Kyle Palmieri: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Palmieri registered 10 goals and 11 assists in his 42 games last season and looks to build on that in 2013-14. He certainly has shown he can score in the minors and the Ducks need that to balance out their attack. He may be small, but he gets what it takes to play in a big-man's game. And he knows where his own zone is, too. That's a combination that could lead to a 40 to 45 point (or slightly more) breakout this year. Put his name on that little list of sleepers you file away in your smartphone and be ready to scoop him away from your unsuspecting leaguemates. Hey -- in a couple of years, you could be looking at a 65-plus point dynamo. Keeper leaguers, rejoice.
This is Palmieri's year. The Ducks need depth and he's shown a scorer's touch in the AHL. He's small, but he plays a strong, two-way game, always keeps his feet churning and his hands are oh-so-soft. There aren't really any holes in his game and he should step into a full-time role as the Ducks third-line center for 2012-13. He could also get his feet wet on the team's second power-play unit. Don't expect fireworks -- just sturdy, gritty play. But before long, he'll assume Saku Koivu's role as the team's second-line center and that's when we could see the 60-point production.
The 20-year-old Palmieri is another player in a long line of Ducks prospects looking to impress this year. The winger appeared in just 10 games with the Ducks last year, scoring one goal and finishing with a minus-1 rating. As a first-round pick in 2009, Palmieri will try to find a spot on the fourth line to start the season and work his way up. In 2010-11, Palmieri led the AHLís Syracuse Crunch with 29 goals and ended the season with 15 goals over the final 14 games.
This guy is interesting -- he's an annoying shift disturber with skills that could elevate him to the top-six in the NHL. He has great wheels and can blow by defenders on the outside. And he sends guys through the boards on the forecheck. He's headed to Notre Dame but his style will pull him to the pros before his four years are done.
