Ryan Donato
23-Year-Old CenterC
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Donato, who turned in a stellar performance for Team USA at the 2018 Winter Olympics, also saw his efforts at Harvard last season recognized when he was named a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award, presented annually to the NCAA's best college hockey player. On top of that, Donato got his first taste of NHL action, logging five goals and nine points in 12 games down the regular-season stretch. In the process, Donato showed plenty of upside on offense, while displaying energy, solid wheels and a dangerous shot that he's not afraid to let go. While nothing will be handed to him this season, it's not hard to imagine the 22-year-old securing top-six work up front in his first full campaign as a pro. Read Past Outlooks

April 9, 2019
Donato was sent down to AHL Iowa on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Iowa has three regular-season contest remaining as it tries to secure a spot in the Calder Cup Playoffs and the addition of Donato should bolster the club's chances. The center logged 22 games with Minnesota this season after being acquired via trade from Boston, in which he registered four goals, 12 helpers and 64 shots. The center saw his ice time jump by over three minute per game with his new club and should benefit from an increased role next season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2015
2014
The 2014 second-round pick, who showed well at the Bruins' development camp this summer, will now look to establish himself at the NCAA level after a 2014-15 season in which he played for several teams, including the Omaha Lancers of the USHL. While the 19-year-old Donato is no immediate threat to crack the Bruins lineup, down the road he projects as a solid two-way player at the pro level, given his scoring instincts and hockey IQ.
Donato - the son of former Bruin Ted Donato - was selected by Boston with the 56th-overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. He’s a few years away from a shot with the big club though, with another season of high school hockey (at Dexter School in Brookline, Mass) or a stint with the Omaha Lancers of the United States Hockey League on tap for him in 2014-15.
