RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Holtby comes into the 2013-2014 season as the Caps’ number-one choice in goal. His 23 wins were good for fourth in the league, and his 90 goals allowed put him 10th among NHL goalies. He struggled out of the gate, allowing three or more goals several times in the first month of the season, but he stepped up as the season progressed. He is not yet a top-tier goalie but is expected to get the majority of starts for Washington and would make a fine No. 2 for most fantasy teams. The Capitals defense was eighth in shots allowed when Holtby was in the net, which is concerning and may limit his win total this season.

2012-13

Holtby was the new kid in town for the Caps last year and established himself as a formidable netminder in last Spring's playoffs. Filling in for injured Tomas Vokoun and Michal Neuvirth, Holtby played in 14 playoff games with a save percentage of .933. He was 7-7 in that time. Extrapolate Holtby’s playoff and regular season save percentages out, and he is in the top 5-6 net-minders in the league. It's unreasonable to conclude his playoff pace will sustain itself over a whole season, but Washington has a talented netminder here. With Vokoun gone, Holtby is the likely starter for the Caps. Holtby is unlikely to be flying off draft boards but managers in the know will tuck him away in the middle rounds.

2011-12

Holtby will be the starter in AHL Hershey, due to the signing of veteran Tomas Vokoun. With the success he had when he got his chance last year, the organization was comfortable enough to trade away Semyon Varlamov. Holtby may be the most talented of what is now two young guys in net for Washington. He has taken AHL Hershey to the Calder Cup, and will fine-tune his skills again this year. In 14 career contests, he has an amazing 10-2-2 record, including two shutouts with a 1.79 goals against average and .934 save percentage. This kid may be special, so look for the team to make room for him on the roster no later than next season.

2010-11

Holtby will be the starter in AHL Hershey as the two other young netminders get their shot. Depending on injury, Holtby may be back in the NHL this year, but possibly starting. He has the ability to become an NHL starter, but not sure if that will happen in Washington.

2009-10

Holtby, a young netminder has played strong between the pipes for the WHL Saskatoon Blades. He was 40-16-4 last year and had an impressive 2.62 goals against average and .910 save percentage. With all the young goalie talent Washington has, Holtby should be back in the WHL this year. He still has a ways to go to make it to the big league, but the kid has the talent to do just that.
