RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Emelin was Montreal's biggest banger for a second straight season in 2012-13, but an April knee injury leaves his status for the start of the upcoming season in jeopardy. There isn't much flash to Emelin's game. He's a top hitter, so the Canadiens will miss that element on defense. His absence will open up a spot for prospect Jarrod Tinordi.

2012-13

Emelin signed with the Canadiens prior to the 2011-12 season and came with little expectation. After some early-season healthy scratches, Emelin used his physicality to earn a greater share of playing time as the season wore on, finishing with seven points in 67 games. He was the team's leader in hits and averaged nearly 18 minutes per-game after the All-Star break. He'll be one of the top four defensemen to open the season.

2011-12

Emelin was drafted by Montreal in 2004, and after two failed attempts to get him to North America, the Canadiens finally got their man. And it might be a good thing it took seven years to get him here, as Emelin has grown physically in that time. He plays an aggressive brand of defense and was largely seen as a stay-at-home body until his final season with the Kazan Ak-Bars of the KHL. Emelin got ample work on their power play and posted a career-high 11 goals (seven on the PP) and 16 assists with a plus-17. He is expected to challenge for a starting spot immediately. Though he signed a two-way contract, he has an out that will let him go back to Russia if he doesn't make the Canadiens roster.
