Devon Toews
26-Year-Old DefensemanD
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Toews had a career year across the board with the Islanders last season, setting new personal bests in essentially every single category, including games played (68), goals (six), assists (22), PIM (16), shots (122), power-play points (six), hits (55), blocks (75) and average ice time (20:31). The Isles couldn't afford to re-sign the restricted free agent this offseason, so they ended up trading him to Colorado in October in exchange for a pair of second-round picks. Shortly thereafter, the Avalanche signed Toews to a four-year, $16.4 million contract. Toews' ice time may dip a bit in 2020-21, as he's expected to skate with Ian Cole on Colorado's third pairing, but he'll still see ample usage with the man advantage as a member of the Avs' second power-play unit, which will bolster his scoring upside. He'll have eight goal, 35-point potential over the course of a full season, making him a nice fourth or fifth option at defense for fantasy players looking to add depth in the later rounds of this year's drafts.

Nabs first points with Avs

January 15, 2021
Toews recorded a power-play goal and an assist in Friday's 8-0 win over the Blues.
ANALYSIS
There was plenty of offense to go around Friday, and Toews got his with an assist on Joonas Donskoi's tally in the third period. Toews sweetened his stat line with the eighth and final goal just 2:54 after Donskoi's marker. A solid two-way blueliner, the 26-year-old Toews has two points and three blocked shots through his first two appearances with the Avs. He produced 28 points in 68 outings with a much more defensive Islanders team last year.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Toews made his NHL debut on Dec. 23, and besides a brief stint back in the AHL around the All-Star break, stayed with the Islanders for the rest of the season. He played mostly in place of an injured Thomas Hickey, who missed 29 games because of an upper-body injury. Toews played so well, though, that he remained in the lineup instead of Hickey after he became healthy. In 48 NHL games, the 25-year-old posted five goals, 18 points and a plus-7 rating. He didn't play much while short handed, but Toews did become a regular on the Islanders' second power-play unit. Coach Barry Trotz will have some major decisions to make on his blue line in 2019-20, and a late-summer trade isn't out of the question, but Toews will head into training camp in contention with Hickey for the Islanders' No. 6 defenseman spot.
Toews is gradually making his way through the Islanders system, adding 13 goals and 54 assists over 106 games with AHL Bridgeport over the past two seasons. He hasn't seen the bright lights of the NHL, but his time should come soon considering the Isles finished with the worst goal differential (minus-32) in the league last year and lost all-world pivot John Tavares to the Maple Leafs in July.
