RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jordan Szwarz.
The Coyotes re-signed Szwarz to a two-year contract as a restricted free agent following a season in which he saw action in 26 games for the big club and served as captain of the AHL Portland Pirates. He will contend for a roster spot as a role player and energy guy, but may fall victim to the "AHL captain" minor-league curse.
Szwarz tallied 20 points in 58 games for the Portland Piratesof the AHL last season, a stunning drop-off from his previous seasons in the OHL where he notched 51, 54 and 66 points in three seasons. Expect him to continue to develop his game in the AHL this season, but it looks like the progress could be slower than anticipated.
Szwarz, a former fourth-round pick, has spent most of his time in the OHL, where he played at a hair over a point-per-game pace last season (66 points, 65 games) with a plus-33 rating. Szwarz will likely begin 2011-12 with the team's AHL affiliate and if he can duplicate his OHL successes, there's a chance he could see a call-up to the NHL level.
