RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015-16

Subscribe now to see our 2015-16 outlook.

2014-15

Rinaldo's ability to aggrevate and disrupt his opponent's game puts him among the league's best pests. The real question is whether he has the ability to control and hone his game to provide a net benefit to his team. In only 67 games last year, he recorded a whopping 153 PIM while only contributing two goals and two assists. To make matters worse, he was a -13, and ended up splitting time with Jay Rosehill. Fantasy GMs who want a one-trick pony would be well advised to grab Rinaldo to shore up the PIM category, but more well-rounded penalty minute contributors can be had in even the last round of any draft.

2013-14

Rinaldo is a thumper who spent 85 minutes in the penalty box last season, despite missing time with an ankle sprain. In April, the Flyers extended his contract for two years, so it looks like the 23-year-old will be pounding Flyers' opponents once again this season. He doesn't collect a lot of points, so look for him in later rounds if your league values penalty minutes.

2012-13

Rinaldo was given a 66-game shot at the big leagues last year and, while it only yielded nine points, the gritty enforcer managed 232 PIMs, good enough for second in the league. The Flyers are a young, skilled team, and Rinaldo has plenty of teammates to protect if need be. Expect Rinaldo to frequent the sin bin again this season with the occasional bad penalty to go with the fights. He's definitely worth a look in deep leagues that reward penalty minutes especially for spot starts against Pittsburgh and the Rangers.

2011-12

Rinaldo appeared in a pair of playoff games last season and has remained in Philadelphia this summer to try and impress the Flyers' front office. He'll get a shot to make the team out of camp, but could be destined to be up and down the professional ranks this season.
