2020 Fantasy Outlook
Dach held his own as an 18-year-old rookie last season, notching eight goals, 15 helpers, 101 shots on net and three power-play points while primarily skating in a bottom-six role. The third overall pick from the 2019 draft was poised to enter the 2020-21 campaign as a bigger, stronger and more confident version of himself, but he suffered a broken wrist that required surgery while playing an exhibition game with Team Canada at the World Junior Championship tournament, and is now expected to be sidelined for most if not all of the upcoming shortened season. He'll make for an intriguing free-agent add if he's able to return for the Blackhawks' last handful of games, but he should be left on the board on draft day. Read Past Outlooks

May 6, 2021
Dach (wrist) won't play in the Blackhawks' final three games of the season.
ANALYSIS
Dach aggravated his surgically-repaired wrist during Monday's loss to the Hurricanes, and the Blackhawks have already been eliminated from playoff contention, so they're not going to take any chances with their No. 1 center of the future. The third overall pick from the 2019 NHL Entry Draft will finish the campaign having picked up 10 points and 26 shots on goal in 18 games.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
When the Blackhawks selected Dach with the third overall pick in this year's draft, it was a bit of a surprise, as many pundits had Chicago taking defenseman Bowen Byram, who ultimately went to the Avalanche fourth overall. However, the Blackhawks' will remain in win-now mode as long as Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews are still in their primes, and Dach appears to be the more NHL-ready player out of the two. General manager Stan Bowman has already publicly stated that Dach will get every opportunity to make the big club's roster out of training camp, and it appears as though he'll have a great chance to do so, and could step into a third-line role immediately in 2019-20. The 18-year-old pivot has great size at 6-foot-4 and 198 pounds, which should allow him to adjust to the physical nature of the NHL far faster than most prospects his age. Dach is a must-own player in dynasty settings, but if he's able to secure a spot on the Blackhawks' roster this season, he'll be worth a late-round draft pick in yearly leagues, as well.
