RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

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.
