RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After two seasons in Calgary, Jooris signed a one-year deal to join the Rangers, with whom he’ll serve as forward depth this year. He impressed as a rookie with the Flames two years ago, scoring 12 goals and 24 points in 60 games, but dropped to just 13 points last season and doesn’t seem likely to experience a big surge in his third NHL campaign. In fact, Jooris will have to fight for minutes just to serve as a fourth-liner and penalty killer on Broadway, meaning he’ll likely have little fantasy value once again.
Jooris began his season on a major roll before hitting a bit of a rookie wall and having his season come to a premature end due to a wrist injury. Still, 24 points in 60 games in a debut season is nothing to complain about, and Jooris definitely earned the right to a roster spot heading into 2015-16. He should contribute occasional offense on the fourth line, and could move up lines if he continues to improve his abilities on offense.
Jooris tallied 27 points in 73 games with AHL Abbotsford in 2013-14 and will, in all likelihood, remain in the AHL throughout 2014-15.
