RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Sceviour saw his first serious NHL time last season, playing 26 games over which he put up eight goals and four assists. It's not clear how he'll fit into the Stars loaded forward corps, but if he can crack the lineup, he takes a lot of shots and has a nose for the net. The thing that may hold him back -- should he make the roster -- is that the top-six in Dallas is stacked. Theoretically, he could potentially displace Valeri Nichushkin or Antoine Roussel as the presumed young players who will appear in the top-six with Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin, Jason Spezza and Ales Hemsky. But we're not sure he gets that chance this season. If he gets up there, he has a chance of producing beyond projections. But if he's on the third or fourth line, this may be a year of developing for him. He has a relatively low ceiling compared to some of the high-end prospects in the system, so there's no reason to risk a pick on him. The rewards just aren't that great.
Sceviour finally started to show off the scoring punch he showed throughout his junior career in his third season in the AHL, potting 21 goals in 75 with the Texas Stars. He doesn't have great size or youth on his side, however, so it's pretty iffy at this point if he'll ever surface in the NHL.
