Bowen Byram
18-Year-Old DefensemanD
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Avalanche padded their already stacked defensive prospect pool by selecting Byram -- the best defenseman in this year's draft class -- with the fourth overall pick. The 18-year-old lit up the WHL last season, racking up 26 goals and 71 points in 67 games with the Vancouver Giants. Byram has the potential to be a bonafide No. 1 defenseman in the NHL, but Colorado's blue line is already pretty crowded, so he may head back to the WHL for another year after getting a nine-game tryout with the big club this season. Either way, Byram is a must-own player in dynasty formats, and will likely be wreaking havoc on the league alongside fellow youngster Cale Makar sooner rather than later. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
After racking up 26 goals and 45 helpers in 67 games with WHL Vancouver last season, Byram was selected with the fourth overall pick in the 2019 NHL Draft. Training camp will likely determine whether the organization will send the 18-year-old back to junior for another year or immediately add him to the NHL roster. Injuries to Ian Cole (hip) and Erik Johnson (shoulder), however, could force the Avalanche's hand.
