2019 Fantasy Outlook
Since getting drafted fourth overall in 2016, Puljujarvi has amassed 37 points in 139 games with Edmonton. The Oilers have not been able to get the best out of the 21-year-old Swede, a reality that has led Puljujarvi to request a trade -- otherwise, the youngster has vowed to play the 2019-20 season in Europe. While it's only a matter of time before he is on a different NHL club, nothing we've seen from Puljujarvi to this point gives us confidence to draft him in fantasy leagues. A change of scenery could very well unlock his true potential, but until such time that a trade goes down, steer clear. Read Past Outlooks

Puljujarvi agreed to terms on a one-year contract with Karpat (Finland) on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Per Sportsnet's Chris Johnston, Puljujarvi's deal includes an NHL-out clause that would allow him to rejoin the Oilers ahead of the 2020-21 campaign. In the meantime, the winger will remain with Karpat, for which he notched 24 goals and 29 helpers in 56 appearances last year.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2016
The Oilers' fourth overall pick from 2016 displayed flashes of his lofty draft consideration in 2017-18, unloading 20 points in 65 games, despite only netting four points in the club's final 20 contests. Puljujarvi is once again expected to have a role with the big club in 2018-19 but needs more consistency before he can be trusted. However, the speedy winger could be in line for an impressive campaign if he is able to suit up across from Connor McDavid and/or Leon Draisaitl.
Puljujarvi's first season in North America was a mixed bag, as the 2016 draft's No. 4 overall pick flashed his offensive ability with AHL Bakersfield (28 points in 39 games), but it didn't show up quite so much in his 28 contests with Edmonton. One of the top prospects to come out of Finland in a long time, he scored just a single goal to accompany seven assists at the NHL level, as he wasn't trusted with big minutes (11:15 on average) in his rookie campaign and was often a healthy scratch before ultimately playing out the back end of the season in the minors. However, we're talking about one of the highest-upside players in the league, and he's still just 19 years old -- Puljujarvi has tons of room to improve, and he's in a good situation to do so on an Edmonton club that's relatively thin at his natural position, right wing. He’s a player to watch in training camp, as the elite upside is awfully intriguing for fantasy purposes.
Puljujarvi is a big winger who was picked fourth in the 2016 draft after drawing the inevitable Teemu Selanne comparisons bound to follow any elite Finnish prospect. Edmonton’s need at right wing gives him a decent chance of making the roster immediately, though expectations should be tempered as the 18-year-old adjusts to the NHL after registering 28 points over 50 games for Finland’s Karpat in 2015-16. If his 17 points in seven games at the 2016 World Junior Championships are any indication, Puljujarvi has the chance to develop into quite the contributor in due time. Make sure he’s owned in keeper formats, but those in yearly leagues have the luxury of monitoring him from a distance unless he happens to make the NHL team in a premier role right away.
