RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
In 39 games with the Bruins in 2015-16, Vatrano notched eight goals and 11 points, but during his stints at the AHL level, he was a top sniper, recording 36 goals and 55 points in 36 contests for Providence.Vatrano, whose surprising ascent last season is partly attributable to improved conditioning, has presumably earned a shot at a full-time job with the big club this coming season. His most notable weapon on offense is a deadly shot that gets sent off quickly and as long as the 22-year-old continues to refine his all-around game, he figures to be a key cog up front for Boston in 2016-17, thanks to his upside as a goal scorer. Whether that upside translates into fantasy utility out of the gate depends on where he lines up for the Bís and if he sees his share of power-play time.
