24-Year-Old CenterC
Buffalo Sabres
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Asplund played in 28 games for the Sabres a year ago, including the club's final 21 games late in the season. He managed seven goals over that span, although they came on just 34 shots on goal, good for a 20.6 shooting percentage that will never last moving forward. A rebuilding team like Buffalo really has no reason not to give Asplund a full-time role in 2021-22, but there's no real reason to be excited about any Sabre from a fantasy perspective and Asplund is no exception.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2018
Asplund generated 19 points in 33 games with AHL Rochester and an additional one goal and two helpers in 29 appearances with the Sabres in 2019-20. The 23-year-old Swede faces an uphill battle for playing time entering 2020-21, as the Sabres have plenty of center depth following the arrival of Eric Staal. Perhaps there's room for Asplund to play on the wing, but he's unlikely to generate enough in any category to earn fantasy interest. A second-round pick from 2016, there's still a chance he can stick in a bottom-six role in the future.
Asplund begins his NHL journey after scoring 28 points in 50 games for Farjestad BK (SHL) and will likely begin the season with AHL Rochester as a 20-year-old. The Swedish center is known for his responsible two-way play and despite his young age profiles as one the team's most reliable forwards. Going forward, Asplund will be the ideal No. 3 center behind Jack Eichel and Casey Mittelstadt, but that's more than a couple years down the road. The Sabres are rather thin at center so if help is needed don't be surprised if Asplund is called up for some short-term relief.
