Andrew Desjardins: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Desjardins shot out of the blocks last year with a two-goal effort in his first game. Unfortunately for him, it was his best game of the year. He finished the year with just two more snipes and stood with 17 points total by season's end. But was his season as bad as his numbers looked? Not at all. He was solid in his role as the fourth-line center and he will reprise that role this year. And at some point, he could overtake the aging Michal Handzus and slide up to the third line. His offensive ceiling is ultimately limited. but he could give you 25 points this year. However, it's his energy and physicality that set Desjardins apart -- he'll be a 50/100 (PIM/hits) man this year and will deliver even more in years to come.
A door has opened for Desjardins to assume a larger role in the NHL. Gone are the likes of Scott Nichol, Jamal Mayers and Ben Eager, which clears some real estate for the 25-year-old on one the bottom two lines. It's apparent that the Sharks at least have short-term plans for Desjardins, as he and the Sharks agreed to a one-year deal in the offseason, but he's a mere depth option for the time being.
