2018 Fantasy Outlook
Following a promising 21-game stint with the Avalanche in 2016-17, Compher predictably bypassed those five points by a wide margin in his first full season by racking up 13 goals and 10 assists. His presence on the power play further solidified him as a fantasy candidate in deep leagues, though a minus-29 rating resulted in major drawbacks to those who invested. Another offseason under his belt and the addition of Philipp Grubauer should assist in the improvement of that statistic, but it's difficult to see him improving too much when he already averaged 16:00 of ice time in his sophomore season.

Erupts with three points

Compher scored twice and added a helper in Monday's 4-3 overtime win against the Sharks in Game 6.
ANALYSIS
The three-point night doubled his scoring output for the entire postseason in his 11th appearance of the run. He added four shots and four hits in the game. Compher's production has been inconsistent in the playoffs so far, which is likely a factor of his third-line usage.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2013
Compher fits in with Colorado's youth movement, given that he's just 22 years old. The 35th pick in the 2013 NHL draft can play either center or wing, but he didn't flash much offense in a limited sample as a rookie last season, netting just three goals and two assists over 21 games. That said, he was a stud scorer in his final college season (63 points in 38 games) and a solid performer in the AHL last year (30 in 41), so there's notable upside here. Compher is expected to reprise a bottom-six role, though a move into the more desirable second-line center spot isn't out of the question if 19-year-old Tyson Jost can't hold down the role.
Compher, the 35th selection in June’s NHL Draft, spent last season with the U.S. National Development Team, posting 24 points in 21 games. He’s a versatile forward who has seen high praise for his leadership and intensity levels. The long-term potential is there for Compher, but for now he’s committed to the University of Michigan, where he will begin his collegiate career this fall.
