RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015-16

Subscribe now to see our 2015-16 outlook.

2014-15

Would you have guessed that Bjugstad was Panthers' leading scorer in 2013-14? The fact he had only 38 points makes it a difficult trivia question to get right, but don't dismiss the young pivot -- Bjugstad put up strong shot (185) and hit (117) totals in addition to a respectable point total for a 22-year-old in his first full season. The Panthers have improved their depth, which should benefit Bjugstad. With a small improvement in his shot total and shooting percentage, Bjugstad’s production could climb nicely. He could be a sneaky sleeper in fantasy leagues this year, as South Florida sometimes gets overlooked for talent.

2013-14

Bjugstad played 11 games with the Panthers after his season ended at the University of Minnesota, but managed to notch just one goal. The Panthers are relying on the 19th overall pick from the 2010 draft to turn into the hulking power forward he's supposed to be this season, but only time will tell if he's worth fantasy consideration. If his production doesn't pick up, he doesn't warrant a second glance, but his numbers with the Gophers (21/15/36 in 40 games last year) suggest that he has the potential to be the top-line center of the future in Sunrise, Florida.

2010-11

Florida scooped up Bjugstad, one of the best American prospects in the 2010 NHL Entry draft, with their 19th overall pick. At 18 years young, this kid has a quick motor strapped to his feet and his 6-4 frame is a warning for the opposition to get out of his way or pay the price. However, the highest competition he's dealt with so far are high school skaters. Bjugstad is headed for much greater competition at the University of Minnesota in 2010-11.
