RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Sam Brittain.
Once a standout goaltender at the University of Denver, Britain had a strong season in his first taste of professional hockey. Starting in the ECHL, Brittain went 14-11-1 with a 2.71 GAA and a .895 save percentage in 27 games. He then got the call up to AHL San Antonio, where he was excellent, going 4-2-1 with a 1.76 GAA and a .943 save percentage. Brittain projects as a future backup at the NHL level, but he could earn the larger portion of a timeshare in goal with Mike McKenna in the minors this season.
Brittain will likely remain at the University of Denver for his senior season in 2013-14, where he'll hope to improve on his Junior campaign. The goaltender saw his save-percentage decrease from .932 his sophomore year, to a rather pedestrian .907 in 2012-13. That same season also resulted in his GAA inflating to 2.95 from just 2.36 the year before. If Brittain can't turn things around in 2013-14, he'll have a hard time ever working working his way onto an NHL roster.
