2018 Fantasy Outlook
Cirelli has been underrated everywhere he's played. Nicknamed “Captain Clutch,” the slender pivot was the surprise hero of the Oshawa Generals' Memorial Cup win in 2015. The following season, he delivered 31 points in 22 playoff games for the Erie Otters during their run to the OHL Final. Then, Cirelli stepped right into the AHL postseason in 2017, impressing Bolts brass with his poise and confidence. Last season, he entered the parent-club lineup late but never left, playing 18 regular-season games (11 points) and 17 in the postseason (five points). Cirelli is a smart grinder who surprises with his skill. He's already trending toward an elite shutdown role and reserved a third-line center spot for 2018-19. Think pre-2017 Sean Couturier. Cirelli will get some love in the Calder Trophy race, but who knows what a few years might do for his game. Read Past Outlooks

Lone assist not enough

April 17, 2019
Cirelli collected an assist in Tuesday's 7-3 series loss to the Blue Jackets.
ANALYSIS
The 21-year-old pivot marveled in his rookie campaign, as Cirelli crafted 19 goals and 39 total points to complement a plus-25 rating without missing a game in the regular season. His robust offensive total is especially impressive when you consider that he was heavily deployed on the penalty kill (2:43) and fell short of averaging 15 minutes of ice time per game. He's worth considering as a sleeper for the late rounds in fantasy drafts during the fall.
