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

Still not taking contact

April 19, 2019
Girard (upper body) remained in a non-contact sweater ahead of Friday's Game 5 playoff contest against the Flames, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
ANALYSIS
This effectively rules out Girard for a road contest that could see the Avalanche skate off with a series win. Newly minted Hobey Baker Award winner Cale Maker -- who found twine in his NHL debut for Game 2 -- will continue to be relied upon as a direct replacement for the injured Girard.
