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