RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2015-16

Dorsett was a productive bottom-six forward in his first year with Vancouver, contributing seven goals and a career-high 25 points in 79 games. While he only averaged 12:02 of ice time and doesnít play on the power play, Dorsett was valuable in some deeper leagues due to his whopping 175 PIM, two shorthanded goals and three game-winning tallies. While the 28-year-old wonít put up big offensive numbers, he dished out 166 hits in 2014-15 and has recorded at least 100 PIM in each of his six full NHL seasons, so he's very valuable in specialty formats. The epitome of a bottom-six forward, donít expect the feisty Dorsett to make any huge leap in terms of offensive production this year.

2014-15

Dorsett played in 51 games last season with the Rangers, tallying four goals and four assists alongside 128 PIM, and arrived in a Vancouver in late-June trade. The 27-year-old has appeared in an average of 57 games over the past four seasons, with his best season coming with Columbus in 2011-2012 where he notched 12 goals and 20 points. He is unlikely to provide much fantasy value outside of PIM and will battle for a spot on the teamís fourth line.

2013-14

Acquired in part for Marian Gaborik at last season's trading deadline, Dorsett has yet to appear in a regular season game for the blue shirts. Having come over from Columbus' IR with a broken clavicle, it wasn't until the first round playoff match up with the Washington Capitals that the Rangers got their first look at their new bruiser. Currently under contract for another two years, the 6'0, 190-pound Saskatchewan native registered a minus-1 with an assist, 28 hits and 28 penalty minutes through 11 playoff games last season. While the veteran enforcer of five seasons has some flair for offense (27 goals, 38 assists), with 727 penalty minutes through 280 NHL career games, Dorsett is a sure bet for exclusive checking line minutes. At this point, he should only be considered if your statistical need is hits and penalty minutes.

2012-13

Dorsett was one of the few Blue Jackets to perform better than expected in 2011-2012, posting career highs in goals (12), points (20) and PIMs with 235 in 77 games. He fights above his weight class often enough to be an injury risk, making a repeat of those numbers unlikely, but with Columbus likely trying to build a physical, scrappy team in the wake of Rick Nash's departure, Dorsett could well end up as the team's poster boy. In deep leagues that reward penalty minutes, enforcers with double-digit goal and triple-digit PIM totals are a nice way to round out your roster.

2011-12

Dorsett was extra-feisty last season, nearly matching Blue Jackets' enforcer Jared Boll with 184 PIMs while chipping in 17 points in 76 games. He's developing into one of the NHL's best agitators, and a 25-point, 200-PIM season isn't out of the question.

2010-11

Fourth line agitator managed 14 points and 105 PIMs in just 51 games in '09-'10.

2009-10

Hard-nosed rookie scored five points with 150 PIMs in 52 games on the Blue Jackets' fourth line, and should provide more of the same in '09-'10.
