2018 Fantasy Outlook
After never getting a real chance to show what he's capable of with Edmonton, Pitlick enjoyed his first season in the Lone Star State, posting career highs in goals, points, shots and ice time. The 26-year-old has never shown the goal-scoring potential in the NHL that he flashed in the NCAA, but he has the size, skills and hockey IQ to be a reliable bottom-six contributor now that he's gained some experience at the top level. Dallas is on the hunt for secondary scoring, but unless he really opens some eyes in training camp, Pitlick seems like a long shot to supply it. Read Past Outlooks

Not in lineup Monday
CDallas Stars
April 15, 2019
Pitlick is not in Monday's lineup for Game 3 against Nashville, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
It's unclear whether Pitlick is a healthy scratch or suffered some sort of injury. He played the final four games of the regular season after missing 30 games with an upper-body issue, so hopefully it's not related to that. Jason Spezza will replace him in Monday's lineup.

Pitlick made an impact in Edmonton last year, scoring eight goals and 11 points in 31 games before he tore his ACL. He's a depth winger with offensive potential, but the oft-injured forward has a lot to prove coming back from an ACL tear.
Pitlick has yet to make his mark in Edmonton, and after signing a one-year, two-way contract this offseason, it's almost a certain guarantee that he will split his time between the big club and AHL Bakersfield in 2015-16. Pitlick's fantasy success is contingent on him playing alongside talented linemates, but a top-six opportunity doesn't appear to be in the cards at any point this season. The Oilers may feel it is better at this point for Pitlick to play significant minutes in the AHL rather than less than 10 minutes per night in the NHL.
Pitlick made his NHL debut in 2013-14 and scored his first goal, but it was his only goal in 10 games. But the door of opportunity is open for the center to secure a full-time gig in Edmonton this season. Outside of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins' hold on the top line, every other line has an opening at center. Pitlick would need a tremedous camp to win the second-line job, but his energy would be a great fit on the third or fourth line. His fantasy value will be limited in that role, but he'll be earning an NHL contract.
Pitlick has all the tools to be a productive forward at the NHL level. He has soft hands, a plus shot, good size and sees the ice well. His first season in the AHL wasn't eye opening, but it wasn't terrible either as he had seven goals and 16 assists. He should be no worse than a third-line player when he does break into the NHL. He'll return to the AHL for 2012-13.
Pitlick is known as a pure goal scorer with great offensive potential and in his first season in the WHL, he did not disappoint with 27 goals and 62 points in 56 games. He is unlikely to begin the season with Edmonton, but will probably take the next step in his progression and play with Oklahoma City of the AHL.
Another high upside player in the Oilers system. Pitlick has been described as a pure goal scorer, but disappointed last season with only 11 goals in 38 games for the University of Minnesota. The Oilers will send him to the WHL this season to find out where his career path will lead to.
