2020 Fantasy Outlook
Weegar set a new career high in points (18) despite skating in only 45 games last year. The 26-year-old has developed into a solid top-four option for the Panthers, primarily for his defensive skills rather than his scoring. Weegar had 76 hits and 71 blocked shots last season while skating 20:07 per game. He won't have much value in standard fantasy formats, but his usage and reliable non-scoring contributions could make Weegar a valuable depth option in deeper formats. He's also not afraid to mix things up, so he'll provide a PIM boost while not tanking the plus-minus category. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a three-year, $9.75 million contract with the Panthers in November of 2020.

Weegar provided two assists and two shots on goal in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Blackhawks.
ANALYSIS
Weegar had a shot attempt tipped in by Alexander Wennberg on the power play in the second period. In overtime, Weegar set up Sam Bennett's game-winning goal. Through 50 outings, Weegar has 32 points, 91 shots, 110 hits, 73 blocked shots and a plus-23 rating. If he sticks on the power play, he could be a true all-around force in fantasy.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Weegar made a nice leap forward last season, but he'll need another one to work his way onto the fantasy radar. After recording eight points and 32 PIM in 60 games during 2017-18, the 2013 seventh-rounder climbed to 15 points and 64 PIM in 64 games. The rough stuff is nice for leagues that count PIM, but it's not hard to find comparable contributors in that category who offer significantly more offensive punch. Unless Weegar demonstrates some previously dormant scoring touch from the blue line, he'll continue to be an afterthought.
Florida's 2013 seventh-round (206th overall) draft pick blossomed into a full-time NHLer last season, but Weegar managed only two goals, six assists and a plus-5 rating over 60 games. The Canadian is physical but doesn't receive enough ice time (14:34 in 2017-18) to warrant fantasy attention outside of deep leagues.
