RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Alzner was a workhorse once again last season (20:57 TOI), playing in all 48 games of the lockout shortened season. Alzner had just five points on the season, which is consistent with his two full regular seasons prior to last year, although the drop to a minus-6 was surprising. He will continue to log serious minutes for the Capitals but fantasy managers shouldn’t expect much help from Alzner.

2012-13

Alzner is developing into a reliable stalwart on the Washington blue line. He's played all 82 games in each of the last two seasons, posting a career-high 17 points last season. He's not going to contribute too much defensively, but he's a valuable piece to Washington's team success.

2011-12

Alzner has become the shutdown defenseman the brass thought he would be when he was taken 5th overall in 2007. He just signed a new contract as his entry-level deal was up. He has the potential to put up 20 plus points, but being paired with John Carlson he takes a backseat to his offensively skilled teammate. Do not expect great offensive output, but you can expect around 100 blocks, 100 hits, and 60 plus shots.

2010-11

The 6-foot-2, 21-year-old defenseman showed his ability and why he deserved to be a first-round pick in 2007. Alzner is one of two young defenseman the team has molded and he should be on the Opening Night roster this season. He has great mobility and the ability to produce offensively. He also collected much needed experience after playing in 21 games Washington and should be a steady blueliner for years to come. We suggest that he will play a role this coming season and can very well become a breakout fantasy producer.

2009-10

Alzner is an up-and-coming star, and will probably be seen in more games this year than last. He is a young defenseman with great size and skill and played in 30 games last year. Look for Alzner to be a huge part of this defense in the next few years.

2008-09

The 6-foot-2, 19 year old defenseman was the fifth overall pick in the 2007 Entry Draft. He was named the Western Hockey League's Player and Defenseman of the Year for 2007-08. He registered 36 points in 60 games with the Calgary Hitmen. Many scouts believed Alzner was the most NHL ready player in the draft. He has great mobility and has the ability to be a good offensive producer. He is one of, if not their top prospect, and has a good chance of making the team, with the concussion situation Brian Pothier is suffering. We suggest to keep an eye on him throughout the season, especially if he cracks the roster.

2007-08

Alzner is a reliable, steady defender who has displayed offensive talent at the junior level. He projects as a shutdown, power-type defender in the NHL who'll be steady and pretty much unspectacular. He'll be better on the ice than in the fantasy arena, and is still a few years away from the NHL.

2006-07

Alzner is one of those guys you'd want your little sister to date. Steady, unspectacular and reliable, he's not going to do something stupid; in fact, he's probably the safest pick in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. Fantasy owners should not be confused by his 47-point season in the WHL. Alzner will eventually be a 25 to 30 minute defender who'll be used against the opposition's best line. But he isn't going to hit the 30-point mark very often, if ever.
