  • Coyotes' Jason Demers: Stuck in dry spell
    By RotoWire Staff

    Demers has registered just a single assist and 11 shots through his past 10 games. This recent slump is even more frustrating because it follows an excellent 10-game stretch in which Demers registered two goals, eight points and 20 shots. However, this is likely more the result of Arizona's shortcomings than Demers' play. Expect the inconsistency to continue, which makes it difficult to rely on the 29-year-old defenseman in the majority of fantasy formats.

  • Demers recorded two assists to extend his point streak to four games during Thursday's 5-4 loss to Buffalo. The 28-year-old defenseman is having a nice offensive run to start the year with two goals, eight points and 30 shots through 14 games. Demers has logged a career-high 2:29 on the power play and is well on his way to his best offensive season. He also moves the fantasy needle in the peripheral categories, so the first-year Coyote is worth a look in most settings.

  • Demers recorded an assist and logged 22:45 of ice time (5:01 with the man advantage) during Thursday's 5-4 loss to Dallas. Demers has found himself on the No. 1 power-play unit of late, and while Thursday's helper didn't come with the man advantage, that development is a clear boost to his fantasy outlook. He's now registered a point and a minor penalty in three consecutive games, and his 17 shots, 11 hits and 11 blocked shots are respectable peripheral marks. Demers offers a serviceable cross-category profile in depper settings.

  • Coyotes' Jason Demers: Dealt to Arizona
    By RotoWire Staff

    Demers was traded to the Coyotes on Saturday, with forward Jamie McGinn moving to the Panthers, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports. This move gives the 'Yotes a stable presence on the back line, and it means prized sophomore Jakob Chychrun (knee) won't have to rush in his recovery. Demers added nine goals and 19 assists for the Panthers last season, albeit with a career-worst minus-14 rating. Don't expect that latter figure to improve given that there's so much youth in the desert, but fantasy owners investing in Demers should know that he's capable of working on the power play and delivering decent totals in hits and blocked shots.

  • The Panthers elected to leave Demers available for Wednesday's expansion draft, TSN reports. Demers' exclusion from the list is a bit of a surprise given his recent long-term deal with the Panthers. However, the club elected to retain the services of four other defensemen instead. It's not guaranteed he will be headed to Vegas, but he's one of the top names made available for the Golden Knights in the draft and is coming off a 28-point season for Florida.
