March 2020 – Malenstyn did up his points per game int he AHL this season from 0.22 to 0.33, and was called up to the NHL for three games. He is seen as depth for Washington and perhaps down the line if he can continue to up his AHL production could be seen as a future NHLer. As of now expect him to get called up if the Capitals get injuries to its bottom line players. Pat Quinn


December 2019 – Malenstyn was called up to the Capitals at the end of November to play in a bottom line role. In the three games he got in four shots and averaged around 10 minutes of ice time per game. Pat Quinn


September 2019 – Malenstyn was sent down to the AHL as he looks to be a future bottom line NHLer if he is ever to make the NHL. Pat Quinn


June 2019 – In the coming season Malenstyn is going to have to up his production to become relevant in fantasy circles. As of now he seems like he could cap out as a middle six AHL winger, or a bottom line NHL forward. Pat Quinn


March 2019 – Malenstyn is acclimating fine in his first AHL season with 14 points in 63 games, as he has amazingly escaped injuries in his first Bears season as 95% of the team had to have been hurt at some point in the season. Malenstyn has some skill but who knows if he can reach the NHL as right now he needs to learn to score in the AHL first. Pat Quinn


June 2018 – Malenstyn was injured for a large portion of the first half of his final season with the Calgary Hitmen, as he suited up for four games registering three assists. In December he was traded to the Swift Current Broncos and came back at the end of December to finish the regular season with 29 points in 38 games. He was not used as a top forward for the Broncos and it showed with his numbers. During the Broncos playoff run Malenstyn posted 11 points in 26 games. He is a smart versatile forwardwho could fill a middle six role, but may be best suited for a bottom six role. He is likely to play in the AHL for the entire 2018-19 season, so how he reacts to the professional grind will show a lot about the player he can become. Pat Quinn
