24-Year-Old Left WingLW
Pittsburgh Penguins
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Guentzel set career highs in goals (22), assists (26) and shots on goal (171) in 2017-18 -- his second year but first full campaign. While he's only 5-foot-11 and 167 pounds, the speedy winger is not afraid to throw his body around, as he dished out 142 hits last year. After trying out many different combinations, Pittsburgh may have finally found a long-term winger for Sidney Crosby in “Jake N Bake,” who provides a solid scoring touch, high-end skating ability and a strong hockey IQ. If he remains locked in on the top line, there is little doubt the 22-year-old will set another round of career bests this upcoming season. Read Past Outlooks

Creeping closer to 40 goals
LWPittsburgh Penguins
March 20, 2019
Guentzel scored a goal and tallied an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Hurricanes.
ANALYSIS
Guentzel is up to 37 goals on the year, just three shy of 40, but with eight games remaining the Pens' forward should wind up achieving the mark, which would be his first time doing so. In addition to his goal, Guentzel drew a secondary assist on Kris Letang's go-ahead goal late in the third period and now has 70 points in 2018-19.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2013
After tallying 33 points in 40 regular-season games and following that up with a rookie-record 21 in 25 playoff contests, Guentzel is a near lock to join the ever-prolific Sidney Crosby on the Penguins’ top line to start the 2017-18 campaign. A natural center, the 22-year-old’s meteoric ascension could cause many a fantasy owner to overreach, but the savvier types know that he’s facing a limited role on the man advantage and his 19.8 shooting percentage from last year is not sustainable. While the speedy pivot starred in the AHL and doesn't seem like a candidate for a sophomore slump, breaking the bank on a player with less than a full season’s worth of NHL experience might not be the best course of action -- even with Crosby at his side.
The Penguins snagged Guentzel in the third-round pick of the 2013 draft. At 5-foot-9, 153 pounds, the smallish centerman will need to prove himself every step of the way. The 19-year-old scored 29 goals and 73 points in 60 games for Sioux City of the USHL last year. Guentzel is likely several seasons away from fighting for a roster spot.
