RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Nolan Yonkman.
Yonkman is a physical defender with a hard shot from the point. The veteran defender has an outside chance of landing on the roster, rounding out the Panthers' final defensive pairing. However, being injury-prone and not blessed with great puck-handling abilities is keeping him from making a meaningful offensive impact heading into the 2012-2013 campaign.
Yonkman will battle in training camp for a roster spot with AHL affiliate Milwaukee.
Yonkman would have played for the Caps in each of the past few seasons if it hadn't been for injuries that have sidelined him over that period. If he can emerge from training camp healthy, he has a good chance of making the opening day roster.
