Expectations were high for Fiala last season after he made the Opening Night roster. After all, the 19-year-old had put up 50 points in 66 games the previous season at AHL Milwaukee, and the Preds were looking for someone who could complement Ryan Johansen and Filip Forsberg...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

Fiala was the leading scorer at AHL Milwaukee last season with 50 points in 66 games, and is expected to get a long look at the Preds' training camp this fall. Whether he cracks the roster this season or next, it's just a matter of time before he becomes a full-time player in the NHL. Offensively, Fiala is the total package. He can play both the playmaker role as well as score goals. He has great hockey sense, sees the ice well, has a quick release, soft hands and exceptional speed. Don't be surprised if he lands a roster spot right out of training camp this year.

2015-16

Fiala made his professional debut in 2014-15, skating in one NHL game and notching 11 goals and 20 points in 33 contests with AHL Milwaukee. The 19-year-old is a flashy skater who has crafty hands and excellent puck control, making him a promising offensive winger. He could make the Predsí roster out of training camp, but with the top-six ranks seemingly chock full, it might be better for Fiala to open the season with Milwaukee, where he'll get top-line minutes and power-play time. That should leave him well prepared to assume a meaningful role with the Predators when an injury might necessitate his promotion to the big club. He makes for a top-notch dynasty league stash.

2014-15

Fiala, the No. 11 overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, certainly turns heads with his offensive skills -- heís smart, quick and can dangle with the best. And he plays with an ultra-competitive edge that gives opponents fits. But that competitiveness sometimes morphs into stupidity, plunking his skinny butt (5-foot-10, 180 lbs.) squarely in the sin bin. He needs to improve his defensive game and learn to control his emotions. But if he can, he could be the next Brad Marchand or Brendan Gallagher, though likely not for a few years. Fiala has impressed during his first training camp in Nashville, but the team will probably want him to hone his development overseas before turning him loose with the parent club.
