Winnipeg Jets
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Pionk has shown some promise offensively with 40 points in 101 NHL games, but he's also struggled mightily in his own zone and owns a minus-17 rating. Getting traded from the Rangers to the Jets in the offseason will result in a reduced role for Pionk after he averaged 21:10 of ice time last season, but he'll also benefit from playing sheltered minutes on one of the league's most talented teams. While Pionk's scoring ability is intriguing, his shortcomings in the defensive end will make it tough for him to carve out anything more than a third-pairing role with Winnipeg. Read Past Outlooks

Records power-play helper

March 7, 2020
Pionk picked up a power-play assist in Friday's 4-0 win over the Golden Knights.
ANALYSIS
Pionk is in the midst of a career year, with 44 points (25 on the power play), 168 shots on goal and 159 hits through 69 contests. Expect the 24-year-old defenseman to remain the quarterback of the top man-advantage unit in Winnipeg -- it's been a productive role for Pionk thus far.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Pionk performed well in his first NHL action last season, posting 14 points in 28 games, including five on the power play. He'll almost certainly wind up spending the full season with the big club this time around, and it wouldn't be surprising to see the 23-year-old defenseman skating on the second defensive pairing and second power-play unit. The University of Minnesota-Duluth product has good offensive instincts on the blue line and held his own with a minus-1 rating as a rookie, so there's a lot to like about Pionk, especially in dynasty formats.
