2019 Fantasy Outlook
A strong showing at training camp will be critical for Aston-Reese, as he'll be in a head-to-head battle with Dominik Simon for a spot on the Penguins' fourth line. Simon likely has the inside track over the 24-year-old Aston-Reese given their respective point totals from last year (28 versus 17), but the situation is far from settled. Even if Aston-Reese is watching from the press box on Opening Night versus Buffalo, he should still get plenty of opportunities to play this season. Without a guaranteed spot in the lineup every night, Aston-Reese is at best a fringe fantasy option heading into 2019-20, but he could be a decent in-season pick up if the Pens suffer any long-term injuries.

Inks two-year deal
CPittsburgh Penguins
July 22, 2019
Aston-Reese agreed to terms on a two-year, $2 million contract with Pittsburgh on Monday.
ANALYSIS
Aston-Reese did have his arbitration hearing with the league Monday, but it appears that after that meeting, the two-sides were able to reach an agreement. The natural center's deal is one-way in nature, which all but ensures he won't have to spend any time in the minors. Heading into the 2019-20 campaign, the Staten Island native will need to beat out Dominik Simon for a spot in the lineup Opening Night versus Buffalo on Oct. 3.

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.
