RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the best fantasy prospect of them all … at least as far as the 2013 Entry Draft goes? Drouin has it all – agility, vision, skill, hockey smarts, competitiveness, soft hands and more. Add in patience and he already has elite puck possession skills. He can play both wing and center, and is built in the same sub-six-foot style as offensive dynamos like Pavel Datsyuk or Patrick Kane. Yes, he’s that good. He was named CHL Player of the Year ahead of his teammate Nathan McKinnon and projects as a better point producer. Fantasy owners should target him as their top pick from the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. Then grab a wobbly pop, some popcorn and the remote, and get ready for the highlight reel moves … and goals. He could break camp on the first line. Yup, with Steven Stamkos and Marty St. Louis. Wow. Calder is calling.
