Fantasy Summary

As with other smallish players, Adams contributes to his team with above-average skating ability and hard work. He didn’t achieve point-per-game totals until his fourth season with the University of North Dakota, although he blossomed in his final two seasons. He does register a healthy goals-to-assists ratio, helped by a surprisingly heavy shot.

March 2022 – The short (5-9) but stocky (200 pounds) winger has split time between the ECHL and AHL. With the Worcester Railers, the 23-year-old LW had three goals and four assists in 10 games. A level up with Bridgeport, he has four goals and five assists in 34 games. Not impressive but not bad for the first-year pro. Mark Allan

October 2021 – Without seeing action with Bridgeport, Adams was assigned to the ECHL’s Worcester Railers. The sixth-round draft pick must earn a ticket to the AHL. Mark Allan

October 2021 – After four seasons at the University of North Dakota, Adams will make his pro debut in Bridgeport. Mark Allan

July 2021 – Bypassing a chance to be a UFA, Adams signed with the team that drafted him. His two-year, two-way contract begins in 2021-2022. The 22-year-old set personal NCAA highs with 14 goals, 20 assists and 34 points in 29 appearances with the University of North Dakota, finishing second on the squad in each category. The cherry on top was a team-high plus-22 rating. He capped his senior year by helping the Fighting Hawks to the NCHC championship and was named to the NCHC All-Tournament Team. In 122 outings over four campaigns, he totaled 33 goals and 44 helpers, adding a plus-32 mark. Previously, he made the USHL all-rookie team in 2016. As you might expect for a sixth-round pick, Adams is likely to play more in the minors than the big time. If he is called up, he can expect to be used as a depth player. He would have to hurdle several players in the system to get meaningful NHL playing time. Every successful team needs hard-working, strong-skating role players, but his future will be determined by how far his offense takes him. Mark Allan
