Cody Hodgson: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Hodgson struggled after being acquired at the trade deadline from Vancouver, but showed flashes of brilliance with three multi-point games in March. There's a reason he's been considered one of hockey's top prospects since being drafted in 2008, and patient fantasy owners have high hopes. The Sabres thought enough of Hodgson to send budding power forward Zack Kassian back to Vancouver. Look for Hodgson to approach 50 points playing a top-six role in Buffalo, something he couldn't cement in Vancouver.
Hodgson made a quiet debut with the Canucks in 2010-11, finishing with two points in eight games while seeing limited ice time. Despite the lack of fireworks during his NHL debut, Hodgson remains one of the better prospects in hockey. He finally appears to be over the back issues that plagued him for the past two seasons, and with Ryan Kesler (hip) expected to miss up to the first month of the regular season, Hodgson may get a shot at significant ice time for the Canucks. If given the opportunity, Hodgson has the talent to be one of the better scoring options in the 2011-12 rookie class.
After finding himself near the top of most prospects list the past couple years, Hodgson took a step backwards last season. The 2008 first-round pick dealt with a back injury that held him out of action until early February. He managed to showcase his first-line skills after returning, racking up 30 points (11 G, 19 A) in 24 regular season and playoff appearances with Brampton of the OHL. Hodgson was close to landing a gig with the Canucks last year and will get another shot in training camp this fall. He’s a legit rookie-of-the-year candidate if he can secure a spot on the Canucks’ roster, so keep him on your radar.
Hodgson is one of the top prospects in all of hockey. He finished his third season with Brampton of the OHL last year, totaling 43 goals and 49 assists in 53 games while taking home league MVP honors. He's expected to make the Canucks' roster out of training camp and will likely center the team's third line. Rookies often struggle, but Hodgson is considered one of the favorites for the Calder Memorial Trophy and could become a fantasy mainstay for years to come.
Compared to Edmonton's Sam Gagne, Hodgson is the Canucks' top offensive prospect. He is training hard this preseason with hopes of making the team as an 18-year-old. Hodgson is definitely worth a late flier if he lands a roster spot.
