2018 Fantasy Outlook
Part of a blockbuster deal that sent Matt Duchene to the Senators last season, Girard immediately stepped into a contributing role for the Avalanche in 2017-18. The rookie dished out 17 assists in his first NHL campaign, adding three goals of his own to finish the campaign with 20 points. His minus-8 rating suggests Girard has some work to do on the defensive end of the ice, but the 20-year-old should continue to round out the edges as he develops. He remains a key contributor on the power play, where he notched 12 of his points last season. That will likely remain central to his production in 2018-19. Read Past Outlooks

Girard dished out a pair of helpers in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Stars.
ANALYSIS
This was only Girard's second multi-point performance since Nov. 27. The 20-year-old blueliner has been terrific considering his age, but he's not ready to be an offensive force at the NHL level.
