RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

There was no outlook written for Matt Taormina.

2013-14

Taormina will get a long look at training camp, but his contract may end up being his undoing -- it's a two-way deal that saves the Bolts money and headaches. If he makes the club, he could work the second power-play unit. But given the tough competition, we're guessing he starts the season in the AHL.

2012-13

Taormina is a small, power-play specialist on a two-way deal. He'll be in the hunt for a possible roster spot, but only if Marc-Andre Bergeron falters or Mark Barberio fails to impress.

2011-12

Taormina had his rookie season shortened by a broken ankle just 17 games into the campaign. He's a young player with offensive upside, something the Devils desperately need on the blue line. He'll get as good of a shot as any to battle for playing time, as there are a plethora of defensemen jockeying for several spots. Remember Taormina's name in deep leagues when filling in your roster, but he'll have to earn his playing time.

2010-11

Taormina was a breakthrough player in training camp, enough to earn him a spot on the opening day roster. He's a puck mover that played under new coach John MacLean at Lowell (AHL) and posted a 50 point season in 2009-10, so look for him to see some power play time. Take a flier on him in deeper leagues but keep tabs to see what his role is in the early going.
