RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Nolan got into a career-high 64 games with the Kings and seemed to have carved out a spot in the lineup on most nights. But then came the postseason and he sat in the press box for all but three games. The emergence of Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli figures to put a further crunch on Nolan's role. He's only a fantasy target in PIM leagues if he can work his way into the lineup on a regular basis.
Nolan gives the Kings some energy and grit, and shows occasional flashes of puck skills, but is best suited in his current role on the fourth line. He has the size and speed to be a very effective player in that role, but won't bring much (other than hits) to your fantasy squad.
Nolan took advantage of a February call-up and held onto a roster spot for the remainder of the season, filling a fourth-line role for the Kings; he had four points in 26 games. He'll compete for a similar role again in training camp.
