RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

Although his 55 points last year ranked as Voracek’s third-highest season total and he cleared 20 power-play points for the third straight year, it was still a trying campaign. Typically a consistent 20-goal scorer, the Czech winger took five weeks to score his first goal, then another month until his second; he ended up with only 11. But after struggling to just 15 points in his first 29 games, Voracek turned on the jets for the remainder of the season – 40 points in 44 games, though he was mostly silenced in the Flyers’ first-round playoff loss to Washington. All things equal, the down year can be chalked up to rough luck and the Flyers’ collective early-season struggles; a rebound in Voracek’s shooting percentage to career norms should bring with it a return of ‘Scoracek.’

2015-16

After breaking out for 62 points in 2013-14, Voracek set the NHL ablaze this past season, finishing fourth in the NHL scoring race with 81 points. The 25-year-old was a consistent fantasy force, notching 59 assists, 11 power-play goals, and 78 PIM -- all career highs. Though it may be difficult to imagine Voracek topping himself again in 2015-16, it's not inconceivable by any means. Along with having youth on his side and a spot on a top power-play unit flush with playmakers, Voracek hasn't missed a game in the last three years and also shot a rather sustainable 10 percent last season, right in line with his career mark. Those things combine to give the winger an extremely high floor. If your leaguemates are skeptical that last season's 81-point showing is the new normal for Voracek, take advantage of the reduced price tag and make him a cornerstone of your fantasy roster.

2014-15

After a number of successively better seasons, Voracek appears to be finally ready to take the leap into the league’s elite group of wingers. Following a phenomenal strike-shortened season where he scored at almost a point-per-game pace, his 2013-2014 season started with a whimper, just like most of his Flyer mates. Once the team was back on track, Voracek's game also took off. Barring a similar collapse this season, it seems natural that he will eclipse his career records in most offensive categories this year. Plan on a 70-point season and draft him accordingly.

2013-14

Voracek had impressive numbers in the shortened season, netting 22 goals and collecting 24 assists. The 23-year-old winger was the Flyers' leading scorer and MVP. He's missed very little time due to injury, and given last season's maturation, he could post similar or better numbers this year. He's worth a look in the early-rounds of most drafts.

2012-13

Voracek has consistently posted between 45 and 50 points for the last three years. After arriving in Philadelphia via the Jeff Carter trade, Voracek also managed a career high plus-11 and ten points in 11 playoff games. Voracek is a solid, healthy winger with potential that ne never quite seems to reach. He recently signed a contract extension with Philadelphia and he could crack 20 goals and 50 points this season. It feels like he's been in the league for years, but Voracek turned 23 in August and will be entering his fifth NHL season.

2011-12

Voracek, a former Blue Jacket who was part of the Jeff Carter trade, arrives in Philadelphia with plenty of upside. He's joining one of the NHL's top-scoring teams and will be skating on the first line, presumably with Scott Hartnell and Daniel Briere. Eclipsing his career-high of 50 points should be an attainable feat for the 21-year-old in 2011-12.

2010-11

Voracek took another step forward as a sophomore, scoring 16 goals and 50 points and establishing himself as an essential top-six forward in Columbus. He's got pretty much the entire package going for him: good size, strength, speed and skill, and he leaves everything he's got on the ice. He roared out of the Olympic break last season with seven goals and 15 points in 13 games. While he'll be hard-pressed to maintain that pace on the Blue Jackets' second line, 25+ goals and 60+ points should be well within his grasp, and the possibility for a much bigger breakout is there, especially if new coach Scott Arniel takes Ken Hitchcock's shackles off the offense.

2009-10

Lost in the noise of Derick's Brassard's hot start and Steve Mason's season for the ages, Voracek quietly went out and had a solid rookie season of his own. Without ever getting much of a look on a scoring line he still managed 38 points in 80 games, and his nine goals provide just a hint of what he's capable of going forward. Voracek has an enviable combination of skill, smarts and heart that peg him as a future force at both ends of the rink, and if he spends a good part of the season on the Blue Jackets's second line with Antoine Vermette and R.J. Umberger he should be able to reach the 15-goal, 50-point plateau as a sophomore.

2008-09

Name a skill you’d want in an NHL forward, and Voracek has it in his arsenal. He’s fast, skilled and physical, plays both ways, and showed this offseason that even at 19 he understands what it’ll take for him to succeed, putting on over 20 pounds of muscle to better withstand the rigors of an NHL campaign. With Derick Brassard likely to be given some sort of chance to center the Rick Nash line coach Hitchcock may not want to saddle his captain with two rookies, but Voracek’s skill set would seem to make him an ideal complement on the opposite wing from Nash. Opportunity alone is all that’s standing between Voracek and a Calder Trophy-caliber season.

2007-08

The club’s first round pick (seventh overall) in the 2007 draft, Voracek has an enviable blend of skill and strength that allowed him to lead Halifax, his QMJHL squad, in scoring with 86 points in 59 games in his first season of exposure to North American hockey. Voracek then took his game to another level in the QMJHL playoffs, ringing up 24 points in just 12 games. Although he just turned 18 and will likely spend one more year honing his abilities in the junior ranks, a good showing in training camp could encourage the Blue Jackets to give him an NHL trial.

2006-07

Voracek is pro ready despite his tender age. This tough winger impressed scouts by making the move from the Czech Republic to the QMJHL for 2006-2007 and once on North American soil, he never looked back. He started the season with a flourish and ended with 86 points in 59 games and the Q's top offensive rookie award. He has a take-no-prisoners attitude when driving the net and his shot could knock down a wall. Mr Clutch will make it to the NHL a lot sooner than the other top guys in his draft class and will have a solid future as a go-to leader before long. His offensive ceiling isn't quite as high as a Patrick Kane, Kyle Turris or Alexei Cherepanov, but he's going to deliver none-the-less.
