A chic preseason pick to take home the Stanley Cup last season, the Senators were instead one of the NHL's biggest disappointments. Expectations will be dialed back in 2014-15, but blueliner Erik Karlsson should nonetheless remain a fantasy stud.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Zibanejad registered seven goals and 13 assists in 42 games with the Senators in 2013, and is yet another part of the future in Ottawa. The 20-year-old has a promising career ahead of him, and could stake out a spot in the top six as the fourth winger behind Milan Michalek, Bobby Ryan, and Clarke MacArthur. If he stays at center, it will be with the third or fourth line, depending on what the team has planned for Jean-Gabriel Pageau. Keep an eye on how the Sens are using him in training camp to see whether or not he'll get the increased opportunities of a top-six forward.

2012-13

The 19-year-old Swedish forward, the sixth overall pick in 2011, played in Ottawa's first nine regular season games last season before being sent back to Sweden to play for Djurgardens of the Swedish Elite League. He scored the golden goal for team Sweden in the finals of the World Junior Menís Hockey Championship against Russia, but once he returned to Sweden, he suffered a concussion and never did find his game for the rest of the season. Now, fully recovered, Zibanejad will look to earn a forward spot on the Senators out of training camp. Big, fast, and skilled, Z-Bad, as he's known, could potentially line up on one of the top two lines, but thatís likely not a realistic scenario. Interestingly enough, while he was drafted as a center, he'll likely play on the wing in Ottawa if he does earn a spot. Heís shown much more offensive flair on the wing than at center, as there is not as much defensive responsibility, something for which heís not known. Should he not make the team, Zibanejad will start the year in the AHL playing for Binghamton. A realistic offensive expectation is for 5-10 goals and 10-15 assists in his first full NHL season. He has a boatloads of potential, but heís still a raw prospect. Those in keeper leagues will want to target Zibanejad in the later rounds.

2011-12

One of the more NHL-ready players to emerge from the 2011 Entry Draft, Zibanejad will arrive at Ottawa's training camp in September looking to win a spot with the club. Gifted with great puck skills, a big body, and speed to spare, the 6'2", 192 pound center plays a very physical, North American style game. Should he not win a spot with Ottawa out of training camp, Zibanejad will return to Sweden to play for Djurgarden where he'll be expected to play an offensive role, take key faceoffs, and see time on both the penalty kill and powerplay. While we don't expect him to make the 2011-12 version of the Ottawa Senators, Zibanejad should crack the team for good in 2012-13.
