April 26, 2022
Kuraly will be sidelined for the final three games of the year due to a foot injury, the club announced Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Kuraly put together a career year in his first season with the Jackets as he set new personal bests in goals (14) and points (30). The center's production is all that more impressive considering it came almost exclusively at even strength after Kuraly managed just one power-play point. Without Kuraly in the lineup, Cole Sillinger figures to step into the second-line center role.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2017
Kuraly was a mainstay in the Bruins' bottom six last season, posting 23 points and 145 hits while averaging 13:17 of ice time in 69 contests. He's maintained that rate of production pretty consistently over the past three campaigns, so although he's a solid real-life forward for Boston, there's no reason give him a second look in fantasy circles.
Kuraly is coming off a 2018-19 campaign in which he notched eight goals and 21 points in 71 games, en route to recording a plus-6 rating. Those aren't eye-popping numbers, but the 26-year-old does bring a good mix of size (6-foot-2, 213 pounds) and energy to the table. Additionally, Kuraly is a swift skater, who can effectively lug the puck up the ice as well as cycle the puck down low. If he can improve his finishing ability, there's some untapped fantasy potential here, but as things stand, Kuraly does a great job for the team in his role as a versatile and hard-charging bottom-six forward.
Kuraly logged six goals and 14 points in 75 games this past season while working mostly on the Bruins' fourth line. The 25-year-old brings a good mix of size (6-foot-2, 213 pounds) and energy to the table and does have some untapped offensive potential, thanks to his solid skating and ability to cycle to the puck down low. Kuraly's fantasy ceiling is modest as long as he remains in a bottom-six role, but if he sees third-line work this season, which is possible, he could potentially double his offensive production.
Kuraly came over to the Bruins with little fanfare along with a first-round pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft in exchange for goalie Martin Jones back in June of 2015. Since then, the 6-foot-2, 205-pounder has seen action in eight regular-season contests with the big club, recording one assist in the process. Kuraly’s two-goal effort in Game 5 of the Bruins’ 2016-17 playoff series against Ottawa offers hope that the 24-year-old can push for a bottom-six role with the team this season, but the more likely outcome is that he'll bounce between the NHL and AHL as needed.
