Jay O'Brien
19-Year-Old CenterC
2018 Fantasy Outlook
As a first-round draft selection in 2009, O'Brien was expected to ascend to the NHL level years ago, but it never happened. Almost a decade later, he's proven to be a solid producer at the AHL level but unable to get the job done at the highest rank. With just eight NHL goals to his name and none of them coming in the 10 games he played last year for Ottawa, O'Brien is likely to remain in the minors for the majority of the 2018-19 campaign. Barring an unprecedented rise to the top of the prospect pecking order, O'Brien won't be fantasy relevant in the near term. Read Past Outlooks

O'Brien did not play a single shift in Team USA's 3-1 quarterfinal victory over the Czech Republic at the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship on Wednesday.
He began the tournament getting limited fourth-line minutes for the Americans and has clearly fallen out of favor with the coaching staff. O'Brien, who was playing high school prep hockey in Massachusetts a year ago, struggled with the pace of the tournament when he did get a chance to play, and he's had an underwhelming start (one goal, two points in 10 games) to his freshman campaign at Providence College. The 19th overall selection in the 2017 has a bright future, but he's a long-term project for the Flyers.
