2018 Fantasy Outlook
McCann played just 29 games at the NHL level during the 2016-17 season, splitting time between the big club and AHL Springfield. However, the 2014 first-round (24th overall) pick was able to earn an everyday role with the Panthers last season, scoring nine goals and 28 points across 68 appearances. He then signed a two-year deal to stay with Florida during the 2018 offseason, so the team is clearly confident in his ability to be a full-time NHL forward. After averaging 13:15 of ice time per game last year, that number should increase slightly, setting up McCann to clear 25 points once again in 2018-19. Read Past Outlooks
Quiet to open season

October 16, 2018
McCann has gone three games without a point to open the season while centering the third line.
ANALYSIS
The third line has been relatively unstable to open the season while head coach Bob Boughner attempts to find his team chemistry. While McCann has remained as the third-line center, he has seen his wingers swapped after almost every game this year. Last season, the 22-year-old scored nine goals and 28 points.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Acquired in an offseason trade from the Canucks prior to last season, McCann managed just one goal and seven points in 29 games with the Panthers; he spent most of the campaign in the AHL, where he scored 25 points in 42 games. Florida’s pretty deep down the middle, which means that if McCann sticks with the big club, it'll likely be as a winger. The 2014 first-round pick has lots of talent and is known for his speed and shooting ability, but he currently lacks the strength and experience to be a reliable offensive weapon in the NHL. McCann may split the season between the NHL and AHL as he continues to develop.
Vancouver’s 2014 first-rounder (24th overall), McCann totaled nine goals and nine assists in 69 games as a rookie last season, but was dealt to the Panthers in the offseason along with a couple picks for blueliner Erik Gudbranson. While the 20-year-old is a natural centerman, he’ll likely shift over to the wing – likely in a third-line role – due to Florida’s collection of young talent down the middle. Despite his pedigree, McCann doesn’t have game-breaking talent, but he’ll likely exceed last season’s production with a year of NHL experience under his belt.
