2019 Fantasy Outlook
Yamamoto has only appeared in 26 NHL games since Edmonton drafted him 22nd overall in 2017. Over those contests, he has a goal and three assists. Last season, with AHL Bakersfield, Yamamoto spent a good chunk of his time recovering from injuries but managed to put up 18 points. Expected back healthy for training camp following wrist surgery in May, the 2019-20 season figures to be Yamamoto's first full NHL campaign and, if all goes according to plan, he could wind up being one of several lucky players lining up alongside Connor McDavid and/or Leon Draisaitl. Despite his small stature, Yamamoto can use training camp to carve out a role alongside one of Edmonton's superstars, which could lead to big things for the 20-year-old. Read Past Outlooks

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Yamamoto dominated the WHL for the second consecutive season by registering 64 points (21 goals, 43 assists) in 40 games. The diminutive winger had dropped 42 goals and 99 points through 65 contests with Spokane the year before. While the 2017 first-round (22nd overall) draft pick failed to score a goal in the nine games he saw at the top level in 2017-18, he did collect three helpers. Turning 20 years old in September, he's expected to get a serious shot at earning a role with the big club during training camp. Yamamoto carries obvious dynasty league potential despite his pint-sized physical presence.
Yamamoto is dramatically undersized at 5-foot-8, 150 pounds, but his talent level is so high that Edmonton spent the No. 22 pick in the 2017 draft on him anyway. Small though he may be, the American winger has been hugely productive in juniors -- 99 points in 65 games last year -- and he made the hockey world sit up and take notice at the 2017 World Junior Summer Showcase by displaying his elite speed, shot and hockey IQ. He’s a gritty player, too, unafraid of going into the tough areas of the ice against much bigger skaters. The size earns him inevitable Martin St. Louis comparisons, and he’s among the little guys who actually have the raw ability to live up to that, though it wouldn't hurt to see him put a little more muscle on before he graduates to the NHL level.
