  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Notches first points since return

    DeMelo served two assists in a 5-3 win over the Kraken on Thursday.

    DeMelo helped out on Dominic Toninato's shorthanded goal in the first period before assisting on Kyle Connor's game-ender. The defenseman was brought off the IR (lower-body injury) on Feb. 2, and had not scored in the five games since until this performance.

  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Activated from IR

    DeMelo (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    DeMelo practiced in a regular jersey Monday, indicating he is trending in the right direction in his return from injury. The 28-year-old has missed the last five games, but it seems likely he could return Tuesday versus the Wild.

  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Ditches non-contact sweater

    DeMelo (lower body) practiced in a regular jersey Monday, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports.

    While it's far from a guarantee, the fact that DeMelo was cleared for contact is certainly a step in the right direction. If the defenseman is held out versus the Flyers on Tuesday, he will have until after the All-Star break to get back to 100 percent.

  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Still sidelined Tuesday

    DeMelo (lower body) won't be an option against the Panthers on Tuesday, though coach Dave Lowry still classified the blueliner as day-to-day, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports.

    DeMelo has just one point in his last 21 games, so few fantasy players should be impacted by his continued absence. Even once cleared to play, DeMelo figures to remain a low-end fantasy target.

  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Moves to injured reserve

    DeMelo (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

    DeMelo won't be eligible to return until next Tuesday's game versus the Flyers. The 28-year-old defenseman has just four points in 36 contests, so he's unlikely to be missed much in fantasy.

  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Ruled out Sunday

    DeMelo (lower body) was ruled out for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh, Sara Orlesky of TSN.ca reports.

    DeMelo has averaged 16:09 of ice time and tallied four points over 36 appearances this season. An update on the 28-year-old's status should be available prior to Tuesday's tilt versus Florida.

  • 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.

    DeMelo has averaged 16:40 of ice time and logged one assist through 10 appearances since the end of November.

  • 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 TSN.ca 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: Assists on opening tally

    DeMelo produced an assist, two shots on goal and a pair of hits in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Canucks.

    DeMelo helped out on Kyle Connor's goal at 7:48 of the first period. The 28-year-old DeMelo hasn't done much on offense this season with eight assists in 51 outings. The stay-at-home blueliner has added 76 hits, 57 blocked shots, 20 PIM and a plus-8 rating.

  • 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.
