SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE
Nathan MacKinnon left last night’s game early with a lower body injury and did not return. The extent of the injury is not known, but they should give an update before the next game. He is the fourth best fantasy center this season and one of the best players in the NHL, so this is obviously a huge loss for the Aves. Keep an eye on their next game, because if he is unable to play the line will shift significantly.
REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK
Based on average projected fantasy points, Nathan MacKinnon is the #4 fantasy center with an average of 3.55 fantasy points per game. But with him projected to play just 2 games in you will need to wait on him to deliver value. In 69 games this season he has averaged 3.61 which ranks him as the #6 center based on average.
