2018 Fantasy Outlook
Demelo enjoyed a breakout campaign in 2018-19, setting career highs in assists (20), points (20) and games played (63) while averaging 14:12 of ice time per contest. The 25-year-old blueliner figures to see an uptick of ice time after joining the Senators via trade, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him surpass the 20-point threshold for the first time in his career -- although he still is unlikely to produce enough offense to warrant consideration in most fantasy formats.

Scores two points against Sabres
DOttawa Senators
November 2, 2018
DeMelo scored a goal and added an assist Thursday in a 4-2 win over Buffalo.
ANALYSIS
With two goals, DeMelo has now matched his career high in goals for the season, which says a lot about how rarely he found the net in San Jose. In Ottawa, however, he's off to a pretty solid start with seven points in 12 games, which should have him well on track to top the 20 points he scored last year.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2014
DeMelo is still looking for his first full-time NHL job, and this could be the year he does it. He posted eight points in 25 games last season, but the 24-year-old wasn't able to make his presence known on the power play. He'll likely start as a third-rotation blueliner on a strong defensive corps. Keep an eye on how he develops for future fantasy seasons.
DeMelo made an impact as a rookie pro last year. He registered two goals and 22 assists, along with 105 shots, through 68 games for the AHL Sharks. He's a solid defenseman with decent offensive upside. He may make his NHL debut this season, but it's more likely he'll be handed the reins with the baby Sharks instead. We're hoping to see another step in development. We'll start paying closer attention to a possible fantasy future then.
