2021 Fantasy Outlook
Kynzhov was regularly skating in the Sharks' top four by season's end in 2020-21 alongside Erik Karlsson or Brent Burns. And while his 10 points in 56 games doesn't stand out, his muscle and sandpaper sure do. Kynzhov earned the Sharks' top rookie award last season and could be a sleeper fantasy pick in multicategory formats. He might even be good for 20 points, 80-100 blocks and 150 hits this year. It remains to be seen if he's good enough to be a permanent fixture in the Sharks' top four, but Kynzhov will get every chance to prove his mettle.
