2020 Fantasy Outlook
Valimaki's recovery from an ACL injury kept him off the ice for all of the 2019-20 season. The Finn has struggled with health since he was drafted in the first round in 2017 by the Flames. However, he's picked up playing time in his native Finland while awaiting the start of the 2020-21 season in North America. All signs point to Valimaki filling an NHL role this year, although how much playing time the 22-year-old will receive is uncertain. He's certainly an intriguing name to keep an eye on in dynasty formats, but Valimaki may still be a year or two away from widespread fantasy relevance. A positive year would see him produce at a 20-point pace or better. Read Past Outlooks

April 13, 2021
Valimaki scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win versus Toronto.
ANALYSIS
Valimaki opened the scoring less than five minutes into the game, converting a perfect tape-to-tape backdoor feed from Milan Lucic. It was just the second goal in 38 games this season for the sophomore defenseman, who was the 16th overall pick in 2017.

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.
