2018 Fantasy Outlook
The shifty winger is on his third NHL team in three seasons but has the opportunity to stick around for the full schedule on a Vancouver club looking for scorers. Leipsic impressed with nine points in 14 games with the Canucks last season in a top-six role, averaging 17 minutes per game, but consistency was an issue and so was his defensive play, as evidenced by a minus-3 rating. Because Leipsic will need to pass through waivers to go to the AHL, the Canucks will give him a long look to see if he can be a permanent top-six winger. If he wins the job, he's in line for a career season, but if he can't win the job, he'll most likely stick with the team as an extra forward, which severely caps his offensive ceiling and fantasy value.

Doubtful to play again this season

Leipsic (lower body) isn't expected to play again this season, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.
ANALYSIS
Assuming that holds true, Leipsic will finish the 2018-19 season with 23 points over 62 games between the Canucks and Kings, both career-high totals. The 24-year-old winger may never be a fantasy juggernaut, but he may possess some utility in deep leagues next season.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Leipsic’s only 23 years old and just played above a point-per-game pace in the AHL, so he could make some noise if he’s able to stick with the big club in Vegas after failing to earn a call-up with the Maple Leafs last year. Climbing the depth chart should be easier given the Golden Knights’ lack of elite young forwards compared to those in Toronto, but Leipsic’s far from a proven commodity. Still, he’s worth keeping an eye on if he can crack the roster in camp.
