2013-14 Fantasy Hockey Outlook

Gorges had nine points (2 goals, 7 assists) in 48 games for the Canadiens in 2012-13, but we know by now, scoring isn't what makes him valuable. It's his leadership and penchant for blocking shots. He led Montreal with 116 blocked shots (seventh in NHL). He'll occupy a spot...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Subscribe now to see our 2013-14 outlook.

2012-13

Gorges, who entered the 2011-12 season rehabbing offseason knee surgery, proved to the Canadiens the knee was sound, so they wasted little time inking the pending unrestricted free agent to a six-year deal in January 2012. That should tell you all you need to know about how much the team values him. Playing in all 82 games in two of the last three seasons, Gorges is a stay-at-home type that is a constant on the penalty kill and blocks a ton of shots. While recording 16 points, he led the team with a plus-14 and will play major minutes on the first defensive pairing.

2011-12

Gorges suffered a right knee injury that required reconstructive surgery and limited him to 36 games in 2010-11. Despite the serious injury, the Canadiens re-signed him in the offseason to a one-year deal. He’s not afraid to get in front of pucks, having averaged two blocked shots per game in his three seasons in Montreal. He’ll skate on one of the top two pairings in what will be a contract year before becoming an unrestricted free agent next summer.

2010-11

Gorges is currently battling with P.K. Subban for the first line right blue liner slot next to Andrei Markov. Gorges has shown great durability the past two seasons playing in 82 games last year and 81 the season prior. It is going to be very hard to keep Subban off the front line but Gorges should be no worse the second on the depth chart and will provide good puck handling and stellar defensive play.

2009-10

Gorges may have been the steadiest player on the Canadiens’ roster in 2008-09. The defenseman, playing with top blue-liner Andrei Markov much of the season, posted career-highs in games played (81), goals (4), assists (19), points (23), plus-minus (plus-12), and penalty minutes (37) in his fourth season, and second full season in Montreal, last year. His plus-minus and blocked shot tallies led the team in ’08-’09, while his goal, assist, and point totals more than doubled his previous career-highs. Barring injury, Gorges should get as much playing time as last year, and should be able to at least match his numbers from last season.

2008-09

Gorges came virtually out of nowhere to become a key member to the Canadiens defensive corps last season. However, with just nine assists, Gorges has yet to establish any roto credence in the Bigs. Gorges will play with Francis Bouillon on the Canadiens' third defensive pairing this season and may see limited minutes on the second power play unit. Still, we'd stay away from drafting him unles you're in a 40-team league.

2007-08

Gorges is a fringe NHL defenseman and strictly a depth player with little skill offensively.

2006-07

He's not guaranteed a spot in the final rotation, and even if Gorges gets on the ice, he's a defense-first type all the way. The Sharks have guys who can move the puck, so Gorges probably won't see time on the power play.
