2018 Fantasy Outlook
Kunin's first full season as a pro didn't exactly go as the Wild had planned. The 20-year-old acquitted himself fairly well with AHL Iowa, scoring 10 goals and 19 points in 36 games, but he didn't make much of an impact with the big club before a torn ACL ended his campaign in early March. The 15th overall pick in the 2016 draft has a strong all-round skill set, and his offensive ceiling is boosted by an exceptional hockey IQ that seems to consistently put him in the right place at the right time in all three zones. Kunin's recovery has gone well and he should be 100 percent by training camp, but a return to the AHL to begin 2018-19 isn't out of the question. Once he's proven his knee is fine, however, look for him to quickly challenge for a top-nine spot. Read Past Outlooks

The Wild sent Kunin back to AHL Iowa on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Kunin should get some more games on his resume as AHL Iowa makes a push for a postseason berth. While he has yet to click at the top level, owning just 17 points through 49 contests, the 15th overall pick in 2016 could be a breakout candidate next year if they Wild invest in some surrounding talent this offseason.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
The 15th overall pick in the 2016 draft got his profession career off to a promising start by scoring five goals with two assists in 12 games in the AHL last year after playing for the University of Wisconsin. He could be an impact player when he reaches the NHL. He'll compete for a roster spot in training camp, but most likely begins the season in the AHL again.
