Observations:

May 2014 – After being passed over in his first year of draft eligibility, Nashville selected Shalla in the fourth round of the 2011 draft. Since then, Shalla has struggled to crack the Predators AHL team full time bouncing between the Milwaukee Admirals and the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL. As of now Shalla seems stuck as an ECHL/AHL tweener. This past season he posted a paltry four points in 26 games with the Admirals yet was a point-per-game player with the Cyclones. Shalla is among the ECHL playoff leading scorers. Donesh Mazloum

 

Fantasy Outlook: D

Shalla has shown an ability to pile up goals in juniors however it seems doubtful that he will fill that role at the NHL level. At his age and place amongst the organizational depth chart he is a longshot NHLer at best.
