Fantasy Summary

A puck-moving defenseman, Mahura can skate, pass, and shoot the puck. A future power play QB, he has top-four upside and will also block shots in leagues that count those peripheral stats.

Observations

October 2019 – Mahura started the 2019-20 season in the AHL, but was called up on Oct. 29 as the Ducks are thin on defense. He recorded three assists in a span of 2:52, becoming the first rookie since 1991 to record three assists in under three minutes of one period. Besides Cam Fowler and Hampus Lindholm, the Ducks do not have a ton of puck moving defenders at the pro level. Mahura took full advantage right away and will look to build on his confidence moving forward and if he does, he could stick for the rest of this season. Lucas Main

November 2018 – Highly touted Mahura made his NHL debut amid all the injuries on the Ducks blue line. In his first pro season, he’s registered eight points in 12 games. A power play QB in the WHL and showing his skills on the man advantage in the AHL, Mahura has a good shot to show off his abilities with injuries to Cam Fowler and Hampus Lindholm. He played almost 20 minutes in his debut and about a minute on the PP, and it looked like a seamless transition. He was poised with the puck and showed smart instincts. Anaheim’s bottom two defender spots have been interchanging all season, and with Mahura’s puck moving abilities he has a real shot to stay with the club if he can build off his debut. None the less, it looks like he will be a top four defenseman in the league, if not this season, sometime in the near future. Lucas Main
