New York Islanders
2018 Fantasy Outlook
At 6-foot-3 and 217 pounds, Pelech is a physical specimen on the blue line, but the offense has been hard to come by during his young NHL career. Over his first full season in 2017-18, he scored just three goals and 19 points with a plus-7 rating. Pelech notched the same amount of goals last campaign as he did in 2016-17, despite receiving more than double the amount of minutes. The 23-year-old averages more than a hit and block per game, so he's useful to fantasy owners in that regard, but the real hope is that he starts inflicting more damage on opponents within the attacking zone.

Pelech has two assists in his last three games.
ANALYSIS
On the season Pelech has five goals and 15 assists in 76 games for the Islanders. While Pelech is never likely to develop into an elite offensive defenseman, his play in the defensive zone deserves some applause. Pelech leads all defensemen on the Islanders with a rating of plus-20. That defense, along with the goaltending, is a main reason why the Islanders will make the playoffs this season.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
With the trade of Travis Hamnoic over the summer there is a spot open on the blue line for either Ryan Pulock, Scott Mayfield, or Pelech. The Isles thought highly enough of Pelech to ensure that he wasn't taken by Las Vegas in the expansion draft. A strong showing by Pelech during camp could force the Islanders hand but most expect Pulock to win that final slot with one of Pelech or Mayfield serving as injury insurance and being a healthy scratch most nights while the other is playing with Bridgeport of the AHL.
