RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks


There was no outlook written for Alex Friesen.


While Friesen had previously shown the ability to rack up points at the OHL level, he struggled mightily to do so during his first taste of the AHL last year. The 22-year-old forward managed just five points (one goal, four assists) in 42 games with Chicago of the AHL. At 5-9 and 186, Friesen might be considered undersized, but he plays much bigger than his frame and isnít afraid to drop his gloves. Additional time is needed in the AHL, but Friesen could develop into a third- or fourth-line option for the Canucks in a couple years.


Friesen was selected by the Canucks in the sixth round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. The 21-year old center has averaged over a point-per-game at the OHL level the past three seasons, totaling 197 points (75 G, 122 A) in 182 contests. At 5-9 and 186 pounds, Friesen doesnít have much size, but he plays bigger than his frame, racking up 106 penalty minutes for Niagara of the OHL in 2011-12. His upside is as a third- or fourth-line energy type, but Friesen will have to prove his worth at the AHL level before evening reaching those heights.
