Neal Pionk
23-Year-Old DefensemanD
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.

Scores spectacular game-winning goal
DNew York Rangers
November 7, 2018
Pionk scored the game-winning goal in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Canadiens, while adding two shots, four blocks and a plus-2 rating.
ANALYSIS
Pionk went coast-to-coast to break a 3-3 tie with 2:44 remaining, scoring what was probably the goal of his life on a play that started with a spin move in his own zone and ended with a power move to the net. The 23-year-old defenseman is getting all the minutes he can handle in New York, and he's excelling with eight points through 13 appearances. Owners in search of help on the blue line shouldn't hesitate to scoop Pionk up if he's available.
