2019 Fantasy Outlook
Chychrun struggled through injuries once again in 2018-19 but managed 20 points and 117 shots on goal in 53 contests. He's experienced a number of knee issues in a three-year career so far but should enter the 2019-20 campaign in good health. The 16th overall pick from 2016 will look to take a step forward this season in an attempt to secure top-four minutes. Chychrun has shown he can produce solid offensive output in less than a full season, giving him 30-point potential if he can stay healthy. That comes with a well-defined power-play role -- he posted eight points while averaging 2:33 per game with the man advantage last season. Chychrun could make a good sleeper pick this year despite his lengthy injury history. Read Past Outlooks

Scores in second straight game
DArizona Coyotes
November 9, 2019
Chychrun scored his fourth goal of the year and led the team with five shots in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Wild.
ANALYSIS
Three of Chychrun's four goals have come over the last six games, during which time he's registered 22 shots on goal. That's an encouraging sign for the 21-year-old, who did not top 20 points in any of his first three NHL seasons. A first-round draft pick in 2016, Chychrun might be trending toward an offensive breakout in 2019-20.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Chychrun is a toolsy competitor who could eventually mature into an elite NHL defenseman. At 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, the dual (American-Canadian) citizen exhibits supreme two-way awareness and appears cut from the same cloth as 2016 Norris Trophy winner Drew Doughty of the Kings. Unfortunately, knee problems have impeded his development. Chychrun sustained a significant injury to the joint while preparing for the 2017-18 campaign -- he would then opt for knee surgery in April after providing four goals, 10 assists and a plus-2 rating over 50 contests. The lefty shooter -- a product of the OHL's Sarnia Sting -- has recorded 11 goals and 23 helpers for a 0.28 points-per-game pace heading into this third season. Early signs point to Chychrun making a full recovery before training camp rolls around, giving him sleeper appeal as a defender locked in at 20-plus minutes per game.
Offseason knee surgery clouds Chychrun's fantasy outlook heading into the 2017-18 campaign, but everything he did last year as a rookie was promising. His 1.09 points per 60 minutes at five-on-five ranked 14th among all defenseman with at least 750 minutes, and he posted 20 points despite averaging just 31 seconds of power-play time per game. Chychrun owns the size, skating ability and offensive acumen to be an excellent virtual asset down the road, and he's likely to develop into a go-to defender for the Coyotes even sooner. He's also unlikely to receive the minutes or power-play looks to show significant offensive improvement this season.
