2018 Fantasy Outlook
Merkley could have given Dylan Strome a run for his money as AHL Tucson's regular-season point leader if not for a lower-body injury that sidelined him for the remainder of his first full professional season. A 21-year-old winger, Merkley is definitely in the running to crack the fourth line to start the 2018-19 season, as he compiled 39 points (18 goals, 21 assists) in 38 contests with Tucson. But the major concern is his injury history. A collarbone issue crept up on him in training camp to start the 2015-16 season, a torn ACL surfaced later that year, and he sustained an assortment of bumps and bruins prior to being shut down with yet another lower-body injury last March. Merkley logged 13:30 in his lone game with the Coyotes in 2018, and health permitting, he figures to receive more opportunities this coming season.
