RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
At the age of 23 in his first NHL season, Donskoi was on the older side for a rookie but was able to make an immediate impact after six years of professional seasoning in Finland with Karpat. He spent a good chunk of his time on a scoring line with studs Joe Pavelski and Joe Thornton, putting up 11 goals and 36 points in 76 contests. Between Tomas Hertl, Patrick Marleau, Joel Ward, Mikkel Boedker and Donskoi – among others – the Sharks have no shortage of secondary scoring options behind their big guns, so Donskoi will get plenty of different opportunities to build upon his success. Obviously, if he lands another plum role on a scoring line then his fantasy stock will carry more weight, so a wait-and-see approach might be in order until a better idea of the Sharks’ line combinations surfaces.
