24-Year-Old CenterC
Edmonton Oilers
2023 Fantasy Outlook
McLeod solidified his place as the Oilers' third-line center last season, though he also saw occasional opportunities in the top six. The 23-year-old had 23 points, 78 shots on goal and a plus-4 rating in 57 contests. He enters 2023-24 in line for a similar role, though with the Oilers' top-heavy offense, he may have a tough time producing much more than 40 points even if he takes a step forward on offense. He's likely to be limited to the second power-play unit, though he can also make an impact with his shorthanded play. There's enough upside to consider McLeod in deeper formats, but he's little more than a late-round dart throw. Read Past Outlooks

McLeod notched two assists and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Golden Knights.
ANALYSIS
McLeod has a pair of two-assist games over his last three outings, but that's all of his offense in the last 10 games. The 24-year-old set up tallies by Cody Ceci and Mattias Ekholm in this contest. McLeod has 30 points, 98 shots on net, 64 hits and a plus-14 rating through 76 appearances this season, mainly in a third-line role.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Likely avoiding arbitration
CEdmonton Oilers
August 1, 2023
McLeod and the Oilers have reportedly reached a contract agreement to avoid arbitration, Ryan Rishaug of TSN reports.
ANALYSIS
McLeod's deal is expected to be in the neighborhood of two years with a $2 million cap hit. He posted a career-high 23 points with 78 shots on net and a plus-4 rating over 57 contests last season. While he's unlikely to be much more than a third-line center for the Oilers, he can occasionally produce at a high enough level to make an impact in fantasy.
See All NHL Rumors
2022 Fantasy Outlook
McLeod was a real bright spot for the Oilers last season, posting nine goals and 21 points in 71 games despite playing the entire year at age 22. McLeod's greatest asset is his speed. He can wreak havoc on the forecheck and that helps him create scoring chances, even when playing in a bottom-six role. It's going to be difficult for McLeod to carve out fantasy value on an Edmonton team which relies so heavily on its top-two lines, but he's an ideal depth player given his youth and skill set.
