Frank Vatrano could be a nice very late round pick this season in fantasy pools.
Vatrano had 16 goals and 34 points last season which is run-of-the-mill, but he chipped in elsewhere with a couple of power play goals, 102 hits and 43 blocked shots. Coach Joel Quenneville loves his play and is using him on the third line with Owen Tippett and Eetu Luostarinen. "I like his pace," Quenneville said. "I think he did a good job in the offseason there, did some skill work. I think he's always had quickness. He has some tenacity to his game. He's got a terrific shot. He's a competitive guy. You can use him in multiple situations. I think last year he had some real good stretches. When he's committed to every single shift, you notice him. That's not an easy thing to do, but he has that ability and that hungriness that he can provide his linemates. It's something that we look forward to having more of that in our lineup. I think he's one of the guys we expect to count on in that department." Look for Vatrano to get 13-15 goals and 25 points this season in Florida. Jan 12 6:20 am (EST)
