RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Following his graduation from Union College, Gostisbehere joined AHL Adirondack for the last two games of their season, registering a minus-2 with no points. It's expected that he'll start the upcoming season in the AHL and look to put together a solid rookie campaign in his first full year as a pro. He had a very successful NCAA career -- he ended it by taking home the ECAC Player of the Year and Best Defensive Defenseman awards -- and will look to show that he can translate his collegiate experience into success at the much more difficult minor-league level. Keeper owners should remember his name even if they can't spell it -- he has top-four stalwart and power-play QB written all over him.
