RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Tim Jackman.
Despite breaking his hand and switching teams midseason, Jackmanís points-per-game average has increased in each of the last three seasons. It will be interesting to see if his productivity continues to improve now that he is entering a contract year. But that still wonít make him fantasy worthy, even in sin bin leagues -- he might end up in part-time duty and thatís never a good combination.
Jackman has been a steady force on Calgary's fourth line for a couple years now and had five points in 42 games in 2012-13. Coaches love his grit and work ethic, and he should find himself on the familiar fourth line to start the season. Points won't be easy to find there, but he could bring you 80 to 100 PIMs.
Jackmanís production slipped in 2011-12, as he scored nine less goals, seven less assists and his plus/minus plummeted by 25. The Flames like his grit and toughness, but with some of the youth rising through the ranks, Jackman will have to win any slot he takes in the top 12 forwards.
Jackman deposited 23 points (10 G, 13 A) in the bank for the Flames last season, while providing a physical presence in all three zones. Although the 6-foot-4 winger will never consistently be a fantasy phenom, his energetic style of play has fit in nicely with Calgary. The winger is in a contract year, but he could drive up his bargain price tag of just $550,000 per year with a successful campaign in 2011-12.
Jackman compiled the most penalty minutes for the Islanders in 2008-09. As well, his 155 PIMs was the most he ever racked up in a season at any level and was good enough to tie him for the 14th highest total in the league. He's not a household name by any means, so he should come cheap on draft day.
Jackman had a career year with Bridgeport in 2007-08, notching 36 points in 44 games. However, he has not been able to make a big impact whenever his number gets called to skate with the club and we don't see that changing this year.
Jackman has yet to make enough impact to stay in the NHL for more than just a few games per season. We don't see that changing on Long Island this year.
Has a shot to make the team as a depth defenseman, but is likely to play in the minors and wait for an injury to hit one of the Kings blueliners.
Jackman is still young, but his opportunities to establish himself as an NHL-caliber power forward, or even a fourth-line winger, are starting to dwindle. The next season or two could be critical to his career.
