2019 Fantasy Outlook
Kunin enjoyed a much better pro season than his first, playing in 49 games at the top level and racking up 17 points. The 15th overall pick from 2016 has a strong all-around skill set, and his offensive ceiling is boosted by an exceptional hockey IQ that seems to consistently put him in the right place at the right time in all three zones. The St. Louis native figures to be a near lock for the Opening Night roster and will almost certainly remain with the big club for the majority of the campaign. The depth chart seems to be stacked at forward, but Kunin should push for a role on one of the top three lines. Read Past Outlooks

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Kunin's first full season as a pro didn't exactly go as the Wild had planned. The 20-year-old acquitted himself fairly well with AHL Iowa, scoring 10 goals and 19 points in 36 games, but he didn't make much of an impact with the big club before a torn ACL ended his campaign in early March. The 15th overall pick in the 2016 draft has a strong all-round skill set, and his offensive ceiling is boosted by an exceptional hockey IQ that seems to consistently put him in the right place at the right time in all three zones. Kunin's recovery has gone well and he should be 100 percent by training camp, but a return to the AHL to begin 2018-19 isn't out of the question. Once he's proven his knee is fine, however, look for him to quickly challenge for a top-nine spot.
The 15th overall pick in the 2016 draft got his profession career off to a promising start by scoring five goals with two assists in 12 games in the AHL last year after playing for the University of Wisconsin. He could be an impact player when he reaches the NHL. He'll compete for a roster spot in training camp, but most likely begins the season in the AHL again.
