Fantasy Summary

Offensive defenseman that will take some time to develop as a prospect.


Click to Expand

June 2023 – As of June 1, 2023, the Blackhawks have opted to not enter into an entry level contract with Demin thus losing their signing rights window. Puneet Sharma


October 2020 – Denim is waiting to see if there will be any hockey for him at the University of Denver this season. Losing a year of development at this point could be detrimental to his career. The NCHC do plan to start play in December. Tony Carr


April 2020 – This is a big year coming up for Demin now that teammate Ian Mitchell has signed with the Blackhawks and will turn pro. Can he run the offense for the University of Denver? He certainly has the talent to do it but the question is has he developed enough to this point to take the reins and lead his team? If he can, it adds yet another body to what has become the deepest talent pool for defencemen in the entire NHL. Tony Carr


February 2020 – Demin has been traded from Vegas to Chicago.  Jokke Nevalainen


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.
