2018 Fantasy Outlook
Part of a blockbuster deal that sent Matt Duchene to the Senators last season, Girard immediately stepped into a contributing role for the Avalanche in 2017-18. The rookie dished out 17 assists in his first NHL campaign, adding three goals of his own to finish the campaign with 20 points. His minus-8 rating suggests Girard has some work to do on the defensive end of the ice, but the 20-year-old should continue to round out the edges as he develops. He remains a key contributor on the power play, where he notched 12 of his points last season. That will likely remain central to his production in 2018-19. Read Past Outlooks

Girard had an assist, two hits, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks in Game 7.
ANALYSIS
Girard posted two helpers and 11 blocked shots over nine postseason appearances. The soon-to-be 21-year-old blueliner will be looking to build on the 27 points he posted across 82 regular-season contests as he enters his third NHL season in 2019-20.
