2019 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Ethan Bear in 2019. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
$Signed a three-year, entry-level contract with Edmonton in July 2016.
Solid in first full season
DEdmonton Oilers
October 23, 2020
Bear produced five goals and 21 points in 71 games in 2019-20.
ANALYSIS
Bear played his first full NHL season last year and earned a large role, averaging 21:58 of ice time per game. The 23-year-old blueliner seems to be a lock for the Oilers' top-four, but he may lose some offensive opportunities with Tyson Barrie now in the fold. Bear added 106 blocked shots and a minus-4 rating last season. He should be able to make improvements on offense next year -- it wouldn't be shocking to see him register 30 points if there's a full 82-game campaign. Most of his production is expected to come at even strength.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Edmonton has been desperate to find an offensive blueliner for years now, so it wasn't the least bit surprising that Bear went to the Oilers in the fifth round of 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Now 21 years old, he appeared in 18 games to support the Orange Crush last season, totaling one goal and three assists in that span. Bear's true potential can be witnessed in the AHL ranks, as he's collected 18 points in 37 games with Bakersfield, but it's important not to overlook the fact that the Saskatchewan native logged meaningful playing time (18:38) and even saw action with the first power-play unit as an Oilers rookie. Bear belongs on dynasty-league rosters and it's only a matter of time before he's a household name in redraft settings. With Andrej Sekera (knee) and Oscar Klefbom (shoulder) questionable to fully bounce back from their respective injuries, the young blueliner's time could come sooner rather than later.
The Oilers struck gold by selecting Bear in the fifth round of the 2015 draft, as he's gone on to post a pair of spectacular seasons in the WHL, including 28 goals and 70 points with a plus-34 rating over 67 games last year -- huge numbers for a blueliner. Now 20 years old, he'll take his talents to the AHL along with fellow offensive defenseman and 2015 draft value Caleb Jones this season. An accomplished playmaker and shooter, Bear is approaching must-own status in dynasty formats, and if he carries his production over to the pro level, it might not be all that long until he’s patrolling Edmonton’s blue line -- though that probably won't happen this season.
