2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 23-year-old made his NHL debut last year, playing in 18 games and scoring two goals. L'Esperance was far more productive in the AHL, where he racked up 30 goals and 45 points in 54 contests. Undrafted out of college, he has emerged as a genuine prospect, playing a physical, two-way game that marks him as a checking-line option for the Stars who can potentially make a contribution in the attacking zone as well. L'Esperance doesn't have a tremendous fantasy ceiling, but his style of play seems like a good fit for coach Jim Montgomery's system, and he could force his way into a regular shift as soon as this season.

The Stars assigned L'Espereance to AHL Texas on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
L'Espernance's demotion leaves the Stars with just 11 healthy forwards, likely signifying that one of the team's players currently out with an injury will be ready to return for Wednesday's contest versus the Blue Jackets. The most likely candidate is Corey Perry (foot), who was initially aiming to return Friday against the Penguins.
