RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Rust is a bottom-six winger who provides energy and a few timely goals. The 24-year-old collected only four goals and 11 points in 41 regular-season tilts, but was nonetheless named the team’s rookie of the year. He capped his campaign with a big Stanley Cup run, potting six goals and nine points in 23 games, including the Game 7 winner against Tampa Bay in the Eastern Conference finals. It might be unwise to count on Rust’s offense – he’s never averaged a point per-game at any level – but he figures to see regular shifts on Pittsburgh’s third line in 2016-17.
