Deslauriers finished his first season in Anaheim with seven goals, six assists and 137 hits across 59 games.
The Quebec native just completed his sixth full NHL campaign, and he's piled up triple-digit hits in each. Deslauriers will probably never exhibit the same level of physicality as his eye-popping 261-hit effort as a rookie back in 2014-15 -- and considering his unspectacular offensive numbers, there isn't much else to see here from a fantasy perspective.
Deslauriers posted a natural hat trick in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Senators.
Deslauriers' three goals came in a span of 9:04 during the first period, staking the Ducks to a 4-0 lead. The 29-year-old forward is much more known for physical play -- he has 13 points to go with 136 hits and 92 PIM in 58 appearances this season. This was likely just a blip on the radar for Deslauriers, who typically holds a fourth-line role.
Deslauriers potted a goal and served up two hits in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Oilers.
Deslauriers is now at nine points, 117 hits, 82 PIM and a minus-4 rating through 51 games this season. The 29-year-old continues to fill a fourth-line role, but Deslauriers probably shouldn't be counted on for regular contributions on the scoresheet.
Deslauriers signed a two-year contract extension worth $1 million AAV with the Ducks on Saturday.
Deslauriers was in and out of the lineup to start the year, but he's played 33 straight games dating back to Nov. 25. The 27-year-old Deslauriers doesn't score much, but he's quite physical with 108 hits and 80 PIM, including 12 fights, across 45 games.
Deslauriers picked up an assist and two shots on goal in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Coyotes.
Deslauriers snapped a 13-game point drought with the helper. In that span, he churned out 29 hits and 17 shots on goal. The 28-year-old now has six points through 38 contests, which is better than what he managed in 48 outings last year. Deslauriers has added 90 hits and 68 PIM in a fairly consistent fourth-line role.
Deslauriers had a fighting major in Thursday's 3-0 loss to the Stars.
Deslauriers fought the Stars' Jamie Oleksiak right after the faceoff following Alexander Radulov's tally in the second period. Deslauriers doesn't do much on offense -- he has only five points in 32 contests this season. However, he's up to 66 PIM and 80 hits, but that's likely not enough to earn even deep-format fantasy relevance, especially since he'll likely start losing playing time when the Ducks get to full health.
Deslauriers produced an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 4-2 win over the Kings.
The Ducks' fourth line opened the scoring, with Deslauriers relaying a Carter Rowney pass to Derek Grant for the tally. The physical winger is up to four points, 46 hits and 24 PIM in 16 contests this season.
Deslauriers scored a goal on two shots and delivered four hits in Monday's 5-2 loss to Washington.
Deslauriers found the net with just under two minutes left in the third period, driving to the net to re-direct a Ryan Getzlaf pass. It was the first goal in 11 games this season for the first-year Duck, who entered the night with just 24 career goals in 327 NHL games.
Deslauriers posted an assist, three hits and two PIM in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Blues.
Deslauriers set up Derek Grant's first of three goals in the contest. Deslauriers also got into a second-period scuffle with Oskar Sundqvist after the latter charged at John Gibson, with both skaters earning roughing minors. The 28-year-old winger has just two assists with 17 PIM and 26 hits in 10 appearances this year. He's a very clear fourth-line player on the rare occasion he's not in the press box.
Deslauriers registered an assist and six hits in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Jets.
Making just his fifth appearance of the year, Deslauriers finally put his name on the scoresheet with an assist on Derek Grant's game-winning goal. The 28-year-old winger was playing in place of Devin Shore, who was a healthy scratch for Tuesday's contest. Deslauriers has added 13 hits and five PIM in limited time this season, but he's not guaranteed to stay in the lineup long-term.
Deslauriers has been a healthy scratch for four of the Ducks' first six games of the campaign.
Deslauriers will be a healthy scratch more often than not in 2019-20, and won't pose much of an offensive threat when in the lineup, so he won't be worthy of consideration in daily or season-long fantasy formats this season.
Deslauriers was traded to the Ducks from the Canadiens in exchange for a fourth-round pick on Sunday.
Deslauriers should provide some cheap forward depth for the Ducks next season. However, he scored just five points in 48 games last season and has just 49 points in 317 career NHL contests. He shouldn't appear on too many fantasy radars even after the trade.
Deslauriers entered the active lineup for Thursday's loss to the Blue Jackets. He had one shot and two hits over 14:14 of ice time.
Deslauriers took the spot of Paul Byron, who was unavailable due to an upper-body injury suffered when he was on the receiving end of a beating from Florida's MacKenzie Weeger during Tuesday's game. It's likely Deslauriers got the nod due to the big, physical opponent, but there are other options for coach Claude Julien going forward. Depending on the matchup, Julien has Matthew Peca, Dale Weise and Charles Hudon as potential fill-ins.
Deslauriers last found the scoresheet back on Dec. 28.
The big-bodied forward doesn't often find the money columns on the game sheet, averaging a paltry 0.08 points per game. If your league rewards hits and penalty minutes, Deslauriers offers a smidgen of value. His style of play, while beneficial to Montreal's fourth line, carries close to no value in the fantasy world.
Deslauriers was a healthy scratch Saturday against Tampa Bay.
Deslauriers had scored in Friday's win over the Panthers, but his style is less suited to the high-flying Lightning. Matthew Peca drew into the active roster, giving coach Claude Julien a quicker skater for the fourth line.
Deslauriers scored a goal on two shots and had three hits in Friday's 5-3 win over Florida.
Deslauriers, who was tied up with the Panthers' Aaron Ekblad, managed to get a piece of Victor Mete's shot from the point and deflected it behind Roberto Luongo. It was his second goal of the season and the first since Nov. 10 for the fourth-liner. He endured a five-game stretch as a healthy scratch in December before replacing Charles Hudon the last two games.
Deslauriers had two shots and three hits over 8:24 of ice time in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win against Vegas.
Deslauriers had been a healthy scratch the last five games, but coach Claude Julien wanted a bigger, more physical presence in the lineup against a big hockey club like the Golden Knights. Deslauriers ranks second on the Habs with 73 hits, trailing only Jeff Petry, who has 100 but has played 12 more games than Deslauriers.
Deslauriers was a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against Carolina.
Coach Claude Julien made a couple of changes to his active roster following Tuesday's debacle in Minnesota, one of which was subbing in Matthew Peca for Deslauriers. The 7-1 loss to the Wild was a team effort, so the coach's decision isn't an indictment on Deslauriers. The move worked out well for Montreal, as Peca scored a second-period goal that sparked the Canadiens' offense in a 6-4 win.
Deslauriers delivered a game-high seven hits over 10:33 of ice time in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Stars.
Deslauriers has yet to find the scoresheet over five games in 2018, but has made an impact with the body. He has multiple hits in each game and 21 for the season, averaging a tick above four per game. At some point, coach Claude Julien may want more offensive finesse from the fourth line, but until then, Deslauriers will continue to rack up the body checks and bring energy to that unit.
Deslauriers laid down four hits in 10:01 of ice time in his 2018-19 season debut, a 4-3 overtime loss to Ottawa.
Deslauriers missed the start of the season with facial fractures stemming from a preseason fight. Clearly he's not ready to sacrifice his physical edge. The 27-year-old bruiser is aiming for his fourth 200-hit season in the last five years.
