Jordan Eberle: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Eberle's numbers were a little off last season after his breakout 2011-12 campaign. Still, this is a 30-plus goal scorer playing on one of the best young lines in the NHL. Yum. Eberle should be taken early in drafts as scoring wingers will go off the board quickly. Playing on the top line with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Taylor Hall should give the trio plenty of scoring opportunities assuming they can all stay healthy, and Eberle's career bests could easily get a boost.
Eberle's sophomore season was a big success as he scored 34 goals and 42 assists in 78 games. He plays on a top line with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Taylor Hall, a line that's one of the best up-and-coming trios in the NHL. Eberle should only get better as all three players gain much needed experience. Eberle fell through the cracks in some fantasy drafts last season, but that time has come to an end. He'll be off the board early.
Though Eberle had a solid rookie campaign with 18 goals and 43 points, he should certainly improve in his sophomore season. The centerman will get to know the league better, and the Oilers are starting to acquire more talent which will only help Eberle. Slotted for the second line, Eberle has a high ceiling and could eventually top the 30-goal mark in a season.
Eberle scored 50 goals and had 106 points in 57 games last season for the Regina Pats. He may be the type of player who can not only light the lamp, but put fans in the seats for Edmonton. Eberle has the look of a 40-plus goal scorer, but that may take a season or two to come to fruition. The Oilers have been taking it slow with Eberle not wanting to rush him to the NHL, but after being named the Canadian Hockey League Player of the year, the time may be now for both Edmonton and Eberle. If he's not ready for the NHL, Eberle will start the year in the AHL with the Oilers' affiliate in Oklahoma City.
Eberle was the Oilers' first-round draft choice in 2008 and played last season in junior hockey. He is only 19 years of age and it's still uncertain if he is ready for the jump to the NHL. Eberle is a talented and fast offensive player whose future lies as a 40-goal scorer in the NHL. He is certainly someone to keep an eye on especially in keeper leagues.
