Demers has registered just a single assist and 11 shots through his past 10 games.

EDGE Analysis

This recent slump is even more frustrating because it follows an excellent 10-game stretch in which Demers registered two goals, eight points and 20 shots. However, this is likely more the result of Arizona's shortcomings than Demers' play. Expect the inconsistency to continue, which makes it difficult to rely on the 29-year-old defenseman in the majority of fantasy formats.

Demers recorded two assists to extend his point streak to four games during Thursday's 5-4 loss to Buffalo.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old defenseman is having a nice offensive run to start the year with two goals, eight points and 30 shots through 14 games. Demers has logged a career-high 2:29 on the power play and is well on his way to his best offensive season. He also moves the fantasy needle in the peripheral categories, so the first-year Coyote is worth a look in most settings.

Demers recorded an assist and logged 22:45 of ice time (5:01 with the man advantage) during Thursday's 5-4 loss to Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

Demers has found himself on the No. 1 power-play unit of late, and while Thursday's helper didn't come with the man advantage, that development is a clear boost to his fantasy outlook. He's now registered a point and a minor penalty in three consecutive games, and his 17 shots, 11 hits and 11 blocked shots are respectable peripheral marks. Demers offers a serviceable cross-category profile in depper settings.

Demers was traded to the Coyotes on Saturday, with forward Jamie McGinn moving to the Panthers, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

This move gives the 'Yotes a stable presence on the back line, and it means prized sophomore Jakob Chychrun (knee) won't have to rush in his recovery. Demers added nine goals and 19 assists for the Panthers last season, albeit with a career-worst minus-14 rating. Don't expect that latter figure to improve given that there's so much youth in the desert, but fantasy owners investing in Demers should know that he's capable of working on the power play and delivering decent totals in hits and blocked shots.

The Panthers elected to leave Demers available for Wednesday's NHL expansion draft, TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Demers' exclusion from the list is a bit of a surprise given his recent long-term deal with the Panthers. However, the club elected to retain the services of four other defensemen instead. It's not guaranteed he will be headed to Vegas, but he's one of the top names made available for the Golden Knights in the draft and is coming off a 28-point season for Florida.

Demers went a whopping minus-5 with one shot, three blocks and two giveaways in Thursday's 6-2 defeat at the hands of the Canadiens.

EDGE Analysis

Well, that's about as poor a performance as you can deliver, being on the ice for almost all the opposition's goals. He's delivered a few major defensive duds this year, with the most recent one a minus-4 effort March 7 against the Rangers. Although Demers has set a new career mark with nine goals, his composite production (27 points, minus-13) doesn't move the needle in most fantasy formats.

Demers recorded a pair of assists Tuesday in a 4-3 loss to Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

The former Star and Shark has three points in his last three games for a total of 25 in 72 contests this year. While Demers isn't likely to get back to his career high of 34 set in San Jose back in 2013-14, his 96 hits are a personal best, which helps sustain his value in the very deepest of leagues.

Demers logged just 16:47 of ice time and failed to register a point for the seventh consecutive game during Wednesday's loss to Edmonton.

EDGE Analysis

Further concerning is Demers has just six shots, three blocked shots and 14 hits during the pointless stretch. He's a solid real-world defenseman, but his mediocre offensive and peripheral statistics don't move the needle in most seasonal leagues. Demers should be left to deep leagues, and his current owners will want to monitor his ice time over the next few games.

Demers scored a goal and added an assist with a plus-2, a blocked shot and a hit in Tuesday's 6-5 win against the Senators.

EDGE Analysis

Demers posted just his fifth multi-point game of the season. He also had just two goals and four points over his past 15 games, so don't be in a rush to add him off the waiver wire. Demers is only worth a look in the deepest of pools at this point.

Demers scored the game-winning goal and registered three shots on net during Wednesday's win over the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran defenseman is having a serviceable fantasy season with eight goals, 17 points, 52 shots, 50 blocked shots, 37 PIM and 51 hits. However, he's also sporting an unsustainable 15.4 shooting percentage and outside of his eight tallies doesn't significantly tip the scales in any one category. Plus, 19 of his PIM came in a single outing. Be careful not to overvalue Demers.
