RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

The Panthers took Gudbranson with the third overall pick in the 2010 NHL Draft, but he's more of a defensive defenseman than a puck-moving one. He had four assists in 32 games last season, and with a minus-22 rating, his only value was in the penalty minutes category, where he had 47. If he doesn't develop a scoring touch this year, he won't be nearly as valuable to fantasy owners as he is to his team.

2012-13

Gudbranson made the jump to the NHL, registering two goals and six assists in 72 games this past season with the Panthers. The former first-round, third-overall pick in 2011, has a big shot from the point and passing ability worthy of becoming a decent fantasy play for years to come. Gudbranson may still be a year or two away from making a leap into fantasy relevance, but should be viewed as a solid long-term keeper option. His path to contributing offensively isn't the clearest, as the Panthers will rely on Brian Campbell, Dmitry Kulikov and the newly-signed veteran, Filip Kuba on the power play. Regardless, Gudbranson is a name well worth remembering.

2010-11

Much of Florida's success in the upcoming season depends on the quality of their blue line. At 18 years old, Gudbranson figures to be a big part of that equation, even though he was just drafted this year. With his solid two-way game, he's already being considered a Chris Pronger prototype of sorts, and that bodes well for his future with the Panthers.
