Carl Grundstrom
21-Year-Old Left WingLW
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Acquired from the Leafs in the Jake Muzzin deal, Grundstrom has the tools to be a future fan favorite in Los Angeles and a constant thorn in the side of opposing squads. While he doesn't have a lot of size, the 21-year-old has speed, a good shot and an abrasive, physical style of play. He isn't afraid to grind it out in the corners or plow to the net looking for a rebound, or just to cause some chaos. Grundstrom made his debut last year, scoring five goals and six points in 15 games, and he'll head into 2019-20 competing for a roster spot. He'll have more fantasy value in formats that count categories like hits, and his eventual ceiling is likely that of a middle-six forward rather than top-six, but if he wants to stick in the NHL this season, his first priority will need to be improving his defensive play.

Ready for game action
LWLos Angeles Kings
September 17, 2019
Grundstrom (concussion) will play on the Kings' top line during Tuesday's preseason matchup with Arizona, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.
ANALYSIS
Grundstrom dealt with concussion-like symptoms following LA's 2018-19 season finale, but he's clearly now back to 100 percent and ready to secure a spot on the big club's Opening Night roster. The 21-year-old performed admirably after being traded to the Kings in January as part of the deal that sent Jake Muzzin to Toronto, notching five goals and six points in 15 appearances, and will likely skate in a middle-six role while seeing time on one of LA's power-play units on a nightly basis in 2019-20.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Grundstrom is a 20-year-old winger whose star is on the rise. The 2016 second-round pick delivered 17 goals (24 points) in just 35 games with Sweden's Frolunda in 2017-18. And then he made an immediate mark in the AHL playoffs with 14 points -- including eight goals -- in 20 games. Grundstrom could always snipe and he boasts NHL speed, but last season, his game away from the puck matured significantly. He become a more complete 200-foot player, both forechecking and backchecking with aggressiveness. Plus, he hits very hard. Grundstrom will vye for a spot on the Leafs' fourth line, but needs at least a full season in the AHL to grow his game. Those in deep keeper leagues should stash this future top-six goal scorer, but there's no call to action in single-year formats.
