2019 Fantasy Outlook
Suzuki finished off a successful 2018-19 campaign in style, racking up 16 goals and 42 points in 24 playoff games with the Guelph Storm en route to an OHL championship. The Canadiens' top prospect was named playoff MVP for his efforts. The 2017 first-round pick also enjoyed a fantastic regular season, notching 94 points in 59 games split between the Storm and Owen Sound. Suzuki will turn 20 in August, so the juniors will be in his rearview mirror in 2019-20. He's expected to take his game to AHL Laval where he and fellow prospect Ryan Poehling will anchor the Rocket's offense. He'll probably remain at center for the majority of the upcoming campaign, but may be asked to play the wing if the big club is in need of reinforcements up front. Suzuki is likely still a year away from fantasy relevancy, but he should be owned in all dynasty leagues, and will be worth a waiver claim in redraft formats as a potential spot starter if and when he's called up to the show.

Might be healthy scratch

October 15, 2019
Suzuki was the spare forward during Monday's practice session and could be held out of the active lineup for Tuesday's game against Tampa Bay, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.
ANALYSIS
It looks like Nick Cousins (back) will make his season debut Tuesday while Jordan Weal takes Suzuki's spot on the second line. The 20-year-old Suzuki played more than 16 minutes in each of the last two games, but head coach Claude Julien has dropped him to the fourth line at times over the first five games. He has one assist and five shots to open the season.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Suzuki racked up an impressive 100 points in 64 outings for OHL Owen Sound last season and appeared ready to compete for a spot in the Vegas roster. Instead, the versatile forward finds himself shipped off to Montreal, where he will almost certainly have to move to wing -- something he is more than capable of -- in order to break into the lineup. Despite his upside, the youngster will likely start the year in the minors with AHL Laval, but don't be surprised to see him earn his NHL debut at some point this season.
