RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Acquired in the Martin Erat trade, Latta is a depth forward with little fantasy value outside of leagues that reward PIM. Latta had 38 points and 198 PIM in 76 AHL games last season. He will be given every chance to make the team as an enforcer but will likely shuttle back and forth between Washington and Hershey (AHL) this year.
In 2009-10, his first full season with the OHL's Guelph Storm, Latta scored 73 points (33G, 40A) in 58 games, and added 157 PIMs. Overall, Latta is a smallish forward but plays much bigger than his 5'11' frame would suggest. He's not afraid to get his nose dirty by digging in the corners and going hard to the net. What he lacks in pure skill he more than makes up in hustle and heart. Latta will likely make the jump to Milwaukee for the 2010-2011 season, but is not expected to see any time at the NHL level.
