RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

Salomaki played almost exclusively in a bottom-six role for the Preds last season, skating mainly alongside Paul Gaustad and Eric Nystrom on the fourth line. As such, the Finnish winger went mostly unnoticed by most fantasy owners, notching just 10 points in 61 games. Although Salomaki has shown some offensive upside in the past he tallied 50 points over 75 games in the AHL in 2013-14 his role is not expected to grow much this season, making him a fantasy consideration only in deep keeper formats.

2015-16

Salomaki scored a goal in his NHL debut for the Preds last season -- the only game he played for the big club after being recalled as an injury replacement in January. Despite the impressive debut, the Preds decided to send him back to AHL Milwaukee where he had 18 points in 38 games for the Admirals. Talent-wise, Salomaki has become known for being a tenacious defender who plays well in his own zone. As his offensive skills improve, he could turn into a solid two-way player in the NHL. For now, he is expected to continue his development at Milwaukee this upcoming season.
