2018 Fantasy Outlook
Hischier made an instant impact after being selected first overall in the 2017 draft, recording 20 goals and 32 assists while playing in all 82 games. The Swiss center doesn't turn 20 until Jan. 4, so it's safe to say his best days are still ahead of him. All but six of Hischier's points last season came at even strength, and that 5-on-5 success can be credited to skating on the same line as superstar winger Taylor Hall. Hischier faces almost no competition for the first-line center spot, so he should benefit from Hall's brilliance once again as a sophomore. Given his robust skill set, the young pivot is also capable of taking a major step forward with the extra man after totaling only six power-play points as a rookie. Read Past Outlooks

Sparks offense in loss

Hischier scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Capitals.
ANALYSIS
He gave the Devils a brief spark of hope after they fell behind 4-1 midway through the third period, scoring their second goal and setting up their third, and Hischier could have easily had another couple points if not for some big saves by Braden Holtby. The teenager missed four games in November with an upper-body injury but finishes the month with two goals and seven points in 11 games, as Hischier continues to flash the offensive skill that made him the first overall pick in the 2017 draft.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Selected first overall in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, Hischier brings a dynamic offensive presence to a Devils team that's ranked no better than 27th in league scoring for the past five years. The 18-year-old Swiss National manufactured a whopping 38 goals, 48 assists and plus-20 rating with the Halifax Mooseheads of the QMJHL last regular season before eclipsing a point per game in the playoffs for his junior club. Having lit it up in the preseason -- we're talking four goals in as many games to complement three assists -- Hischier cracked the Opening Night lineup and pulled down a top-six job, so he can be deployed in all league settings immediately.
