Observations

February 2019 – Despite seeing mainly third pairing minutes on an excellent Denver University squad, Demin has delivered significant offense from the back end in his freshman year. He currently has 13 points in 27 games played including four goals. This past weekend he scored the game winning goal in a 1-0 win over Minnesota-Duluth, one of the NCAA’s top teams, in a very important NCHC conference match-up that had huge playoff implications. If teammate Ian Mitchell decides to turn pro after this season, it’s highly likely that Demin could take over as power play quarterback in his sophomore year. Mason Black

September 2018 – Demin is an offensively gifted defenseman that spent most of the year in the BCHL where he posted 45 points, including nine goals, in only 57 games. As a native Californian, he worked his way through the Anaheim Jr. Ducks system before making the jump to one of the top tier-II junior leagues in Canada so that he could maintain his NCAA eligibility and is committed to one of the top programs in the country next season where he’ll head to the University of Denver. His path over the past couple of seasons looks very similar to Ian Mitchell whom he’ll play alongside and be mentored by this year. Expect moderate point totals as Demin gets acclimatized to the NCHA style of game – typically considered the hardest conference in NCAA – and then a big jump in point totals if Ian Mitchell decides to head to Chicago at the end of 2018-19.
