2014-15 Fantasy Hockey Outlook

Eakin is certainly not lacking in potential. But Dallas' addition of Jason Spezza means that Eakin will spend most of this season in a third-line role. Dallas' third line is no lame-duck checking line, though -- they can score. Eakin figures to start the season with former 3...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Acquired for Mike Ribeiro in the summer of 2012, Eakin managed seven goals and 17 assists in 48 games last year as the second-line center, far exceeding even the most optimistic of projections. He could end up sliding back down to the third line with the offseason arrivals of Rich Peverley and Shawn Horcoff, so temper your expectations a bit. Dallas' scoring just doesn't go deep enough to yield a ton of value outside the top six.

2012-13

Eakin projects as a nice checking center, something the Stars need after Vern Fiddler struggled in that role last season. He's not going to contribute much on the stat sheet and is unlikely to take over the second-line center duties when Derek Roy is sidelined to begin the season (Roy is expected to be out until early November).

2011-12

Eakin played in the WHL last season and amassed 83 points during the season. Just under six-foot, the young center shows the skill to someday make it to the NHL level. A few factors come into play when assessing when he could make it, and weighing those it figures to be a few years away before he gets a shot.

2010-11

Eakin was part of Ahl Hershey's run to the 2010 Calder Cup championship. A third round pick last year, he was named the rookie of the year in the WHL. The young center looks like he may have a chance at making it to the NHL, but will probably be a year or two before he gets a shot.
