23-Year-Old DefensemanD
Arizona Coyotes
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Despite a shortened schedule, Chychrun rewrote the book for his career highs last year. He produced 18 goals, 23 assists and 176 shots on goal as a breakout defenseman in his fifth NHL campaign. A first-round pick from 2016, it's no surprise that Chychrun eventually found success. There's still reason to pump the brakes on expectations for the blueliner in 2021-22. The Coyotes are expected to enter a rebuild, which will likely lead to fewer scoring chances throughout the lineup. Chychrun also shot an unsustainably high 10.2 percent last year -- regression would likely put him down in the 7-to-8 percent range. He's still got 40-point potential with a power-play role, and the Florida native will likely add nearly 100 each of hits and blocked shots to stabilize his fantasy value even if his scoring stagnates.

Puts up helper
DArizona Coyotes
November 30, 2021
Chychrun registered an assist, three shots on net, two blocked shots and two PIM in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Wild.
ANALYSIS
Chychrun set up Anton Stralman for a third-period tally. With six points in his last nine games, Chychrun has rediscovered his touch on offense. He has seven points in 23 games this season, though his minus-25 rating continues to be a massive anchor on his fantasy value in formats that use that metric. He's added 74 shots on net, 32 hits, 27 blocked shots and 30 PIM in the non-scoring aspects of the game.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2018
2017
Chychrun enjoyed a step forward in his fourth NHL season, netting 12 goals, 14 assists and 149 shots on goal in 63 appearances in 2019-20. Bolstered by a shooting percentage of 8.1, Chychrun's success may not be fully repeatable. He did see more power-play time as the campaign went on -- he recorded eight of his 26 points with the man advantage. The 22-year-old rearguard plays with a physical edge, which adds to his fantasy value. Look for Chychrun to make another leap in his development as a consistent top-four blueliner in 2020-21. He should approach 30 points, 80 hits and 100 blocked shots in a full season, although playing for the low-scoring Coyotes may make him a slight drag in plus-minus.
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.
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.
