Carl Hagelin: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Despite spending most of the season on the Rangers most productive line with Derek Stepan and Ryan Callahan, Hagelin had a roller coaster campaign in 2012-13. After being shutout in the first seven games, Hagelin developed a knack for being in the right place at the right time, notching 14 goals in his next 18 games. Although he played in all 48 games and ranked fifth (10 goals, 14 assists) in team scoring, the speedster's offense was spotty throughout the remainder of the season and playoffs. Regardless, the brass decided to reward the Swede with a two-year, $4.5 million contract extension. Coming off surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder, the third year winger could be poised for a much more consistent season, if new head coach Alain Vigneault pairs Hagelin with Derek Stepan and Ryan Callahan again. More valuable in keeper leagues, he's a late-rounder and a gamble for annual re-draft leagues.
Hagelin posted a very strong rookie season as he tallied 14 goals and 24 assists in only 64 regular-season games to go with a plus-21 rating and two shorthanded tallies. Hagelin is an excellent skater, but it remains to be seen how the Rick Nash acquisition will impact Hagelin, who displayed great chemistry with Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik, but he will almost certainly be a fixture on one of the Blueshirts' top two lines. The 23-year old Swede likely won't be on as many fantasy owners' radars as he should be, and could represent great sleeper value in the mid-to-late rounds of drafts.
At age 23, Hagelin, who graduated from the University of Michigan, has been a steady developing Rangers prospect who could be ready to push for a roster spot. In all likelihood, though, he'll start the year in the minors.
