RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Zach Fucale.
Fucale, a 2013 second-round draft pick, enjoyed another strong season in the QMJHL, taking home the Jacques Plante Trophy for posting the best GAA (2.26) in the league. The 19-year-old seems to have a bright future, but with Carey Price in the prime of his career, the organization is of no mind to rush him through the system.
Fucale was a second-round pick by Montreal in the 2013 draft. The 18-year-old netminder is poised and already has a championship, leading the Halifax Mooseheads to a Memorial Cup win in 2013. The organization is bereft of top-end goalie talent in the minor leagues, so Fucale becomes the club's best prospect at the position. He'll have time to develop -- two more junior-eligible years and whatever time is needed at the AHL level -- as Carey Price has the job locked down in Montreal for the next several seasons.
