2019 Fantasy Outlook
Steel split time between AHL San Diego and the big club during his first professional season in 2018-19, notching an impressive 41 points in 53 minor-league contests while posting an additional 11 points in 22 games at the NHL level. A first-round pick from 2016, Steel is one of the best prospects in Anaheim's system. The 21-year-old should be a lock for the Opening Night roster this year, and could ultimately end up challenging Adam Henrique for the Ducks' second-line center job. With a strong two-way game and an already capable offensive skill set, Steel will definitely be worth a flier in all fantasy formats this season. If he can earn a role on the power play, the left-handed forward could post 15-plus goals and 40-plus points in 2019-20. Read Past Outlooks

Steel concluded the season having posted six goals and 16 assists in 65 games.
ANALYSIS
The sophomore's 22 points were marred by an unsightly minus-13 rating, but such is life when playing for one of the league's worst teams. Steel managed to produce over a third of his points (eight) on the power play, where he averaged 1:44 while often centering the team's top unit.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Viewed a defensive-minded center when drafted by Anaheim (30th overall) in 2016, Steel proceeded to post 214 points over his final two WHL seasons and now looks like a top-six guy who should be ready to help the Ducks as early as this season. Steel is a high-character player with elite hockey IQ. Anaheim has several aging forwards on its roster and even if the prospect begins the season in the AHL, he still figures to be looking at significant playing time for the Ducks sooner rather than later. Owners in deep redraft leagues would be wise to stash Steel if at all possible.
