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

Kunin scored two goals on four shots and posted a plus-3 rating in a 5-4 loss to the Flyers on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
He's been playing a lot more minutes lately, and it's produced major results. Kunin has three goals, seven points and a plus-8 rating in the last five games. He's submitted a plus-3 rating in two of the last three contests. Kunin only has four goals and 12 points in 26 games this season, but seven of those 12 points have come in the last two weeks.

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.
