RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Muzzin got a look with the Kings last year thanks to some injuries and blossomed with 16 points in 45 games under head coach Daryl Sutter. His play seemed to get better as the season wore on and he started to see consistent minutes on the power play by season's end. He could be a sneaky source of points if his development continues and his power play time sticks.
Muzzin spent the season in the AHL, tallying 31 points in 71 games for Manchester. He's likely ticketed for another season in the AHL after getting bypassed by some other blueliners on the organizational depth chart.
Muzzin earned himself a spot on the Kings with a strong training camp but was sent to the AHL after just 11 games. He's got a hard shot and posted respectable numbers (three goals, 15 assists in 45 games) at the AHL and figures to compete for a roster spot again this training camp.
