2020 Fantasy Outlook
Leivo compiled a solid seven goals and 19 points in 36 games with the Canucks last season before suffering a broken kneecap that ended his campaign early. By the time the 2020-21 season begins, he'll have been on the shelf for over a year. Still, the 27-year-old has shown signs of blooming into a productive bottom-six forward over the last two seasons. He's racked up 37 points in 85 contests over parts of two years in Vancouver. As a Flame, he'll likely be limited to a third-line role at best, but he could still challenge the 30-point mark if he gets enough ice time. Fantasy managers looking for physicality will have to look elsewhere, as Leivo has never posted more than 44 hits in a season. Read Past Outlooks

Leivo notched an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Jets.
ANALYSIS
Leivo only saw 7:16 of ice time, lowest among Flames skaters, but he had a secondary assist on linemate Byron Froese's tally in the second period. The limited usage is because Leivo has struggled in the start to his Flames career -- he has just two assists, 15 shots on goal and six hits through 11 contests. With such low production, there's a chance the 27-year-old winger could face challenges from Dominik Simon or Zac Rinaldo for playing time.

Leivo finally was able to secure an everyday spot in 2018-19, but it wasn't with the team that drafted him. Moving on from the Maple Leafs, Leivo found his NHL stripes in Vancouver, scoring 10 goals and 18 points in 49 games with the Canucks last year. Overall, the forward played 76 games and found the scoresheet 24 times. The 2019-20 season should see Leivo settle into a second- or third-line role with Vancouver, giving him a good chance to reach 40 points, something Leivo has yet to accomplish in his professional career. Leivo is worth targeting in the middle-to-late rounds and could be in for a fruitful 2019-20 campaign, especially if he manages to earn somewhat consistent power-play time.
Pity poor Josh -- the guy has gotten a bit of a bum steer in Toronto. He has spent the last two seasons all but exiled in former Leafs GM Lou Lamoriello's basement; at least that's how it seemed. Leivo stayed with the big squad despite being a healthy scratch for 66 games. Yes, 66. The guy can score. It remains to be seen if coach Mike Babcock will give him a gig in the bottom six this season. If so, Leivo has 15 goals in his stick for sure.
Leivo will play a big role with the AHL Marlies in 2014-15, but no matter how much twine twitches at his touch, it'll never translate into scoring at the NHL level. Keeper leaguers need not apply.
Leivo just continues to overachieve. He built on his explosive playoff run with the OHL's Sudbury Wolves in 2010-11 with a breakout campaign in 2011-12. He pumped in 42 more points than he did in 2010-11 finishing with 72 in 66 games. He doesn't have the cache of the higher rated Leafs' prospects, but the guy has shown he can score no matter where he goes. Watch from afar and hope his development curve continues at the current pace.
Leivo was the Leafs’ third-round pick in 2011. He had a middling at best regular season with the Sudbury Wolves in his draft year and was left off of Central Scouting’s draft list. Boy, did they whiff on him. Leivo flat-out exploded when the going got tough in the playoffs, leading his team to a first-round ouster of the East Division champs, the Ottawa 67s. He finished the postseason with an incredible six goals, seven assists, plus-6 and four PIMs in just eight games. He needs to work on his skating but the future looks bright for this Eric Fehr-like opportunistic power forward if he can build on his current development curve.
