2015-16

2010-11

The Preds are very keen on Watson, who was their first-round draft pick this year, with GM David Poile even comparing him to Vancouver's Ryan Kesler. However, the team is already pretty deep on the right side, with wingers Patric Hornqvist and Martin Erat both ahead of Watson on the depth chart, so it might be awhile before he's able to crack the roster. He probably won't garner any real fantasy value for another season or two, but keep an eye on him.
