RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Ryan Hartman.
Hartman made quite an impression in his first taste of professional action last season, registering three goals and four assists in limted action for AHL Rockford. A first-round pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, Hartman has previously spent time in the junior ranks at OHL Plymouth and with the U.S. National Development Team. Of his many strengths, Hartmanís adept passing ability and smooth skating shine the brightest. The Blackhawks will probably keep Hartman at Rockford for the entire 2014-15 season for additional seasoning, as the team is no rush to fill a forward spot.
Hartman is the top agitator in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft -- he hits, he trashes, he hacks and he isn't afraid to back it up. The pick is a dream for him -- he's an Illinois boy. If you like guys like Andrew Shaw and Brad Marchand, you'll like him. He might even have a little Ryan Callahan in him and could be a multi-category, third-line stud in three or four years. He underwent surgery in the offseason to repair a dislocated shoulder, but should be ready to start this season back in the OHL.
