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

Liljegren (undisclosed) joined his teammates for Monday's practice session.
ANALYSIS
While it's certainly a good sign to see Liljegren back on the ice, fantasy players shouldn't be expecting to see him skating in any games this postseason. The blueliner would likely need multiple injuries to strike in order to crack the lineup, even with the Leafs allowed to dress seven defensemen.

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.
