RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Big Rig made his pro debut last year, logging 16 games with Dallas and finishing with 33 points and a plus-19 rating in 59 AHL games. He will get a chance to win a roster spot with the big club come training camp, but will likely begin the year in the AHL again. There, he'll skate meaningful minutes instead of getting limited time as the Stars' sixth or seventh defender.
Oleksiak was Dallas' first-round pick (14th overall) back in 2011 and gets good marks for his skating despite his massive size (6-7, 240). His pro debut was solid (12 goals and 20 assists in 59 games in the OHL) and he projects as that dominating physical defenseman that Dallas has missed since the halcyon days of Derian Hatcher.
Oleksiak was Dallas' first round pick (14th overall) in the 2011 draft. His huge size (6'7", 240) gets most of the attention, but his agility and puck moving skills separate him from most other ice behemoths. He'll play junior hockey in 2011-12 after leaving Northeastern.
