Detroit Red Wings
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Hronek is perhaps the most gifted scorer among Red Wings blueliners entering 2020-21. Last year, he netted nine goals and 31 points, and while he had a minus-38 rating, that's a product of him logging 23:54 per game on a team that was nearly always the second best on the ice. There's plenty to like about the 23-year-old Czech defenseman. He posted 105 hits and 74 blocked shots in 65 contests last year, showing he can contribute without scoring. Assuming the Red Wings improve from their league-worst play from last year, Hronek could challenge the 40-point mark in his third full season in 2020-21. With solid supporting numbers, Hronek is worth a middle-to-late round pick in fantasy drafts. Read Past Outlooks

Hronek delivered a power-play assist Saturday in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.
ANALYSIS
Hronek ended up playing in all 56 games for the Red Wings in the abbreviated season, adding two goals and 24 assists, 11 of which took place on the man advantage. Fantasy managers are looking forward to seeing what the power-play quarterback can do over a full season, as he's been limited to 167 contests through his first three years in the NHL.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
While injuries largely paved the way for Hronek to make an Opening Night appearance, the Czech defenseman ended up flaunting his offensive acumen to the tune of five goals and 23 points through 46 contests, including a goal and four helpers on the man advantage. His minus-10 rating -- while not very useful in fantasy settings -- could have been much worse as a rookie playing for a Detroit team that permitted 50 more goals than it scored. The Red Wings otherwise lack right-shot defenseman that can move the puck on the power play, and as a result, Hronek projects to secure a full-time, 20-minute role in 2019-20. More growing pains are expected, but the upside is readily apparent when it comes to No. 17.
Hronek set the offensive standard among defensemen for AHL Grand Rapids in 2017-18, amassing 11 goals and 28 assists to complement a plus-24 rating through 67 contests. Most of the hype is centered around Hronek's two-way game, with his first-rate instincts promising to bear fruit in the NHL someday. The Red Wings picked the Czech prospect in the second round (53rd overall) of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft after he dominated the OHL circuit with Saginaw having recorded more points (61) than games played (59). Considering the Wings finished 28th in scoring and ranked only four spots higher than that on the power play last season, Hronek should be fast-tracked to hockey's biggest stage, but a full-time role out of the gate is not guaranteed.
