RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2013-14

Forbort was drafted as a two-way defensemen with some offensive upside, but that hasn't really materialized in three seasons at the University of North Dakota. He has the size (6-4, 218) to log heavy minutes, but needs to improve his offensive game to be much of a fantasy factor. He'll head to the AHL if he opts to forego his last season at North Dakota.

2012-13

Forbort, the 15th overall pick in the 2010 Entry Draft, hasn't taken the step forward that many were envisioning from the 6-5, smooth-skating defenseman. He's still just 20 years old, but needs to start showing some signs of improvement. He did seem to elevate his game after suffering a foot injury at the 2012 World Junior Championship tournament, picking up nine points in his last 17 games. Hope remains.

2011-12

Forbort's a smooth-skating defenseman, though it hasn't translated into an offensive game yet. The 15th overall selection in the 2010 entry draft posted 15 assists (no goals) in 38 games for North Dakota and he'll look to continue to refine his game before making the next jump.

2010-11

The Kings had to be thrilled when Forbort slipped in the draft as they moved up two spots to grab him with the 15th overall pick. He skates well for someone his size (6'4") but doesn't really project as a standout at either end of the rink. He'll be a nice second pair defenseman once he matures but will need a few years before he's a candidate to skate with the Kings.
