2019 Fantasy Outlook
Suzuki finished off a successful 2018-19 campaign in style, racking up 16 goals and 42 points in 24 playoff games with the Guelph Storm en route to an OHL championship. The Canadiens' top prospect was named playoff MVP for his efforts. The 2017 first-round pick also enjoyed a fantastic regular season, notching 94 points in 59 games split between the Storm and Owen Sound. Suzuki will turn 20 in August, so the juniors will be in his rearview mirror in 2019-20. He's expected to take his game to AHL Laval where he and fellow prospect Ryan Poehling will anchor the Rocket's offense. He'll probably remain at center for the majority of the upcoming campaign, but may be asked to play the wing if the big club is in need of reinforcements up front. Suzuki is likely still a year away from fantasy relevancy, but he should be owned in all dynasty leagues, and will be worth a waiver claim in redraft formats as a potential spot starter if and when he's called up to the show.

Sixth in rookie scoring
CMontreal Canadiens
March 28, 2020
Suzuki has 13 goals, 28 assists and is minus-15 while averaging 15:59 of ice time per game over 71 games in 2019-20.
ANALYSIS
Suzuki, who hasn't missed a game, showed the typical signs of rookie fatigue prior to the NHL suspending the season, posting just one point over the final nine contests. He currently ranks sixth in rookie scoring. Immediately prior to the scoring drop, Suzuki won the team's player of the month award for February, when the 20-year-old forward led the Habs in power-play goals and points (two and five), tied for second in points (10), tied for third in goals (four) and shots (35), and ranked fourth in assists (six). He received ample time on the power play (2:10 per game) and is tied with Tomas Tatar on the team with 14 power-play points. Suzuki impressed head coach Claude Julien with his hockey IQ, and he'll return in a top-six role and as a member of the power-play unit in 2020-21.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Suzuki racked up an impressive 100 points in 64 outings for OHL Owen Sound last season and appeared ready to compete for a spot in the Vegas roster. Instead, the versatile forward finds himself shipped off to Montreal, where he will almost certainly have to move to wing -- something he is more than capable of -- in order to break into the lineup. Despite his upside, the youngster will likely start the year in the minors with AHL Laval, but don't be surprised to see him earn his NHL debut at some point this season.
