Sam Lafferty
24-Year-Old Right WingRW
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Lafferty saw action in 70 games with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton last year, notching 13 goals and 36 helpers over that span. Even if the Brown University product puts together a solid showing at training camp, the Penguins will almost certainly send him back to their minor-league affiliate in order to ensure that he gets ice time, rather than watching from the press box inside PPG Paints Arena. If he can continue to improve his game, Lafferty could carve out a role as a penalty-killing specialist with the big club in the future. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a two-year, entry-level contract with the Penguins in March of 2018.
Stays hot in blowout win
RWPittsburgh Penguins
October 13, 2019
Lafferty scored two goals on four shots and was plus-2 with a pair of blocked shots in a 7-2 victory over the Jets on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
The 24-year-old was recalled by the Penguins on Monday and went without a point in his first two NHL games. But Lafferty broke out Saturday with a goal and two assists against the Wild, then followed that up with tonight's two-goal performance. Injuries up front have opened the door for the second-year pro and he has certainly seized the opportunity so far.
