2019 Fantasy Outlook
Montour's 2018-19 season was a mixed bag. While he scored a career-high 35 points between the Ducks and Sabres, the 25-year-old blueliner's three-point increase compared to 2017-18 was accompanied by some drops elsewhere. His rating fell from plus-16 to minus-20, and Montour's power-play production was halved from 12 points to six. Montour will have a hard time carving out meaningful power-play minutes with Rasmus Dahlin and Rasmus Ristolainen ahead of him on the blue-line pecking order, but he can still be a valuable asset on the back end for a hopeful Buffalo team.

February 28, 2020
Montour produced a helper in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Golden Knights.
ANALYSIS
The 25-year-old defenseman has recorded five points in his last five games after a lengthy slump. Montour has 18 points, 82 shots, 56 hits, 47 blocked shots and a plus-17 rating in 49 appearances. He's one of the Sabres' more reliable defenders, but that typically comes at the expense of his offense.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Montour finished his first full NHL season with nine goals, 32 points (12 on the power play) and 160 shots on goal in 80 games. In turn, the Ducks rewarded Montour with two more years under contract at $3.388 million annually. The 24-year-old's power-play ability is what sets him apart from Josh Manson as the team's top right-handed defenseman, and the Ducks could desperately use an uptick from Manson -- they finished 23rd in the league by converting 17.8 percent of their opportunities with the man advantage. Montour is a value add in deeper leagues and should be on the top of lists if he's still (somehow) available in keeper formats.
With 89 points (25 goals) through 104 AHL games over the past two seasons, Montour's future is bright. He's currently being deployed as a depth defenseman and watches from the press box some nights, which makes this a sneaky time to buy low on the promising youngster. While Montour is likely still a year or two away from being a reliable asset in yearly settings, don't be surprised if he immediately shines once he's handed a larger role.
