Daniel Guan

Fantasy Summary

The former second-round pick is not an offensive player by any stretch of the imagination – he is safe, and reliable, but that might not be quite enough to land him an NHL job in the future.

April 2018 – MacLeod wrapped up his senior year at Boston University with three assists throughout his 23-game campaign with this season’s Hockey East champions. He was the Terriers lowest scoring defender all season after forfeiting a greater amount of playing time to star blue liners Dante Fabbro and Chad Krys. The former second-round draft-pick is a year removed from being voted the teams most improved player and may be in tough for a contract with the Lightning this summer. Although it had been rumored last summer that the Lightning had offered MacLeod an ELC to leave the University early, that has likely come off of the table by now. With a bevy of B-level prospects on the back end, the Lightning don’t seem to have an appropriate role available for him to fill and as such will likely watch one of their draft picks labeled as a rare bust for Al Murray.

June 2017 – The 21-year old defender, MacLeod, was voted the Terrier’s most improved player at Boston University in the 2016-17 season. His offensive production has seen little to no progression since he was drafted in the second round of 2014. The stay-at-home defender, who was scratched periodically throughout the year will be a senior at BU next season. He will likely earn more playing time in his final year of college development, and potentially a contract with the Lightning where he will compete with Erik Cernak for a top-6 shut-down role over the next several seasons.

June 2014 – The Tampa Bay Lightning selected Johnathan MacLeod 57th overall at the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Brendan Ross

 

June 2014 – There is a lot to like with American defenseman Johnathan MacLeod as he possesses great leadership skills, an exciting physical game and stifling defensive approach. He’s an astute defensive presence and because of that, his offensive skills often get overlooked but there’s promising upside there. Whether or not MacLeod will produce fantasy worthy numbers has yet to be determined but his ability to transition the puck up the ice with strong safe outlet passes can’t be overstated. Committed to Boston University and projected as a potential top 60 selection for the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Brendan Ross
