RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
O'Relly's promising 2010-11 season was cut short in January when he sustained a broken fibula during a game against the Blue Jackets. At the time, he was seeing a more prominent role on the team filling in for the injured Matthew Lombardi on the team's top line, and had 18 points (6G, 12A) in 38 games. This season, O'Reilly is more likely to settle into the No. 3 center spot behind Mike Fisher and David Legwand, so be sure to adjust your fantasy expectations accordingly.
Cal has spent the majority of the past five seasons with AHL Milwaukee, but did see 31 games for the Preds in a callup role last year, registering 11 points (2G, 9A). O'Reilly plays more of a checking-line role whenever he's needed, so his fantasy appeal is somewhat limited.
