2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Canadiens aren't sure what they have in Valiev, a hulking defenseman who came over from Toronto in the Tomas Plekanec trade. The Habs were in a position to give him ice time last season but Valiev suffered a lower-body injury that cost him more than a month of action -- he played just two games for Montreal as a result. As part of the Maple Leafs organization, Valiev was known as a defense-first player capable of moving the puck to a degree; has a tendency to stare down forwards on breakout passes. That he's a left-handed shot, a position of need for the Habs, means he'll compete for one of the final spots on the blue line. His two-way contract means the Habs would rather see him develop at AHL Laval, though he'll need to pass through waivers in order to do so. Read Past Outlooks

Called up from minors

April 17, 2019
Valiev was promoted from AHL Stockton on Wednesday as part of the Flames' Black Aces call-ups.
ANALYSIS
Valiev failed to earn a call-up during the season, instead spending the entire campaign with the Heat where he racked up four goals, 17 helpers and 51 PIM in 57 outings. The 23-year-old blueliner will be a restricted free agent this offseason and might not warrant an offer sheet from the club given how little he has been utilized in the NHL.
