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. Read Past Outlooks
Plays through torn triceps at WJC

Triceps
January 6, 2019
Kravtsov suffered a torn triceps while playing for Team Russia in the 2019 IIHF World Junior Champship, Igor Eronko of Sport-Express reports.
ANALYSIS
Russian coach Valeria Bragin said Kravtsov was "fine" but that was clearly downplaying the injury. Kravtsov was able to play through the injury and lead Russia to a bronze medal while working as the team's first-line center. He finished the tournament with two goals and four helpers in seven games. Surgery could be scheduled for the 19-year-old, and that would likely end his KHL season and make it unlikely that Kravtsov joins the Rangers, who picked him ninth overall in the 2018 NHL Draft this year.
