2019 Fantasy Outlook
Valimaki got his first taste of NHL action last season, notching a goal and two helpers in 24 regular-season contests before adding one assist in two playoff games. The 20-year-old may have spent even more time with the big club had he not dealt with an ankle injury which ended up costing him a significant portion of the campaign. In the minors, the Finn recorded four goals and 10 assists in 20 games, exhibiting why the Flames were willing to spend the 16th overall pick on him in 2017. Unfortunately, Valimaki suffered an ACL injury during offseason training and will miss nearly all of the 2019-20 campaign as a result. However, he's still viewed as a potential top-pairing defenseman, making him worth a stash in deeper dynasty leagues. Read Past Outlooks

Valimaki (knee) is participating in Tuesday's intrasquad scrimmage, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
ANALYSIS
Valimaki missed the entirety of the regular season after undergoing surgery in August to repair a torn ACL he suffered during offseason training, but it appears as though he'll be an option for the Flames during the playoffs if and when he's needed. The 2017 first-round pick notched three points in 24 appearances with the big club in 2018-19.
