2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Canadiens signed De La Rose to a two-year. $1.8 million contract during the offseason, an affordable contract for a player profiling as a bottom-six center. For the first time in De La Rose's career, the Swede spent an entire season in the NHL, finishing with a career-high 12 points and four goals in 55 games. He opened on the fourth line, but spent ample minutes with Alex Galchenyuk and Artturi Lehkonen, a contributing factor to his career-high numbers. He won't directly make anyone better offensively, but his defensive conscience allows better-skilled players to focus on what they do best, as was the case at the World Hockey Championships when he joined Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson for Team Sweden. With Paul Byron (shoulder) and Andrew Shaw (knee) hampered by injuries, De La Rose could slot in as a top-six forward to begin the season but will eventually fall back down the depth chart, into a more appropriate bottom-six role.

Undergoes minor surgery

De La Rose said Monday that he underwent minor heart surgery but is expected to be cleared for offseason workouts and training camp, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
De La Rose was diagnosed with an accelerated heartbeat in March, but this news is certainly positive for his overall health going forward. The Swede and the team will likely take a cautious approach, but all signs point to a healthy 2019-20 return. De La Rose only accumulated nine points while averaging 11:26 of ice time in 60 games this year.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2013
De La Rose nailed down a spot on Montreal's roster and will open the season, centering the fourth line. He and Torrey Mitchell are "equals" in the words of head coach Claude Julien. Both are responsible, three-zone players, and can play in shorthanded situations, but it's De La Rose who has the edge offensively. He had spent a couple of seasons on the border of the AHL/NHL, but was able to spend a relatively full developmental season in the AHL last year, giving him a chance to develop his offense. He had a career-high 31 points in 62 games.
De La Rose, taken by Montreal in the second round (34th overall) of the 2013 draft, is an 18-year-old forward who has played the last two seasons against older competition in Sweden. He has power forward potential if he can develop some finish offensively. De La Rose plays hard; it's the only way he knows. The Canadiens may have something with De La Rose if his offense matures. He'll play all 200 feet and is considered a good glue guy, the type that will find jobs in NHL rooms.
