RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Fasth enjoyed a strong regular season, finishing with the 11th-best save percentage and GAA in the NHL while recording 15 wins. There were times when it appeared as though he had stolen the starting gig from Jonas Hiller, but he sat stapled to the bench in the postseason. Still, he will definitely push Hiller this year and don't be surprised to see a platoon emerge at some point. The Ducks seem to believe in him, having signed him to a two-year extension in February 2013. You should, too.

2012-13

So, is Fasth really as good as advertised? He's been the best goalie in the Swedish league for the last two seasons and he absolutely carried Team Sweden at last spring's World Championship. He isn't huge, but he's fiery and competitive and that makes him seem bigger than 6-0. He's 30 and has plenty of pro experience under his belt, so that gives him the inside edge as the back-up. And if his butterfly is as good as it seems, he could be pressing workhorse Jonas Hiller for games. No, not starter-type minutes, but he could push to get as many as 25 starts.
