RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Vancouver’s 2014 first-rounder (24th overall), McCann totaled nine goals and nine assists in 69 games as a rookie last season, but was dealt to the Panthers in the offseason along with a couple picks for blueliner Erik Gudbranson. While the 20-year-old is a natural centerman, he’ll likely shift over to the wing – likely in a third-line role – due to Florida’s collection of young talent down the middle. Despite his pedigree, McCann doesn’t have game-breaking talent, but he’ll likely exceed last season’s production with a year of NHL experience under his belt.
