2018 Fantasy Outlook
Signed as an undrafted free agent in 2014, O'Brien has been a dependable role player in the Capitals system for the last four seasons. The 24-year-old posted a career-high 17 goals in 2017-18 with AHL Hershey, and he's had consecutive 25-plus-point campaigns in the minors. Inked to a one-year, two-way extension in July, O'Brien should continue to deliver limited offense and a physical presence in the minors, but with only four NHL starts over the last two seasons, he has not established meaningful fantasy value to this point.

O'Brien signed a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Capitals on Monday.
ANALYSIS
The 24-year-old has spent most of his pro career with AHL Hershey, posting 15 goals, 28 points and 118 penalty minutes in 74 games during the 2018-19 season. The Nova Scotia native has an opportunity to earn a roster spot with the Capitals come training camp if there's significant roster turnover during the offseason, but he's a negligible fantasy asset until he can garner a consistent role in the NHL.
