RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Evan Oberg.
Oberg showed promise in his first stint with Manitoba of the AHL, finishing with 26 points (3 G, 23 A) in 70 games. He had a two-game stint with the Canucks in 2009-10 and appears to be in the teamís plans for the future. Unfortunately for the 22-year-old blueliner, it doesnít look like the Canucks will have room for him in 2010-11 after the team retooled their back end through trades and free agency.
Oberg signed with the Canucks in 2009 after totaling 27 points in 43 games during his sophomore season with Minnesota-Duluth. He possesses solid puck-moving skills which could one day lead to quarterbacking the Canucks' power play. For now, though, the 21-year-old will spend a season or two developing in the Canucks' farm system.
