27-Year-Old Right WingRW
Toronto Maple Leafs
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Mikheyev endured a bit of a sophomore slump in 2020-21, recording just seven goals and 10 assists in 54 contests. The Russian winger was limited to third-line duties for the most part, but he's poised for a bounce-back season in a top-six role now that Zach Hyman is in Edmonton. Mikheyev should play alongside either Auston Matthews (wrist) or John Tavares (concussion), both of whom are expected to be ready to start the year. With a plum assignment in store, Mikheyev should push for 15-20 goals, 45-50 points and at least second-unit power-play duties. The 26-year-old could be a sleeper in fantasy drafts this fall -- don't get caught napping. Read Past Outlooks

Peaking at right time

Mikheyev scored a power-play goal in a 5-2 win over Boston on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Mikheyev is peaking at the right time with the playoffs looming early next week. He has four goals and six points in his last six games, and he has 21 snipes (32 points) in 53 games this season. Mikheyev is a name you need to note for 2022-23. He's a UFA this offseason that the Leafs cannot afford, and his great work this season means he will likely get a pay raise and a possible second-line role in another city.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
Soup's breakout in 2019-20 was cut short by a skate blade right before New Year's. He tallied eight goals and 15 assists in just 39 games and quickly became a fan favorite. And his game was trending up when that gruesome wrist injury happened. Mikheyev inked a two-year deal in October for under market value that will likely see him in the Leafs' top six through 2021-22. He won't get power-play time, but he'll deliver value in large, deep formats.
Mikheyev is a 6-foot-2, 190-pound winger from the KHL who was coveted by many teams this past spring. He chose the Leafs after putting up 23 goals and 22 assists in 62 regular-season games with Avengard Omsk and another 11 points (four goals, seven assists) in the playoffs. Mikheyev knows how to finish and coach Mike Babcock thinks the winger will have a big role with the Leafs. The soon-to-be 25-year-old plays a responsible two-way game, and while he doesn't bang, he protects the puck well with his size. Plus, he can kill penalties. Coming to the NHL will be an adjustment, but Mikheyev should have every opportunity to become a solid, third-line player in 2019-20.
