2019 Fantasy Outlook
Liljegren is a smooth-skating, right-shot defender with tremendous upside. Some scouts question the 20-year-old's attitude, but (AHL) Marlies' coach Sheldon Kennedy likes the growth in his game and eagerness to learn. Liljegren was passed by fellow Swede Rasmus Sandin this past season, but part of that could be attributed to lost development time due to injury. The Leafs like to slow-bake their prospects in the AHL for several seasons and Liljegren will surely benefit from an increased role with the Marlies in 2019-20. Toronto is hoping he can develop a consistent approach in the offensive zone so that he's more than just another great-skating, but interchangeable puck mover. Read Past Outlooks

First NHL point

February 15, 2020
Liljegren picked up an assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Senators.
ANALYSIS
It's his first NHL point. Liljegren was playing in his sixth game and skated 11:40. That includes 1:11 shorthanded. His ice time is increasing and the fact he's killing penalties at just 20 years of age is impressive. Liljegren was touted as an offensive defender when he was drafted, but he's showing off a responsible two-way game that actually makes his game more valuable to the Leafs. Unfortunately, that won't result in high fantasy value, at least not yet.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Liljegren's stock plummeted prior to the 2017 NHL Entry Draft due to concerns over his abilities on the defensive end of the ice, resulting in his selection 17th overall. He made the transition to the AHL last season after previously playing in Sweden and had little trouble adjusting, racking up 17 points -- one goal and 16 assists -- over 44 games while posting a plus-12 rating to suggest he's refining his two-way game. The 19-year-old blueliner will be given a look during training camp and could be a candidate to join the Maple Leafs at some point this season or next if his development continues.
