RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Koekkoek (pronounced coo-coo) has outstanding fantasy potential that is, if his injury history isn't a foreshadowing of an ugly future. He missed most of the 2011-12 season after shoulder surgery, but thought he had things "fixed." Nope. Part way through last year, it became clear the first surgery had failed and he underwent a more radical surgery in the spring that involved titanium screws, bone immobilzation and permanent reduction of range of motion. He should be ready for training camp and the docs say the surgery shouldn't limit him on the ice. But his development is behind and he'll spend 2013-14 with Windsor in the OHL. Still, he has it all -- size, skill and smooth, smooth wheels, particularly for a big man. He still has a chance to be a star, but we want to see how that shoulder holds up. Check back in a couple seasons.

2012-13

The skys the limit for this offensive defender. That is, if hes healthy. Koekkoek (pr. Coo-Coo) missed more than 40 games in his draft year due to a torn labrum in his shoulder. If hes fully healed, he could actually be one of the best two-way defenders of the 2012 draft and a real steal (he was the 10th overall selection). Hes big, poised with the puck and extremely mobile, and his first pass is one of the best of the draft. His compete level is also high and that bodes well for his NHL future as a possible top-pairing, scoring defender.
