RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Brown is a former NCAA free agent signed by the Bolts. He struggled in the AHL last season, in large part because of a slow recovery from a broken collarbone. The playmaker will need more time in the minors to grow his game, but he'll likely be a regular in a year. He won't ever be an offensive wizard, but he will one day bounce between the second and third lines. And maybe even top the 55-point mark.
Maybe Brown will buck the odds -- there just aren't that many college free agents who turn into consistent offensive performers in the NHL. He's probably better suited, though, as a third-line sparkplug who can pound the opposition and possibly chip in 10-12 goals. The Bolts' wings are thin among the bottom six so he has a shot at a big-league job this fall. But his fantasy impact will be slim.
