2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Will get qualifying offer

Puljujarvi (hip), who is a restricted free agent, will receive a qualifying offer from the Oilers, Sportsnet's Mark Spector reports.
ANALYSIS
This move isn't surprising despite the gulf between the player and the team, as the Oilers were never going to let the 2016 fourth overall pick simply walk away, even if they do intend to trade the disgruntled Puljujarvi. Puljujarvi's agent has said the forward would rather go to Europe than keep playing for Edmonton, where he has totaled just 37 points in 139 career games.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
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.
