Philip Larsen: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Larsen was called up from the minors early last season due to Alex Goligoski's hand injury and was a constant presence on Dallas' blueline for the remainder of the season (save for a few minor injuries). He showed surprisingly good play in his own zone and his offensive game should being to emerge as he matures. He's a decent bet to approach 25 points in a full season.
Larsen's first full season in North American was a success, as he chipped in some offense (4-17 in 54 games with Dallas' AHL team) and saw brief time in the NHL for the second straight year. The Stars will likely want him to play most of the season in the AHL, further refining his game and filling out physically, but there's a nice future ahead for the puck-moving blueliner.
Larsen picked up an assist in two games at the NHL level last year, but spent most of the season against older competition in the Sweedish Elite League. He gets high marks for his hockey sense, though it hasn't translated into big offensive totals from the blue line.
