Tanner Pearson: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Pearson jumped straight from the 2012 draft to the AHL and had a very nice debut (19 goals, 28 assists in 64 games) at Manchester. He spent time on the team's top line and power play, as well as killing penalties, and may give the organization some top-six potential at the left wing spot. He'll most certainly get more time to round out his game at the AHL again this season.
Pearson was a late-bloomer after getting bypassed in his first two years of draft eligiblity, but exploded last season with 91 points (37 G, 54 A) in 60 games in the OHL, earning him a first-round selection by the Kings in the 2012 Entry Draft. He'll likely head to the AHL to prove that last year's outburst wasn't a fluke.
