2019 Fantasy Outlook
Sorensen logged his first full NHL season at the ripe age of 26 in 2018-19, totaling 17 goals and 30 points while posting a plus-10 rating in 80 contests with San Jose. The Swedish winger will return to a bottom-six role with the Sharks in 2019-20, and although it's possible that he'll continue to improve in his second full campaign, it's also possible that he'll stagnate or even regress. In other words, Sorensen is a bit of an unknown commodity heading into the upcoming season, so fantasy owners may want to pass him over in favor of a player with a longer track record or higher upside (or both) in the last few rounds of this year's drafts.

Sorensen (undisclosed) won't play in Sunday's home game against the Flames.
ANALYSIS
Sorensen has missed the last two games with an undisclosed injury, and it's still unclear with what sort of injury he's dealing with. In any event, Melker Karlsson and Lukas Radil will draw into the lineup on the fourth line for the game. Sorensen's next chance to suit up is Wednesday against the Hurricanes.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Sorensen only appeared in 32 games with the Sharks in 2017-18, totaling five goals and seven assists while averaging just 10:09 of ice time over that span. The 26-year-old winger was impressive in the playoffs, racking up four goals and five points in 10 contests, but there's no reason to expect that success will carry over into the 2018-19 regular season. Sorensen's lack of offensive production and minor role in San Jose will once again keep him off the radar in all but the deepest of season-long fantasy formats.
Transitioning from European hockey to the North American landscape has been a relatively seamless process for Sorensen, who the Sharks nabbed in the fourth round (106th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. He appeared in 43 games with the AHL's San Jose Barracuda last season, accumulating 17 goals and 17 assists to mirror the offensive output he had with Djurgardens IF of the Swedish Hockey League in 2015-16. Evidently confident in his abilities, the Sharks unleashed Sorensen for 19 regular-season contests and the winger kicked in two points in six games in the 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs -- despite averaging fewer than 11 minutes per affair. Since the Sharks share a rink with their minor-league affiliate, temper expectations for Sorensen as he's likely to shuffle between the NHL and AHL a fair amount in the upcoming season.
