RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Gelinas is one of several young defensemen in the Devils' system who has a shot at making the club out of training camp. He has a booming shot from the point and a bit more flair to his offensive game than most of the team's defensemen, but the question is how will he play defensively. Odds are Gelinas will spend some time in the AHL this season but he's a name worth remembering

2012-13

In his first professional season, Gelinas grabbed a solid 37 points in 75 games with Albany (AHL) to go with 55 penalty minutes. The Devils are not the deepest team on the blue line, with several indistinguishable candidates vying for the final two spots, but Gelinas could have a future role with the club, as the Devils are, and seemingly have always been, in desperate need of a puck-moving defender or two.

2011-12

Gelinas posted 20 points (3 G, 17 A) in 27 games for the Saint John Sea Dogs of the QMJHL in 2010-11, though he's behind several players in the New Jersey system, making him a non-factor in fantasy land ahead of the 2011-12 season.

2010-11

Gelinas is a talented youngster and stuck around for several rounds of roster cuts in training camp. He will play this season in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and has the potential for a bright NHL career.
