Baertschi was limited to 14 goals and 29 points in 53 games last season due to injury, an unfortunate circumstance considering he was on pace to score at least 40 points. Even though he re-signed for three years in the summer, Baertschi's long absence seems to have cost him his usual spot on Bo Horvat's left wing. The good news is Baertschi has enough sandpaper in his game to be a very good third-liner, but his fantasy potential is obviously a lot higher on a scoring line. He'll be ranked lower than usual on fantasy lists due to his injury but he certainly has some upside if he can win a top-six job.

  2. Sven Baertschi 2017–18 Preseason Outlook
    After a decent debut campaign with Vancouver in 2015-16, Baertschi took another step forward in 2016-17, finishing third on the team with 18 goals. The former Flame discovered some great chemistry with rising star Bo Horvat and delivered in the clutch with five game-winning tallies. He isn't known for being a massive point producer, as his 35 points last season were a career high, but Baertschi is proving he’s a very capable goal scorer who can contribute on the power play. A potential second line of Baertschi, Horvat and youngster Brock Boeser could make 2017-18 another successful campaign for the Swiss forward.
  3. Sven Baertschi 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    Baertschi impressed in 69 games with the Canucks last season, notching 15 goals and 28 points. The 23-year-old could play alongside Bo Horvat or Brandon Sutter in 2016-17 and be in for a breakout campaign. The youngster has great speed and a terrific shot and will likely slot in on Vancouver’s second or third line, in addition to seeing power-play time. While he’s only got 138 NHL games under his belt, the Canucks inked him to a two-year contract extension and are confident in his abilities moving forward. The former 34-goal scorer in the WHL has the potential to make a strong impact in fantasy hockey, but he may need just a little more time.
  4. Sven Baertschi 2014–15 Preseason Outlook
    Baertschi has had an up-and-down few years with Calgary, as he has struggled with the immense pressure and overwhelming expectations of being the 13th overall pick. The winger has, at times, had trouble adapting to the speed and toughness of the NHL, but keep in mind he is still only 21 years old. He is more of a finesse player, which can clash with team president Brian Burke's expectations of the Flames, so it's a mystery what Baertschi's role will be in 2014-15. He will certainly get a shot at making the Flames' roster in the fall, but he has to display an improved maturity and work ethic. We're not drafting until we see where things settle.
  5. Sven Baertschi 2013–14 Preseason Outlook
    Baertschi struggled to adjust to the expectations and workload of the NHL early in 2012-13, as the highly prized prospect scored only one point in his first 13 games and he was sent down to the AHL. However, Baertschi caught fire down the stretch upon his recall, scoring at least a point in each of his last seven games. His demotion to the AHL seems to have sparked Baertschi and put a chip on his shoulder, which bodes well for his future. If he can continue his torrid pace from the end of last year, Baertschi could certainly (and quickly) become the best scorer for Calgary. He's likely a future star in the league and should put up 50 to 60 points in 2013-14.
  6. Sven Baertschi 2012–13 Preseason Outlook
    Rarely has a five-game stretch of play excited a city like Baertschi’s in 2011-12. An emergency call-up in March, Baertschi scored three goals and had a plus-2 ratingin those five games and showed why he’s the Flames’ best prospect. It would be a big surprise to not see Baertschi start the season in a Flames uniform, as he tore up the WHL last season and did not look overmatched in the NHL. While it may take him a season or two to fully pick up the nuances of the NHL, he could be a burgeoning superstar and may be worth a flyer in late rounds.
  7. Sven Baertschi 2011–12 Preseason Outlook
    The 13th overall pick in this past year's draft, Baertschi inked an entry-level deal in July. Turning 19 in early October, he has plenty of potential and will likely get a run with the big club during training camp. Keep an eye on this gritty winger with offensive upside, as the Flames are high on him.
