Nate Prosser: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Prosser, an undrafted free agent from Colorado College, will be a reserve defensemen for the Wild. He's likely to sit most nights as he's down on the depth chart.
Even though he went undrafted, Prosser was able to bring an offensive touch to the blue line as a member of the Houston Aeros, Minnesota's primary minor league affiliate, in 2010-11. His numbers included eight goals and 19 assists in 31 regular season games, and he also gained valuable experience in the 2011 Calder Cup playoffs. Fantasy owners understandably love two-way defenders, and Prosser fits the description but his lack of NHL experience (five games) should be enough to keep him out of the fantasy spotlight this season.
The Minnesota native signed with the Wild as a free agent this summer. He played his college hockey at Colorado College, where he was second in WCHA defenseman in scoring with 28 points (4 G, 24 A). He impressed team officials this preseason, so although he'll probably start the season in the minors, they're expecting him to be called up at some point during the season. When or if that does happen, he won't do anything to contribute to your fantasy team.
