2019 Fantasy Outlook
Tolvanen picked up 15 goals and 35 points in 58 games in his first full AHL campaign last year. The 2017 first-round pick will likely spend another full season in the minors, though, as the Predators have a ton of depth up front heading into the 2019-20 campaign. Tolvanen could earn a call-up or two this season, but he won't be worth a draft pick outside keeper/dynasty formats this year. That said, if he lights up the AHL this campaign, he'll be a name to keep an eye on heading into 2020-21. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Predators in March of 2018.
Sent to AHL

September 22, 2019
Tolvanen was sent to AHL Milwaukee on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
It's a bit of a surprising move as many believed that Tolvanen had a chance at cracking the Opening Night roster for Nashville. Instead, he'll return to AHL Milwaukee where he scored 15 goals and 35 points last season. The 20-year-old forward will almost certainly get some NHL time in this season, though.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Tolvanen is considered one of the top prospects currently playing outside the NHL. The Predators took him in the first round of the 2017 Entry Draft (30th overall), and made headlines in March when they signed him to the same kind of fully-loaded, entry-level contract usually reserved for the likes of Connor McDavid, Jack Eichel and Auston Matthews. In 2017-18, the prospect had a record-setting rookie season in the KHL, scoring 19 goals and 36 points - both totals being the highest by an under-19 player in league history. So, needless to say, he's coming into the organization with considerable hype. At this point, it's safe to assume he will be an impact player in the NHL - the only question is, how soon? It's already been decided that Tolvanen will start the new season in the minors, but he might only be one injury away from the big stage. Tolvanen should fly under the radar in most deeper fantasy formats, so keep him on your draft lists and be ready to snap him up in the later rounds.
