RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Derek Whitmore.
This player will have no fantasy value in 2013-14 and can be ignored in all formats.
Whitmore has to be elated at Buffalo's new AHL affiliation with Rochester. The native of Rochester inked a one-year deal with the Sabres in July, and will likely spend 2011-12 in his hometown.
Whitmore projects as a career minor-league player. The Bowling Green State product has 56 points (29 G, 27 A) in 155 games in Portland. The Sabres offered him a one-year contract in the summer, and he will hope to have a breakout season in Portland, or he may be looking for elsewhere for a team after this season.
Whitmore scored 27 goals and added 10 assists in 37 games last season for Bowling Green State University. He's a little undersized (5-11, 185) and not a top prospect. Whitmore likely needs at least a couple years of AHL seasoning.
