Marc Methot: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Methot is largely a defense-first defenseman who the Sens will pair with Erik Karlsson to complement Karlsson's offensive style. Methot won't put up huge point totals, but he could see a slight increase over his rate of 11 points in 47 games last season since playing with a healthy Karlsson for a full season should result in some extra opportunities. Overall, Methot is a solid defensive defenseman, as evidenced by his recent team Canada camp invite.
The 27-year-old Methot was acquired in the offseason from Columbus for forward Nick Foligno and will bring some much needed defensive help to Ottawa's backend. Methot will likely be given an early opportunity during training camp to be Erik Karlsson's defensive partner. He should provide a much-needed defensive presense to back up Karlsson when he switches into offensive mode. Methot is big and strong, and has good skating ability for a 6'3" frame. The Ottawa native could benefit offensively simply by playing with Karlsson on a regular basis, so 20-plus points isn't out of the question, making him a decent target late in deep leagues.
Methot has emerged as a reliable stay-at-home defenseman, and actually posted a positive plus/minus last season despite the miserable fortunes of the team around him in Columbus. The Jackets locked him up with a long-term deal, and while he's no fantasy threat he should continue to be a stabilizing presence on the Columbus blue line for a few years yet.
Stay-at-home defenseman managed 2-6-8 in 60 games last season.
Career-best 4-13-17 in 66 games last season after carving out a regular role on the Blue Jackets blue line.
Stay-at-home defenseman didn't look out of place in 20 NHL games last season. A good training camp probably earns him a top-six berth in Columbus.
