Fantasy Summary

Lots of tools but none elite, useful pro but bottom-six upside


Observations

February 2020 – Veronneau has been traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs. He likely fits in as an AHL piece on a roster that has struggled this season, partially due to it’s talented reserved being emptied by promotions and trades. His 10 points in 33 games for AHL Belleville so far is underwhelming, especially considering they are the highest-scoring team in the division, but he was a hot target out of college for a reason so the 24-year-old still has a chance to be fantasy relevant should he fight his way into a bottom-six role one day. Hayden Soboleski

 

November 2019 – With just six points in 14 games at the AHL level and just two scoreless games with the NHL club, the 23-year-old Veronneau has been underwhelming if nothing else. He hasn’t looked particularly dangerous, seemingly struggling to translate his offensive game from college to the pros. Thus far, Veronneau looks to be a depth player who will likely serve as an NHL call-up when the team needs a body. He is a depth prospect at best at this point but every lottery ticket is worth something, it’s just a matter of time before we find out whether the Senators are a winner with Veronneau. Tony Ferrari

September 2019 – After appearing in 12 games at the end of last season with the Senators, Veronneau came into training camp hoping to claim a bottom-six job with Ottawa. Although that wasn’t in the cards, he was assigned to Belleville on September 22nd, he should be a major player on a Belleville team that looks like a contender in the AHL. An easy option to call-up for the rebuilding Ottawa Senators, expect to see a cameo or two from Veronneau throughout the 2019-20 season. Tony Ferrari

March 2019 – The highly sought after NCAA free agent has signed a two-year deal with the Ottawa Senators. During his collegiate career with Princeton, Veronneau averaged 1.11 points per game. Growing up in Ottawa, expect the homegrown product to have a boost for his first few games; where it takes him remains to be seen, there will be a number of openings in Ottawa over the next 14 months. His skating alone could certainly be enough to keep him at the NHL level. If Veronneau is able to grow his offensive game and get solid deployment with skilled players, he could prove to be one of the rare impact college free agents at the NHL level. At this time, monitor his usage going forward. Jordan Deshane
