Observations

April 2019 – Sherman has seen his fantasy prospects fall from slim to none in his first full season of pro hockey. After seeing his offense seemingly regress during his collegiate career, he has managed just two goals and five points for Providence this year. While physicality and grit are his lone saving grace for fantasy purposes, Sherman has contributed a disappointing 28 PIMs this year. He can safely be removed from fantasy consideration until further notice. Chris Mazza

 

October 2018 – Sherman brings very little offensive appeal for fantasy purposes. If he ends up on a fantasy roster, it will require a league that values hits and PIM over all else. After signing his entry level contract in March, this season will be important for Sherman as he attempts to prove to the Bruins organization that he possesses NHL upside. Chris Mazza

 

April 2018 – Wiley Sherman is a behemoth of a man. A decent skater for his size, he is a massive stay at home, shut-down, physical defenceman. He makes a good first pass out of the zone and owns an absolute cannon from the point. Originally drafted in 2013 he has spent the past 4 years becoming a polished defensive prospect at Harvard University. On March 22nd Wiley Sherman signed his ELC with the Bruins and brings a winning pedigree from the Harvard program of where he was a teammate of Ryan Donato.  He plays a simple game, could rack up some nice hit totals for your team. Sid Osmond
