RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Cade Fairchild.
Fairchild was a four-year starter at the University of Minnesota where he showed a good mind for the offensive side of the game. The question is whether his size will play at the pro level. We're going to find out. Fairchild was part of the prospects contingent the Blues sent to the Traverse City tournament this offseason, so there's some interest to see how he develops.
Fairchild is expected to return to the University of Minnesota for his senior year in 2010-11. He's an offensive-minded defenseman, who led the Gophers' blue-liners in scoring and was fourth on the team while playing in all 39 games. The offensive skills are interesting, but the knock on him is his size and whether he can carry it off at the NHL level.
Fairchild has been steadily impressive since being drafted but will spend this season at the University of Minnesota with hopes of making it to the NHL in the near future.
