  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Clears COVID-19 protocols

    DeMelo exited the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Thursday, per Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun.

    DeMelo has averaged 15:38 of ice time and has recorded four points over 32 appearances this season. He will return from protocols having missed one game. Due to DeMelo's return, Nate Schmidt will likely see a reduction in minutes from his last outing.

  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Game-time decision Thursday

    Coach Dave Lowry said DeMelo (COVID-19) will be a game-time decision Thursday in Detroit, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports.

    The defenseman has been in COVID-19 protocols since last Thursday. DeMelo's being a game-time decision suggests he's cleared protocols but may not be conditioned to take the ice Thursday. If unavailable Thursday, he'd presumably re-enter the lineup Saturday versus Ottawa.

  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    DeMelo was placed on the Jets' COVID-19 protocols list Thursday and will not play against the Avalanche, per Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun.

  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Puts up helper in overtime win

    DeMelo notched an assist, three hits, two blocked shots and a minus-2 rating in Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over the Golden Knights.

    DeMelo helped out on a Paul Stastny goal in the third period. The assist snapped a 15-game point drought for DeMelo, who is typically more of a defensive presence on the Jets' blue line. The 28-year-old is up to four points, 40 hits, 33 blocks, 28 shots on net and a plus-2 rating through 31 contests. With such limited offense, he's not much of a factor in fantasy.

  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Points in consecutive outings

    DeMelo registered an assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Oilers.

    DeMelo has points in consecutive games for the first time since the end of the regular season last year. This season, he's produced three points, 19 hits, 18 blocked shots, 13 shots on net and a plus-4 rating in 15 contests. He's never had more than 22 points in a season, and the early returns in 2021-22 haven't indicated a breakout is coming for the Ontario native.

  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Was hoping to return for Game 6

    DeMelo was dealing with a groin injury and was hoping to be back in the lineup for Game 6 or 7, Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

    Considering DeMelo was looking to play again in this series, his groin injury shouldn't be an issue heading into the 2021-22 campaign. For the second straight year, DeMelo failed to score a goal but still tally nine assists, 76 hits and 58 blocks in 52 games while averaging 16:58 of ice time. DeMelo could provide some value in formats that prioritize defensive stats but should otherwise be considered a low-end fantasy option.

  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Facing one-week absence

    According to coach Paul Maurice, DeMelo (lower body) is expected to miss about a week, Sara Orlesky of reports.

    In the opening-round series against the Oilers, DeMelo averaged 26:00 of ice time through four games while dishing out 12 hits and nine blocks. While the 28-year-old defenseman is unlikely to directly impact fantasy players given his limited offensive upside, his absence will stretch the Jets' defensive depth and could potentially lead to netminder Connor Hellebuyck facing some extra rubber. While not confirmed by Maurice, Jordie Benn is likely to step into DeMelo's spot in the lineup while Tucker Poolman could see a significant uptick in minutes.

  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Early exit Wednesday

    DeMelo (lower body) won't return to Wednesday's Game 1 versus the Canadiens.

    DeMelo suffered the injury in the first period, and it's not encouraging that he was ruled out for the game prior to the first intermission. The 28-year-old mainly plays a defensive role for the Jets -- he had 12 hits, nine blocked shots and a plus-2 rating without recording a point in a four-game sweep of the Oilers in the first round. If he's not ready to play in Friday's Game 2, Jordie Benn would likely enter the lineup, while Tucker Poolman could move into a top-four role.

  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Nabs shorthanded assist

    DeMelo produced a shorthanded assist, two shots on goal, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Flames.

    DeMelo set up Adam Lowry's second tally of the contest at 5:33 of the second period. The 28-year-old DeMelo has two helpers in his last three outings, but he went 13 games without a point before he reacquainted himself with the scoresheet. The Ontario native isn't known for producing much offense. He has only seven helpers, 37 shots, 55 blocked shots, 69 hits and a plus-7 rating through 48 appearances.

    DeMelo recorded an assist, three shots on goal, a plus-4 rating and two PIM in Monday's 5-1 win over the Flames.

    DeMelo set up Nate Thompson for the Jets' first of five unanswered tallies Monday. The 27-year-old DeMelo has been quiet on the scoresheet this year. He has five assists in 32 appearances. The Ontario native has added 50 hits, 41 blocked shots, 26 shots on net, 12 PIM and a plus-7 rating in a mainly defensive role.

  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Will play Saturday

    DeMelo (personal) will be back in action versus the Senators on Saturday, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.

    DeMelo didn't travel with the team after the birth of his child but with the Jets back at home, he will slot back into the lineup. Logan Stanley is a candidate to be relegated to a spot on the bench with DeMelo back, though Ville Heinola could also be an option.

  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Rejoins team Sunday

    DeMelo (personal) was back with the Jets for Sunday's practice, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.

    DeMelo (personal) won't travel with the team on its upcoming three-game road trip, Sara Orlesky of reports.

  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Won't play Thursday

    DeMelo (personal) won't be in the lineup for Thursday's Opening Night clash with Calgary, Sara Orlesky of reports.

  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Signs four-year extension

    DeMelo agreed to terms on a four-year, $12 million contract with Winnipeg on Wednesday.

    DeMelo was brought in by the Jets at the trade deadline to bolster their blue line for a postseason run. In 14 appearances for Winnipeg, including the playoffs, the Ontario native garnered zero points, 16 shots and 20 hits while averaging 21:12 of ice time. DeMelo's offensive upside is likely in the 20-25 point range, but he'll certainly help stabilize the Jets defensively.

  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Packs bags for Winnipeg

    The Senators traded DeMelo to the Jets for a 2020 third-round pick Tuesday.

    The Jets have been desperate for defensive depth after trading Jacob Trouba to the Rangers and seeing Dustin Byfuglien not report. DeMelo will add just that, as he's averaged 19:55 per game this year and accrued 10 points through 49 games. The right-handed shooter is a strong defender, too, with a 53.1 Corsi For percentage. The 26-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent in July. It's unclear if he'll be ready for Tuesday's game versus the Kings.

  • Senators' Dylan DeMelo: Strong effort away from Ottawa

    DeMelo compiled an assist, four hits and four blocked shots in Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Maple Leafs.

    DeMelo has three points (all assists) over the last four games. The ex-Shark is averaging a career high in ice time at 20:01 to complement his plus-7 rating. Look no further if you're seeking a burgeoning defender for fantasy purposes.

  • Senators' Dylan DeMelo: Ready to rock

    DeMelo (finger) will return to the lineup for Tuesday's game against Washington.

    DeMelo is expected to return to a prominent role following his 10-game absence, skating with Thomas Chabot on the Senators' top pairing against the Capitals. The 26-year-old blueliner has been a solid shut-down option for Ottawa this season, recording a plus-7 rating in 32 games, but he's only picked up six points over that span, so he can be ignored in standard fantasy formats.
