Fantasy Summary

Suess could be a prolific scorer in the NHL because of his ability to drive towards the net. This would make him effective on the Jets powerplay, think Patric Hornqvist.

Observations

March 2019 – Suess’s rookie campaign with the Moose has been a bit of a let down to say the least. After finding his groove in mid-December with goals in back-to-back games on the team’s California road trip, he suffered a fluke upper-body injury at the end of a post-whistle scrum. He’s been out ever since and it seems likely he won’t suit up again this year. Suess has eight goals and 12 points in 26 games this season. Jamie Zadow

 

May 2018 – Suess is one of those players that seems to find himself in the “right place at the right time” as he has a great nose for the net. In his senior year at Minnesota State University-Mankato, he finished as a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award, following a dominating season with 22 goals and 43 points in 40 games. He’s not overpowering by any means — 5-11 and 190 pounds — but, he plays bigger than his size and is strong on his skates in front of the net. A former 5th-round pick by the Jets in 2014, the Minnesota native signed a one-year entry level deal back in March. He should fit nicely in the Moose lineup this season and I would expect the Jets front office to give him a long, hard look throughout the year to see if he can jump up to the NHL and make an immediate impact. Jamie Zadow
