2019 Fantasy Outlook
Toronto's 33-year-old GM Kyle Dubas continues to make shrewd moves. This summer, he acquired the signing rights to Kerfoot and courted puck-moving defenseman Tyson Barrie -- with Colorado agreeing to retain half of his salary -- in a blockbuster deal for Nazem Kadri, Calle Rosen and a 2020 third-round draft pick. Kerfoot has made an immediate splash in the NHL, with the third-line pivot looking to build upon the 34 goals, 51 assists and 33 power-play points that he's produced since his top-level debut to open the 2017-18 campaign. The B.C. native has moved from one offensive powerhouse to another, so it's only a matter of how quickly he can adjust to his new team and the Eastern Conference itself. Best of all, there will be no monetary distractions for Kerfoot since the ink is still drying on his four-year, $14 million deal contract with the Leafs. Read Past Outlooks

Undergoes facial surgery

November 15, 2019
Kerfoot is out indefinitely after having facial surgery Friday.
ANALYSIS
According to the team, Kerfoot sustained the injury Nov. 5 against the Kings, which means he played in four games while dealing with facial fractures. The center will almost certainly be designated for injured reserve in short order. In the meantime, Dmytro Timashov and Jason Spezza figure to compete for the open spot in the lineup.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Kerfoot weighed his options prior to the season as a valued incoming rookie free agent, ultimately signing a two-year deal with the Avalanche in August. He landed an Opening Night roster spot with the Avalanche after a strong preseason and didn't waste the opportunity. The 23-year-old pivot proceeded to rattle off 19 goals and 24 assists in his rookie season, lighting the lamp on an astounding 23.5 percent -- a league-best mark among players with 25-plus games -- of his 81 shots on goal. Considering he averaged just 13:27 of ice time as a rookie, an improvement in this department, combined with Kerfoot's presence on a young and improving power play could also bump up his counting stats in 2018-19.
