RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Fraser briefly saw NHL time last season, notching three points over 12 games. He was a productive sniper for the AHL's Texas Stars though, scoring 33 goals and adding 13 assists over 62 games. The 23-year-old – who came over in the Tyler Seguin blockbuster – should challenge for a roster spot with the Bruins, presumably as a third-line winger.
Fraser was the highest goal-scoring, first-year player in the AHL last year, racking up 37 in 73 games for the Texas Stars. He needs work in his own zone (he finished the year at minus-13 despite the nice point total), but enters the year as Dallas' most advanced prospect at left wing. He'll likely see occasional time in the NHL this year, but he'll spend the bulk of the year in the AHL again.
