Matt Halischuk: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Halischuk took a major step forward last season, recording a career-high 28 points in 73 games. This is quite remarkable, considering he spent the majority of last season in a fourth-line checking role. Halischuk is a dependable two-way player and may have the talent to play a second-line position someday, but the Preds simply have too much depth on their forward lines for him to have much of a shot.
Halischuk was acquired from New Jersey as part of the Jason Arnott trade. Halischuk has battled injuries the last few seasons and probably projects more as a third- or fourth-line winger because of his lack of offensive potential. He does bring a tough, physical style though. He will likely open the season in the AHL with the Milwaukee Admirals.
A promising forward that can do some of the team's dirty work, Halischuk looked strong in 2009 training camp, but likely will spend most of the season in Lowell.
