RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The 2013 first-round pick played his first full season of pro hockey last year and impressed. He showed off his significant offensive talent by scoring 22 goals and 53 points for AHL Texas. He won't blow the doors off the NHL, but he could develop into a solid middle-six forward capable of being a depth contributor on fantasy teams. He made his NHL debut last season, scoring a single goal in his one appearance. He has potential, but will have to battle for a roster spot in the Stars' stacked forward group.
At just 19 years of age, Dickinson is one of Dallas' most exciting prospects. He'll make the jump to the AHL this season after signing a three-year entry-level deal with the team. He spent last season in the OHL with a very good Guelph Storm team where he scored 26 goals and 78 points in 68 games. He's developing quickly and the team wants to help him. That means a full season -- and maybe two or three -- in the AHL. The big club is deep, so he'll only make an occasional appearance in Dallas as an injury fill-in. He's best served by getting a chance to dominate the A. Watch his development -- he could be fantasy worthy some day.
