The Penguins are looking for Maatta to take his game to another level in 2016-17. "He played top-four minutes most of the year for us as a 21-year-old," coach Mike Sullivan told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "I think that speaks volumes for how the coaching staff feels about him as a player and a person. He's got great hockey sense. He's very competitive. We're constantly striving to get better, and as young as Olli is, we think his game can get to another level."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

Last season started with a wealth of promise for Maatta, but things certainly didn't go according to plan. Offseason shoulder surgery led to him barely getting cleared in time to open the season. One month later, he hit injured reserve to have a cancerous tumor in his thyroid surgically removed; upon returning, Maatta got just 10 more games in before a second shoulder injury (with a case of the mumps to boot) ended his season early. The good news is that Maatta is still quite young -- this will be his age-21 season -- and thus there's room for optimism that his body will bounce back from these multitude of ailments. When healthy, he's proven himself to be one of the league's finest young two-way defensemen, with 38 points and a plus-9 rating in his first 98 NHL contests. There's plenty of upside from there, especially with Maatta projected to see top-pairing minutes with some power-play time this year.

2014-15

At age 19, Maatta surprised observers with an excellent rookie season at both ends of the ice. Picked 22nd overall in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, the Finnish defenseman scored nine goals and 29 points in 78 games. He also helped fantasy owners with 112 blocks and even saw a little power-play time, netting three goals and three assists on the man-advantage. Maatta will serve as a top-four blueliner in 2014-15, though he might miss the first handful of games or so due to offseason shoulder surgery. He's thought to be more of a two-way player than an offensive defenseman, but his freshman campaign gave fantasy owners more than a little hope he can become a regular contributor in the scoring column.

2013-14

Maatta, a first-round pick in 2012, has exceeded expectations at the OHL level. Known mostly as a defensive defenseman, Maatta has posted strong offensive numbers in his two seasons with the London Knights. He scored 32 points (5G, 27A) in 58 games in his first year and 38 points (8G, 30A) in 58 contests last season. Maatta has played well in the postseason and, despite some defensive areas that still need work, appears on the fast track to Pittsburgh. He doesn't have the offensive potential of fellow first-round pick, Derrick Pouliot, yet it wouldn't be surprising to see him become a better two-way player.

2012-13

Pittsburgh selected Maatta with 22nd pick in the 2012 draft. He projects as a solid two-way defenseman without the upside of fellow first-round pick, Derrick Pouliot. Maatta has been slowed by concussions, but the Penguins are hopeful those issues are well behind him. The Finnish product posted five goals and 32 points in 58 games for London (OHL) but really picked up his play in the postseason. Maatta potted six goals and 17 assists in 19 games for the Knights. His offensive potential is not particularly high, but his ability to play both ends of the ice gives him a good chance of dressing in a Penguins sweater in the not-too-distant future.
