“Ghost” rebounded from a very disappointing 2016-17 to post some impressive numbers last season. In 78 games, he scored 13 goals and 65 points with a plus-10 rating. He experienced similar success in 2015-16, scoring 17 goals and 46 points in 64 games, but that season, he recorded an unsustainable 11.2 shooting percentage. Last season, the 25-year-old registered just a 5.9 shooting percentage, meaning his 2017-18 success is much more likely to continue. Of course, it helps that half of his points came with the man advantage (seven goals and 26 assists), and his shot volume increased too. After the usual elite suspects on the blue line are gone, owners would be smart to draft Gostisbehere, who could be competing for the Norris Trophy very soon.

  2. Shayne Gostisbehere 2017–18 Preseason Outlook
    A breakout star in his rookie year, Gostisbehere predictably fell back to earth as a sophomore, though his 39 points (23 of which came on the power play) certainly came in handy for fantasy owners. That minus-21 rating? Not so much, but at least he was in good company; nearly everyone on the Flyers struggled mightily at even strength. Ghost Bear is still a mere 24 years old, and we've seen what he's capable of doing on offense; with no one in the way of him enjoying major minutes this season, it’s reasonable to expect a step forward to some degree, but that'll depend on how his fellow youngsters come along -- not to mention whether the addition of Brian Elliott can help stabilize Philadelphia’s net. It’s promising that Gostisbehere was able to maintain solid health last year, appearing in 76 games, and his tantalizing high-floor, high-upside combo makes him an excellent pick for just about any fantasy blue line.
  3. Shayne Gostisbehere 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    Precious few defensemen have burst onto the scene with the sort of offensive spectacle that Gostisbehere brought with him upon being recalled from the AHL last November. He produced immediately, racking up 16 points in his first 22 games despite averaging less than 19 minutes of ice time. But that was just the appetizer – Ghost Bear’s main course was a record-setting point streak of 15 games, the longest ever by a rookie blueliner. No other NHL defenseman, Erik Karlsson included, has put together a streak like that in the last two decades. Gostisbehere ended up with 17 goals (sixth among blueliners), 46 points (17th) and 22 power-play points (tied for 13th) despite playing just 64 games. And that wasn’t even with first-unit minutes. As the 23-year-old enters his second NHL campaign, it’s scary to think just how good he could become. However, it’s worth noting his injury history – he had an ACL tear two years ago and underwent offseason surgery in May on his hip and abdomen, though that isn’t expected to affect his availability for the start of the season.
  4. Shayne Gostisbehere 2015–16 Preseason Outlook
    Gostisbehere got a taste of NHL action in 2014-15 when the Flyers called him up from AHL Lehigh Valley for two games in October, but shortly after returning to the minors, he suffered an ACL tear that would keep him sidelined for the rest of the season. The 22-year-old, who recorded five assists in five games with the AHL club before the injury, is expected to be back at 100 percent health by the time training camp opens in the fall. A strong camp might be enough for Gostisbehere to make the Flyers' Opening Night roster, but it’s far more likely that he heads back to Lehigh Valley in order to gain more seasoning. Once the 22-year-old shakes off the rust in the minors, he'll likely earn quick consideration for a return to the Flyers, as his tremendous skating ability and superior offensive instincts would certainly be welcome on the back end. The puck-moving blueliner sees the ice remarkably well and projects as a key fantasy player a few years down the road.
  5. Shayne Gostisbehere 2014–15 Preseason Outlook
    Following his graduation from Union College, Gostisbehere joined AHL Adirondack for the last two games of their season, registering a minus-2 with no points. It's expected that he'll start the upcoming season in the AHL and look to put together a solid rookie campaign in his first full year as a pro. He had a very successful NCAA career -- he ended it by taking home the ECAC Player of the Year and Best Defensive Defenseman awards -- and will look to show that he can translate his collegiate experience into success at the much more difficult minor-league level. Keeper owners should remember his name even if they can't spell it -- he has top-four stalwart and power-play QB written all over him.
