Dylan DeMelo chipped in with a pair of assists, four blocked shots and a hit over 15:03 of ice time in Monday's 5-3 win against the Red Wings.
DeMelo has been amazing since flipping the calendar from February. He has seven helpers and a plus-4 rating in five March games, including a pair of assists on the power play. He had just eight assists through his first 45 games this season, but apparently the month of March agrees with him. He has emerged as a useful short-term fantasy option in deeper pools and a nice low-cost DFS choice while running hot. Mar 13 - 3:36 AM

Dylan DeMelo took a butt end to his face Saturday from Alex Burrows and did not return.

It happened in the third period and Burrows got five and a game for his misdeed and could possibly be facing some discipline from the NHL. "It was a butt end in the face. I had a pretty clear view of it," Logan Couture said. "It’s unfortunate. He cuts him and gets him between the eyes. It’s something that doesn’t belong in this game and it’s a player that’s had a history." DeMelo played only 8:19 Saturday and has two assists in 12 games. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Dylan DeMelo will be an option for the Sharks on Sunday, as he is ready to return from a wrist injury.
