2021 Fantasy Outlook
After enjoying a strong sophomore campaign in which he scored 24 goals and 61 points, Svechnikov's offensive output dropped dramatically last season. He tallied 42 points through 55 games while setting career lows in goals (15) and shooting percentage (10.2). The 6-foot-2 winger averaged a career-high 17:32 of ice time per game and racked up over 100 hits for the third straight season. Svechnikov has a secure role on the top line alongside Sebastian Aho, giving him a fairly high ceiling. The 21-year-old winger is a prime bounceback candidate for the 2021-22 season.

Pockets power-play assist

November 16, 2021
Svechnikov recorded a power-play assist and four hits in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Golden Knights.
ANALYSIS
Svechnikov earned the secondary helper on Sebastian Aho's first-period marker. It's been a playmaker's month in November for Svechnikov, who has seven assists (four on the power play) in his last six games. The Russian winger is up to 18 points, 45 shots on net, 26 hits and a plus-9 rating in 14 games. He's worked in a top-six role this year, and it appears the second overall pick from 2018 could push for career-best production.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
Svechnikov broke out in a big way during his sophomore season in 2019-20, racking up 24 goals, 37 assists, 20 power-play points, 183 shots on goal, 54 PIM and 116 hits in 68 regular-season contests. The Russian winger will only be 20 years old when the upcoming campaign gets underway, so the best is obviously yet to come for the second overall pick from the 2018 draft . Svechnikov's role will only continue to grow in year three, so a 30-plus goal, 75-plus point pace won't be out of the question as he continues to feature on the Hurricanes' first line and top power-play unit. Svechnikov's rare combination of a high floor and a near-limitless ceiling will make him more than worthy of a pick within the first three rounds of this year's fantasy drafts.
Svechnikov is most famous for getting absolutely destroyed in an ill-advised fight with Alex Ovechkin during Carolina's first-round playoff series against Washington last season, but behind that punching bag is a talented hockey player. The Russian dressed in every regular-season game and scored 20 goals as a rookie after being selected second overall in the 2018 draft, and Svechnikov is likely to see significant improvement considering he doesn't turn 20 until March. Just how much he improves will be contingent on landing a spot in the top six and on the No. 1 power-play unit, but Svechnikov has a good chance to do both given his diverse offensive skill set.
Svechnikov to the Hurricanes No. 2 overall this past June was decided upon early in the draft process and the big Russian will now have the opportunity to make an immediate impact in Carolina. While Svechnikov is your prototypical power forward in some ways, he is also a terrific, underrated playmaker. He has a complete all-around offensive game and should be able to handle opposing defenders from the get-go given how physically mature he is for an 18-year-old kid. Svechnikov has nothing left to learn playing junior hockey and it would be a monumental upset if he doesn't spend the entire year in the NHL. Fantasy owners can easily bank on 15-20 goals from the rookie in his freshman campaign. Svechnikov is arguably the top forward prospect in the entire league.
