2018 Fantasy Outlook
Duclair spent the first half of the 2017-18 season with the Coyotes, notching nine goals and 15 points in 33 contests before being dealt to Chicago, where he added two goals and eight points in 23 appearances. The Blackhawks weren't interested in re-signing the 2013 third-round pick, so he was forced to pen a one-year, $650,000 “prove-it” deal with the Blue Jackets in July. Duclair leaves no room for optimism concerning his chances at success with his new club, so fantasy owners shouldn't have him on their radars heading into drafts this season. Read Past Outlooks

Duclair picked up two assists in Friday's 3-0 win over the Senators.
ANALYSIS
While all eyes were on Matt Duchene in his Jackets debut, it was Duclair who ended up making the biggest impact of any Columbus skater. The 23-year-old winger has only 11 goals and 19 points through 52 games on the season, but a deeper group of centers can only help Duclair find the scoresheet a little more often, even if he isn't in a top-six role.

Little broke Duclair's way in 2016-17, as the winger collected just five goals and 15 points through 58 games. His eight points (one tally) during a 16-game AHL stint weren't impressive, either. It would obviously be foolish to write off his fantasy potential entering his age-22 campaign, and it's also important to note that Duclair is no longer exempt from waivers. He should be given every opportunity to carve out a significant role with the Coyotes in training camp. Don't forget, Duclair is just a year removed from scoring 20 goals and 44 points as a 20-year-old rookie, so there's still plenty of upside.
Duclair exploded for 20 goals and 24 helpers to go along with a plus-12 rating (tops on the team) and 49 PIM in his first full NHL campaign last year, establishing himself as one of the league's most poimising young forwards. The 20-year-old didn’t take a ton of shots – 105, to be exact – but showed extreme efficiency, scoring at a 19 percent clip. Those numbers are great for a second-year winger, although they could have been even better if he saw more ice time, as he averaged only 14:23. Max Domi and Duclair have a natural ability to connect with each other, and with veteran Antoine Vermette at the helm, a repeat performance – or better – is on the horizon. He'll continue making the Rangers regret dealing him for Keith Yandle for years to come.
Before his trade to the Coyotes in March, Duclair surprisingly made the Rangers roster out of training camp and played 18 games with the big club, recording seven points. After his playing time began to wane, Duclair returned to his junior team in the QMJHL, where he was slowed by an injury for part of the season and finished with 34 points in 24 games. In between his time with the Rangers and his junior club, Duclair starred for Canada at the World Junior Championship, showing the look of a top-six forward at the NHL level. He could attain that status right out of training camp this coming season, as the Coyotes were among the worst offensive teams in the league in 2014-15 and could desperately use an infusion of scoring talent on their top two lines. If Duclair is able to claim a featured role, the 20-year-old should show off high-end offensive abilities right away, though his plus/minus rating could suffer. He could potentially skate next to WJC teamate Max Domi to form an electric duo for the Coyotes both this year and into the future.
Considered one of the crown jewels of the Rangers’ prospect stash, Duclair spent last season terrorizing the QMJHL. The 5-foot-11 forward logged 99 points (50 goals) in 59 games with the Quebec Remparts before his campaign was derailed by a concussion. In spite of the missed time, Duclair still showed real growth, burying 30 more pucks than the previous year in just four additional games. Although Rangers assistant GM Jeff Gorton has recently said that he won’t rule out the possibility of the 19-year-old making the NHL team out of camp, he still retains one season of eligibility left in juniors. While it seems like a long shot that Duclair is this year's Nathan MacKinnon, the possibility still exists there. Dynasty owners should have already pounced on this one; deep league annual re-drafters should monitor his progress in camp, because it's entirely possible he gets at least a nine-game tryout before the Rangers send him back to juniors.
Selected in the third round (80th overall) of the 2013 draft, this 17-year-old forward is said to have exceptional acceleration and ability to process a play quickly. Through 118 regular season games with the Quebec Remparts of the QMJHL, Duclair has amassed 116 points (51 goals, 55 assists), 72 penalty minutes and a plus-61 rating. The postseason doesn't seem to impact his offensive prowess either, nabbing six goals and 10 assists through 22 games for the Remparts. Though most scouts suggest he will need a lot of time to develop, the 5'11, 182-pound Duclair is certainly worthy of consideration for those in keeper leagues.
