Coyotes' Jason Demers: Trending in right direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Rick Tocchet relayed that Demers (oblique) is day-to-day after being a full participant in practice Wednesday, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.

The Coyotes don't play again until Saturday against the Canucks, so the 31-year-old blueliner will be closely monitored until that contest. However, he's certainly on the right track by practicing without limitations three days before the game. Demers is expected to return to the top four once he's ready to go.

Coyotes' Jason Demers: Week-to-week with oblique injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demers is dealing with an oblique injury that has him considered week-to-week, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Demers has already been designated for injured reserve, so he was expected to miss some time. Given his recovery timeline, the blueliner almost certainly won't be with the club for its upcoming four-game road trip. In 46 games this year, the Quebec native is still looking for his first goal and could miss the 20-point mark for a second straight season.

Coyotes' Jason Demers: Surfaces on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demers (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve, Matt Layman of reports.

The Coyotes have yet to release an expected timetable for Demers' recovery, but he'll miss the team's next two games at a minimum now that he's been placed on IR. Aaron Ness will round out Arizona's depth at defense until Demers is given the green light.

Coyotes' Jason Demers: Won't play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demers (lower body) won't be available for Tuesday's clash with Edmonton.

The specifics surrounding Demers' lower-body issue remain unclear, but the Coyotes will also be without Oliver Ekman-Larsson (lower body) for the game. With both players out, Ilya Lyubushkin and Aaron Ness will draw into the lineup as the team's bottom defensive pair. Expect another update regarding Demers' health ahead of Thursday's game against Carolina.

Coyotes' Jason Demers: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demers (undisclosed) is on the ice for warmups, indicating that he'll play in Saturday's game versus the Blackhawks, Richard Morin of The Arizona Republic reports.

Demers will not have to miss any time with the undisclosed injury. Expect him to play in his usual defense-first role in the contest.

Coyotes' Jason Demers: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demers (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's clash with Chicago, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Confirmation on Demers' status for Saturday's contest likely won't surface until the teams take the ice for pregame warmups. If he's unable to go, Jordan Oesterle will draw into the lineup against the Blackhawks.

Coyotes' Jason Demers: Offers helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demers recorded an assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Kings.

Demers has three assists through 11 games in January. The defenseman has managed only eight helpers to go with 68 hits, 62 blocked shots and 23 PIM in 45 contests this season. He's used mostly in a defensive role but could see a boost in ice time if Oliver Ekman-Larsson (lower body) ends up missing any games.

Coyotes' Jason Demers: Rare sight on scoresheet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demers picked up an assist, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Sharks.

Demers has just two helpers in 11 games since returning from a knee injury. He makes up the defensive half of the Coyotes' top pairing with Oliver Ekman-Larsson. Demers has just seven assists to go with 63 hits, 57 blocked shots and a plus-5 rating in 41 contests this season.

Coyotes' Jason Demers: Looks to be ready Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demers (knee) is expected to return to the lineup for Monday's game against the Predators, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.

Demers has spent the last six games on injured reserve, but the Coyotes will activate him from IR before Monday's contest. The 31-year-old blueliner doesn't have much fantasy upside with just five assists through 30 games, but he contributes well defensively with 42 hits and 41 blocked shots.

Coyotes' Jason Demers: Upgraded to day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demers (knee) is now considered day-to-day, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.

Demers has missed Arizona's last four games due to a knee injury, but he took part in Thursday's optional morning skate, so he should be ready to return sooner rather than later. Once he's given the green light, the 31-year-old will return to a top-four role for the Coyotes.

Coyotes' Jason Demers: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demers (knee) has been designated for injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

Considering Demers is expected to miss two weeks due to his knee injury, his placement on IR shouldn't come as a surprise. In 30 games this season, the blueliner has managed just five helpers, so his absence is unlikely to affect the majority of fantasy owners.

Coyotes' Jason Demers: Sidelined with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demers will be out for a minimum of two weeks after sustaining a knee injury during Sunday's 4-3 win over the Blackhawks, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

The two-week timeline means Demers will miss Arizona's next seven games, at a minimum. There's a chance the defenseman needs minor surgery, so don't expect to see the 31-year-old defenseman dressing anytime soon.

Coyotes' Jason Demers: Snags helper Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demers picked up an assist versus Columbus on Tuesday.

While not exactly a goal scorer, fans and fantasy owners alike will be disappointed in the fact that Demers remains goalless in 27 games this season. At this point, the blueliner will be hard pressed to reach the 20-point mark, a threshold he last reached in 2017-18, and he should be considered a low-end fantasy option in most formats.

Coyotes' Jason Demers: Returning against Capitals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demers (lower body) is in the lineup and will play Monday against Washington, Tom Gulitti of reports.

The veteran defenseman returns to a top-pairing role on Arizona's blue line following a two-game absence due to a lower-body injury. In 15 games this season, Demers has yet to score but does have three assists. Outside of deeper leagues, Demers isn't worthy of a spot on your fantasy squad.

Coyotes' Jason Demers: Tending toward playing Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demers (lower body) is considered a game-time decision for Monday's road game against the Capitals, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Although his status may not be revealed until warmups commence at 6:30 p.m. ET, Morgan notes that Demers appears ready to play. The 31-year-old has missed the last two contests. Demers shouldn't be a concern in the fantast realm since he has just three points in 15 games, but he's a sturdy blueliner with a 50.6 Corsi For percentage and 20 blocked shots this year.

Coyotes' Jason Demers: Sitting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demers (lower body) did not take part in warmup and will miss Saturday's game against Minnesota, Richard Morin of The Arizona Republic reports.

The 31-year-old defenseman will miss his second game due to a lower-body injury, but Demers' absence will go largely unnoticed in fantasy circles because of his limited production. He's managed a pedestrian three assists in 15 games this season. Ilya Lyubushkin will fill in for Demers on Saturday.

Coyotes' Jason Demers: Out against Columbus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demers (lower body) won't be available for Thursday's game against the Blue Jackets, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Demers is considered day-to-day with his lower-body injury, so he shouldn't be sidelined for long. Nonetheless, the veteran blueliner has only picked up three assists in 15 games this campaign, so his absence will go unnoticed in most fantasy circles.

Coyotes' Jason Demers: Three helpers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demers recorded three assists, including one short-handed, in Friday's 5-3 win over the Devils.

The 31-year-old defenseman had come into Friday scoreless through the first nine games of the season, but he broke out in a big way in New Jersey. Demers has never been a big offensive threat -- his career high of 34 points came back in 2013-14 -- but his spot on Arizona's top even-strength pairing does afford him occasional opportunities for productive performances.

Coyotes' Jason Demers: Still seeking first point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demers has gone scoreless through the first eight games of the campaign despite averaging 22:33 of ice time per contest.

Demers has been tasked with playing a shutdown role on the Coyotes' top pairing, and he's seeing minimal time on the man advantage, so opportunities to score will likely be few and far between for the 31-year-old in 2019-20.

Coyotes' Jason Demers: Posts assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demers picked up an assist and two blocked shots in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Golden Knights.

Demers improved to two goals and six helpers in 34 games this year, with three of his assists coming in his last four outings. The 30-year-old blueliner lost four months of the season to a knee injury, but that likely didn't have an effect on most fantasy owners' plans, as Demers is more of a defense-first player.
