Aberg was recalled from AHL Milwaukee on Sunday after completing a conditioning assignment.

EDGE Analysis

Aberg's conditioning stint came after being a healthy scratch for three consecutive games. The Preds appear to be satisfied with the work that Aberg put in while with Milwaukee, as he was skating on the team's third line during Monday's practice. However, Aberg shouldn't factor into many fantasy decisions based on his production and that of his linemates, Nick Bonino and Calle Jarnkrok.

Aberg was sent to AHL Milwaukee for a conditioning assignment Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

A player doesn't necessarily have to be recovering from an injury to go out on a conditioning stint. In Aberg's case, the Predators weren't able to give him enough playing time at the highest level, but having acquired center Kyle Turris, Nashville now has the luxury of giving Aberg more rink run in the AHL. The rookie has two points -- both assists -- through nine NHL games this season.

Aberg skated a season-low 7:26 in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Islanders. He also failed to crack the scoresheet for the sixth consecutive game.

EDGE Analysis

Aberg now has just a single assist in the eight games he's played this season, and he's been a healthy scratch three times. He is firmly entrenched in a bottom-six role for the Preds at the current time, and should not be counted on for fantasy purposes outside of the deepest leagues.

Aberg made his season debut for the Preds in Saturday's 4-0 loss to the Penguins, serving as an injury replacement for Kevin Fiala (upper body). He played on the third line and recorded zero points in 14:45 of ice time.

EDGE Analysis

It will be interesting to see if the 24-year-old Swede can secure himself a regular spot in the Preds' lineup this season after leading the AHL Milwaukee Admirals with 52 points in 56 games last season. If he does, it will likely continue to be in a bottom-six capacity, which gives him fairly minimal fantasy value at the current time.

Aberg signed a two-year, $1.3 million deal with Nashville on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

After appearing in only 15 games for the Preds last season, Aberg is expected to take on an expanded role -- especially considering he racked up 52 points in 56 outings with AHL Milwaukee during the 2016-17 campaign. The winger has steadily improved throughout his three-year stint with the Admirals and is a near lock for a spot on Nashville's 23-man roster. Fantasy owners looking to bolster the depth scoring in their lineups should consider adding the Swede.

Aberg is able to be selected by the Golden Knights in the expansion draft, The New York Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Predators decided to expose their second-round (37th overall) selection from the 2012 draft in Aberg. He'll be 24 years old by the start of next season -- this likely puts him at a post-prospect stage -- but the Swedish winger did show flashes of his offensive skill during the playoffs, when he recorded two goals and three assists over 16 games. A recent report on Aberg indicated that he's likely to compete for a full-time roster spot with the Predators next season, and that could still happen despite his exposure to Vegas since the new club may end up stock piling veteran players.

Aberg is expected to compete for a full-time role with the Predators next season.

EDGE Analysis

The Preds got a long look at the fleet-footed winger thanks to the team's extended run at the Stanley Cup. Aberg recorded two goals, three assists and a minus-1 rating over 16 playoff games, with the Swede's most memorable contribution coming in the form of a game-winning tally against the Ducks in Game 5 of the Western Conference quarterfinals. If he can put his two-way game on full display during training camp while making strides in the consistency department, there's reason to believe that Aberg could indeed evolve into an NHL regular as soon as next season.

Aberg scored Nashville's only goal during Wednesday's Game 2 loss to Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

Aberg showcased offensive creativity, excellent speed, deft hands and patience on the jaw-dropping goal. He was widely considered ready for the NHL this season, but because the 23-year-old Swede didn't need to clear waivers to play in the AHL, he spent the majority of the campaign with Milwaukee. Since Ryan Johansen (hip) has been out of the lineup, Aberg has upped his play, and the young winger's fantasy value is on the rise.

Aberg recorded two assists and three shots on net during Monday's Game 6 win over Anaheim.

EDGE Analysis

Aberg scored 31 goals and posted 52 points through 56 games in the AHL this season, and he's now posted a tally and the two helpers over the past two games. He's needed in a scoring role with Nashville dealing with multiple injuries up front, and Aberg has rose to the occasion. His fantasy upside is trending up, both in the short and long term.

Aberg scored his first career playoff goal in Saturday's Game 5 win over the Ducks.

EDGE Analysis

The goal turned out to be the game-winner, as Aberg picked up a rebound in the slot and took the puck past an outstretched John Gibson for a beautiful airborne goal. He skated on the top line with Filip Forsberg and Colton Sissons, where he logged 11:14 of ice time. The 23-year-old posted strong numbers in the AHL this season and could turn into a solid goal-scorer for Nashville. Look for him to build off this outing, as the Predators getting contributions from all over their lineup is a major reason why they are just one win away from the Stanley Cup Final.
