RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Brendan Ranford.
Ranford is entering his second season with the AHL Stars and has nice offensive upside. However, there's no way of knowing if that can translate to the NHL stage. The big squad is just too deep for him to crack this season, so expect him to toil in the A again this year.
After a solid but mostly unspectacular major junior career with Kamloops (WHL), Ranford has signed with the Texas Stars (AHL). Ranford will have his work cut out for him as he tries to prove himself worthy of a spot on an AHL roster.
The Flyers opted not to re-sign Ranford this July after a 92-point season in 69 games with Kamloops of the WHL. Ranford is unlikely to be skating with the Flyers or any of their affiliated organizations in the 2012-13 season.
Ranford has struggled to make his mark in juniors and is also battling a weight issue, though he has acknowledge it and is trying to shed some pounds. He's a ways off from seeing the Flyers' roster.
