Dermott signed a one-year, $874,125 contract extension with the Maple Leafs on Friday.
Dermott drew into 56 games with the Leafs last season, notching four goals and 11 points while posting a plus-14 rating. The 23-year-old will likely continue to rotate in and out of the lineup as Toronto's seventh defenseman in 2020-21, so he won't be a viable fantasy option.
Dermott delivered two assists Saturday in a 4-2 win over the Canucks.
Dermott snapped a six-game point drought, but the points are just his second and third in his last 23 games. He has offensive upside, but right now, he's just not showing it. And that makes Dermott pretty much useless in single-year leagues.
Dermott (illness) was minus-2 and logged 19:33 of ice time in Monday's 5-3 loss to Florida.
Dermott was back in the lineup after missing Saturday's contest against Ottawa, taking a regular shift on Toronto's second defensive pairing with Tyson Barrie. Dermott, who was held without a point or a shot on a goal, has four goals and four assists in 39 games this season.
Dermott (illness) is expected to play in Monday's game against the Panthers, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports.
Dermott was with his usual defensive partner Tyson Barrie during line rushes, indicating he's ready to play after dealing with an illness. The 23-year-old has one goal while averaging 18:32 of ice time in his past 10 games.
Dermott (illness) will be a game-time decision for Monday's clash with Florida, despite telling reporters he was healthy and available, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports.
The Leafs will have seven blueliners for warmups and then will make a decision about whether Dermott can play. The 22-year-old skated in the second pairing at practice and figures to bump Martin Marincin from the lineup if given the green light.
Dermott (illness) will play in Monday's game versus the Panthers, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports.
Dermott missed Saturday's win over Ottawa due to sickness, but he skated Monday morning and is good to go. Injuries on Toronto's blue line have increased Dermott's duties lately, as he's averaged 20:04 over the last seven games, although it's resulted in no points.
Dermott (illness) won't play in Saturday's matchup versus the Senators, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.
Dermott will sit out for the first time since October after missing Friday's practice with a sickness. This won't impact fantasy gamers much because Dermott has just eight points over 38 games. Martin Marincin will bump into the lineup in Dermott's place.
Dermott is under the weather and missed Friday's practice session, James Mirtle of The Athletic reports.
Dermott is currently bogged down in a nine-game pointless streak and is averaging a mere 15:35 of ice time on the year. At this point, the blueliner may be hard pressed to match the 17 points he put up last year, especially if he misses any significant time due to injury/illness. If the 22-year-old can't play against the Senators on Saturday, Martin Marincin could slot back into the lineup.
Dermott has one assist in his last 10 games.
We like his upside, but it's remarkable that he hasn't managed to pick up even a few secondary assists playing with as many studs as he does. Right now, Dermott isn't even fantasy filler until he can take his game to the next level. Six points in 26 games just isn't enough.
Dermott scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 6-1 dismantling at the hands of the Flyers.
Dermott's tally was the lone bright spot in an otherwise forgettable game for the Maple Leafs. The 22-year-old is averaging just 14:24 of ice time in 16 appearances this season. In those outings, the blueliner has recorded three goals, two assists and 25 shots to provide solid mid-range fantasy value.
Dermott scored his first goal of the season in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Flyers on Saturday.
It was his first point since his return from injury five games ago. Dermott's smooth skating and intelligence will make him a top-four guy some day. For now, he's a bottom-pairing defender and just fantasy filler for guys who are injured.
Dermott (shoulder) has received medical clearance and will be in the lineup against Washington on Tuesday, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports.
Dermott will need to be activated off non-roster injured reserve prior to puck drop, which likely means the team will place John Tavares (finger) on retroactive IR in order to stay roster compliant. In 64 appearances last year, Dermott notched four goals and 13 assists and may be hard pressed to reach the 20-point mark this year as well.
Dermott (shoulder) was designated for injured reserve Monday.
Dermott is expected to miss the first 12-14 games of the season, so his placement on injured reserve shouldn't come as a surprise. In the blueliner's stead, Justin Holl and Timothy Liljegren both earned a spot on the 23-man roster, with one of them likely headed for the minors once Dermott is given the all-clear.
Dermott (shoulder) is slated to be sidelined for the first 12-14 games of the season according to coach Mike Babcock, David Alter of The Canadian Press reports.
After undergoing shoulder surgery, Dermott was expected to be out of action for six months, but this updated timeline from Babcock could see the blueliner return in late October. Dermott's vacated spot on the blue line will be a hotly contested training camp battle, with Jordan Schmaltz, Ben Harpur and Justin Holl all in the mix. In 64 games last season, Dermott notched four goals and 13 helpers, both career highs, and he should be able to push for the 20-point mark despite his late start to the year.
Dermott will undergo shoulder surgery Friday and is expected to be sidelined for a minimum of six months.
Dermott missed 14 games in March due to a shoulder injury, and he simply wasn't the same player after making his return to the lineup for the end of the regular season and Toronto's first-round matchup with Boston. The hope is that Friday's procedure will permanently correct the issue, but it will cost Dermott the first month of the 2019-20 campaign at a minimum.
Dermott (rest) was back at practice Monday ahead of Thursday's Game 1 clash with Boston, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports.
Dermott -- who was held out of the regular-season finale -- was back at it Monday alongside Jake Gardiner (rest) on the Leafs' third pairing. The 21-year-old set career highs in goals (four), assists (13) and shots (98) this season, despite averaging just 17:18 of ice time. The Ontario native should provide solid mid-range fantasy value in the postseason as a depth blue-line scoring option.
Dermott will be a healthy scratch Saturday against the Canadiens, according to Scott Wheeler of The Athletic.
Dermott is simply being rested for the playoffs, but the decision to sit him was probably made easier by the fact that he recently overcame a shoulder injury. The second-year defenseman finishes with four goals and 13 assists over 64 games.
Dermott (shoulder) will slot back into the lineup Saturday against Ottawa, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports.
Dermott and the Leafs were aiming for a Saturday return, and now it has been confirmed. The Ontario native last played Feb. 27 and may have some rust to shake off. On the season, Dermott has 17 points (four goals, 13 assists) and he's averaging 17:18 of ice time through 60 contests.
Coach Mike Babcock relayed Thursday that Dermott (shoulder) should return to the lineup for Saturday's game against the Senators, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.
Dermott last played in a game Feb. 27, so he may have some rust to knock off initially. Regardless, his absence from the power play limits the second-year blueliner's upside from a fantasy perspective. He was paired with Martin Marincin during practice Thursday, aligning him to draw in there for his return.
Dermott (shoulder) practiced in a full contact sweater Monday and coach Mike Babcock confirmed that he's been cleared for contact, Kristen Shilton of TSN Sports reports.
Dermott has cleared a major hurdle in his recovery from a shoulder injury that's kept him sidelined since Feb. 27, though he'll likely require a few practice sessions to get back up to game speed. Babcock had no update on fellow injured Leafs blueliner Jake Gardiner (back), so Dermott could slot into Gardiner's usual spot if he rejoins the lineup first.
