2018 Fantasy Outlook
Eliciting comparisons to Calgary's Sean Monahan and even a flashier Nick Bjugstad of the Panthers, Rasmussen is an intriguing prospect for the Red Wings. The 19-year-old power forward is listed at 6-foot-6, 221 pounds but scouts say he's surprisingly nimble and doesn't let his massive frame get in the way of production. A quick peek at his junior numbers is enough to leave prospective fantasy owners drooling over Rasmussen; he amassed 81 goals and 76 assists over 161 games for the WHL Tri-City Americans between 2014-18 and captained the club during an abbreviated run at the 2018 WHL Cup, notching 33 points through the third round against Everett. He's exempt from waivers with two years left on an entry-level contract, and Rasmussen should transcend keeper/dynasty interest since he figures to crack the Opening Night roster with Detroit.

First career two-point night
CDetroit Red Wings
February 7, 2019
Rasmussen scored a power-play goal and added an assist in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Golden Knights.
ANALYSIS
The 19-year-old missed the last 10 games with a hamstring injury, and he returned to action with a purpose, notching two points in the third period to give the Red Wings a semblance of life. The ninth overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft played 14:57, over two minutes above his season average, and posted the first two-point night of his career. This outing shows Rasmussen's potential and should give Detroit faith that its right side is bolstered if Gustav Nyquist is traded before the deadline.
