2020 Fantasy Outlook
Zboril spent all of 2019-20 with AHL Providence, where he amassed 19 points in 58 games. It was the third year in a row he finished just shy of 20 points in the minors. With the departures of Zdeno Chara and Torey Krug in the offseason, Zboril will get his shot for a full-time NHL job in 2020-21. He'll likely start the year on the third pairing, which makes it unlikely to see much more than 10 points out of the first-round pick from 2015, which will keep him off the radar in most single-year formats.

Returning to action
DBoston Bruins
April 20, 2021
Zboril (illness) will return to action Tuesday night against the Sabres, Joe Haggerty of BostonHockeyNow.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Following a one-game absence, Zboril is slated to work on the Bruins' third defensive pairing along with Jeremy Lauzon. With newcomer Mike Reilly now in the mix and Matt Grzelcyk back in action, it doesn't seem likely that Zboril, who has notched eight assists in 39 games to date, will see much power-play time in the immediate future.

2015
Overall, the 2015 first-rounder recorded four goals and 19 points to go along with a plus-12 rating in 68 games for AHL Providence in his first season as a pro. A strong finish to his campaign signaled that the 21-year-old's game is starting to round out and he could make a run at an NHL job as soon as next season. With blue-line prospects Rob O'Gara and Ryan Lindgren previously having been dealt by the Bruins, Zboril -- who is 6-foot-2, 190 pounds -- and Providence teammate Jeremy Lauzon profile as the organization's next wave of young talent on the back line.
Now set to begin his pro career, the No. 13 overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft could potentially push for a spot with the big club to start the 2017-18 campaign, but it would probably take a slew of injuries for the 20-year-old to land a roster spot. An offensive-minded defenseman with a bit of a mean streak, Zboril is coming off a 2016-17 season that saw him record nine goals and 41 points in 50 games for QMJHL Saint John. While fellow youngsters Charlie McAvoy and Brandon Carlo have already graduated to the NHL, Zboril heads Boston's next wave of blue line prospects, a group that also includes Jeremy Lauzon, Matt Grzelcyk, Rob O'Gara and Ryan Lindgren.
Zboril, who was drafted 13th overall by the Bruins in the 2015 draft, saw his prospect stock take a temporary dip last season, after his production with the Saint John Sea Dogs dropped to six goals and 20 points (down from a 13/20/33 line in 44 games in 2014-15) in 50 QMJHL game. While he still needs to quiet those who have expressed concerns regarding his work ethic, Zboril still profiles as an offensive-minded defenseman with a bit of a mean streak -- something that would no doubt be welcomed by the B's faithful in Beantown. With the Bruins hungry for immediate blue line help, Zboril -- along with the likes of fellow youngsters Brandon Carlo and Jeremy Lauzon -- could make a run at a roster spot with the big club as soon as this season.
Selected 13th overall in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, Zboril is slated to return to Saint John for another season in the QMJHL. The 18-year-old native of the Czech Republic is coming off a 2014-15 campaign in which he notched 13 goals and 20 assists in 44 contests. While it will take some time before Zboril makes a legitimate push for an NHL roster spot, when he does, he could attain fantasy relevance down the road, given that he is considered an offensive defenseman with a bit of a mean streak.
