How has Niskala looked in camp so far?
Does he have a chance to crack the line-up?
If he cracks the the line-up, does he have a chance at some significant ice time (pp qb job)?
and lastly, regarding his contract situation, is he on a one way contract?
we have 7 defensemen on one way deals and Niskala isnt one of them, plus Klein and Henry, thus I would rate his chances at making the Preds roster out of camp at zero. He would have to leapfrog at least 3 guys with NHL experience and one euro on a one-way deal to make the top 6, plus if any dark horse is gonna make it it would probably be Franson.
as for how he looks I cant say because I havent been to camp, but none of the guys who have been writing about camp have noticed enough to say much about him
