RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Markstrom enters this season as Florida's goalie of the future, but is expected to start the 2012-2013 season in the AHL. The 6-foot-3 butterfly goalie has plenty of potential and could see himself with the big club sooner rather than later. In seven games played this past season, Markstrom was 2-4 with a 2.66 goals against average and a .905 save percentage. Markstrom is a top keeper option and a viable sleeper option should he play himself onto the roster with a strong showing in camp. Neither Scott Clemmensen or Jose Theodore have much upside remaining, making Markstrom the smart choice in keeper drafts.
Markstrom was Florida's second-round selection in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. Even though he will likely wind up spending most of his time backstopping for the Rochester Americans (AHL) this season, it's worth keeping tabs on Markstrom, as he is widely considered the Panthers' goalie of the future. Last season, the tall netminder (he's 6-foot-3) won the Elitserien Rookie of the Year award as a member of Bryanas IF of the Swedish Elite League. Based on his three-year, entry-level contract with the Panthers in June of 2010, it has become evident that this butterfly-style goalie is vastly approaching the NHL stage.
