Right Wing Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
 
Drew Stafford, RW, BUF9/22/2014 6:21:00 PM
Description: Sabres right wing Drew Stafford is trying to repeat his 30-goal season from the 2009-2010 season.
Insight: Stafford told the Buffalo News that the Sabres enter this season with higher expectations despite finishing last year with the fewest points in the NHL. With the right linemates, Stafford could threaten the 30-goal mark again, but with his situation in flex, he is not a player worth spending a high pick on in the draft. We see Stafford in the 15-20 goal range this year.
Chris Stewart, RW, BUF9/22/2014 6:16:00 PM
Description: Sabres winger Chris Stewart is one of the biggest boom-or-bust fantasy hockey players for the 2014-2015 season.
Insight: Stewart told Buffalo News that he has high expectations for himself this season, and he has the motivation to succeed being in a contract year. Still, Stewart sometimes goes long stretches without a point. It will depend greatly on his situation this year, but he should be one of Buffalo's top six forwards with around 17 goals and 30-35 points.
Reilly Smith, RW, BOS9/20/2014 6:51:00 PM
Description: Bruins right wing Reilly Smith could provide nice value late in drafts.
Insight: He is going in the middle of the 14th round on average. After posting 51 points (20 goals and 31 assists), and only 23-years-old, those numbers are destined to increase.
Loui Eriksson, RW, BOS9/20/2014 6:27:00 PM
Description: Bruins winger Loui Erksson will start the season on the top line for Boston.
Insight: From the 2008-09 season through 2011-12, Eriksson compiled at least 63 points each year. However, after playing in only 61 games during his first season in Boston, he was only able to manage 10 goals and 27 assists, with a +14 rating. Playing on the top line will give Eriksson a nice chance to get back to the 70-point mark. Look to target him around the 13th round.
Ales Hemsky, RW, DAL9/20/2014 12:20:00 PM
Description: Right winger Ales Hemsky is destined to play with a good center in Dallas, most likely Speeza on the second line.
Insight: Hemsky and Spezza had success playing together last season after Edmonton traded Hemsky to Ottawa. The 31-year-old winger produced 43 points last season between the two teams and hopefully can improve on an ugly -15 rating.
Valeri Nichushkin, RW, DAL9/20/2014 12:04:00 PM
Description: Stars young winger Valeri Nichushkin has a prime spot on the top line with Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin and his numbers can only go one way ... up.
Insight: The 19-year-old Nichushkin, the 2013 10th overall pick, managed 14 goals and 20 assists last season. As long as he's with the two "star" Stars he should be an easy 20-20 guy in his second season. And if he gets significant power play time he could have a breakout season.
Daniel Cleary, RW, DET9/20/2014 10:52:00 AM
Description: Red Wings winger Danny Cleary (knee) appears to have arrived at training camp healthy for the first time in a couple years.
Insight: Cleary has the ability to be a 20-20 guy if he can stay on the ice. It's encouraging that he was reported to be playing on a line with Henrik Zetterberg and Johan Franzen for the first practice, but nothing is guaranteed.
Brent Burns, RW, SJS9/19/2014 9:43:00 PM
Description: San Jose head coach Todd McLellan confirms that the team sees Brent Burns as a defenseman and not a forward according to CSN Bay Area.
Insight: Both Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau said they would like to see Burns return to forward, but their head coach does not agree. Being that the Sharks lost Dan Boyle and Brad Stuart this offseason, it is probably best for the team leaving Burns on the blue line.
Anthony Mantha, RW, DET9/18/2014 1:30:00 PM
Description: Red Wings winger Anthony Mantha will be out six-to-eight weeks due to a fractured right tibia.
Insight: He was injured on Monday while playing in a rookie tournament game.The 20th overall pick in the 2013 draft was expected to compete for a roster spot in training camp, but that has been put on hold for the time being.
