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.

Rasmussen (upper body) likely has played his final game of the 2018-19 season, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports, citing head coach Jeff Blashill.
ANALYSIS
There are only six games remaining for a Detroit club that plans to be on the golf course during the Stanley Cup playoffs. Rasmussen produced eight goals and 10 assists to go with a minus-8 rating in his rookie season, and that's also complementary to four goals on the man advantage. It's clear that the 2017 ninth overall pick will be a fixture for the Winged Wheel for years to come, with his current injury likely to be an afterthought by the time drafts begin for the 2019-20 season.
