RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Subscribe now to see our 2013-14 outlook.

2012-13

Eaves was struck in the face while blocking a shot and the resulting jaw fracture and post-concussion symptoms ended his season after just 10 games last year. Even with the need for secondary scoring, Eaves won't be thrust into a top-six gig and his ceiling remains that of 20-25 point player if he's healthy. All signs point to him being 100 percent when training camp gets underway in September, putting him on track for a 12-minute per game checking role.

2011-12

Eaves is back in Detroit after signing a three-year deal as an unrestricted free agent in July. He should be utilized in a similar checking-line role again this season, so the former first-round pick will likely have a difficult time cracking the 30-point mark. Still, the Wings don't need him for his offense, so you should follow their lead unless defensively sound role-players provide value in your league format.

2010-11

In a word, grinder. Eaves spent most of the year as a checking-line winger, doing the dirty work and earning the trust of the team's coaching staff with strong two-way play. He rebounded at the offensive end after a pair of quiet seasons spent in Ottawa and Carolina, but Eaves isn't forecasted for more than a third-line and penalty-killing role in Detroit and he's unlikely to push much further than the 25-30 point range as long as he's with the Wings.

2009-10

Eaves has proven that he can score at the NHL level -- 20 goals in 58 games as a rookie with Ottawa -- so it's possible that he'll follow in the footsteps of other Detroit resurrection projects that have ultimately led to the likes of Mikael Samuelsson and Dan Cleary becoming significant role players for the Wings after getting discarded by their former clubs. Don't be surprised if he spikes back into the 35-40 point range now that he's playing with a well-oiled offensive machine.

2008-09

If you need to take a chance in the late rounds of a deep draft, Eaves offers decent prospects of a significant increase from last season's curtailed numbers. In shallow leagues, he belongs nowhere near your draft list. At 24, he's entering his fourth NHL season, and should benefit from the experience of the first three.

2007-08

With the trade of second-line winger Peter Schaefer to Boston, Eaves should see his ice-time increase and may be given a chance to play on the second line. With Eaves' skill and fine hockey sense, he should be able to get close to 20 goals this year.

2006-07

Eaves should improve his totals from last year as heíll be given more playing time now that Havlatís spot on the second line is open. At only 22 years of age, the right winger has already impressed his peers. With that said, Eaves is, at best, a late-round pick and should only be considered in deep drafts and keeper leagues.

2005-06

Eaves is a longshot to make the team this year but he's gifted offensively and has a bright future with Ottawa.

2004-05
