RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Couturier signed a two-year extension in late July, and looks to recover from a down season. Known for his defensive prowess, the 20-year-old center is still young and developing, so he could be a target in keeper leagues. And if he can get back to his 2011-12 form when he posted a rating of plus-18, he has the potential to add value in deeper leagues.
Couturier had an impressive NHL rookie season with 27 points and a plus-18. While he may not have put up all-star fantasy numbers, with the absence Jaromir Jagr and a few other free agents, Couturier will be expected to play a bigger role this year and may be in for a breakout season. He has uncanny poise for a young NHL player and his two-way skill have allowed him to successfully close down some of the Eastern Conference's top scorers; he's regularly matched up against players like Evgeni Malkin and Ilya Kovalchuk. Remember his name in keeper leagues.
