Kris Newbury: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Newbury spent last season with the Connecticut Whale of the AHL and totaled 64 points in 65 games. Newbury is 30 years old, so he's what baseball fans would call a four-A player, but he is someone fantasy owners should keep an eye on if he gets a chance with the Rangers as he's shown he can put up points when given the opportunity.
Newbury, a 28-year-old center, has spent most of his career in the minors. His best season came in 2006-07, when he played in 15 games, registering four points (2 G, 2 A). At only 5-foot-10, Newbury is smaller than most NHL centers. With center and team captain Chris Drury out of the lineup due to injury at the beginning of the season, Newbury had a chance to step up. However, the Rangers sent him down to Hartford of the AHL ahead of 2010-11.
At 27, Newbury is far from a prospect, but he'll likely spend this season at Grand Rapids unless a strong training camp gives him a short-term opportunity in Detroit while Darren Helm is sidelined for the early weeks of the regular season with a shoulder injury.
Despite pouring in 43 points in 57 games last season in the AHL, Newbury will likely never get a real shot to be anything but a fourth-line NHLer. He managed to stick in the bigs last season for 28 whole games. There, he averaged 4:22 in ice time and had a goal, an assist and 37 PIMs.
Newbury is nothing more than a role player, a Quad-A player in baseball teams. Pretty good in the minors but not much in the bigs.
