2023 Fantasy Outlook
After scoring 33 goals and 85 points in 82 contests with Minnesota in 2021-22, Fiala was dealt to Los Angeles and wasted no time making an impact with his new squad, contributing 23 goals and 72 points in 69 outings last season. Fiala lacked regular linemates in 5v5 play, but he was consistently part of the Kings' top power-play unit alongside Anze Kopitar, and the 27-year-old winger shined in that role, recording a career-high 24 power-play points. The only real blemish on Fiala's first season with the Kings was the time he missed due to injury, but he's been durable during his career overall, so it's not unreasonable to hope for him to have better health this season. Provided he stays healthy, he should finish with 25-30 goals and 70-80 points. Read Past Outlooks

Finds twine in Game 2 win
LWLos Angeles Kings
April 24, 2024
Fiala scored a goal on four shots in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Oilers in Game 2.
ANALYSIS
Fiala's third-period marker briefly gave the Kings a 4-3 lead. It was his first point to go with seven shots on net and five hits over two playoff contests. Fiala had 29 goals, 44 assists, 225 shots on net, 67 hits and 62 PIM over 82 regular-season outings. While he's been on the third line in the postseason, the Kings' offense is deep enough to give him plenty of good opportunities.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Joining Switzerland at Worlds
LWLos Angeles Kings
May 13, 2024
Fiala will participate in the 2024 IIHF World Championship with Switzerland, Russell Morgan of Hockey Royalty reports Monday.
ANALYSIS
Fiala was underwhelming in the postseason with just two points in five games against the Oilers. This comes after the 27-year-old winger reached the 70-point threshold for the third straight year during the regular season. Fiala set new personal bests with 11 power-play goals and 30 power-play points, bolstered by a career-high 3:09 of ice time per game with the man advantage.

In what ended up being his final season in Minnesota, Fiala played in all 82 games for the Wild, finishing with career-best marks in goals (33), assists (52), points (85), plus/minus (plus-23), shots on goal (262) and average time on ice (17:39). The Wild passed on offering Fiala a massive raise in restricted free agency, instead shipping the 26-year-old to Kings, who gave him a new seven-year, $55.125 million contract. Fiala is one of the streakiest players in the league. He had a ten-game stretch in mid-April a season ago in which he posted ten goals and 23 points. Los Angeles is clearly confident they have acquired a clear-cut top-six forward just entering the prime of his career, and they may very well have, but Fiala would appear to carry more risk than most other early-round fantasy picks this coming season.
Fiala got a new lease on life following a February 2019 trade to Minnesota and has since responded with back-to-back solid seasons for the Wild. He finished the 2020-21 campaign with 20 goals and 40 points in 50 games, while chipping in 162 shots and 14 power-play points, as well. Fiala turned just 25 years of age this past July, so there could be a bit more meat on the bone here. Fiala has developed into a solid mid-round, offensive fantasy option. Draft him as such in your pools this coming fall.
Fiala is perhaps the most exciting member of the Wild's offense after scoring 23 goals and 31 assists in 64 games last year. That career-best production was propped up by a 13.1 shooting percentage and ample power-play time. Still, the Swiss winger showed a lot of chemistry with Eric Staal, who perhaps to his detriment, was traded to the Sabres in the offseason. Fiala will need to show he's not just a one-trick pony in 2020-21 -- his ability to mesh with new linemates will go far in determining his success. Nonetheless, he'll have the support of new head coach Dean Evason, which will make Fiala a solid middle-round option in standard fantasy formats, especially given his scoring success over the last three years.
New general manager Paul Fenton shook up his roster quite a bit in his first season at the helm, most notably shipping Mikael Granlund to Nashville in exchange for Fiala. After all, Fenton was the one that drafted the 22-year-old in 2014 during his time with the Predators and seems to be enamored with the winger. Fiala played 83 games between Nashville and Minnesota, racking up 13 goals and 39 points in the process last season. Considering the confidence the team has in him, Fiala should be given every opportunity to see premium ice time in the top six and on the power play during the 2019-20 campaign. Most known for his speed, Fiala could be a trendy breakout candidate for next season in an advantageous environment.
With 48 points (23 goals, 25 assists) and a shiny plus-20 rating, Fiala truly broke out last season, and it marked a huge step forward from his 16-point rookie season the year before. A key factor behind Fiala's growth was the arrival of Kyle Turris via trade from the Senators, as Fiala and Turris teamed with Craig Smith to form a very formidable second line. How big a part did Turris play in Fiala's banner season? Consider this: Fiala had just seven points in 14 games prior to Turris' arrival in November. With Turris? 41 points in 66 games, including 23 goals and nine points on the power play. At just 22 years old, Fiala's development is still on the upswing, so there's plenty of room for additional growth on his part. Don't be surprised if the Swiss national takes a run at 60 points in the upcoming season – it's well within his reach.
Expectations were high for Fiala last season after he made the Opening Night roster. After all, the 19-year-old had put up 50 points in 66 games the previous season at AHL Milwaukee, and the Preds were looking for someone who could complement Ryan Johansen and Filip Forsberg on their first line. However, Fiala suffered the usual first-year rookie jitters and wound up getting shuttled back and forth between Nashville and Milwaukee on more than one occasion, finishing the regular season with just 16 points in 57 games. In the playoffs, Fiala’s season came to an abrupt end in Round 2 after he suffered a broken leg in Game 1 against St. Louis. However, as a 21-year-old with notable draft pedigree and offensive upside, Fiala should take on an expanded role (potentially on the second line) in 2017-18, which will likely result in an uptick in fantasy relevance. He makes for an intriguing speculative pick late in drafts.
Fiala was the leading scorer at AHL Milwaukee last season with 50 points in 66 games, and is expected to get a long look at the Preds' training camp this fall. Whether he cracks the roster this season or next, it's just a matter of time before he becomes a full-time player in the NHL. Offensively, Fiala is the total package. He can play both the playmaker role as well as score goals. He has great hockey sense, sees the ice well, has a quick release, soft hands and exceptional speed. Don't be surprised if he lands a roster spot right out of training camp this year.
Fiala made his professional debut in 2014-15, skating in one NHL game and notching 11 goals and 20 points in 33 contests with AHL Milwaukee. The 19-year-old is a flashy skater who has crafty hands and excellent puck control, making him a promising offensive winger. He could make the Preds’ roster out of training camp, but with the top-six ranks seemingly chock full, it might be better for Fiala to open the season with Milwaukee, where he'll get top-line minutes and power-play time. That should leave him well prepared to assume a meaningful role with the Predators when an injury might necessitate his promotion to the big club. He makes for a top-notch dynasty league stash.
Fiala, the No. 11 overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, certainly turns heads with his offensive skills -- he’s smart, quick and can dangle with the best. And he plays with an ultra-competitive edge that gives opponents fits. But that competitiveness sometimes morphs into stupidity, plunking his skinny butt (5-foot-10, 180 lbs.) squarely in the sin bin. He needs to improve his defensive game and learn to control his emotions. But if he can, he could be the next Brad Marchand or Brendan Gallagher, though likely not for a few years. Fiala has impressed during his first training camp in Nashville, but the team will probably want him to hone his development overseas before turning him loose with the parent club.
