RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Meier was a beast in his final year of junior hockey, posting 34 goals and 53 assists in 52 games. He then added 23 points in 18 postseason contests, and eight more points in five Memorial Cup games. The power forward projects to get some NHL time this season. The big question is how well he does at camp and whether general manager Doug Wilson believes that Meier needs some time with AHL San Jose to ease the transition into the pro ranks.
The ninth overall pick in the 2015 draft, Meier already has NHL size and perhaps NHL-caliber sniping ability after ripping off 44 goals and 46 assists for Halifax of the QMJHL last season. But that doesn't meant that the 18-year-old Swiss native has a role with the Sharks right now -- the team's forward corps is quite deep. Most likely, following training camp with San Jose, the budding power forward will return for another campaign at Halifax, where a big season could land him high on next year's prospect lists.
