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.

DOttawa Senators
March 21, 2019
DeMelo's fourth goal was all the Senators could muster in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Flames.
ANALYSIS
DeMelo has picked up a goal and four assists in his last three games, as well as 10 blocked shots in that span. His tally Thursday gives him a second consecutive 20-point season, reaching the mark in 69 contests.

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.
