It's a small sample size of only two games, but Gavrikov's 20:16 of ice time per game is a decent increase from his 18:59 per game last season. The 25-year-old defenseman signed a three-year extension this offseason after a solid rookie campaign, so it's not surprising to see him in an increased role. However, Gavrikov still isn't very active on the powerplay, limiting his fantasy ceiling.

Gavrikov had a strong rookie season in 2019-20, notching five goals and 18 points while averaging 18:59 of ice time per game in 69 appearances. The 24-year-old blueliner will continue to be a key piece of the Blue Jackets' top four over the next three campaigns, but he won't see much time with the man advantage, and instead will primarily be used as a penalty killer from a special-teams standpoint, so it's unlikely that he'll develop into an attractive fantasy option in 2020-21.

The 23-year-old has yet to make his regular-season debut for the Jackets, but he did suit up for two games against the Bruins in last year's playoffs. After honing his skills in the KHL, Gavrikov profiles as a sturdy stay-at-home defenseman with the skating and passing ability to keep up with the pace of play in North America, making him potentially a younger version of David Savard. Given how deep the Columbus blue line is, however, Gavrikov will likely see a lot of time in the press box unless injuries open up some ice time for him.
