Max Gortz, RW
Hometown: Hoor, Sweden
Drafted: 2012 by Nashville Predators, 172nd overall
June 2014 – Nashville’s eighth selection in the 2012 NHL draft signed his three year entry level contract with the team. Gortz is a big bodied winger who possesses a power game and an ability to chip in offensively. Gortz is still very raw and like many power forward prospects is a long term project. Gortz has shown an ability to score goals in the junior ranks however he has yet to do so at the pro level where he is given limited ice-time. In 40 games split between Farjestad and Frolunda of the SHL this past season, Gortz potted eight goals and 10 points. The likely move to Milwaukee next season should give Gortz more ice-time and the opportunity to refine his offensive game on smaller ice. Donesh Mazloum
Fantasy Outlook: D+
If he makes the NHL it likely won’t be for a while and even if he does, fantasy-worthy point totals aren’t inevitable.
