2018 Fantasy Outlook
It took awhile for the 2017 No. 2 overall pick to get going, but he caught fire at the end of the season, posting eight goals and 16 points in his final 24 games. That turned out to be more than half of his regular-season point total, as the 19-year-old finished the campaign with 13 goals and 30 points in 73 games. During the final two months, his playing time at both even strength and on the power play increased according, and eight of his 30 points came with the man advantage. The Flyers have enough faith in Patrick that they plan to keep Claude Giroux at wing next to Sean Couturier on the top line. With the departure of Valtteri Filppula, Patrick will center the second line next to wingers such as Jakub Voracek, Travis Konecny, Wayne Simmonds or newly signed free agent James van Riemsdyk. With that kind of talent surrounding him, Patrick appears ready to take another step forward in 2018-19. Read Past Outlooks

Big night against Wings
CPhiladelphia Flyers
February 16, 2019
Patrick scored a goal and two assists while adding three shots, two blocked shots, two hits and a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 6-5 overtime win over the Red Wings.
ANALYSIS
The 20-year-old was sluggish coming out of the All-Star break, managing only two goals and an assist in the last nine games with a minus-4 rating, but Patrick snapped out of his slump with authority in this one. On the season, the second overall pick in 2017 has only 12 goals and 23 points in 51 games, but he continues to flash impressive upside.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
The Flyers lucked their way into the second overall pick in the draft and landed Patrick -- a huge get for a franchise that needed an infusion of forward talent. A native of Winnipeg, he's coming off an injury-shortened campaign for Brandon of the WHL in which he put up 46 points over 33 games, with sports hernia surgery and then a facial abscess causing him pain that’s lingered through the summer. Nonetheless, he’s expected to be ready for the start of the season, when it seems likely he'll serve as the third-line center behind Claude Giroux and Sean Couturier. Those are two great guys to learn the ropes from, and Patrick’s talent should win him some power-play time, but it’s wise for fantasy owners to moderate expectations for his first NHL campaign. Unless he finds his way into top-six minutes somehow, it'll be tough for him to crack 50 points.
