Alexis Lafreniere
19-Year-Old Left WingLW
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Lafreniere is a cornerstone player with the rare ability to dictate play from the wing. The first overall pick in 2020 averaged more than a point-per-game in the QMJHL when he was just 16 and was named the CHL's Player of the Year in 2019-20. Lafreniere's creativity is elite and his hockey IQ is high. He sees plays develop before his opponents do, beats them one-on-one and isn't afraid to drive the net. His hands are both lightning fast and buttery soft, and he plays hard, heavy hockey. Lafreniere's game is all but guaranteed to translate well to the NHL -- scouts have compared him to David Pastrnak. He'll be a Calder nominee -- and maybe the winner -- on the coattails of a 60-point pace this year. Read Past Outlooks

Moves to Panarin's line
LWNew York Rangers
January 17, 2021
Lafreniere skated on the second line with Artemi Panarin and Ryan Strome in Saturday's 5-0 win over the Islanders. He finished with three shots and a plus-2 rating.
ANALYSIS
The rookie first overall pick played his natural left wing on the third line in the season opener, but coach David Quinn immediately shuffled the lines after the team suffered a shutout loss. Lafreniere looked much more dangerous in his second game, even though he was held off the scoresheet once again. Both Lafreniere and Panarin are in constant motion with and without the puck, so the rookie shouldn't be hampered by playing on his off wing alongside one of the league's premier left wings if this combination sticks.
