2018 Fantasy Outlook
Erne is a prototypical power forward with third-line upside. He can use his body to protect the puck and create space. However, he has been passed by a number of other young players in a poor Tampa feeder system. At 23 years old, Erne has played in parts of the last two NHL seasons. While he's excellent defensively, there are plenty of guys who can play good defense and deliver more than six goals and an assist in 49 games. Erne will vie for a fourth-line gig with Tampa in 2018-19. But even if he makes the team, he won't have any fantasy value. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a one-year, $800,000 contract with the Lightning in July of 2018.
Sits out Game 4
LWTampa Bay Lightning
April 17, 2019
Erne was scratched for Game 4 on Tuesday night.
ANALYSIS
His ice time had ranged from 8:22 to 9:25 in the previous three games and he'd managed four shots and one minor penalty. In other words, Erne didn't make a dent. He's always had potential, but Erne hasn't been able to cement a full-time role yet.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2014
2013
Erne is ready for primetime, but Chris Kunitz's arrival might mean the prototypical power forward spends another year in the AHL. He skates well and is hard to handle in front of the net. Erne scored three goals in 26 games with the Bolts in 2016-17, but don't let those numbers fool you, as he didn't look out of place. He's in tough to break camp with the team, but could be an in-season call up who'll skate in the bottom six. Don't bet a keeper leaguer spot on him yet, though -- Erne's upside is on a checking line and there are plenty of those guys to go around.
Erne is lightning fast and tough, but he's best known for pile-driving fellow Bolts' prospect Jonathan Drouin head-first into the boards in a QMJHL game last December. Some scouts have come to question his decision-making skills, and there are whispers of the word "dirty" when Erne's name comes up. He probably tops out as a top-nine skater who will play close to the edge and be loved by his teammates and fans. There's fantasy value in being an elite super-pest -- just ask Dallas' Antoine Roussel. We think he's a "show me" guy -- don't draft him until he shows you what he can do.
Erne was once considered a potential top-10 pick for the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, perhaps based on his skating alone. The guy is fast with great edge work and is strong like a bull. His 2012-13 season wasn’t as great as some would have liked, but he put in an impressive showing at the NHL Scouting Combine, opening a few eyes along the way. He doesn’t have the high-end offensive skill of some of the earlier picks, but he has good net drive and a solid defensive awareness. He’s probably the ideal third-line physical forward who’ll inevitably see time on the second line because of his doggedness. Watch for him in Tampa Bay in three years.
