Vancouver Canucks
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Stecher, after a disappointing 2017-18 campaign, returned to form last season, finishing 2018-19 with 23 points, 21 of them coming via the assist. For his career -- 217 games -- the 25-year-old defenseman only has six goals. The signing of Tyler Myers, along with the growth of Quinn Hughes, undoubtedly stands to impact Stecher's ice time as a member of the Canucks, which subsequently hurts his fantasy value. He may not see the 0:54 of average power-play time he benefited from a season ago. Projected as a late-round selection in most 2018-19 fantasy drafts, Stecher may go undrafted this season, but a lot will depend on how Canucks training camp plays out. Read Past Outlooks

Stecher collected his first point of the campaign during Wednesday's win over the Kings.
ANALYSIS
Stecher has been dressing on the third pairing, and seeing a career-low 12:34 of average ice time per game -- compared to his career-average 19:30. It's encouraging to see his name on the scoresheet, but the lack of ice time, and being removed from the power play severely hinders his value for the time being.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
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.
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.
