RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Okposo had a terribly disappointing regular season for the Islanders, scoring only four goals in 48 games. His name was rumored to be on the block at the trade deadline, letting you know how far his stock had fallen. What makes matters even worse was that he started the season playing on the top line with John Tavares and Matt Moulson but was removed for questionable play. Now the good news. The playoffs seemed to light a spark under Okposo as he netted three goals in six games. The Isles will be hoping he will use that as a springboard to the 2013-14 season as he will play on a line with Josh Bailey and either Frans Nielsen or Ryan Strome.

2012-13

After essentially missing all of the 2010-11 season due to injury, Okposo came back to have his best season in the NHL with 24 goals and 45 points. The production did come at a price however as his plus-minus took a beating. Okposo is a solid player who is more than likely ticketed for second line duty once again. This could be a good thing as he can relax and play his game rather than try to live up to the expectations of being a first round pick and playing on the top line, as it's starting to look like he might not be suited for that role.

2011-12

The Islanders signed Okposo to a five-year contract in May, signaling that the club still expects big things from the former No. 1 pick. He missed half of last season with a shoulder injury, but only managed five goals in the 38 games he did play. Okposo has also never scored more than 19 goals in a season and has been somewhat of a disappointment. The Islanders do have more talent now and perhaps playing with better linemates will allow Okposo more freedom to find the back of the net.

2010-11

Okposo is another former first-round pick (2007) that the Islanders are relying on to bring the organization back to respectability. Okposo had his best season to date in 2009-10 with 19 goals, 33 assists, and 249 shots. The Islanders are slowly but surely building a solid team by using the draft to restock their system. This should pay off eventually but it may not be this season for fantasy owners. Still, expect Okposo's production to slowly climb even while the rebuilding process is taking place.

2009-10

Okposo had some ups and downs in his rookie year. He came out of the gate slow with five points in the first 20 games and seemed very timid at times. He gained confidence as the season progressed and had a strong finish with 16 points over the final 14 games. He was eighth in rookie scoring with 39 points, but first on the Isles in goals (18). He also wound up second in points and power-play goals (9), and third in shots on goal (165). He has enough talent and character to avoid the proverbial sophomore slump, so that should not be a problem in 2009-10. Expect him to crack the 20-goal barrier and pad his overall point total as well.

2008-09

The future of the Islanders begins with Okposo, the top prospect in the organization. He has everything the team lacks: skating ability, scoring ability and toughness. He left the University of Minnesota and had a brief introduction to professional hockey, scoring a respectable 28 points in 35 games with Bridgeport. He also had a nine-game audition with the Isles (five points). Keep in mind that there’s always an adjustment period to the quality of play in the NHL, and that at some point rookies almost always hit the proverbial wall. Regardless, he’s a high-character kid who seems hungry to be successful in this league. Those in keeper leagues need to be mindful of him on draft day.

2007-08

Okposo is clearly the Islanders' number one prospect right now. He had a fantastic freshman season at the University of Minnesota with 39 points in 38 games. Okposo works hard along the boards, is a fantastic stick handler, and has pretty good size at 6-0 and 200 pounds. Okposo will likely return to Minnesota for his sophomore season, but if the Islanders are worried about their offense this year, they should seriously consider giving him a roster spot if he appears ready in training camp.

2006-07

Will attend the University of Minnesota in the Fall.

2005-06

Okposo is a competitor who escalated his draft stock significantly in 2005-06. He won the USHL's rookie-of-the-year award with Des Moines, and is headed to the University of Minnesota in 2006-07. When you watch him play, you'll immediately recognize the power-prowess combination that makes a guy like Jarome Iginla so successful. Time will tell if he can develop that game in the NHL but he's probably the winger with the highest overall ceiling in the 2006 draft class.
