RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Volpatti is a fourth-liner for the Caps who came over from the Canucks halfway through the seson and was surprisingly re-signed by the Caps during the offseason. Volpatti saw 33 games but earned just one point on one assist in 2012-2013. Volpatti has no fantasy value.
Volpatti was limited to 23 games with the Canucks last season after suffering a torn labrum in his shoulder in December 2011. When healthy, Volpatti played a fourth-line role for the Canucks, finishing with one point and 37 penalty minutes. He was re-signed to a one-year deal this offseason and will have a similar role during the 2012-13 campaign.
The 26-year-old forward made his NHL debut last season, notching two points in 15 games with the Canucks. He projects as a low-scoring grinder at the NHL level and will likely be a fringe player again this year.
