2019 Fantasy Outlook
Benson, a hometown kid from Edmonton, finished his first pro season with 66 points in 68 games with AHL Bakersfield and appears ready to challenge for an NHL spot in 2019-20. As the Oilers look to get younger (and cheaper), Benson could wind up taking the spot of an older, pricier veteran this upcoming season after such a stellar campaign in the minors. Expect him to try and make an impact at the team's training camp, and if he winds up playing alongside one of Edmonton's superstars -- Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl -- Benson could surprise in 2019-20.
