Rudolfs Balcers
23-Year-Old Left WingLW
Ottawa Senators
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Balcers has yet to make his NHL debut, but given the team's lack of depth up front, he could potentially make Ottawa's Opening Night roster this season. The 22-year-old forward was pretty productive in the minors last season, notching 17 goals and 31 points in 43 contests, and didn't look out of place during his time with the big club, either, posting five goals and 14 points in 36 appearances. He'll compete for a spot in the Senators' bottom six during training camp. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Senators in October of 2020.

ANALYSIS
Balcers appeared in 15 games for the Senators this season in which he registered one goal, two assists and 23 shots while averaging 12:08 of ice time. The winger will rejoin the club for training camp ahead of the 2020-21 campaign where he figures to compete for a spot on the 23-man roster.

In The System: Potentially Impactful AHL Players
September 11, 2018
AJ Scholz takes a look at some players that have performed at a high level in the AHL but have yet to make their NHL debut.
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Last season, Balcers put up 48 points in 67 games, playing for AHL San Jose. He also added four points in as many playoff contests with the Sharks minor-league affiliate. After a productive season in the AHL, the talented winger found himself packaged off to Ottawa where he figures to be given a chance in training camp to show he's ready for full-time NHL action. While he may not start the season in the show, chances are the native of Latvia works his way into the mix at some point this season. It's best to avoid him on draft night (unless he breaks camp with the big club), but monitor his status as he could be an under-the-radar waiver wire pickup down the road.
