Senators' Dylan DeMelo: Scores lone goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeMelo's fourth goal was all the Senators could muster in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Flames.

DeMelo has picked up a goal and four assists in his last three games, as well as 10 blocked shots in that span. His tally Thursday gives him a second consecutive 20-point season, reaching the mark in 69 contests.

Senators' Dylan DeMelo: Provides three helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeMelo exploded for three assists and five blocked shots in Wednesday's 7-4 loss to the Canucks.

He recently weathered a five-game pointless stretch, but DeMelo now has four helpers over his last two games. He's up to 19 points (three goals, 16 assists) in 68 games in his first year in Ottawa, just one point shy of his career high from last season with the Sharks. Potential fantasy owners can take note of his 105 hits and 112 blocks this season as added value in formats that score those categories.

Senators' Dylan DeMelo: Picks up assist in road win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeMelo recorded a power-play assist -- his 12th helper of the season -- in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Panthers.

It was DeMelo's first point in 15 games, and he now has 15 points in 61 games this season. The Sens' blueliner also logged a season-high 4:33 of power-play time in the win.

Senators' Dylan DeMelo: Notches helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeMelo registered an assist in Wednesday's 2-1 win over Anaheim.

DeMelo is on a three-game point steak (all assists) and has four helpers in his last five outings. The defenseman still hasn't scored a goal since Dec. 4, a stretch of 11 contests, but the fact that he is chipping in offensively makes him a decent mid-range fantasy option.

Senators' Dylan DeMelo: Activated for Friday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeMelo (upper body) will return Friday evening against the Devils.

DeMelo has officially been removed from injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site. The former Shark has been a pleasant surprise with three goals and five assists to complement a plus-9 rating that leads all Ottawa blueliners.

Senators' Dylan DeMelo: Could play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeMelo (upper body) is targeting a return to the lineup in Friday's matchup with New Jersey, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

DeMelo was on the ice at Monday's game-day skate in a non-contact sweater, but with several days of practice to get ready, the blueliner could be cleared prior to puck drop Friday. Considering he has just one point in his previous 18 outings, the Ontario native won't offer much in terms of fantasy value once ready to suit up.

Senators' Dylan DeMelo: Winds up on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeMelo (upper body) was placed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

The move means DeMelo will miss at least Ottawa's next three games. Considering the team has yet to put a timeline on the 25-year-old's return, DeMelo could be looking at an extended absence. In 30 games, the fourth-year pro has three goals and eight points and has posted a plus-9 rating. In a corresponding move, Ottawa recalled Stefan Elliott from AHL Belleville on Monday.

Senators' Dylan DeMelo: Nursing upper-body issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeMelo won't suit up for Sunday's game versus the Bruins due to an upper-body injury, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

DeMelo suffered his injury on a hit from Riley Sheahan during Saturday's game versus the Penguins. Coach Guy Boucher has no timeline for DeMelo's return. Erik Burgdoerfer will slot into the defensive rotation for the time being.

Senators' Dylan DeMelo: Scores in loss to Habs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeMelo notched a goal in the second period of a 5-2 loss to Montreal on Tuesday.

DeMelo has been a pleasant surprise for the Senators since coming over from San Jose, recording a plus-10 rating and scoring eight points, including a career high in goals. However, with three goals in 28 games, he still doesn't produce enough to be a valuable weapon in most leagues.

Senators' Dylan DeMelo: Scores two points against Sabres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeMelo scored a goal and added an assist Thursday in a 4-2 win over Buffalo.

With two goals, DeMelo has now matched his career high in goals for the season, which says a lot about how rarely he found the net in San Jose. In Ottawa, however, he's off to a pretty solid start with seven points in 12 games, which should have him well on track to top the 20 points he scored last year.

Senators' Dylan DeMelo: Picks up two assists in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeMelo registered two assists in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Bruins.

A season ago, as a member of the Sharks, DeMelo recorded 20 assists in 63 games, to go along with zero goals. While he has tickled the twine once already in 2018-19, the 25-year-old is a far more accomplished passer than he is a scorer. Look for him to continue featuring in Ottawa's lineup most evenings.

Senators' Dylan DeMelo: Dodges injury scare, ready for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeMelo will be able to play Thursday evening against host Chicago, despite getting hit in the face by a stick in the morning session, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

Packaged in the Erik Karlsson trade, DeMelo has moved from an offensively laden Sharks squad to the rebuilding Senators. However, he's projected to see an uptick in playing time with Ottawa, both at even strength and on the man advantage. DeMelo has 32 points (three goals, 29 assists) over 143 career contests.

Senators' Dylan DeMelo: Traded to Senators
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeMelo was shipped to Ottawa as part of a package to bring Erik Karlsson to San Jose, reports.

DeMelo's move is a bit of a surprise given that the Sharks signed him to a two-year extension in July, but with Karlsson donning teal, the 25-year-old became expendable and comes home to Ontario. He won't come close to replicating Karlsson's impact in Ottawa, but he did contribute 20 assists and block 70 shots, so if you're in a league that rewards defense, he'll have his opportunities to produce for you, as Ottawa's system and roster will likely lead to a lot of shots taken at the Senators' net.

Sharks' Dylan DeMelo: Earns new deal with Team Teal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeMelo signed a new two-year contract with the Sharks on Saturday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

DeMelo will remain in the Bay Area after testing the open market for nearly one week. While the defenseman failed to score on 34 shot attempts last season, DeMelo pitched in 20 assists to complement 75 hits and 70 blocked shots, keeping him relevant in deep fantasy settings.

Sharks' Dylan DeMelo: Bags apple in tough home loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeMelo collected a secondary assist in Monday's Game 2 loss to the Golden Knights.

This was the first point of the playoffs for DeMelo, who occupies a spot on the third defensive pair with Brenden Dillon. Naturally, both players are overlooked in the fantasy realm since they don't have a substantial role in the offense.

Sharks' Dylan DeMelo: Tallies two assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeMelo had two helpers in a 5-3 win over the Red Wings on Monday.

The assists have come fast and furious for DeMelo recently. He's tallied seven of them over his last five games, giving him 15 assists in 50 contests this season. Of course, he also has zero goals this year, and only three in his career.

Sharks' Dylan DeMelo: Dishes out three assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeMelo collected a career-high three assists and was a plus-4 in Thursday's win over the Blackhawks.

DeMelo hasn't been much of an offensive contributor on the third defensive pairing this season, notching 11 points (all assists) in 46 games. The 24-year-old has aided fantasy goers with 30 PIM, but the lack of consistent offensive production makes him one to avoid in most fantasy settings.

Sharks' Dylan DeMelo: Two-point outing in return to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeMelo (illness) recorded two assists, three shots and a plus-3 rating through 13:02 of ice time during Monday's 4-1 win over Los Angeles.

The 24-year-old defenseman missed the past three games because of flu-like symptoms, but he showed no ill-effects Monday. DeMelo averaged just 13:14 of ice time per contest entering this game, so considering his limited role, it's unlikely he's able to provide consistent offensive numbers moving forward. An increased role could land him on the fantasy radar, but it's probably best to take a wait-and-see approach in most settings for the time being.

Sharks' Dylan DeMelo: Activated from injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeMelo (illness) was brought off injured reserve Sunday and is expected to skate in Monday's tilt against Los Angeles.

DeMelo has now fully recovered from his flu-like symptoms and will likely return to skating on the third defensive pairing with Joakim Ryan. Prior to the sickness, the 24-year-old had notched five assists in 22 games, and he needs to collect just four more points the remainder of the season to set a new career high.

Sharks' Dylan DeMelo: Expected back Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sharks are expected to activate DeMelo (illness) from injured reserve ahead of Monday's game against the Kings, the Associated Press reports.

DeMelo has been sidelined since Jan. 4 with flu-like symptoms, missing the Sharks' last three games along the way. It sounds like he's drawing closer to full strength, so look for him to reclaim a regular spot on the Sharks' blue line during the upcoming week.
