RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015-16

Subscribe now to see our 2015-16 outlook.

2014-15

One of last seasonís most surprising and vexing players, Gelinas showed flashes of offensive talent mixed in with tentativeness and spotty defensive zone play. His ability to contribute from the blue line was evident early during his 60-game tenure, as most of his 29 points came before the calendar hit 2014, save for two multi-point games. He has a booming slap shot and isnít shy about using it, but he found himself on a seemingly permanent shuttle between Newark and AHL Albany. Gelinas was often made an example of by coach Peter DeBoer, as the youngster was punished for small mistakes and saw his ice time severely limited in even-strength situations, even suiting up as a spare forward at times. Consistent ice time is far from guaranteed despite the obvious offensive upside. Should he be assured a regular role, look for his confidence to grow.

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.
