Stars GM Jim Nill suggested Goligoski, who missed last Saturday's season finale with an undisclosed injury, should be good to go heading into the offseason. "Goligoski, as far as we know, is OK," Nill said. "He was hurt very early in the season; he had some broken bones. First two months never practiced because he couldnít, but he played all the games."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Despite being largely perceived as a disappointment, Goligoski narrowly missed finishing last year in the top 10 list of scoring defenders with 27 points in 47 games. Add three more points to his season total and he would have moved up to fourth on that list. Still, he didn't cash in once with the man advantage despite getting regular time on the top power-play unit, continuing a career-long frustration with the man advantage (his career high is a mere seven PPG). He has been a 45 to 50 point defenseman in two of the past three years (projecting last year's total over a full season), so there's definitely some value here.

2012-13

Goligoski quarterbacked one of the historically-worst power plays in NHL history, so it's not hard to see why his point production was pretty pedestrian at last season's end. He tallied just 30 points in 71 games, missing some time early in the year with a broken hand. He figures to benefit greatly from Dallas' infusion of talent -- albeit age -- to the top six forwards over the summer, and looks to be one of the better rebound candidates from the blue line.

2011-12

Goligoski provided everything Dallas was looking for after being acquired for James Neal mid-season, racking up 15 points in 23 games and providing the type of puck movement that was missing from the Dallas tail gunners since Sergei Zubov's departure. His overall numbers (14-32-46 in 83 games, with 11 power-play goals) place him among the better options from the blue line and he averaged a monstrous 26 minutes of ice time during his stint with Dallas. He'll be leaned on heavily again this season.

2010-11

Goligoski opened 2009-10 with a bang and finished with a flurry, but the five months in between left fantasy owners wanting more from the offensive blueliner. The rookie collected 12 points (5, 7) in 14 October contests but never totaled more than seven points in any other month. His early start featured a 26.3 shooting percentage that dropped to 8.7 percent by seasonís end. A pinpoint passer, Goligoski looks to improve on defense, an area that brought down his overall game. The addition of veteran defenders Paul Martin and Zbynek Michalek takes a ton of pressure off of the 25-year-old. At this point in Goligoskiís career, he appears to be a streaky player that can put points up in a hurry or disappear off of the scoring chart for weeks at a time. The potential is there, and a reduction in overall minutes (due to the defensive acquisitions) might actually make it easier for Goligoski to focus on offense and improve upon his fantasy numbers of 37 points in 69 contests.

2009-10

Somewhat surprisingly, the Penguins gave Goligoski a three-year deal worth $5 million in the offseason, even though he hasn't really proven himself at the NHL level. "Go-Go" tallied 20 points (6, 14) in 45 games with Pittsburgh last year. His hands are as smooth as a baby's bottom and he should shed his fear of taking shots with greater experience. His 9.6 shooting percent might fall as his minutes go up, but he acted as a designated power-play specialist in 2008-09. This year Pittsburgh is counting on him as a top-six blueliner. Unfortunately, his defensive skills sometime seem as soft as his hands, but the team has few other options. Goligoski will likely go through some rough patches, but his offensive potential and playing opportunity make him more than a worthwhile fantasy pick.

2008-09

Goligoski will simply be happy with a regular shift on Pittsburgh's blue line. The 23-year-old registered 38 points (10, 28) in 70 AHL regular season games and then led the Baby Pens with 28 points (4, 24) in 24 playoff games. Goligoski is perhaps Pittsburgh's biggest wild card heading into training camp. Does he play his way onto the team or find himself shipped off to Wilkes-Barre? Most likely Goligoski will re-appear as a mid-season callup due to injuries or trades on the blue line.

2007-08

The Minnesota Golden Gophers' MVP last year, Goligoski underwent shoulder surgery during the offseason and will likely begin his professional career sometime in November at the AHL level. He's another skilled offensive defenseman (39 points in 44 games for the Gophers) within the organization who features a right-handed shot. Goligoski, 22, had another year of college eligibility but elected to turn pro. He should be specifically targeted in keeper fantasy leagues.

2006-07

Goligoski will continue his promising collegiate career in 2006. He finished with 39 points (11,28) in 41 games at Minnesota last year.

2005-06

Goligoski will play his sophomore season of collegiate hockey for the University of Minnesota. He appeared in seven games with Team USA at 2005 World Junior Championships, recording one assist, showing signs of his future potential within the organization.
