2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Bolts shocked scouting circles when they used a second-round pick on Volkov in 2017, but then he delivered a 23-goal, 45-point rookie AHL season in 2017-18 and almost made the Bolts out of camp last year. It might be easy to say his game stagnated in 2018-19 back in the AHL, but that's the furthest from the truth. Volkov delivered his second-straight 23-goal season in 2018-19, and while he only put up 48 total points, his two-way game grew tremendously. Volkov is a better player now than he was a year ago when he almost made the Bolts. He could end up sticking on Tampa's bottom line this season, but he won't reach his middle-six ceiling for a few more years. Read Past Outlooks

June 24, 2020
Volkov has cleared the two-week quarantine period for overseas arrivals and can begin joining the Lightning at their Phase 2 workouts, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Volkov logged nine games for Tampa Bay this season, in which he recorded one assist, seven shots and 10 hits while averaging 10:16 of ice time. The 22-year-old winger spent the bulk of the year playing with AHL Syracuse, where he tallied 30 points in 46 contests, his first time failing to reach the 40-point mark in three minor-league campaigns.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Volkov is one of the top forward prospects in the Lightning system, and early signs point to the 21-year-old Russian having an outside chance of cracking the Opening Night roster with the parent club having amassed 23 goals, 22 assists and a plus-19 rating for AHL Syracuse -- not including six points in seven playoff games -- last season. He's known for penchant for weaving through the attacking zone and putting a ton of rubber on net. It would be prudent for forward-thinking fantasy owners to at least keep tabs on him.
