RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Patrick Mullen.
Mullen inked a one-year, two-way deal with the Canucks this summer. After two ho-hum years in the minors, Mullen put together a solid campaign for Manchester of the AHL last season, finishing with 41 points (13 G, 28 A) in 69 games. Despite the uptick in offensive production, Mullen is known more for being a high-energy, two-way defensive player than an offensive force. He’ll provide the Canucks’ organization with additional blue line depth this season, but he’s expected to spend most of his time in the minors.
Mullen's a steadying force on the blueline and can play forward in a pinch but doesn't do much to help your fantasy squad. His contract with the Kings is up but he figures to latch on as organizational depth somewhere after a 20 point (3 G, 17 A) season in the AHL.
Mullen made his pro debut in the AHL after completing his career at the University of Denver. He tallied just 10 points in 44 games for the Monarchs and will need to do much more than that if he's to get noticed in a Kings organization that is loaded with blueline prospects.
He'll be nothing more than organizational depth after netting four goals in 38 games for the University of Denver.
