2020 Fantasy Outlook
Janmark put up 21 points in 62 games in his final year with the Stars in 2019-20. Never a notorious scorer, Janmark is typically known for quietly steady defense and penalty-killing work. With the Blackhawks entering a transitional year, there's a chance Janmark will see top-six minutes, but the Swede probably won't produce at a high level on offense even with the chance to see second-unit usage on the power play. The 28-year-old should end up with roughly 20 points, 90 shots on goal and a handful of power-play points in 2020-21. Read Past Outlooks

February 15, 2021
Janmark scored a goal on three shots in Monday's 3-2 overtime win over Detroit.
ANALYSIS
Janmark converted a feed from the left faceoff circle to draw first blood just 4:19 into the game. It was Janmark's sixth goal in 17 games this season, already matching his total from each of the previous two years with Dallas. He'll have to overcome the shortened schedule to do it, but Janmark has an outside chance of challenging the career-high 19 goals he put up with the Stars in 2017-18.

The 26-year-old has emerged as a reliable checking forward for the Stars over the last three seasons, but his offensive contributions took a steep dive last year -- after scoring 19 goals and 34 points the year before, Janmark saw those numbers tumble to six and 25, both career lows. Some poor shooting percentage luck (just 5.7 percent) and a loss of his role on the second power-play unit were both to blame, but while the former could see positive regression, Janmark's not likely to regain those man-advantage minutes with Joe Pavelski and Corey Perry now in town. His defensive contributions remain valuable to the Stars, but his fantasy upside is limited.
After missing all of 2016-17 due to a knee injury, Janmark returned to action last season and posted respectable numbers aside from the minus-13 rating that came along with his checking assignments. The 25-year-old plays a prototypically solid, smart two-way game for a player developed in the Swedish system, and his versatility is a definite asset, but it's still an open question whether he can supply enough offense to consistently hold down a top-six role in the NHL. The Stars are desperate for secondary scoring behind the Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn duo, though, so look for Janmark to get plenty of opportunities to stick on the second line, potentially putting him in line for his first 20-goal, 40-point campaign.
Janmark missed all of last season following October knee surgery, and in his absence a number of other young Stars forwards began to stake out claims to regular NHL jobs. don't write the 24-year-old Swede off, however. He scored 15 goals and 29 points in 73 games as a rookie in 2015-16, and his consistent two-way play mark him as a potential pillar of the checking lines if his knee issue didn't cost him a step. Janmark isn't likely to make a big offensive contribution this year, especially considering the team’s offseason free-agent acquisitions, but he could help improve on Dallas’ anemic defensive showing last season.
A third-round pick by the Red Wings in 2013, Janmark was acquired by Dallas for Erik Cole in March of 2015, finished out his final year in Sweden, and then came over to the NHL last season. He made an immediate impact, opening his North American career with a four-game point streak and then settling in as a reliable presence in the Stars’ bottom-six mix. It’s unclear how much fantasy appeal the 23-year-old has in the long term, though – he plays a solid two-way game, but lacks physicality and may never score quite enough to satisfy owners. But he also has a cake slot on the Stars’ second line alongside Jason Spezza, which is enough to make him a late-round flier.
Janmark-Nylen had a big year in Sweden in 2012-13 and will continue to hone his skills there in 2013-14.
