2019 Fantasy Outlook
Though Heinen took a bit of step back in his second full campaign with the Bruins, en route to logging 11 goals and 34 points in 77 games last season, the 24 year-old forward is someone the team would like to keep around. Even when he's not a big producer on offense, the 2014 fourth-rounder is a responsible two-way player. At times, Heinen has displayed the skill it takes to be a top-six forward at the NHL level, but the consistency hasn't always been there. As a result, the 6-foot-1, 188-pounder seems ideally suited for third-line duties at this stage of his career. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Heinen totaled 34 points (11 goals and 23 assists) in 77 games for Boston last season and was heading towards arbitration, but he and the team were instead able to reach a new deal. The 24-year-old will look to rediscover the production from his rookie campaign in 2017-18 when he tallied 47 points.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
In first first full season with the big club, Heinen was a pleasant surprise, scoring 16 goals and 47 points in 77 regular-season games. It's suspected that the 23-year-old will be ticketed for third-line duty this coming season, but the Bruins do have an open top-six spot (previously occupied by Rick Nash) up for grabs and Heinen can make a run for the job in training camp thanks to his solid blend of skills, defensive responsibility and hockey IQ.
Heinen didn't record a point in eight games with the big club this past season, but the 22-year-old finished the AHL’s regular-season slate with 14 goals and 44 points in 64 games -- and then took things to another level during the Calder Cup playoffs, scoring nine goals and 18 points in 17 contests. With his strong postseason run in mind, it’s not hard to imagine the University of Denver product making a run at an NHL roster spot to open the 2017-18 season, although a likely bottom-six role will limit his fantasy value even if he does break camp with the big club.
With the void created by the free agent departure of Loui Eriksson, Heinen and Frank Vatrano are younger in-house candidates to make runs at key roles up front with the Bruins this season. The 21-year-old Heinen is coming off a campaign in which he scored 20 goals and 48 points as a sophomore for the University of Denver, en route to helping his team earn a slot in the NCAA Frozen Four. While he remains a speculative play in fantasy, Heinen -- who is listed at 6-foot-1, 185 pounds -- has the sort of skill set and hockey IQ that could transfer well to the pro game.
