New Jersey Devils
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

Santini chipped in one shot and one block in a season-high 16:57 of ice time in Thursday's 5-2 win over Boston.
ANALYSIS
As you can gather from the box score, Santini wasn't a major factor in this upset win, and his ice time total was the lowest among New Jersey's six blueliners. He's dressed in each of the Devils' past four games, but Santini's still yet to record a point through five appearances this season.

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.
