Chris Thorburn: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Averaging 89 penalty minutes per season since the 2007-08 campaign, Thorburn has established himself as one of the main fighters on a team that doesn't fight very much. With few superstars to protect on the ice, the 29-year old Ontario native is an enforcer who does little enforcing, and as such, presents very limited fantasy upside.
Thorburn posted a career-high 19 points last season (9 goals, 10 assists). He is a checking forward. He has just over 60 points combined in four NHL seasons and is more of a scrapper than a consistent offensive contributor. He is not worth pursuing from in your fantasy draft.
Thorburn finished with 18 points (5G, 13A) in 2007-08 with the Thrash last season. He will likely play on the fourth line again this year and won't see much ice-time. Look for Thorburn to produce about the same amount of offense this year.
The 6-foot-3, 210-pound Thorburn had three goals, two assists and 69 PIM's in 39 games with the Penguins last season. Thorburn, with help from Eric Boulton, will be the physical presence on the Thrashers. Atlanta doesn't have many players with Thorburn's "skills" so he'll get some playing time but not enough to help out any fantasy teams...even ones that have a goon category.
Thornburn only played two games in 2005-06, and with Buffalo having more than enough forwards, he will probably spend much of 2006-07 in the minors. He was drafted back in 2001, so he's running out of time to make his mark.
