RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Ville Nieminen.
A hustler and energy player, but there's not enough offensive talent to give him a spot on the top two lines. Unless your pool is jumbo sized, you need to shoot for a higher upside.
Signed to add competition to training camp, Nieminen is a journeyman veteran that has played on the Avs, Penguins, Flames and Blackhawks. If Nieminen makes the Rangers roster this season, his role is somewhat unclear at the moment; however donít expect anything more than a third or fourth-line cog that will occasionally get a DNP.
