Pittsburgh Penguins
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Lafferty saw action in 70 games with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton last year, notching 13 goals and 36 helpers over that span. Even if the Brown University product puts together a solid showing at training camp, the Penguins will almost certainly send him back to their minor-league affiliate in order to ensure that he gets ice time, rather than watching from the press box inside PPG Paints Arena. If he can continue to improve his game, Lafferty could carve out a role as a penalty-killing specialist with the big club in the future. Read Past Outlooks

Draws into Game 3
RWPittsburgh Penguins
August 5, 2020
Lafferty is in the lineup for Wednesday's Game 3 against Montreal.
ANALYSIS
Lafferty will make his playoff debut centering the third line between a pair of grizzled veterans in Patrick Marleau and Patric Hornqvist. At the NHL level, Lafferty managed a modest 13 points in 50 games as a rookie this year after putting up 49 in 70 with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in 2018-19. The 24-year-old was inserted into the lineup Wednesday in place of Jared McCann.
