RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Nick Holden.
Holden battled injuries last season and may have missed his window to get a look on the Columbus roster, as the club continues to add more youth and talent on the blue line. At best he's a third-pair prospect, but he could yet find a regular gig in the NHL. He saw five games with the Jackets last season, failing to register a point while grabbing nine in 25 games at AHL Springfield.
Holden has honed his craft at the AHL level the last few seasons, and is just about ready for a regular role as a stay-at-home NHL defenseman. If he doesn't break camp with Columbus, he'll be the first guy called up when injuries strike.
Depth defenseman scored 6-17-23 in 68 AHL games last season.
Depth defenseman scored 4-18-22 in 61 AHL games last season.
Minor league depth defenseman, but he does have a little upside.
