Vitali Kravtsov
19-Year-Old Right WingRW
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Rangers' selection of Kravtsov with the ninth overall pick in the 2018 NHL Draft raised some eyebrows at the time, but it now looks like a steal if anything after the 19-year-old Russian put up 21 points in 50 games for Traktor Chelyabinsk of the KHL in 2018-19. That production is reminiscent of some recent success stories such as Evgeny Kuznetsov, but it's best to pump the brakes on immediate expectations for Kravtsov considering he will likely need some time to adjust to the North American game. Still, there's a good chance Kravtsov will be able to hold down a middle-six role on Broadway from the get-go, and keeper league owners shouldn't hesitate to act if the winger makes the roster out of camp.

Surprise scratch Sunday
RWNew York Rangers  Minors
October 7, 2019
Kravtsov was a healthy scratch for AHL Hartford in their 4-3 overtime victory over Bridgeport on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Kravtsov made it through Saturday's season opening win over Charlotte without issue, but the team elected to have him spend Sunday's contest in the press box. This doesn't appear to be a major issue at the moment as Kravtsov is apparently healthy, but the decision to have a 19-year-old top prospect sit out his club's second game of the season is a bit baffling.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Kravtsov has committed to playing a third season season in the KHL after breaking out during the playoffs last season with 11 points in 16 games. While that rules him out for the vast majority of the NHL campaign, he didn't dismiss potentially joining the Rangers late in the season. While the vast majority of his value lies in the dynasty format, the 6-foot-3 winger could also have a late-season impact in deep fantasy leagues.
