Matt Moulson: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Islanders GM Garth Snow uncovered a gem in Moulson when he found him on the scrap heap three years ago. During those three season with the Islanders, Moulson has scored 97 goals, and posted a career-best 69 points and 36 goals last year. Moulson is not a great skater nor does he have a great shot, but he does know how to put the puck in the net, and that is all that matters. Playing on a line with John Tavares doesn't hurt much either for one of the league's most quietly consistent players. Moulson likley won't be the bargain this year that he has been the past three seasons.
Last season, Moulson proved that his breakout campaign from 2009-10 was no fluke as he registered yet another 30-plus goal campaign and added 22 assists to boot. Moulson earned a new three-year contract for this spectacular season. He is now a main part of the Isles' offense and plays on a line with the bright John Tavares. Teams will focus on shutting down Tavares, so Moulson might slide under the radar and continue to pile up impressive statistics.
Moulson came out of nowhere last season to score 30 goals for the Islanders. That was certainly not expected when he signed a one-year deal with the team before the start of the season. The Islanders are waiting for Moulson to have another solid season before they sign him to a multi-year deal, so the incentive is there for Moulson to continue lighting the lamp. He should begin the season on the top line with John Tavares.
Moulson has averaged nearly 25 goals a season for his three years in the AHL. He'll again play in the AHL in 2009-10, this time for Bridgeport. That being said, the Islanders may look his way for a stint or two throughout the season once injuries start to happen.
Moulson bounced around between the AHL and the NHL last season, averaging a point a game at the AHL and giving the Kings some solid secondary scoring. He enters training camp with a chance to earn himself a spot on one of the Kings' bottom two lines and offers limited fantasy upside as a result.
The leading scorer for Manchester in the AHL last season is back to start this season with the Monarchs. He probably will stay with Manchester for the rest of the season and look to make the Kings next season.
Moulson will likely play in the AHL this season he can adjust to the pro game from the collegiate level.
