Andrew Bodnarchuk: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Andrew Bodnarchuk.
Bodnarchuk signed a one-year deal with the Kings after spending last year with the Bruins' AHL affiliate in Providence. He'll give the team some organizational depth on the blue line, but he doesn't figure to make much of an impact with the Kings this season and is likely headed back to the AHL to start the season.
With just one goal and 16 points for AHL Providence this past season in 75 games, there's not a ton of buzz surrounding Bodnarchuk's fantasy prospects at the NHL level. He does project as a puck-moving blueliner, but there's a bit of a logjam in terms of blueline prospects in the B's organization and Bodnarchuk will need to have a strong camp to distinguish himself enough to stick with the big club.
Bodnarchuk, who appeared in five games with Boston this past season, will reprise his role a depth blueliner/potentail injury call-up for the Bruins in 2010-11.
Bodnarchuk's size (5-11, 193) is a concern for some, but he's a puck-mover, whose upside down the road is that of a solid top-four defenseman, who could help on the power-play.
Lack of size is the knock against Bodnarchuk, but he has upside as a puck-moving blueliner if he can adjust well to the physicality of the pros. Look for him to get his firs pro action with AHL Providence out of the gate.
