RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

With his first season in a Sharks' sweater now behind him, Irwin has shown that he has some offensive upside and the potential to stake out a bigger role on the team this season. In 38 games, he put up six goals and six assists, including five power-play points, blocked 65 shots and averaged over 19 minutes and more than two shots per game. He's not going to lead the defensive core in points, but for a first season in the NHL, those are promising numbers. Promising enough to pick him up on draft day, you ask? No, probably not. We wouldn’t bet on this being Irwin’s breakout year, but expect these numbers to improve. He's worth keeping an eye on.

2011-12

Irwin is a powerful defender with offensive upside. He turned in his first full season of professional hockey in 2010-11, recording 31 points (10 G, 21 A) and 43 penalty minutes for the Sharks’ minor league affiliate in Worcester. The talented rearguard is likely to require more seasoning in the minors this year.
