24-Year-Old Right WingRW
Pittsburgh Penguins
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

The Penguins recalled Lafferty on an emergency basis from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Lafferty was demoted Monday to make him eligible for AHL playoffs, but he's expected to draw in against the Kings on Wednesday. The 24-year-old winger brings a physical element to the lineup with 91 hits over 46 games, but he's tacked on 13 points as well.
