Ottawa Senators
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Fresh on the heels of a 2021-22 campaign which saw an upper-body injury limit him to just five appearances, Pinto played in all 82 games for Ottawa a season ago. He put up 20 goals and 35 points, including nine with the man advantage. There are a lot of mouths to feed offensively for the Senators, but Pinto, who won't be 23 until mid-November, has proven to be a solid source of secondary scoring for both the team and deep-league fantasy managers. He's a better keeper or dynasty asset than redraft pick. Read Past Outlooks

July 2, 2024
Pinto signed a two-year, $7.5 million contract with the Senators on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
After some concern that Pinto would request a trade or be priced out of the Senators' budget, the two sides were able to get a bridge deal done. Pinto had 27 points, including six on the power play, over 41 contests in 2023-24. The 23-year-old should be a consistent top-six presence in 2024-25, and he could be poised for a breakout year. He will be a restricted free agent at the conclusion of the contract.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
Pinto was great at the tail end of the 2020-21 campaign, posting seven points in a dozen games with Ottawa. He played just five games last season before suffering an upper-body injury which required surgery and ended his year. It's fair to wonder where Pinto fits into the pecking order on a reloaded Senators team now that he's fully healthy, but the Long Island native is a former fringe top-100 prospect who won't turn 22 years old until November. Pinto remains a sneaky stash in all keeper/dynasty formats.
Pinto is destined to be the Senators' second-line center, but not for a few years. At 20, he could make the Sens' roster out of camp this season because of his diligence on the defensive side of the game. After all, he debuted in 2020-21 after a nomination for the Hobey Baker Award and delivered seven points in 12 games. Pinto hasn't looked out of place at training camp this fall -- his shot is as sharp as ever and his work ethic is off the charts. But Pinto's development would be best served in the AHL, where he could play up the lineup and learn to be more dominant. Still, his growth curve has been steep and we wouldn't bet against him.
