RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

There was no outlook written for Robert Bortuzzo.

2013-14

Bortuzzo collected four points (2G, 2A) in 15 games with Pittsburgh and four points (1G, 3A) in 31 AHL contests in 2012-13. The stay-at-home defender plays with a nasty edge, totalling 100-plus penalty minutes in each of his two full seasons with Wilkes-Barre. Bortuzzo often served as a healthy scratch with the Pens last year, but he should see more action in 2013-14 with another year of experience under his belt. Aside from penalty minutes, Bortuzzo offers little in the way of fantasy value.

2012-13

Bortuzzo got his first taste of NHL action in 2011-12, suiting up for six games with the Pens. The 6-foot-4 blueliner has never scored more than 26 points in any of his three AHL seasons, but his forte is all about defense. Although the right-handed shooter failed to register any points in his brief trial in Pittsburgh, he didn't look out of place. With top-four defender, Zbynek Michalek, leaving the team for Phoenix, there's a decent chance Bortuzzo cracks the opening night lineup. Even if he does, there's a much better chance of him preventing possible goals than producing them. For that reason, he likely holds little fantasy appeal.
