2019 Fantasy Outlook
After putting up just 18 points in 46 games with the Panthers, McCann was traded to Pittsburgh as part of a package deal in February. The change of scenery seemed to invigorate the left-handed forward, as he went onto tally 17 points in 32 games with the Penguins. The 23-year-old set career highs in goals (19) and points (35) in 2018-19, and could be in a position to improve on those numbers in 2019-20. While he was initially brought in to be a third-line center, McCann paired well with Sidney Crosby and Jake Guentzel on Pittsburgh's top line, and may find himself playing there again this year, though given his skills as a two-way forward, he could also lineup with Evengi Malkin. Either way, coach Mike Sullivan will be hard pressed to keep the smooth-skating McCann out of a top-six role this season. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
McCann played just 29 games at the NHL level during the 2016-17 season, splitting time between the big club and AHL Springfield. However, the 2014 first-round (24th overall) pick was able to earn an everyday role with the Panthers last season, scoring nine goals and 28 points across 68 appearances. He then signed a two-year deal to stay with Florida during the 2018 offseason, so the team is clearly confident in his ability to be a full-time NHL forward. After averaging 13:15 of ice time per game last year, that number should increase slightly, setting up McCann to clear 25 points once again in 2018-19.
Acquired in an offseason trade from the Canucks prior to last season, McCann managed just one goal and seven points in 29 games with the Panthers; he spent most of the campaign in the AHL, where he scored 25 points in 42 games. Florida’s pretty deep down the middle, which means that if McCann sticks with the big club, it'll likely be as a winger. The 2014 first-round pick has lots of talent and is known for his speed and shooting ability, but he currently lacks the strength and experience to be a reliable offensive weapon in the NHL. McCann may split the season between the NHL and AHL as he continues to develop.
Vancouver’s 2014 first-rounder (24th overall), McCann totaled nine goals and nine assists in 69 games as a rookie last season, but was dealt to the Panthers in the offseason along with a couple picks for blueliner Erik Gudbranson. While the 20-year-old is a natural centerman, he’ll likely shift over to the wing – likely in a third-line role – due to Florida’s collection of young talent down the middle. Despite his pedigree, McCann doesn’t have game-breaking talent, but he’ll likely exceed last season’s production with a year of NHL experience under his belt.
