2019 Fantasy Outlook
When healthy, as he was during the Bruins' lengthy 2018-19 playoff run, McAvoy is a minute-gobbling two-way force on the Boston back line. The 2016 first-rounder has, however, dealt with some injury/health woes during his two full seasons with the organization. Last year, he suited up for 54 regular-season contests, en route to notching seven goals and 28 points. At just 21 years of age, McAvoy has plenty of untapped potential, and if he reaches his ceiling, he's a player the Bruins can build their blue line around. There's plenty of value in that, a reality that has led to a contract impasse between the team and the current restricted free agent. On the plus side, McAvoy has stated his desire to remain a Bruin for the long haul, and that's something the team would love to make a reality. Read Past Outlooks

McAvoy scored a goal on four shots to go along with two PIM, two hits and one block in Wednesday's 3-2 round-robin loss to Tampa Bay.
ANALYSIS
McAvoy, who led Boston defensemen in shots in this one, beat Andrei Vasilevskiy with a one-timer off a faceoff late in the second period to get the Bruins on the board. The 22-year-old first-rounder collected five goals and 32 points with a career-best plus-24 rating in 67 regular-season games in 2019-20.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
In his first full NHL season, McAvoy recorded seven goals and 32 points in 63 games to go along with a plus-20 rating. Missed time due to a knee injury kept McAvoy out of the final Calder Trophy running, but he profiles as the next in a long line of outstanding Boston blueliners. The 20-year-old already displays rare poise for his age and it's not hard to imagine McAvoy enjoying an increased level of production in 2018-19 given his strong skating ability and puck skills. Moreover, the 2016 first-rounder sees a share of power-play ice time, which helps his fantasy cause. McAvoy's defensive game has room for growth, but the tireless youngster figures to get better in that department as he gains further experience handling big-bodied opponents at the pro level.
Although the 14th pick in the 2016 NHL Draft just turned 19 this past December, McAvoy is already penciled in for a key role on the Boston blue line this coming season. After signing his entry-level deal with the Bruins last April, McAvoy saw his first taste of NHL action, logging three helpers in six playoff games. In doing so, he displayed tremendous poise -- moving the puck crisply, demonstrating tape-to-tape passing ability, and most importantly, holding his own defensively. It would thus be a major surprise if the Boston University product doesn't begin the 2017-18 season working in a top-four role for the big club. With power-play duty likely on tap in that scenario, McAvoy already merits fantasy attention at this early stage of his NHL journey.
McAvoy, who the Bruins took 14th overall in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, says that he models his game after Drew Doughty of the Kings. With the B's having bid adieu to Johnny Boychuk and Dougie Hamilton over the past couple of years and blueline pillar Zdeno Chara 39 years old, McAvoy -- who turns 19 in December -- represents a key piece of the future on the B's back line. Though the team has some immediate needs on that front, McAvoy won't be rushed, though local Bruins fans will have an opportunity to do some advance scouting of the Long Beach, N.Y. native, given that he'll skate for Boston University this coming season. The 6-foot-1, 200 pounder is a good skater, with strong puck skills, traits that should lead to him assuming a top-four D-man role for the Bruins in time. In fact, he's already the team's top blue line prospect, given that 2015 first-rounder Jakub Zboril took a modest step back last season.
