Xavier Ouellet might be a candidate to make Detroit's roster out of training camp next season.
He posted four goals and 17 points in 70 games with AHL Grand Rapids this past season and he skated in four matches with Detroit. Ouellet also dressed in one playoff contest for the Red Wings over Jakub Kindl, so the club clearly has faith in his abilities. He showcased offensive talent in two years of QMJHL play, but it didn't come through in his first professional campaign. It wouldn't be a shock if Ouellet started the year in the minors to better develop his overall game. May 29 - 1:14 PM

Xavier Ouellet registered two assists in Canada's 6-3 victory over Slovakia Friday at the World Junior Championship in Ufa.

The offensive defenseman has been a dominant force on the ice this season with Blainville-Boisbriand of the QMJHL. The second round pick of the Detroit Red Wings in the 2011 draft is very appealing in fantasy and should be owned as a minor-leaguer in all keeper formats. He doesn't seem far off from making the jump to the professional ranks and should be a solid second or third defenseman in the NHL. He's the definition of a second-round steal.
