2014-15 Fantasy Hockey Outlook

It didn't just seem like Granlund got better with every game last season -- he actually did. He delivered an impressive 21 points in his last 25 games, which makes it hard to believe he wasn't guaranteed to make the roster at the start of last season. He's now the Wild's No....

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

As a superstar in the Finnish Elite League and as the ninth overall pick in the 2010 draft, Granlund entered last season as a favorite for rookie-of-the-year honors. However, his first season playing in North America didn't go as planned as he had just six points in his first 19 games and was sent to the AHL. He returned in April to play six games, but the Wild gave him a smaller role after he was centering a top-three line at the start of the year. Granlund didn't adjust well to the size and physical nature of the NHL and struggled with bad penalties and defensive lapses. He did score 28 points in 29 games in the AHL, so he showed he can produce outside of Sweden. However, he'll need to earn his role with the Wild and he could begin the season in the AHL. At age 21, it's still early enough in his career that he may figure out the NHL game and fulfill last year's hype.

2012-13

The ninth overall pick in the 2010 draft, Granlund has played the the last three seasons in Finland and was a superstar in the Finnish Elite League. As a 19-year old he let the league in scoring for a second consecutive season. The Wild will put him on the second line to begin his NHL career, which could make him an early favorite for the Calder Memorial Trophy (for rookie of the year). He has great speed, puck handling skills and a knack for putting the puck in the net, but his size (5-10, 180 pounds) could be more of an issue in the NHL.

2011-12

The Wild made Granlund a first-round selection in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, snagging him with the ninth overall pick. Speed, playmaking ability and hockey smarts have all contributed to Granlund's billing as a top prospect, though naysayers are quick to point out his small size of 5-foot-8, 169 pounds. The Finn also dealt with a concussion, which wiped out roughly half of his 2010-11 campaign with HIFK Helsinki of the SM-liiga league. However, Granlund has managed 76 points (21 G, 55 A) in 82 games over the past two seasons overseas, and while it's not clear when he will make his NHL debut, opportunists should consider stashing him on keeper rosters in 2011-12.

2010-11

The ninth overall pick in the 2010 draft, Granlund is the real deal. He played in Finlandís top league and averaged a point per game. More impressive: he was only 17 years old.
