2018 Fantasy Outlook
Santini's still trying to earn consistent playing time at the NHL level, having dressed for 38 games with the Devils in 2016-17 and 36 last season. The New York native hasn't flashed much offensive ability as a pro, logging 17 NHL points to go with just five points in 27 career AHL appearances. Santini appears destined to serve as either a third-pairing guy or the seventh defenseman this season; either way, his fantasy value should be very limited. Read Past Outlooks

Jaw
November 8, 2018
Santini (jaw) rejoined his teammates at practice Thursday, skating with a full face shield, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Santini may or may not be ready for game action, but it's encouraging that he was able to rejoin his teammates in Toronto as they prepare for the second leg of a three-game swing through Canada. He broke his jaw in his season debut against the Flyers back on Oct. 20.

2014 Fantasy Outlook
While fellow Devils top blueline prospect Damon Severson has elected to keep playing at the junior level, Santini is poised to begin his sophomore season at perennial NCAA powerhouse Boston College. As a freshman, Santini totaled three goals and eight assists over 35 games, numbers that weren’t earth-shattering, but perfectly respectable for a debut college season. At 6-foot-2, Santini possess ideal size on the blue line, and has shown good awareness and responsibility in his own zone. His offense may never catch up with his defensive skills, however, which could perhaps limit his upside as a fantasy asset once he reaches the NHL.
