2020 Fantasy Outlook
De Haan was limited to a career-worst six points in just 29 games in 2019-20, with shoulder surgery in December bringing his year to an early end. He also made nine appearances during the Blackhawks' postseason run, generating a single assist. The 29-year-old will likely see bottom-four usage on the blue line, but he should be a regular fixture in a lineup lacking proven options. If he can get back to his usual self, the shutdown defender should top 10 points while adding a plethora of hits and decent blocked shot totals in 2020-21. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
De Haan's running out of time to return to action with the 2020-21 campaign winding down. His last appearance came April 21, when de Haan skated just 3:50 before leaving the game due to his hip injury flaring up.

De Haan was traded from Carolina to Chicago this offseason, and he should bring a much-needed steady defensive presence to the Blackhawks' blue line. That said, defense doesn't win fantasy championships, and de Haan has eclipsed 16 points only once in his career. The 28-year-old blueliner could also miss the first few weeks of the season, as he's recovering from May shoulder surgery. Once he suits up, de Haan should be a nice source of blocks and hits -- he's blocked at least 190 shots twice in his career and dished out a career-best 187 hits last season.
After spending his first five seasons with the Islanders, de Haan signed a four-year, $18.2 million deal with division foe Carolina. The Hurricanes also traded for Dougie Hamilton, and it's very possible de Haan will be paired with the fellow veteran this season. Due to a dislocated shoulder, de Haan was limited to 33 games in 2017-18 and notched 12 points -- including just one goal. The 27-year-old has never been an offensive machine, but in his last full season with the Isles, he bagged five goals and 25 points with a plus-15 rating. As long as he returns healthy as expected, owners can expect similar production this season and perhaps an even better showing in the plus-minus as he's removed from the putrid Islanders defense.
The 12th overall pick in 2009, de Haan didn't show the Islanders much until last year, when he set new personal bests across the board with five goals, 20 assists, a plus-15 rating, 116 shots and 36 PIM. That earned him a one-year deal to stay in New York, and he'll approach the 2017-18 campaign with plenty of incentive to build on last season’s performance. It’s not unusual for blueliners to mature on offense in their mid-20s, but if de Haan wants to do so, he'll need to win back a significant power-play role after averaging just 37 seconds with the man advantage last year. That may not be difficult to do, as it’s easy to argue that he’s the second-most-talented member of the Isles’ blue line, so continued growth into the 30-plus-point range is well within reach for the 26-year-old, who'll be available quite cheaply on draft day in most fantasy formats.
When the Islanders traded up to grab de Haan in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, he was viewed as a skilled defenseman who could lead the rush out of his zone. Several shoulder injuries have set him back, but even when healthy, de Haan has shown little to no offensive upside at the NHL level. With the Isles having upgraded their defense the past couple of seasons and with more prospects on the way, de Haan is no longer seen as a building block for the organization, but rather as a bottom pair defender.
De Haan proved to the Islanders last season that when he stays healthy, he has the talent to compete at the NHL level. He’s always had the reputation of being a good puck-moving defenseman, but his slight build always seemed to come with skepticism that he’d be able to make it through the rigors of an NHL season. Those doubts will persist in some minds, but he still figures to slot in as a first- or second-pair defenseman for the Islanders this season, with duties on the top power-play unit perhaps awaiting. By season’s end, de Haan could develop into a quality depth blueliner for a fantasy squad, but he’s more than likely someone to target next season, assuming he can take that next step and survive for 82 games.
The knock on de Haan ever since he was drafted by the Isles has been that he is undersized and wouldn't be able to handle the defensive rigors of playing everyday in the NHL. Unfortunately for de Haan and the Isles, those prophecies seemed to have come to fruition as he has had multiple surgeries. Although de Haan will once again be given a chance to make the team out of traning camp, another season - hopefully an entire one - at the AHL level is much more likely.
The knock on de Haan ever since he was drafted in the first-round by the Isles is that he wasn't big enough to take the pounding at the NHL level. So far he's proven that prediction to be correct as he has struggled to stay healthy at the AHL level having already suffered several injuries to his shoulder in particular. Still, the Isles are painfully thin on defense and de Haan will get every chance to make the team out of camp, but the odds of him playing an entire season and staying in one piece aren't good. de Haan registered 16 points in 56 games with Bridgeport last season in the AHL.
De Haan was the Islanders' surprise pick in the first round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft; surprise in that although De Haan has the skills to play at any level, he is slight of build and could have a hard time staying healthy in the NHL. He has already proven to be injury prone in the OHL, missing games with both knee and shoulder problems. If he can bulk up and play in the NHL than De Haan can be a steady defenseman who skates well and can move the puck out of the zone seemingly at will.
The Islanders traded up in the first round of the 2009 NHL draft in order to grab De Haan. He is a skilled offensive defenseman who excels at leading the rush out of the defensive zone. Two problems however have slowed his progressions. One, he was only 165 pounds when drafted so he needs to work on his upper body strength, and two, he suffered a shoulder injury that cost him most of last season.
The Isles shocked some people on draft day when they moved up twice in the draft to select DeHaan 12th overall. He was expected to be available later in the first round, but the Isles envision him as the future quarterback of their power-play units and didn't want to lose him. There are some concerns about his size (5-foot-11, 165 pounds), but his passing skills and hockey sense make him the best prospect on defense for the Isles (and don't forget he played with John Tavares for a while at Oshawa (OHL) this past season). He needs some time to mature, but he could turn out to be a very good contributor.
