2019 Fantasy Outlook
Bouchard finished the 2018-19 season with AHL Bakersfield, collecting eight points in eight postseason contests. Prior to making his professional debut, Bouchard, 19, found the scoresheet 53 times in 45 games with the London Knights (OHL). The young blueliner should be ready to make the jump to the NHL in 2019-20 and will likely assume a top-4 role with an Oilers team desperately in need of offensive defensemen. Bouchard's fantasy value will be even more pronounced in dynasty formats considering his age and ceiling. If you're desperate, feel free to use a late draft pick on the youngster, but Bouchard will likely be available after most drafts, so keep that in mind when plotting out your 2019-20 strategy.

The Oilers reassigned Bouchard to AHL Bakersfield on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Bouchard has been a healthy scratch in two straight games, so he'll head to Bakersfield and should play in Saturday's AHL game. However, it's likely he's recalled to serve as the seventh defenseman for Sunday's matchup versus the Kings.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Less than a month after being selected 10th overall by the Oilers in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, Bouchard signed a three-year, entry-level deal with the club. Bouchard lacks the elite skating ability required at the position, but it's something he is working to improve. On the plus side, Bouchard owns a massive shot and possesses NHL-ready size (6-foot-2, 190 lbs) and offensive skills, racking up 87 points -- 25 goals and 62 assists -- over 67 games with OHL London last season. The 18-year-old may require some time in the minors to polish his game, but he could be a useful dynasty piece.
