Justin Falk: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Falk is a big (6-5, 220), stay-at-home defender who only gets noticed when he screws things up. That's a good thing because it means he's generally doing his job right. He won't wow you with hits or passes, and he occasionally emits a brain fart that causes havoc on the ice. But still, he's close to earning NHL ice time; it just remains to be seen if its this season or next.
Falk, who will turn 23 years old in October, is best viewed as organizational depth for the Wild. The 6-foot-5 bruiser had just three assists for his only points in 22 NHL games last season, and is likely to require more seasoning in the minors in 2011-12.
Falk will contend for a blue line job in training camp with the Wild. He'll likely spend much of the season in the AHL. He won't produce much offense, but did have 87 PIM in 69 games last year in the AHL.
