Observations:

October 2017 – Oscar Fantenberg has an outstanding training camp and jumped Kevin Gravel on the depth chart, earning a spot on the Kings' roster to start the season. He will need to continue his impressive play to keep his spot, as he is waiver exempt and can be easily sent down to the minors. Jamie Barber

 

May 2017 – After collecting 23 points in 44 games with HK Sochi of the KHL this season, Oscar turned some heads with his steady, two-way game. Expect the 25 year old defenseman to battle for a bottom pair role with the Kings this season, but his fantasy value will be minimal. Fantenberg will need to adapt to the speed in North America and only posted an average of one hit and one block per game in the KHL this season. Stephen Butland

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: C-

A shutdown defender with a good first pass.
