RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Maxime Fortunus.
Fortunus has spent the past three seasons in the AHL, racking up some decent numbers along the way. But the Stars have yet to really commit to him at the NHL level despite numerous needs on the blueline over the past few seasons. And there's no reason to think they'll turn to him should a need arise this season with several younger prospects now at the high-minor levels.
Fortunus has showed some scoring touch from the blueline the past two seasons in the AHL (11-12-23 in 72 games; 5-29-34 in 73 games) but was pointless in eight games with Dallas last year as an injury fill-in. Dallas has hard enough time finding ice time for guys like Mark Fistric, so Fortunus figures to see Big D only in emergency conditions.
