RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Demers was a mainstay at the San Jose blue line for the first half of the 2013 season before a foot injury sidelined him in April. Up until that point, he was averaging 18:38 in ice time with a goal and two assists in those 22 games. That production is anemic compared to his previous 58 points in 183 games, so the question is out there -- was this an anomaly or has his role permanently changed? Honestly, we don't know the answer. We don't see why you'd want to take a risk on Demers now until the answer becomes clearer. Hes a young player whose role is sure to grow. But if it grows to the point of fantasy relevance, you can probably pick him up off waivers.

2012-13

Demers will battle Justin Braun for playing time this year. Both have offensive upside, but neither will get many opportunities to show it off in the 6/7 spot. Braun may have the initial edge to start in the top-six, but Demers will be barking at his tail the whole season. The Sharks' defense is so remarkably deep this year. He'll get a chance to play on the second power-play unit (that is, if he earns the job). but with Dan Boyle and Brent Burns as locks to run both units most nights, that ice time will be thin, too. However, don't ignore Demers entirely as there will come a point during the season where he'll go on a little offensive burst. Your team will benefit if you can catch that lightning in a bottle.

2011-12

With so many serviceable fantasy options making up the Sharks' roster, Demers tends to fly under the radar. But he took a big leap in 2010-11, notching 24 points (2 G, 22 A) to complement a shiny, plus-19 rating, the best of any Sharks skater. Also of significance, Demers saw his average ice time climb from 15:25 in 2009-10 to 19:29 last season. He's an emerging offensive threat on Team Teal's blue line and someone worth considering in the later rounds of standard fantasy leagues.

2010-11

Demers is arguably the fastest rising player dressed in teal. He had 17 helpers in his rookie season, while averaging 15:26 of ice time through 51 games. Better yet, the team from the Bay Area secured his services with a two-year contract extension this past offseason, a likely indication that Team Teal has big plans for No. 60 in 2010-11. He has sleeper status written all over.
