RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Stefan Noesen.
Noesen, Ottawa's second pick in the first round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, had a solid 2011-12 season in junior playing for the Plymouth Whalers of the OHL, leading the team in scoring with 38 goals and 44 assists in 63 games and was a plus-18. Noesen was dynamite in the playoffs, notching 15 points (7G, 8A) in seven games before suffering a wrist injury which sidelined him for the remainder of the postseason. Noesen is likely another year or two away from seriously challenging for a spot in Ottawa's lineup, but he is an extemely hard worker who has gained both weight and strength since his draft year. He projects as a solid top-9 winger with top-6 potential who is tough to play against while also possessing a very underrated offensive game. 2012-13 should see him spend his final year in junior with Plymouth before moving on to Ottawa's AHL affiliate in Binghamton.
Noesen will spend the 2011-12 season playing for the Plymouth Whalers of the OHL where he'll look to better his numbers from the previous year, when he exploded for 34 goals and 43 assists in 68 games. Ottawa's management has compared the 21st overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft to Corey Perry in that he's big, strong, and plays with an edge while also showing some nice skill with the puck. Noesen projects as a power forward and is likely two to three years away from challenging for a spot with the Senators.
