22-Year-Old DefensemanD
Edmonton Oilers
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Bouchard was quite clearly one of Edmonton's best six defenders a season ago, but for some reason he played just 14 games with the big club. He did manage five points in that brief span, but the Oilers' decision to not give Bouchard a substantial role is baffling. Oscar Klefbom will likely once again miss the upcoming season with a shoulder issue, but Edmonton doubled down by resigning Tyson Barrie and acquiring Duncan Keith from Chicago. Bouchard seems likely to earn a full-time gig this time around, but he's an offensive defenseman and Barrie has the quarterback role on Edmonton's No. 1 power-play unit locked up. Bouchard isn't going to have as much fantasy value as he probably should in 2021-22. Read Past Outlooks

Strikes on power play

May 20, 2022
Bouchard scored a power-play goal on five shots and added two PIM in Friday's 5-3 win over the Flames in Game 2.
ANALYSIS
Bouchard received a pass from Duncan Keith, stepped up around the right circle and unleashed a snipe for the game-tying goal. It was his third power-play goal between the regular season and the playoffs, and all three have come against the Flames. Through nine postseason contests, Bouchard is up to seven points, 21 shots on net, 14 hits, 10 blocked shots and a minus-2 rating.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2018
Bouchard spent all of 2019-20 in the minors, recording seven goals and 29 helpers in 54 outings with AHL Bakersfield. The right-shot blueliner's offense isn't in question, but at 21 years old, his overall game still has room for improvement. It'll likely be another year in the minors for Bouchard, who was loaned overseas to start 2020-21 before training camp opens in Edmonton. Dynasty managers will want to hold onto Bouchard -- the 10th overall pick from 2018 is only a year or two away from a full-time NHL gig, likely when Adam Larsson's contract expires at the end of the upcoming season.
Bouchard finished the 2018-19 season with AHL Bakersfield, collecting eight points in eight postseason contests. Prior to making his professional debut, Bouchard, 19, found the scoresheet 53 times in 45 games with the London Knights (OHL). The young blueliner should be ready to make the jump to the NHL in 2019-20 and will likely assume a top-4 role with an Oilers team desperately in need of offensive defensemen. Bouchard's fantasy value will be even more pronounced in dynasty formats considering his age and ceiling. If you're desperate, feel free to use a late draft pick on the youngster, but Bouchard will likely be available after most drafts, so keep that in mind when plotting out your 2019-20 strategy.
Less than a month after being selected 10th overall by the Oilers in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, Bouchard signed a three-year, entry-level deal with the club. Bouchard lacks the elite skating ability required at the position, but it's something he is working to improve. On the plus side, Bouchard owns a massive shot and possesses NHL-ready size (6-foot-2, 190 lbs) and offensive skills, racking up 87 points -- 25 goals and 62 assists -- over 67 games with OHL London last season. The 18-year-old may require some time in the minors to polish his game, but he could be a useful dynasty piece.
