2018 Fantasy Outlook
Part of a blockbuster deal that sent Matt Duchene to the Senators last season, Girard immediately stepped into a contributing role for the Avalanche in 2017-18. The rookie dished out 17 assists in his first NHL campaign, adding three goals of his own to finish the campaign with 20 points. His minus-8 rating suggests Girard has some work to do on the defensive end of the ice, but the 20-year-old should continue to round out the edges as he develops. He remains a key contributor on the power play, where he notched 12 of his points last season. That will likely remain central to his production in 2018-19. Read Past Outlooks

Sets up both goals in loss

February 13, 2019
Girard had assists on both of his team's goals in a 5-2 defeat against Toronto on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Those two points matched his total for all of December and January, and he's now scored four points in six February games. He might be coming out of his long hibernation and is worth monitoring because of the possibility for assists with Colorado's powerful top line.
