RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Conor Allen.
Allen, who logged 31 points and 71 penalty minutes in 72 games with Hartford, did get his feet wet in three games with the parent club last season.The Rangers' defensive core is loaded with puck-moving left handed shots, so barring any training camp injuries the undrafted free agent out of UMass is likely to start his second pro season with Hartford.
Allen was one of the most talked about free agent collegiate signings this past season. Right after signing an amateur tryout contract with the Rangers, the 23-year-old collegian even appeared in a game with AHL affiliate Hartford. Allen was a two-time Hockey East All-Academic while registering 14 goals and 25 assists through four seasons with UMass-Amherst. So he has that going for him. Still he doesn't seem to have an extremely high upside offensively, so keeper league owners, should take wait and see approach.
