2019 Fantasy Outlook
After notching 20 points in 63 games with the Sharks in 2017-18, Demelo was traded to the Senators as part of the blockbuster Erik Karlsson deal ahead of the 2018-19 campaign. The 26-year-old went on to set career highs in goals (four), points (22), games played (77), shots (109), blocks (130) and hits (121) during his first year with the rebuilding Senators. The 2011 sixth-round pick doesn't have a very high ceiling, but he should continue to see ample playing time with Ottawa as part of their top four in 2019-20. Read Past Outlooks

Picks up fighting major
DOttawa Senators
October 12, 2019
DeMelo's lone contribution in Saturday's 4-2 win over Tampa Bay was a first-period fight against Yanni Gourde.
ANALYSIS
DeMelo has operated as more of a defensive-focused blueliner so far, which is helpful to the Senators but not so much for fantasy owners. Don't expect much to change over the course of the season, so DeMelo isn't likely to be much use to your squad.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2014
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.
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.
