RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015-16

Subscribe now to see our 2015-16 outlook.

2014-15

Fontaine put up 13 goals and eight assists through 66 games in his rookie year. We'd like to say that the young winger will continue to improve and get more ice time in his sophomore year. But, the Wild's lineup continues to get deeper and the team's top-six looks nearly out of reach for winger and that will continue to limit his upside. His career upside is probably about 50 points -- there's a bit of puck luck, like an empty net on his hat trick or a bounce off the shin, in those 13 goals. He'll be a fantasy role player on the Wild's fourth line. There's not much value in that.

2013-14

The former University of Minnesota Duluth star scored 56 points in 64 games with AHL Houston last season. He made a strong impression in training camp and skated frequently on the second line. He could carve out a role on a top-three line at some point this season.
