Ouellet garnered a two-year contract extension from the Red Wings in an offseason that tested GM Ken Holland's cap-crunching ability, which shows just how much the defenseman is valued. The Frenchman plays a composed and patient game, and his output of 25 assists in 61 appea...

Ouellet, a rookie defenseman, has played the past two games after being a healthy scratch in the previous five. However, veteran blueliner Niklas Kronwall (knee) is reportedly expected to return soon, and we believe that could lead to a reduction in playing time for Ouellet or an assignment to the minors.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

Since he ran out of options and is no longer exempt from waivers, this could be the season that the Red Wings rip the training wheels off Ouellet, a second-round (48th overall) draft pick from 2011. In both the juniors and minor leagues, the Frenchman proved to be a sound distributor from the blue line. He tallied four goals and 25 helpers with AHL Grand Rapids last season, a fine complement to his plus-18 rating. The offseason departure of Kyle Quincey has opened a roster spot for Ouellet, so now it will be up to him to seize the opportunity. It doesnít hurt that he has been involved in postseason play in all eight seasons below the NHL level. Keep tabs on Ouellet as a late-round sleeper in fantasy drafts. With Doug Houda taking stepping in to overhaul Detroitís blue line, Ouellet should get every opportunity to showcase his talents and wind up with meaningful playing time in 2016-17.

2014-15

Ouellet failed to score in five games with the Red Wings, but recorded 17 in 70 games with the Grand Rapids Griffins in 2013-14. He's one of the better defensive prospects Detroit has, and he will be one of the first blue line call-ups when injuries arrive. Keep your eye on him from the waiver wire.

2013-14

Ouellet has shown promise in the QMJHL the last four years and should find his way to the AHL in the near future.
