goals and 14 points in 47 games. Taken 22nd overall by Pittsburgh as one of the best European prospects on the board, Kapanen will have to really impress management to crack the squad this season. Even if he doesn't, however, his future as one of Pittsburgh's few elite forward prospects is bright.
