RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

Byron is still recovering from the wrist surgery he underwent during the playoffs as well as a sports hernia procedure, but he hopes to be ready come training camp time. The winger doesn't provide much size (5-foot-7, 153 pounds) on the fourth line, but he has speed to burn and can contribute offensively once in a while. The Flames missed his speed against the bruising Ducks in the second round of the playoffs, and while he is unlikely to contribute enough to make noise on the fantasy side, he is a valuable cog in Calgary.

2014-15

The speedy center put up 21 points in 47 games last season despite not seeing all that much ice time throughout the year. Byron is on a one-way deal, so he is all but a lock to grab one of the bottom two center spots and give the Flames 20-30 points again.

2013-14

The majority of Byron's time in 2012-13 was spent in the AHL, where he put up 15 points and 38 penalty minutes in 38 games. He will begin the 2013-14 season in the AHL.

2011-12

Byron's a young forward likely to get every opportunity to prove himself after being a part of the Robyn Regehr trade and arriving in Calgary along with Chris Butler. Byron posted two points in eight NHL contests last year while notching 26 goals and 53 points in 67 AHL games. At 22, he's a young player with offensive upside, something the Flames need. Remember his name in keeper leagues.

2010-11

Byron had a phenomenal 2009-10 with Gatineau in the QMJHL, scoring 33 goals and tallying 66 assists in only 64 games. He should join Portland for the 2010-11 season. The Sabres have shown that they won't hesitate to reward the young, talented forwards that they have down on the farm with a call up if the big club needs a boost.

2009-10

At only 5-8 and 135 pounds, Byron will have his work cut out for him in his first season in the AHL. Although he led his junior team the Gatineau Olympiques in scoring with 99 points (33G, 66A), the AHL is a different breed of play with a lot bigger bodies. It will probably be a while before we see Byron in the NHL, especially with other small prospects Nathan Gerbe and Tyler Ennis ahead of him in the ranks.
