2020 Fantasy Outlook
Boqvist was decent as a 19-year-old rookie last season, totaling four goals and 13 points, two of which came with the man advantage, while posting a minus-3 rating and averaging 16:13 of ice time in 41 contests. Looking ahead to his sophomore campaign, Boqvist's ice time should increase substantially as he skates alongside Duncan Keith on Chicago's top pairing while also being deployed on the second power-play unit, but he almost certainly won't produce enough offense on a poor Blackhawks squad to be worth rostering in fantasy. The 20-year-old Swede could develop into a decent depth option from a fantasy standpoint over the next few years, but virtual managers don't need to have Boqvist on their radar heading into this year's drafts.

April 14, 2021
Boqvist is in the NHL's concussion protocol.
ANALYSIS
Boqvist logged just 42 seconds of ice time during Monday's win over the Blue Jackets before exiting with a concussion. With Boqvist set to miss time, the Blackhawks added defensemen Nicolas Beaudin and Ian Mitchell to their taxi squad Wednesday. Another update on Boqvist, who's picked up 15 points in 32 games this season, should surface once he's cleared to return to practice.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Boqvist, the Blackhawks top defensive prospect, excelled in the OHL last year, racking up 20 goals and 60 points in 54 games with the London Knights. The eighth overall pick from the 2018 draft has the potential to be a bonafide No. 1 blueliner for Chicago in the future, but the 'Hawks aren't going to rush his development. Boqvist will turn pro in 2019-20, but he'll likely spend the entirety of the campaign continuing to hone his craft with AHL Rockford. The 18-year-old Swede is definitely worth stashing in dynasty formats, but he likely won't be worth a look in re-draft settings for at least one more season.
Boqvist played last season in his native Sweden but hopped the pond after being selected eighth overall by the Blackhawks in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, signing with OHL London. Heading into his age-18 season, the blueliner is viewed as possessing top-pairing potential with offensive upside down the road. Still, he's likely a at least a year or two away from making a splash at the NHL level and possesses value primarily as a dynasty piece.
