RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Every team wants their own Zdeno Chara and that man is Abeltshauser in San Jose. He's just a kid, but at 6-5, he sort of fits the bill. His ceiling isn't as high or as complete as Mr. Chara, and he's probably four or five years from the NHL. Keeper leaguers don't even need to keep his name on a maybe list; at least not yet. Big guys almost always have a slower route to success.
Abeltshauser was selected by the Sharks in the sixth round (No. 163 overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. The German spent the last two seasons defending for the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL), totaling 52 points (13 G, 39 A) in 106 games. However, the 18-year-old has his work cut out for him in preparing for a future NHL job, as he has posted a minus-26 and minus-36 ratings, respectively, the past two years.
