Dalton Prout will be joined by Scott Harrington and Lukas Sedlak in the press box for Columbus' opener on Thursday night.

Prout is a sneaky play in any league that rewards PIMs and hits, as he's posted consecutive seasons of at least 85 PIMs and 132 hits with 63 games in each of the last two seasons. If your league doesn't value those talents however, then he's about as valuable as Harrington and Sedlak.

Dalton Prout could start the NHL season in the press box as a healthy scratch.

Prout sat out the last two games of the preseason when coach John Tortorella looked to start his regulars. Prout has certainly been passed by Zach Werenski on the blueline and could have a tough time getting into the lineup. He has no fantasy value.
