Observations:

January 2017 – Kerfoot hasn't lost a step since making the team out of camp, now up to 30 points in 41 games – good for 6th among rookies. he has cemented his spot in the lineup thanks to his excellent vision in the offensive zone and ability to play both at center and on the wing. He doesn't bring peripheral stats other than FOW, but he's a permanent top-six forward. Hayden Soboleski

 

October 2017 – Kerfoot has scored his first NHL goal, his second point in four NHL games. He had little trouble making the lineup out of camp thanks to his fantastic vision when passing the puck, and has been seeing regular minutes in the top-six serving as the left winger beside Duchene. This is an excellent place to be for fantasy value, and should allow him to rack up between 30-40 points as a rookie. He does have competition on the wing, so he'll have to keep playing well to avid being usurped by Landeskog or Wilson. Hayden Soboleski

 

August 2017- Kerfoot has passed on New Jersey and multiple other suitors to sign a two-year ELC with Colorado. He certainly has the opportunity to earn an NHL position this fall, but dont be surprised if a half-season or more of AHL seasoning comes first. His long-term outlook depends heavily on how other risky bottom-six players like Yakupov, Colbourne, and Nieto play, as its possible none are with the team next season. Kerfoot is not going to become a fantasy stud by any means, but he has leadership experience and Hobey-Baker nominee prestige, and a year of very good NCAA numbers. If his recent success translates to pro, then the Avs have done well. Hayden Soboleski

 

April 2017 – Kerfoot's impressive 2016-17 campaign closed as his second-ranked Harvard squad bowed out of the Frozen Four Tournament after dropping their semifinal contest to eventual runner-up
