25-Year-Old Right WingRW
Dallas Stars
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Kiviranta was the breakout star of the 2019-20 NHL playoff bubble, but he was unable to maintain that positive momentum due to the fact injuries limited him to just 26 games in 2020-21. The Finn managed six goals and 11 points over that period despite posting just one point with the man advantage. Kiviranta figures to be behind at least six or seven forwards on the Dallas depth chart, but several of those names are either aging or constantly banged up (Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn, Joe Pavelski, Alex Radulov), leaving Kiviranta's 2021-22 role in flux. Wait to see how this plays out before investing. Read Past Outlooks

Slated to suit up versus Yotes

Kiviranta (upper body) is set to rejoin the lineup against Arizona on Monday, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.
ANALYSIS
Kiviranta has yet to score a goal this season and has just 13 shots in 19 games. Unless he can start putting more pucks on net, the 25-year-old winger is unlikely to start producing with any consistency, making him a low-end fantasy target.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Kiviranta was mostly a non-factor with the big club during the 2019-20 regular season, notching just one goal in 11 appearances. He did, however, produce 12 goals and 11 assists in 48 games with AHL Texas. When given a chance, he performed far better in the playoffs, posting six points in 14 games for the eventual Western Conference champions. That said, the undrafted 24-year-old Kiviranta doesn't have a long track record as a prospect. He produced moderate scoring numbers in his native Finland, but he projects more as a hard-nosed, bottom-six winger for the 2020-21 campaign. Don't expect Kiviranta to rack up more than 20 points, although he could find some usefulness in deeper fantasy formats that count hits.
