2019 Fantasy Outlook
Sergachev's game is about to take a step forward. Underneath last year's drop in offensive production (from 40 points to 32) lies improvements in just about every part of his game, especially in his own zone. All he needs is more power-play time to gain greater fantasy relevance. Sergachev's five-on-five minutes will no longer be protected -- guys like Anton Stralman and Dan Girardi are long gone -- but he's ready for the responsibility. The 21-year-old's single-year value will hinge on how much ice time the second power-play unit gets. His drop in production in 2018-19 was the result of the Bolts' overuse of the first power-play unit (and non-use of the second). Dynasty owners should swoop in and try to pry this guy loose from his owner before the season begins. Read Past Outlooks

Two points in loss
DTampa Bay Lightning
September 11, 2020
Sergachev scored a goal on four shots, added an assist and took 10 PIM in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Islanders in Game 3.
ANALYSIS
Sergachev had a hand in two of the Lightning's three goals, but it wasn't enough to help the team avoid its first loss of the series. The 22-year-old blueliner is up to two goals and five assists with 32 shots and 37 hits through 16 games. With his helper Friday coming on the power play, he now has three points with a man advantage in the playoffs.

Sergachev delivered a 40-point rookie campaign and was every bit the stud the Canadiens drafted him to be. Wait. He's not playing for the Habs? Right. That Jonathan Drouin trade is looking more and more weighted in Tampa's favor. Little wonder the Senators asked for this 20-year-old in any deal involving Erik Karlsson. Sergachev is already among the Bolts' top defenders and will continue to grow his immense potential with protected minutes behind Victor Hedman, Ryan McDonagh and Anton Stralman. The young Russian will get to run the second power-play unit and should see his point totals grow a bit. It won't be long before he delivers consistent 55-60 point seasons, so push him up your dynasty draft.
Sergachev is a blue-chip prospect whose game has grown exponentially since the Habs drafted him ninth overall in 2016. He's an excellent skater with size who already shows elite two-way skills. He's feisty, bordering on aggressive, but poised and smart. Sergachev comes to Tampa with an OHL Defenseman of the Year Award (2016) and Memorial Cup (2017) on his trophy shelf and says he's ready for the NHL. But at just 19, his development is likely better served back in Windsor of the OHL, and Sergachev is probably headed back there given the logjam of defenders in Tampa. However, he’s excelled everywhere he's gone, so don't count him out until the season starts. Of course, keeper owners already know his name and should target him in the first round of any prospect draft.
Sergachev is a Russian native intent on playing in the NHL. Before his draft-eligible season, he left the safety of the motherland to play for the Windsor Spitfires in the Ontario Hockey League. As a testament to the kid's smarts and decision-making ability, the move paid off as he was selected ninth overall by the Canadiens in 2016 and becomes Montreal's best defensive prospect. Sergachev scored 17 goals with 40 assists in 67 games, while playing in all situations for the Spitfires. His 31 power-play points led all OHL blueliners, and the 18-year-old became the youngest player to win the award as the league's best defenseman. Cool and confident with the puck, the Russian is a smooth-skater that makes the right pass and is patient when given space and time. Defensively, he uses his size well and there isn't much development work left for him. At 6-foot-2, 208 pounds, he has a man's body that's ready to stand the rigors of the NHL, though we doubt Montreal will rush him.
Signed three-year, entry-level deal with the Canadiens in July 2016.
