Roope Hintz

Roope Hintz

25-Year-Old Left WingLW
Dallas Stars
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Despite playing through a groin injury during the bulk of last season, Hintz produced at better than a point-per-game pace with 15 goals and 28 assists in just 41 contests. The injury made him a true game-time decision virtually every day, which likely frustrated fantasy managers who couldn't ignore his production. With offseason surgery, Hintz is expected to be good to go in 2021-22, and the expectation is for even stronger numbers from the Finn. He's shown the ability to maintain a shooting percentage north of 15, and that could translate to at least a 60-point pace as a top-line option for the Stars. He's also likely to play a large role on the power play and add at least one hit per game. It's not too much of a reach to snag the 24-year-old in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
Hintz made an impact in 2019-20, producing 19 goals, 33 points and 73 hits in 60 appearances with the Stars. He started the year on fire with 11 points in his first 16 games before regressing slightly. Still, the speedy forward showed what he's capable of. Hintz is likely to play in all situations in 2020-21 -- he had two shorthanded goals last year. The Finn should approach a 50-point pace and mix in a hit or two every game as well. He may not shoot 15.8 percent again this season, but he'll still be worth a middle-to-late round pick in standard fantasy formats.
Hintz spent most of the season on the Stars roster, playing 58 games in his NHL debut, and the 22-year-old remarkably posted identical scoring totals at both the NHL and AHL levels with nine goals and 22 points at each stop. As the campaign progressed, Hintz earned coach Jim Montgomery's trust and saw time on the power play, and he also began to use his 6-foot-3 frame more effectively, racking up 87 hits. He has the skills and tools to be an effective modern-day power forward, but his ascent to a consistent top-six role may have hit a snag when the front office brought in Joe Pavelski and especially Corey Perry over the summer. If Perry suffers through another injury-marred season, however -- or the veteran simply gets outplayed -- Hintz could still put together a breakout year.
A second-round pick in 2015, Hintz has yet to make his NHL debut despite some stints in the press box for Dallas last season, but that should change in 2018-19. The 21-year-old made a strong debut in the AHL, scoring 20 goals in 70 games, and while he doesn't play with the physical edge expected of a 6-foot-3 winger, his impressive hockey IQ and strong skating mark him as a future offensive threat and two-way player who could be an asset in a top-six role. Hintz may not be quite ready to handle a regular shift for the Stars, but with the team looking for some consistent secondary scoring, there will be opportunities for him to skate with the big club if he catches the coaching staff's eyes in training camp.
