24-Year-Old DefensemanD

2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Makes impact in home debut
DBuffalo Sabres
March 1, 2019
Montour scored a goal at even strength and added a power-play assist in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Penguins.
ANALYSIS
Playing his first home game as a Sabre, Montour put together his first multi-point effort in over a month. The 24-year-old now has six goals and 27 points through 64 games, but his fantasy ceiling remains capped with the two Rasmuses (Dahlin and Ristolainen) dominating the point with the man advantage in Buffalo.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
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.
