2019 Fantasy Outlook
There's hardly any buzz surrounding De La Rose -- a forward who has averaged 0.16 points per game in his five-year career -- but the Swede is driven and has a penchant for delivering hits. Detroit scooped the 6-foot-3, 216-pound grinder off waivers (via Montreal) just weeks into the 2018-19 campaign, with De La Rose posting three goals, six assists and a minus-13 rating though 60 games. A heart issue impeded the center's progress last season, so he underwent minor surgery in April to address the matter. All signs point to the pivot starting his sixth NHL season with the Red Wings rather than AHL Grand Rapids, though he can be safely bypassed in all drafts as a bottom-six skater with a limited offensive toolkit.

Factors into two goals
CDetroit Red Wings
October 12, 2019
De La Rose found twine and pitched in an assist in Saturday's 5-2 home loss to the Maple Leafs.
ANALYSIS
Oddly enough, the fourth line from each team created the game's first two goals, as De La Rose's first marker of the season was equalized by a slick backhand tally from Nick Shore. De La Rose has a two-game point streak going, but he doesn't play enough to justify picking him up in fantasy leagues.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2013
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.
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.
