RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Subscribe now to see our 2013-14 outlook.

2012-13

Howard rebounded from a disappointing 2010-11 to deliver his best goals-against average (2.12) over his three seasons as the Wings' starting netminder while parlaying the league's 10th-best save percentage (.920 ) into a career-high six shutouts. The workload last season would have been larger, but Howard missed time in February with a broken index finger. Questions about his ability as a true number one goaltender have subsided, but the loss of Nicklas Lidstrom and perhaps to a greater extent, Brad Stuart, could have an understandably large impact on Howard's numbers this season. Even with an improved backup behind him (Jonas Gustavsson), Howard should see 65 starts this time around, but he may be pressed to reach the 35-win plateau for the fourth consecutive season.

2011-12

The Wings extended Howard's contract in February, locking in the young netminder for two more seasons at a very reasonable rate ($2.25 million/year). Although Howard regressed in terms of GAA (2.79) and save percentage (.908), the front office saw enough in his development to commit to him for two more seasons. The Wings' inability to sign a top-tier backup during free agency should lead to another 60-65 starts for the 27-year-old this time around. Thanks to the offensive support he'll receive and the stable of blueliners in front of him. Howard is a good bet to break the 35-win mark for the third consecutive season.

2010-11

Howard entered last season as the backup to Chris Osgood almost by default, because he'd slowly made his way through the organization and had to clear waivers in order to be sent back to the AHL. Osgood struggled in October, giving Howard an opportunity to earn more playing time in the first half of the season and he quickly earned the confidence of head coach Mike Babcock. The rookie netminder narrowly missed out on Calder Trophy honors, posting a 37-15-10 record with a 2.26 goals-against average and .924 save percentage and three shutouts in 61 regular season starts. At 26, Howard is young enough to handle a very heavy workload and he showed no signs of wearing down when Babcock leaned on him for more than 20 starts in a row during the team's playoff push in March and April (16-2-1). The combination of 60-plus starts and having a good squad in front of him should make him a fringe top-five netminder on most draft boards.

2009-10

When Osgood faltered last season, it was then-backup Conklin who ultimately provided stability between the pipes before Ozzie was able to rediscover his game in time for the postseason. The Wings have been patient with Howard since drafting him back in 2003, but he has to clear waivers now in order to be sent down to Grand Rapids, which makes him the No. 2 netminder in Detroit after Conklin departed for St. Louis in free agency. Howard had a 2.54 GAA and .916 save percentage in 45 starts with the Griffins last season and he'll need to be just as good - if not better - now that he could see 25-30 starts in the Motor City. We like him more because of the team around him than anything else, but the slow ascent through the system could prove to be beneficial.

2008-09

Howard still maintains the "goaltender of the future" label in Detroit after signing a three-year extension with the club in July, but he's going to have to wait another year after the Wings brought in Ty Conklin to back up Chris Osgood this season. Since he can still be called up and sent down to the AHL without being exposed to waivers, Howard will be the primary netminder in Grand Rapids for 2008-09 while keeping his phone ringer turned up in case injuries prompt the call to Detroit.

2007-08

He'll spend the year in the AHL, prepping as the team's goaltender of the future. Short of an injury to Hasek and Osgood, Howard isn't someone you probably want to own until at least 2008-09.

2006-07

He’s still considered the team’s goaltender of the future, but with Dominik Hasek and Chris Osgood ahead of Howard on the depth chart, the future will have to wait a year or two. Howard could be a Top 10 fantasy goalie as soon as 2007-08, depending on how Osgood ages, and perhaps the payoff could come sooner if the veteran goalies have injury problems this winter.

2005-06

Howard is considered the team's goalie of the future, though he'll probably spend 2005-06 in the minors. Keep an eye on the youngster, though; he showed dominant flashes in his three-year career at the University of Maine. In the 2003-04 season, he had a 1.19 goals against average and a .956 save percentage, both NCAA records. Howard's been impressive early in camp, by the way, and Chris Osgood is battling a sore groin. Very interesting.
