2018 Fantasy Outlook
Seeing his first NHL action since the 2011-12 campaign, Dadonov quickly made a name for himself as a dangerous, goal-scoring winger. The Russian potted 28 goals and 65 points in 74 games for Florida last season. In his prior NHL stint, Dadonov scored just 10 goals and 20 points in 55 games across three seasons. Clearly, playing in the KHL was a big boost for his career. Still, even in Russia's top professional league, Dadonov has topped out at 30 goals, so his sudden NHL success came as a surprise. He'll slot into the lineup as a top-six winger as well as being a key factor on the power play which should allow him to post another 25-goal season. Read Past Outlooks

Dadonov assisted on the Panthers' only goal as they fell 5-1 to the Penguins on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Despite a hot start to the season, Dadonov has had troubles recently with only two points in his last seven games. Head coach Bob Boughner was not happy with Tuesday's performance and benched a few of his star players, which could mean a major shakeup is coming to the lineup. Dadonov could lose his spot beside Aleksander Barkov, a split that initially caused his current drought.

Following a five-year hiatus from the NHL, Dadonov qualifies as an intriguing sleeper pick heading into the 2017-18 campaign. He's an immensely talented playmaker, but a limited role with the Panthers had previously foiled his chances of attaining tangible fantasy value; he had 20 points in 55 outings spread across three seasons. However, fantasy owners should note that the winger refined his scoring touch in the KHL -- 30 goals and 36 helpers in 53 contests last year -- and he will likely slot into a top-line, power-play role for a shot at redemption with the Cats in 2017-18.
When Dadonov was traded to Carolina mid-season last year, it was assumed that the 'Canes would try to work him into the mix at the big-league level in hopes that he could develop into an everyday NHL player. As Dadonov still awaits a shot with Carolina, it might be safe to say the Hurricanes brass have seen some things in the minors they don't like about the 23 year-old Russian. Even in dynasty formats, players like that are always a risk. Dadonov notched 28 points in 55 AHL contests last season and remains one of the more talented prospects in the Carolina system.
Dadonov posted eight goals and 9 assists in 36 games played for the Panthers this past season. The solid point production may be just enough for the talented youngster to remain with the big club once camp breaks. Dadonov's value, as of now, lies mostly with keeper leagues due to the fact that there is a chance he may begin the year in Rochester. The Panthers were one of the most active clubs this off season bringing in a host of forwards to fill out the roster. Increasing his physical play could help the talented winger make the permanent jump to the NHL.
Late last season, hockey fans in South Florida got a sneak peak at Dadonov, the Panthers' third-round draft selection who oozes with skill. He appeared in four contests with the parent club but was held off the stat sheet; the same year, in the AHL, it was a much different story. While adjusting the the American style of hockey, Dadonov went plus-9 and finished seventh in team points with 40 (17 G, 23 A). He will report to Rochester of the AHL in 2010-11.
