RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The centerpiece of the deal that sent David Legwand to Detroit, Jarnkrok, 22, could turn out to be a real steal for Nashville. After notching nine points in six games for AHL Milwaukee, the young center was recalled by the Preds and chipped in nine points over 12 games down the stretch, including three points in the season finale against Minnesota. Jarkrok projects as a solid playmaking center with excellent puck control who can play on either of the team’s top two lines. However, the Preds are now stacked down the middle, so Jarnkrok could very well start this season back in the AHL. Nevertheless, he has a very bright future in the NHL, and it’s just a matter of time before he lands as an everyday player.
Jarnkrok hopes to get a shot at the Red Wings' roster in 2012-13 after spending a little time in the AHL last season, but is likely still a year or two away from making the big leagues.
