2018 Fantasy Outlook
After splitting time between the Oilers, Predators and Blues, Hunt was selected by Vegas in the expansion draft. The 29-year-old managed 18 points in 45 regular-season games but was scratched during the team's lengthy playoff run. With only 78 career NHL games under his belt and the fact he's approaching his age-30 season, Hunt doesn't offer much fantasy value in the majority of settings. However, he has a decent shot and racked up 12 power-play points in 2017-18, so if he does get into the lineup, Hunt could be worth scooping up in some deeper leagues. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a two-year, $1.3 million contract with the Golden Knights in July of 2017. Traded to the Wild in January of 2019.
Productive out of position
DMinnesota Wild
February 16, 2019
Hunt scored a power-play goal and added an even-strength assist in Friday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Devils.
ANALYSIS
Pressed into service as a forward after spending the last four games in the press box, Hunt not only didn't look out of place, he showed some offensive skill in his limited opportunities -- he played only 6:36 on the night, although nearly two minutes of that came with the man advantage. The 30-year-old defenseman will likely lose his spot again once Victor Rask (lower body) or Matt Hendricks (upper body) gets healthy, but Hunt's showing in this one might encourage head coach Bruce Boudreau to give him a longer look.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2014
Hunt managed a surprising six points in 12 games between the Predators and Blues last year, but his three points in 21 previous NHL appearances suggest he has almost no chance of matching that pace over an extended period. Vegas is deep enough on the blue line that Hunt will probably spend most of his time in either the AHL or the press box, so there’s little reason to expect the undersized 28-year-old to contribute much.
Hunt's size (5-9, 188 lbs) may never allow him to be a full-time blue liner, but rather a depth defenseman who can answer the call when needed for a few games here and there. The Oilers are certainly weak on defense, so he could get another cup of coffee with the team this season. But he'll need to prove he's more than a pint-sized, power-play quarterback from the AHL.
