2018 Fantasy Outlook
Faksa's second full season in the NHL was, for the most part, a success, as he scored a career-high 17 goals despite getting almost no power-play time while posting an impressive plus-21 rating. The 24-year-old plays a rock-solid two-way game, and his hockey IQ, soft hands and size give him some offensive upside, even if his merely adequate speed keeps him from being a truly dynamic weapon. The Stars would love it if the 13th overall pick in the 2012 draft took another leap forward in his development and was able to anchor a second line that can force opposition defenses to account for it, but even if Faksa doesn't become that sort of player, he should still be an asset as part of an effective and occasional dangerous checking unit.

$Faksa re-signed with the Stars on a three-year, $6.6 million contract in July of 2017.
Pots goal and assist in big win
CDallas Stars
February 21, 2019
Faksa scored his 10th goal of this season and added an assist on top of it in a 5-2 win over the Blues on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Faksa, after consecutive 33-point seasons, sits at 24 points through 61 games in 2018-19. The top-six center had gone six games without a point before recording two against St. Louis. Next up are the Hurricanes on Saturday. Faksa, in the two teams' only other meeting this season, failed to find the scoresheet.

Bruins netminder Tuukka Rask has been playing well lately, making him one of Doug Greenberg's recommendations Wednesday against the Red Wings.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2014
2012
The 13th overall pick in the 2012 draft, Faksa began to live up to his draft pedigree in 2016-17, playing a full season at the NHL level for the first time and providing 12 goals and 33 points. His lack of foot speed keeps him from profiling as a future top-line center, but otherwise the 23-year-old has a complete skill set, showing impressive hockey IQ, passing skills and effort in his own end of the rink to go along with NHL size and strength. The Martin Hanzal signing will allow Faksa to begin the season on the third line and without heavy expectations, but the youngster could quickly work his way into a role that gives him more offensive upside if he continues the development he showed last season.
Faksa had a busy 2013-14. He started the season with the OHL Kitchener Rangers, but was traded to the Sudbury Wolves midseason. He was then called up later on for a short stint in the AHL, playing in both regular-season and playoff games there. Most importantly, he didn't look out of place there, picking up three points in six regular-season games and four goals in 21 postseason contests. The 20-year-old forward has some developing to do, but the Stars have high hopes for him. He will start the upcoming season with AHL Texas. His impact may not be at hand, but Faksa will be relevant to your fantasy draft within the next couple years.
Faksa was Dallas' first-round pick in 2011, falling several spots before the Stars selected him with the 13th pick. He has good size, drawing comparisons to Jason Arnott, and should be NHL-ready after another year or two in junior/minor hockey.
