RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Niko Dimitrakos.
Dimitrakos will likely start the year with Ottawa's AHL affiliate in Binghamton. Because of his experience, he should be one of the few forwards that Ottawa calls up to replace any injured players. If he does get called up, Dimitrakos will not get first or second line minutes but could end up as part of an energy line.
Dimitrakos is your classic 3rd liner. He chips in with some points here and there and he plays a hard game. He should not be on your fantasy team.
Dimitrakos is still a work in progress as an offensive player; he had 24 points in 68 games back in 2003-04, occasionally seeing action on the team's first line. He does have the hands and offensive skills to be a producer of note, however, so keep him on your very deep sleeper list, depending on who he's skating with in October.
