RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
You know what youíll get out of Lowry Ė hits and tidbits of box-score production throughout the season. Last year, the bruiser registered just seven goals and 10 assists, but laid on a respectable amount of hits (187) to follow up his massive rookie season total of 256. Unfortunately, the 23-year-old could get pushed back even further into the lineup, skating predominantly on the fourth line after a year of second-line duty. That could change, but even if it does, Lowry offers fantasy owners hits and little else.
Lowry proved to be a hard-hitting presence on the Jets' depth lines in his rookie year, racking up a spectacular 256 hits (12th in the NHL) to go with a nice complement of 23 points in 80 games. While the 6-foot-5 bruiser is just entering his age-22 campaign, it's hard to project huge improvement from here for Lowry -- last year was pretty emblematic of his talent level, and while he might reach 40 points in time, that's pretty much his ceiling. He'll return as a member of the Jets' third line, and unless Mathieu Perreault struggles mightily, Lowry will have a hard time moving into the top-six forward group. Draft him for the hits and consider everything else a bonus.
Lowry has yet to make his NHL debut, but put together a solid season with AHL St. Johnís in 2013-14, his first full year as a pro. The winger racked up 17 goals and 16 assists in 64 games, and chipped in 49 PIM as well. The former third-round pick is still just 21 years old and is a popular pick to make the team out of camp this year -- or at least play his way to the Jets by midseason -- after proving he could make a smooth transition to the professional game. Lowry posted more than a point-per-game over his previous two seasons with the WHLís Swift Current Broncos and the team is hoping that scoring touch will translate to NHL production and his 6-5 frame will aid him in the defensive end. It would be wise to wait until he proves he can make the jump to the NHL before picking him up, but Lowry is certainly a name that could have fantasy value in the near future.
