Observations:

February 2018 - Stanley is enjoying a nice campaign for the Kitchener Rangers of the OHL. He leads all Rangers defensemen with 13 goals and 36 points through 49 games. He’s not the fastest blueliner when it comes to pursuit of the puck, but, he overpowers the opposition with his size and uses that long reach to his advantage. Stanley is old school and plays with a physical edge, often wearing down opposing forwards and he’s not afraid to let it rip towards the net with that heavy shot. Jamie Zadow

September 2017 - After appearing in the Jets first preseason game with the Minnesota Wild, Stanley was sent down to the OHL where he will join the Kitchener Rangers. Stanley was previously acquired by the Rangers from the Windsor Spitfires in exchange for multiple draft picks. Jamie Zadow

 

August 2017 - Stanley will be heading home next season as the Kitchener Rangers acquired the 19-year-old in a trade with the Windsor Spitfires last week. Stanley could battle for a position on the Jets roster out of training camp and it remains to be seen if he will be returned to the OHL for another season. Jamie Zadow

July 2017 – Stanley underwent surgery in January to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee, limiting him to just 35 games with the Windsor Spitfires. The towering blueliner managed to recover in time and join his Spitfire teammates for a Memorial Cup victory on their home ice in May. Stanley signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Jets this summer and after a better showing at development camp this year, he could compete for a spot on the NHL roster this fall.

October 2016 – After some hiccups in the Jets' camp, Stanley was sent back to the Windsor Spitfires of the OHL for the 2016-17 season. – David Dickenson

September 2016 – Stanley saw his game develop by leaps and bounds in 2015-16 with the Windsor Spitfires. In addition to his gigantic 6-7 225 lbs frame, physical abilities on the defensive end, he was able to start to show slight glimpses of offensive skill to boot. He scored 17 points in 64 games with the Spitfires, last season on his way to becoming a first round draft pick. Stanley will make an excellent complement in a pairing with a top-notch offensive defenceman. – David Dickenson

June 2016 – With an outstanding prospect pool that has inspired some pundits to predict a Stanley Cup championship for Winnipeg within several seasons, the Jets drafted a player with the right last name. What they really got is a young giant who will make life miserable (and painful) for opponents in front of Winnipeg's net. Mark Allan  

March 2016 – Ten years ago, Stanley would have projected as a typical NHL defenseman, but these days a NHL defenseman needs skating skills more than size. Stanley is a behemoth in junior at his size and is physically dominating. That advantage will be mitigated as he advances to the pro ranks. Stanley has inadequate foot speed and mobility for the NHL right now and needs to improve his skating. Stanley has worked on and developed his offensive game, but is still a work in progress and does not show signs of translating to the NHL. Stanley struggled at times in the CHL Top Prospect game to keep pace with the speed and skill of the competition. He is a great example of a player who has more hockey value than fantasy value.

 

Fantasy Outlook: C

Physical defender who can mix in skill.
