The rookie's contract allows him to earn $2.5 million in bonuses, while Wennberg's bonuses are capped at $475,000.

The 22-year-old pivot doubled his output from his rookie 2014-15 season to last year, potting eight goals and 40 points. We don't expect Wennberg to re-double himself this season, but if he adds just another 20 points he'll vault himself to one of the more valuable secondary scorers in fantasy.

"He will score more goals and he will develop more offense for us that way." Wennberg has posted six goals and 21 assists in 54 games this season.
