RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Athanasiou finished the season with AHL Grand Rapids after torching the OHL for 49 goals and 95 points. He should get a chance to make some noise in the AHL full-time this season.
Athanasiou impressed in the OHL in 2012-13, tallying 67 points in 68 games with Barrie. However, he will need to continue to prove his worth to make his way to the AHL, and perhaps the NHL.
