2019 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Jakub Zboril in 2019. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
$Signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Bruins in July 2015.
Sent to AHL
DBoston Bruins  Minors
October 1, 2019
The Bruins have assigned Zboril to AHL Providence.
ANALYSIS
Zboril, who the Bruins took 13th overall in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, is in the last year of his entry deal with the team, so this is a pivotal campaign for the 22-year-old blueliner, who logged four goals and 19 points in 56 games with Providence last season. When he was drafted, Zboril was viewed as an offensive-minded defenseman with a bit of a mean streak, so there's some untapped upside here. An in-season recall when injuries on the Boston blue line pile up seems likely for Zboril.

2015
Overall, the 2015 first-rounder recorded four goals and 19 points to go along with a plus-12 rating in 68 games for AHL Providence in his first season as a pro. A strong finish to his campaign signaled that the 21-year-old's game is starting to round out and he could make a run at an NHL job as soon as next season. With blue-line prospects Rob O'Gara and Ryan Lindgren previously having been dealt by the Bruins, Zboril -- who is 6-foot-2, 190 pounds -- and Providence teammate Jeremy Lauzon profile as the organization's next wave of young talent on the back line.
Now set to begin his pro career, the No. 13 overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft could potentially push for a spot with the big club to start the 2017-18 campaign, but it would probably take a slew of injuries for the 20-year-old to land a roster spot. An offensive-minded defenseman with a bit of a mean streak, Zboril is coming off a 2016-17 season that saw him record nine goals and 41 points in 50 games for QMJHL Saint John. While fellow youngsters Charlie McAvoy and Brandon Carlo have already graduated to the NHL, Zboril heads Boston's next wave of blue line prospects, a group that also includes Jeremy Lauzon, Matt Grzelcyk, Rob O'Gara and Ryan Lindgren.
Zboril, who was drafted 13th overall by the Bruins in the 2015 draft, saw his prospect stock take a temporary dip last season, after his production with the Saint John Sea Dogs dropped to six goals and 20 points (down from a 13/20/33 line in 44 games in 2014-15) in 50 QMJHL game. While he still needs to quiet those who have expressed concerns regarding his work ethic, Zboril still profiles as an offensive-minded defenseman with a bit of a mean streak -- something that would no doubt be welcomed by the B's faithful in Beantown. With the Bruins hungry for immediate blue line help, Zboril -- along with the likes of fellow youngsters Brandon Carlo and Jeremy Lauzon -- could make a run at a roster spot with the big club as soon as this season.
Selected 13th overall in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, Zboril is slated to return to Saint John for another season in the QMJHL. The 18-year-old native of the Czech Republic is coming off a 2014-15 campaign in which he notched 13 goals and 20 assists in 44 contests. While it will take some time before Zboril makes a legitimate push for an NHL roster spot, when he does, he could attain fantasy relevance down the road, given that he is considered an offensive defenseman with a bit of a mean streak.
