2019 Fantasy Outlook
There are few players on the Penguins roster that will have more on the line during training camp than Simon and teammate Zach Aston-Reese, as the two will likely be battling for the same spot in the lineup following the offseason acquisitions of Dominik Kahun and Brandon Tanev. The 24-year-old Simon's willingness to battle for pucks along the boards could give him an edge over Aston-Reese, but even if he's able to secure a roster spot out of training camp, he'll likely be a healthy scratch on a semi-regular basis throughout the campaign. In other words, Simon will be hard pressed to improve upon the eight goals and 28 points he put up in 71 games last season in 2019-20. Read Past Outlooks

Shoulder
May 14, 2020
Simon underwent shoulder surgery April 29 and is expected to miss 6-to-7 months.
ANALYSIS
Simon was labeled week-to-week back in March prior to the league going on hiatus but will now be unavailable should the regular season or playoffs restart. In fact, even if the NHL pushes back the start date of the 2020-21 campaign into November, the Czech center could still be sidelined for Opening Night. When (if) the NHL resumes play, it's possible the Penguins' open spot in the lineup will go to Jake Guentzel (shoulder), who reportedly is on track to get back onto the ice when the rest of the team does.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2014
Simon's grip on a lineup spot with the Penguins should be considered tenuous at best, but heading into camp he figures to be ahead of Jean-Sebastien Dea, Zach Aston-Reese and Derek Grant. It would take a very solid season from the versatile winger to avoid spending some time in the press box or even in the minors, though any demotion would likely be temporary. Thus far, the Prague native has performed well at hockey's highest level, as he garnered 12 points in 33 contests last year, despite averaging a mere 11:25 of ice time.
