Andrei Kuzmenko

Andrei Kuzmenko

28-Year-Old Left WingLW
Calgary Flames
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Kuzmenko's first NHL campaign was a rousing success with a major caveat. He produced 39 goals and 35 assists, but he also shot 27.3 percent for the year, a mark that even the most elite of snipers can't sustain for long periods. He'll have every chance to replicate his success in 2023-24, but few players have redder flags for regression than the 27-year-old. The good news is that Kuzmenko's shot is still his best asset, and he has a legitimate shot at exceeding the 60-point milestone this season. Even still, fantasy managers should be cautioned against drafting him as a top-50 option. He's got virtually no physicality, so he'll have to keep his offense up to maintain his value.

Hat trick in Friday's win
LWCalgary Flames
April 12, 2024
Kuzmenko scored three goals, including two on the power play, in Friday's 6-3 win over the Ducks.
ANALYSIS
Kuzmenko put the Flames ahead 3-0 in the second period and added a couple of insurance tallies in the third after the Ducks made a comeback push. This is Kuzmenko's second career hat trick, both of which have come at Anaheim's expense. He's surged late in the season with eight goals and six helpers over his last eight contests, giving him 21 tallies, 43 points, 114 shots on net and a minus-11 rating through 69 outings overall.

February 27, 2024
Per Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan, Kuzmenko is expected to be a healthy scratch Tuesday against the Kings.

2022 Fantasy Outlook
The most highly-sought-after undrafted player in this year's cycle, Kuzmenko signed a one-year, $950K deal with Vancouver in June. He recently completed his seventh and most effective KHL season, posting 20 goals and 53 points for 45 games for SKA St. Petersburg. The scouting report on Kuzmenko is that he has great hands and is excellent on the power play, with his main drawback being a lack of breakaway speed. Expect the Canucks to give him a significant role from the start, making him an intriguing late-round fantasy pick in all formats. Kuzmenko will again be eligible for unrestricted free agency in the summer of 2023.
