2018 Fantasy Outlook
Aston-Reese made his NHL debut this past February, appearing in 16 games and tallying six points through 11:23 of average ice time. A battler in the corners, the converted winger will be coming off jaw surgery following a vicious blow to the head during the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs, but he's expected to be ready to go for the start of training camp. The talented youngster's scoring touch has been on display in both college and the minors, and he's shown glimpses in limited NHL action. Even if Aston-Reese makes the 23-man roster for Opening Night, the two-way aspect of his contract means he can be freely sent to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for expedited development. Plus, Dominik Simon will give him a run for his money in camp. Read Past Outlooks

The Penguins recalled Aston-Reese from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
The Penguins are hoping Aston-Reese will be able to provide them with a spark up front, as they've struggled offensively during their last three games, scoring just three goals while posting an 0-2-1 record. The 24-year-old forward has been productive in the minors this season, notching six goals and nine points in 11 contests.
