RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Shawn Belle.
Belle was signed this off-season after playing two games for Montreal last season. He has played 11 total NHL games over the past five seasons but is ticketed for the AHL this season.
Belle is not entirely a lock to make the AHL roster, so the NHL is out of the question.
Belle at age 22 remains a prospect who may finally challenge for a NHL job this fall, but he struggled a bit at Houston last season with a minus-10 on the ice.
Belle will need to step up his game in the AHL if he's going to make the Wild anytime soon.
