An upper-body injury limited Armia to 57 games last year, and he came up just one point shy of reaching the 20-point threshold. Coming over from the Swedish league, the winger was touted as a sniper -- he put up 55 goals in three season with Assat Pori -- which led to him being selected 16th overall in the 2011 NHL Draft by Buffalo. Unfortunately, the Finn has never really lived up to that billing. There’s no reason to think the 24-year-old can't log a full 82-game campaign for the first time in his career, but it will likely be in a third-line role. His ice time figures to be about the same as last year (15:08 per game), and he should provide lower-end fantasy value while falling in around 15 goals and 30 points if he can stay healthy.

  2. Joel Armia 2017–18 Preseason Outlook
    An upper-body injury limited Armia to 57 games last year, and he came up just one point shy of reaching the 20-point threshold. Coming over from the Swedish league, the winger was touted as a sniper -- he put up 55 goals in three season with Assat Pori -- which led to him being selected 16th overall in the 2011 NHL Draft by Buffalo. Unfortunately, the Finn has never really lived up to that billing. There’s no reason to think the 24-year-old can't log a full 82-game campaign for the first time in his career, but it will likely be in a third-line role. His ice time figures to be about the same as last year (15:08 per game), and he should provide lower-end fantasy value while falling in around 15 goals and 30 points if he can stay healthy.
  3. Joel Armia 2014–15 Preseason Outlook
    A highly-touted sniper in Finland before coming overseas last year, Armia struggled in his first season in North America, producing just seven goals in 54 games with Rochester. Armia was hampered by a wrist injury suffered in training camp, and didn’t find his groove until the AHL playoffs, where he scored three goals in five games. Big things are still expected from Armia, who is just three years removed from being drafted in the first round. He will have a chance to earn a spot with the Sabres but will most likely spend the 2014-15 season with Rochester to further acclimate himself to the North American game.
  4. Joel Armia 2013–14 Preseason Outlook
    Armia was one of the top prospects outside North America last season, and is set to begin an NHL career following another impressive campaign in his native Finland. He posted 33 points in 47 games for Assat Pori of the SM-Liiga and also impressed with Team Finland at the World Junior Championships. Those in keeper leagues should be watching Armia very closely as he arrives in North America to begin his entry-level contract. With the Sabres in need of some offensive punch, Armia will have a strong chance at starting the season in Buffalo, and could contribute early on.
  5. Joel Armia 2012–13 Preseason Outlook
    Armia, the 16th overall selection in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, will remain in his native Finland this season to continue his development. The Sabres have high hopes for the offensively gifted winger, who signed his entry-level contract in June. Keep a close eye on him in keeper leagues, as he may be ready to cross the pond next season. Armia grabbed 38 points in 54 games for Assat Pori of the SM-Liiga.
  6. Joel Armia 2011–12 Preseason Outlook
    The Sabres grabbed Armia with the 16th overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, adding size to a relatively small crop of forwards that they have in the organization. Armia will stay in Finland as he is committed to play at least one more year with Assat of SM-Liga.
