Ryan Callahan: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Callahan is a player whose fantasy prospects are on the rise after setting a career-high in goals (29) and matching a career-high in assists (25) last season. The Blueshirts' captain is still only 27-years old and will see plenty of time on the power play in 2012-13 as he serves on the second line with Derek Stepan and Carl Hagelin. Callahan should provide great mid-round value as he has a very real shot at topping the 30-goal plateau with Hagelin and Stepan continuing to mature their games. In leagues that reward secondary statistics such as blocked shots, plus-minus and hits, Callahan will reward owners handsomely, as he produces across the board in those categories.
Callahan set career-highs in goals (23), assists (25), power-play goals (10) and shorthanded points (7) and he did so despite missing 22 games to injuries, last season. Widely considered the most likely skater to inherit the captaincy role from former Ranger Chris Drury, Callahan plays with a reckless abandon, which feeds his effectiveness. However, being a smaller player does inflate his risk of injury, especially considering he was injured twice last season while blocking shots. Callahan is a solid depth player worth a mid-to-late draft pick in standard fantasy leagues and should push the 55-60 point mark in 2011-12. Where he really shines is in pools that are deep on secondary categories like hits, blocks, and shorthanded points.
Callahan regressed a little after scoring a career-high 22 goals two seasons ago. The gritty forward tallied just 19 goals and 37 points last year and took a major step back in the plus/minus category, finishing the season with a minus-12 rating. Almost half of Calliís goals came with the man advantage, as he ranked second on the team to Marian Gaborik with nine power play goals. Callahanís power play time might decrease a bit this upcoming season due to the arrival of Alex Frolov in New York, which makes the 24-year-old forward even less valuable in fantasy leagues. One thing Callahan has proved in his short NHL career is that he loves to shoot the puck. Two seasons ago he fired 237 shots on goal and last year he put up 204. Anticipate the shots to remain above 200, but donít expect Callahan to exceed 25 goals and 45 points. He did not require offseason surgery on his injured knee, and should be fine come training camp.
Callahan played in 81 games last year for the Rangers and flashed enough potential to get a major pay boost from the Rangers this offseason. With 22 goals and 18 assists, Callahan doesn't scream fantasy gold, but his production is expected to see a big boost with coach John Tortorella in town for a full season.
Callahan had eight goals and 13 points in 52 games for the Rangers last season. Byers is a good prospect who really needs to get his scoring working, so he'll have to polish off his offense in the AHL while the Rangers go with some other youngsters in the meantime to fill out their forward lines.
The coaching staff loves his grit and determination, and projects him as a top line forward at some point of his career. Until then, heíll start the season on the teamís third line, and will log power play minutes along with time on the penalty kill. Pay close attention to injury reports on this Blueshirt team, if anyone on the top lines were to get hurt, Callahan could be one of the first to get that call. Callahan was Hartford's (AHL) second leading scorer with 35 goals and 20 assists for 55 points in 60 games.
