2023 Fantasy Outlook
Newhook couldn't take a step forward in 2022-23, and he actually slipped a bit with 30 points in 82 contests with the Avalanche. Despite the plethora of injuries in Colorado, Newhook failed to secure a top-six role, averaging just 13:57 of ice time per game. A trade to Montreal represents another hit to the 22-year-old's outlook, though he may make up for the weaker supporting cast by playing a larger role with his new team. He should slot into a middle-six role with the Canadiens in 2023-24, and that should also come with power-play time. Newhook could still push for a 40-point campaign, but his fantasy value will be driven almost exclusively by his offense. He represents a risky bet on draft day, particularly in leagues that typically value all-around production in the later rounds. Read Past Outlooks

Pots goal in loss

April 7, 2024
Newhook scored a goal in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Rangers.
ANALYSIS
Newhook has been solid lately with three goals and five assists over his last eight games, though he's had three multi-point efforts in that span. The 23-year-old has centered the second line for much of the campaign when healthy, and he's now reached the 30-point mark for the third year in a row. He has 13 goals, 17 assists, 75 shots on net and a minus-14 rating over 50 appearances.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Expected to play Saturday
CMontreal Canadiens
February 9, 2024
Newhook, who has missed the last 27 games with a high-ankle sprain, is expected to return to action versus Dallas on Saturday, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Newhook suffered the injury Nov. 30 versus Florida. The former Avalanche was practicing on the first power-play unit Friday and is expected to see middle-six action. Lucas Condotta is expected to be the odd-man out against the Stars. Newhook has seven goals, six assists and 31 shots on goal in 23 appearances this season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
Newhook recently completed his first full NHL campaign. He served as a key bottom-six piece for an Avalanche team which went on to win the Stanley Cup. The 21-year-old finished the season with 13 goals and 33 points in 71 games. Newhook is almost certainly ready for a larger role, but it's difficult to see that happening this coming year considering how deep Colorado's roster is. He's a fringe pick in redraft fantasy formats, and a high-end asset in all dynasty/keeper leagues.
Newhook began last season with Boston College before deciding to leave school when the Eagles' year was complete. He began his pro journey with AHL Colorado (nine points in eight games) before seeing action in six games (three assists) with the Avalanche. Newhook is one of the very best prospects in the game today, but Colorado has the depth to bring him along slowly. He won't be forced to play a major role right away, and he'll likely begin this season centering the club's third line while seeing some second-unit power-play time. It's unlikely Newhook will provide redraft value, although he remains an elite selection in all dynasty leagues.
