August 2021 – Levi was traded to the Buffalo Sabres in a deal that saw Sam Reinhart heading to the Florida Panthers. Nick Richard

January 2021 – Not only did Levi claim the starting position for Team Canada, but he was a rock between the pipes. He started all seven games for the team, backstopping them to the Gold Medal final. Although he fell to the Americans in the finale, this tournament should be viewed as a huge stepping stone for his career and certainly one that put his name on the map. On top of his 6-1-0 record, he stopped 135 of the 140 shots faced and posted three shutouts throughout the competition. He looked calm, focused, and demonstrated excellent vision during his starts. His road to the show is far from over, and he will need to direct this momentum into his Freshman year with Northeastern. However, his stock value has surely enjoyed a rise and is now on the radar for future fantasy deployment. Stash him away in deep dynasty formats, but keep expectations tempered for now.  Dave Hall

December 2020 – Devon Levi has made the final Team Canada roster and will compete among a group of three for the tournament’s starting job. Levi, the only goaltender out of the three without any CHL experience, has been strong throughout camp. He notched a 36-save shutout in their final intrasquad match and was given high praise from the team’s Head Coach. The team will have two exhibition games to make their final decision between the pipes. Dave Hall

December 2020 – Floridas’ late-round 2020 draft pick is currently competing for a spot to represent his country (Canada) in this year’s WJC. His chances are certainly slim, but the experience alone is a positive step in his development. Expect a higher chance to earn his shot over the next few tournaments. Dave Hall

October 2020 – Levi dropped all the way to the bottom of the draft but that should not take away from his long-term potential. His exceptional 2019-20 campaign is one for the record books, and something the Panthers organizations will be looking for him to grow on. While playing for the Carleton Place Canadiens (CCHL), he posted an incredible 34-2-1 record, along with a 1.47 goals-against and .941 save percentage. These numbers were the catalyst for a long list of awards on the season, which included: Top Rookie, Best Goaltender, Player of the Year, and the league’s Most Valuable Player. He has committed to play for Northeastern (NCAA), for the 2020-21 season,  so time will tell if he can continue this upward trend. If so, there is potential for this to be a very strong pick deep in the draft. Dave Hall
