Observations:

 

March 2014 - In a minor league deal, the St. Louis Blues traded forward Mark Mancari to the Florida Panthers in exchange for left winger Eric Selleck. Mancari has seen spot duty with the Buffalo Sabres and Vancouver Canucks but has yet to find a home in the NHL. With Florida's young deep prospect pool, it won't get any easier for Mancari to crack the Panthers' competitive roster. Mancari is slated to become an UFA at the expiration of the 2013-14 season. Brendan Ross

 

July 2013- Mark Mancari is leaving the Buffalo Sabres organization for the second time in three years after signing a one-year, two-way deal with the St. Louis Blues. The deal was signed off on July 5th, the opening day of free agency. Mancari is coming off a solid season where he led the Rochester Americans and finished 11th in league scoring with 22G-39A-61-PTS in 76 games played. He will be moving to Peoria where he will bring his wealth of leadership and scoring ability to help solidify the Rivermens attack. Look for Mancari to be up near the top of the AHL scoring leader board again next season unless injuries begin to mount in St. Louis then you may see a call-up to the big league club. Travis Watson

 

 

July 2012 – Mancari is somewhat of a ‘Super Sub’, depth player, with an exceptional shot. He has been excellent in every organization he has played for in the development of minor league players. He has not done anything wrong in development to not make the NHL and he does have 13 points in 42 career NHL games, but he keeps getting utilized as an organizational depth player. Unfortunately, at the age of 27 on a two way contract, he will likely stay in the same role. Buffalo does have an opening. In camp he will battle Kevin Porter to be an extra winger, along with Luke Adam, Marcus Foligno, Brian Flynn, Corey Tropp, Phil Varone and Nick Tarnasky. Obviously, if he does get reassigned to the Rochester Americans, his depth-mates are rather strong and he will continue to post strong AHL numbers. Should Mancari make Buffalo, keep him on your radar, it would not surprise to see him produce a few points on the third line. Jason Banks

 

Fantasy Outlook: D+

 

Has the ability to be productive if he finally makes the NHL, it is more likely he is a mid-season recall for injuries.
