RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
A third-round pick by the Red Wings in 2013, Janmark was acquired by Dallas for Erik Cole in March of 2015, finished out his final year in Sweden, and then came over to the NHL last season. He made an immediate impact, opening his North American career with a four-game point streak and then settling in as a reliable presence in the Stars’ bottom-six mix. It’s unclear how much fantasy appeal the 23-year-old has in the long term, though – he plays a solid two-way game, but lacks physicality and may never score quite enough to satisfy owners. But he also has a cake slot on the Stars’ second line alongside Jason Spezza, which is enough to make him a late-round flier.
Janmark-Nylen had a big year in Sweden in 2012-13 and will continue to hone his skills there in 2013-14.
