2014-15 Fantasy Hockey Outlook

Mitchell signed with Florida coming off his second Stanley Cup win with the Kings. He is a veteran defensive presence for the young Panthers and his biggest fantasy contribution may be helping out goaltender Roberto Luongo. Mitchell had just 12 points in 76 games in 2013-14,...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Mitchell missed the entire 2012-13 season with a knee injury, but the Kings are counting on him to return to his familiar shutdown role this year given the departure of Rod Scuderi via free agency. He's a far more important player to the Kings than what he provides to fantasy squads, so the Kings certainly hope to have him back to full strength when training camp opens.

2012-13

Mitchell had a career high 24 points last year as a 35-year old, but that's not what the Kings inked him to a two-year extension to provide. He eats up a ton of minutes and is an integral part of their penalty kill. He'll be back as an important part of their defensive corps again assuming he can avoid the nagging injuries.

2011-12

Mitchell was limited to just 57 games in his first season with the Kings thanks to a wrist and lower-body injury, but figures to be a nightly fixture on the blue line when healthy this season. He's a reliable, steady presence but doesn't do much from a fantasy perspective, failing to post more than 12 points in each of the last two years. He'll top out around 20 points if he can stay healthy.

2010-11

Mitchell inked a deal with the Kings in August and should give the team a veteran defensive presence on the blueline. He won't provide much of a fantasy impact however and will be lucky to register 20 points.

2009-10

As the Canucks' longest tenured player, Mitchell put together a career-best campaign in 2008-09, totaling 23 points (3 goals, 20 assists) with a 29 plus/minus rating. He'll once again be a locker room leader for a young club, but newfound depth on Vancouver's back end should cut into his minutes again, making it unlikely for the 32-year-old to repeat last season's performance.

2008-09

The 31-year-old defenseman is in the running to be named team captain, but a "C" on the sweater doesn't mean a player is fantasy worthy. In two seasons with the Canucks, Mitchell has tallied three goals and 20 assists in 134 games. The best bet would be to find a higher scoring backend option.

2007-08

Mitchell is more known for his defensive prowess than offensive flair. He has the ability to create opportunities for his teammates, but leaves that job to others on the team better suited to it. Though limited in regards to fantasy value, Mitchell is invaluable to his NHL team.

2006-07

Mitchell isn't on the ice to score points, so anything he adds to the scoresheet is a bonus. He will rack up the PIMs and is valued to his team in all those intangible categories fantasy teams ignore.

2005-06

He'll continue to anchor the blue line for the Wild, but doesn't offer much scoring for fantasy purposes.
