RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks


There was no outlook written for Matt Finn.


Finn's 2013-14 was as good as the previous season was bad. Finn finished second in OHL scoring from the blue line with 61 points (14 goals and 47 assists). His plus-minus was a whopping plus-57 and he led his Guelph Storm to an OHL championship and a Memorial Cup berth. Leaf fans should take a deep breath before they get excited -- Finn won't deliver offense like that in the NHL and his skating needs to continue to improve. He'll be a pass-first, second-pairing defender who plays a shutdown game like Matt Niskanen in Dallas. Let someone else in your keeper league take the bait.


Finn had a tough 2012-13. First stricken with mono and then felled by a nasty knee-on-knee hit, the smooth defender just couldn’t catch a break. He did play well on a thin Guelph Storm blue line when he did dress, but he'll need another year of junior -- a full year, that is -- to see if he can become an offensive force. Otherwise, he's a solid, top-four defender with second power-play unit upside. But that won't come for a few years just yet. Watch and wait.


Finn fits the mold of the prototypical puck-moving NHL defender – not only is he a great skater who can accurately hit the tape of a streaking forward in transition, but he also plays a strong positional game in his own zone. He may not have the flash-and-dash of the top defenders in the 2012 class, but he’s not that far behind. He should have a long NHL career as a sturdy, top-four defender, however, he'll return to junior but could be in the NHL in three seasons.
