RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

The undersized Calvert solidified a spot for himself last season in the Blue Jackets' bottom six, providing energy, a blue collar work ethic and some surprising scoring punch down the stretch. He won't see enough top unit ice time to ever be a big fantasy contributor, but Calvert is showing signs of developing into a player the opposition hates to see hop over the boards.

2012-13

Calvert hit the wall hard as a sophomore, managing just three assists in 13 NHL games, but his 17 goals, 36 points and 52 PIMs in 56 AHL games speak to his potential as a two-way forward. The Blue Jackets will be looking for grit and any offense they can get this season, so if Calvert can start to harness his skills, he has a chance to replicate those AHL numbers on the bigger stage.

2011-12

Calvert didn't look out of place at all in his first taste of the NHL, scoring 11 goals and 20 points in 42 games while maintaining a positive plus-minus rating on a team that got outscored by half-a-goal a night on average. He's got some offensive upside once he's established himself as a big league regular, but for now look for him to pay his dues on an energy line, or riding the Columbus-Springfield shuttle.

2010-11

Could have an NHL future as a second/third line winger, but he's still a year or two away from regular duty.
