2018 Fantasy Outlook
Vilardi seemed destined to challenge for an entry-level contract after being taken 11th overall in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, but a back injury resulted in him returning to OHL Kingston when he returned to full health.The talented pivot returned to the ice with a vengeance, racking up 58 points -- 22 goals and 36 assists -- over 32 contests. The production earned him an entry-level contract this offseason and while he skipped World Juniors due to another back issue, he's expected to be ready to compete in training camp. While it's slightly concerning that back problems have surfaced multiple times, if he can put the issues behind him, Vilardi could have an outside chance at cracking the Opening Night roster. Most likely, however, he will spend most of 2018-19 in the AHL. Read Past Outlooks

Moves back to junior

Back
December 19, 2018
Vilardi (back) will head back to juniors and be ruled ineligible to return to the Kings this season, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.
ANALYSIS
The Kings worked extensively with their 2017 first-round (11th overall) draft pick to get him back into playing shape, but not enough progress has been made and GM Rob Blake said Vilardi needs additional "time to heal up." This creates a bit of a conundrum for Vilardi's fantasy owners, even in dynasty leagues. On one hand, he's considered an elite prospect who registered an eye-popping 157 points (68 goals, 89 assists) for the OHL's Windsor Spitfires and Kingston Frontenacs between 2015-18, though he'll now hog a roster spot with no tangible return at least until the 2019-20 season.
