Chicago Blackhawks
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Dach's season was derailed by a fractured wrist suffered in a World Junior exhibition game right before Christmas. The injury required surgery and Dach ended up missing almost exactly three months as a result. Dach played well upon his return, posting 10 points in 18 games, but it was his power-play usage that really stood out. Dach saw 3:20 worth of ice time per game with the man advantage, a massive number that almost certainly would have led to a boatload of fantasy production from the No. 3 overall pick in 2019. However, keep in mind the Blackhawks are getting Jonathan Toews back and have traded for Tyler Johnson, so the roles of certain players might change. Regardless, Dach is worthy of a late-round selection in all formats. Read Past Outlooks

2020
2019
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.
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.
