RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Magnus Hellberg.
A crowded crease in Nashville prompted the Preds to deal Hellberg to the Rangers in July, but he won't necessarily find an easier path to the NHL with his new organization. Hellberg made his NHL debut in 2013-14 when Pekka Rinne went down with a hip infection, but with the Preds' starting netminder back to full health this past season, Hellberg played exclusively at AHL Milwaukee, where he went 15-10-6 with a 2.33 GAA and .913 save percentage. It appears Hellberg will be bound for the AHL ranks again this coming season, where he'll likely serve as the No. 2 goalie behind Mackenzie Skapski.
