2020 Fantasy Outlook
Necas played well as a rookie in 2019-20, collecting 16 goals, 20 assists and nine power-play points in 64 games. The 21-year-old should see a significant jump in ice time during his sophomore campaign, as he'll be locked into a full-time, top-six role as well as a spot on the Hurricanes' second man-advantage unit. Necas has all the tools to produce at or above a 20- goal, 50-point pace while chipping in double-digit points on the power play in 2020-21, making him worthy of a late-round pick for fantasy managers looking to add forward depth during this year's drafts.

Necas scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Friday's 5-3 win over Chicago.
ANALYSIS
Both his points came in the third period as the Canes broke open a 2-2 tie with three straight tallies. Necas has looked good since rejoining the lineup last week, collecting a goal and four points in the last four games.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Necas got a cup of coffee at the NHL level last season, recording a goal and an assist over seven games for Carolina. He was then sent down to AHL Charlotte, where the Czech pivot delivered a respectable 52 points in 64 games. The Hurricanes' 2017 first-rounder will push for a permanent spot with the big club in camp, but it won't be handed to him given the team's substantial forward depth. While Necas could be worth a flier in redraft leagues if he makes the team, there's a good chance he'll get sent down for another year of AHL seasoning.
After returning to HC Kometa Brno in the Czech league last year, where he scored 17 points in 24 games (nine goals, eight assists), Necas went on to play in the IIHF World Junior Championships in December, tying for the tournament lead in scoring with 11 points (three goals, eight assists). The Canes are currently pretty thin down the middle, so the team won't hesitate to promote Necas to a full-time roster spot with the big club once it feels he's ready. At the Canes' development camp in June, Necas was noticeably bigger and oozed confidence, playing on a line with this year's second overall draft pick, Andrei Svechnikov - a hint of what a future line combination might look like in Carolina. Necas is certainly a player to keep an eye on for fantasy purposes.
