RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Oscar Moller.
Moller split time between the Kings and AHL last year but never found his game at the NHL level, tallying just seven points in 34 games. He'll likely be back in a similar role again this year as he tries to work his way into a nightly role with the Kings. If not, he'll be better served taking regular shifts down in the AHL.
Moller earned a spot in training camp last year and while his overall numbers (7 G, 8 A in 40 games) disappointed it was still a pretty nice debut for the kid. He never really recovered from a shoulder injury sustained in the World Juniors but he'll battle for a spot on the Kings' top two lines in training camp. Don't be suprised if he starts the season in the AHL though before earning a regular spot later in the season.
Moller is a talented offensive forward from Sweden who has had little trouble adjusting to the North American game. He has another year of junior eligibility remaining and figures to head back to the WHL to try and improve on his 83 point effort from a year ago. He's one to watch.
Moller is a rarity. He left his home in Sweden as a ruddy-faced teen and moved to Western Canada to ply his trade. And he sure didn't have any issues adjusting to the Canadian game. He scored at a point-per-game pace for a very bad team, and he demonstrated a two-way consciousness that lends itself well to a solid NHL career. Yes, he can dangle but that won't be his game. Steady, steady, steady -- he'll top out on the second line.
