RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Subscribe now to see our 2013-14 outlook.

2012-13

Hackett ended his first NHL season with a string of starts that saw him post a 1-6 record over seven appearances in late March. Don't be fooled by that, though -- the skills are there, but the luck just wasn't. Hackett bounced between Houston (AHL) and Minnesota last year, and figures to be in a similar situation again this season. He's at the top of the prospect food chain and has more upside than any of the Wild’s other netminders. But his role is poorly defined -- who knows when he'll make the team as the back-up. But still, Minny starter Niklas Backstrom has become injury prone and Josh Harding has also been less than healthy at times. Hackett’s worth a look in keeper leagues or stashing away as an insurance policy for the inevitable.

2011-12

Upon completing parts of four seasons between the Windsor Spitfires and Plymouth Whalers of the OHL, Hackett turned pro in 2010-11 with AHL Houston, Minnesota's minor league affiliate. His rookie AHL campaign included a .916 save percentage, 2.37 goals-against average, and a record of 23-16-4. Hackett was drafted – third round, No. 77 overall – as recently as 2009, so it might be a few years before he ascends to the big stage of the NHL.

2010-11

This third round pick in 2009 put up great numbers for the Plymouth Whalers (OHL) in 2008-2009. He started the season as a backup but ended the season as the team’s top goalie, posting a 34-15-3 record to go along with a 3.04 GAA.
