Nashville Predators
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. Read Past Outlooks

Tolvanen will join Team Finland at the 2019 World Junior Championships, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Tolvanen logged just four games in the NHL this season, and considering he is playing in the minors, there was little reason for the organization not to allow him to leave for World Juniors. Once he is back with the Admirals, the winger figures to be on the short list of potential call-ups throughout the rest of the season.
