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

Green lit for Game 1
CPittsburgh Penguins
April 10, 2019
Aston-Reese (upper body) will take part in Wednesday's Game 1 against the Islanders, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
ANALYSIS
Aston-Reese will flank Matt Cullen and Garrett Wilson on the Pens' bottom line for the playoff opener. The second-year forward compiled 17 points -- eight goals and nine assists -- while posting a 10.5 shooting percentage in 2018-19, good enough to earn his inclusion on the postseason roster. While his involvement may be limited a bit more in the playoffs, Aston-Reese could still be utilized as a lineup filler in daily contests.
