RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Prust had 14 points and led the Canadiens with 110 minutes in penalties in 38 games in 2012-13. There were stretches of time when Prust may have been the most impactful player on the roster, using his physicality to influence games and earning the admiration of the Bell Centre faithful. He played through several injuries. Initially, he was the steadying influence while centering a line with rookies Brendan Gallagher and Alex Galchenyuk. When the youngsters had grown enough to fly on their own, Prust was the sandpaper in Montreal's lineup. He'll continue in a similar role this coming season.

2012-13

Prust was signed to a four-year deal in the offseason to essentially make the Canadiens a tougher fight on any given night. He offers some skill from the fourth line and has experience on the penalty kill, but his calling card is that of an enforcer, a role he filled with aplomb during his tenure with the Rangers. Prust's bigggest contribution for fantasy teams will be his penalty minutes (156 PIMs in 2011-12), but his presence on the roster will change more than just the culture on this team, but it will also alter the perceptions of opponents playing the Canadiens.

2011-12

After trying to scratch out a spot on the Flames as an enforcer, Prust ended up coming to the Rangers and carving out a role as an effective defensive forward. He paired with Brian Boyle as a penalty killer on the fourth line with a little bit of a unexpected scoring to boot. Prust's fantasy value primarily lies within deep roster and categorical leagues, where he's a small blip on the radar with his PIMs, hits and shorthanded points.

2010-11

The left winger played 26 games for the Rangers last season. He tallied nine points (4 G, 5 A) and 65 PIM. Acquired by New York from Calgary in the Olli Jokinen trade, Prust was brought over to add some toughness to the team. He ranked third in 2009-10 with 25 fighting majors. Unfortunately, it’s hard to determine how Prust will do with a full season in New York. Coach John Tortorella doesn’t like his team to be in the penalty box, which is where the 26-year-old tough guy spends most of his time. More than likely, Prust won’t make any significant fantasy contributions to your team in 2010-11.

2009-10

Prust returns to the Flames after a late season trade to the Phoenix Coyotes last year. He will not provide much in the way of points but he can rack up the penalty minutes. If you see that he is spending a lot of time in the sin bin then he may be a good add midseason to provide help in the penalty minutes department but don't expect much else.

2008-09

Prust scored 37 points in 79 games with AHL Quad City last season, but the more important stat was his 248 PIM. With Eric Godard gone, expect Prust to see a decent amount of time with the Flames this year. If he finds his way into the starting lineup every night, he could be a decent pickup for those who really need penalty minutes.

2007-08

Prust spent a fair amount of time with the Flames last season, amassing 25 penalty minutes in 10 games. The Flames' fourth line is muddled at the moment, so he could get a shot at cracking the Calgary lineup in the preseason. Don't expect him for much scoring, but he will get you a penalty minute or two if he makes the team.
