Vrana played through an unspecified injury during the Capitals' postseason run, Brian McNally of NBC Sports Washington reports. Vrana didn't notch a point during the postseason, finishing the seven-game series with a minus-1 rating, eight shots on goal, eight hits and two blocked shots. Despite the silent conclusion to his campaign, the third-year winger collected a career-best 47 points -- 24 goals and 23 assists -- over 82 games during the regular season. The marked improvements should shoot him up draft boards heading into 2019-20.
Vrana managed just eight shots and a minus-1 rating in the 2018-19 playoffs Vrana's fade late in the season likely had something to do with Washington's first-round exit at the hands of the Hurricanes. Despite the disappointing finish, the 23-year-old winger still set a career high with 24 goals and 47 points in 82 games and figures to be a top-six winger moving forward, providing plenty of fantasy upside in standard formats.
Vrana tallied a goal and two shots during Sunday's 3-1 win over the Flyers. Vrana continues to chug along with four goals and six points in 12 games during the month of March. The 23-year-old winger is breaking out in 2018-19 with 22 goals and 45 points in 76 games and should be squarely on your radar when the time comes to draft your 2019-20 fantasy roster.
Vrana scored two goals in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Penguins. His 20th and 21st tallies of the season staked the Caps to a 2-0 lead they'd quickly squander. Vrana is having a solid second NHL campaign, and the 23-year-old winger should continue to produce down the stretch on a dangerous No. 2 line alongside Nicklas Backstrom.
Vrana tallied an assist, a plus-2 rating and three shots during Tuesday's 7-2 win over the Senators. Vrana has only been held off the scoresheet twice in his last seven games, and has posted six goals and 18 points in 26 games since the calendar rolled into 2019. The 22-year-old winger has established himself as a top-six forward on a potent offensive attack and has enough fantasy value to justify rostering in many formats.
