RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Pateryn spent much of his first professional season in the AHL for the Hamilton Bulldogs, but also had a brief callup to the NHL. Not known for his offensive contributions, Pateryn scored seven goals in 39 games for Hamilton. That's more than he scored in four years at the University of Michigan. He's a big body on the blueline and uses that body well against opponents, something the organization needs more of at the NHL level. He'll return to Hamilton this season, but he's part of the next wave of defenseman in Montreal.
Pateryn will return to the University of Michigan for his senior season. He showed some offensive touch in 2010-11, but his calling card is his 6-3, 214-pound frame. He plays physical and uses his body well when matching up against forwards and delivering checks.
