24-Year-Old DefensemanD

2018 Fantasy Outlook
He's the Canucks' best puck mover on the right side and also one of the team's best defensemen. Stecher's stats from last season - one goal, 11 points and 94 shots in 68 games - do not properly indicate how good he's been for the Canucks and how much he's grown. Coach Travis Green didn't seem convinced the undersized righty could handle a big workload and played Stecher just 16 minutes per night until January when Stecher started averaging 20 per game. At 5-foot-11, 191 pounds, size will always be a concern, but he's earned his spot in the top four and will likely share power-play duties with Alex Edler, Michael Del Zotto and Derrick Pouliot. His ability to contribute in both hits and blocked shots and potential upside on offense make him an interesting late-round pick in fantasy. Read Past Outlooks

February 8, 2019
Stecher picked up a power-play assist in Thursday's overtime loss to Chicago.
ANALYSIS
Stecher's helper resulted in tying the game in the final minutes, securing a much-needed point for the playoff race. That's his third point in his past five games, albeit his first point rooted from the power play. He's up to one goal and 16 assists through 51 games, and the defenseman has a reasonable chance at topping his career-high 24 points set in 2016-17.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Stecher was a pleasant surprise in his debut season with the Canucks, pacing all Vancouver blueliners with 24 points. The 23-year-old was given a significant role, playing close to 20 minutes a night and anchoring the team’s top power-play unit. Stecher possesses great offensive instincts and seems to read the play very well, so look for him to take another step forward in 2017-18. The Canucks didn't make wholesale changes this offseason, but Stecher should benefit from the continued growth of North Dakota teammate Brock Boeser, in addition to the acquisition of playmaker Sam Gagner. Stecher’s willingness to jump into the play and fire pucks on net arguably makes him the most valuable fantasy asset in Vancouver’s defensive corps.
