Observations:

 

February 2014 - Duncan Siemens scored his first professional goal VS. Grand Rapids on February 5th. Siemens has struggled to develop as quickly as Colorado had hoped but the promise and potential are there for Siemens to be a true stay at home defensemen. Andrew Ward

 

June 2013 - Duncan Siemens finished out 2013 with 32 points in 70 games and a very respectable plus-31. Siemens continues to develop in the WHL and as a prospect Siemens has a promising future. His play is been mean and gritty, and his defensive ability is exactly what the Avalanche are missing on the back end. With the Avalanche in a transitional period of sorts, Siemens might get his best shot yet in the next training camp. Andrew Ward


April 2012 – Siemens didn’t see the statistical dominance that some expected after his draft year. Siemens is defense first player that is one of the hardest players to get by in one-on-one situations. He moves the puck very well. In the 2011-12 season he put up 28 points in 57 games. It was an alarming drop from the 43 points he had in his draft year. Siemens will challenge for a roster spot on the Avs next year, but if he can’t crack their top six, he will dominate Major Junior and be a big part of Team Canada at the U20’s and the Saskatoon Blades as they host the Memorial Cup. Zenon Herasymiuk

 

December 2011 – After looking- and playing- like a spot in the NHL was likely right away, 2011 first round selection Duncan Siemens has not enjoyed the dominant campaign many expected of a player who posted 43 points, a +40 rating and 121 PIM in his draft year. Held to 16 points before the break, Siemens also failed to crack Team Canada. A long, luxurious skater who can ragdoll opponents in his own end, that Siemens’ offensive game has seemingly disappeared with the departure of Stefan Elliot is a sign his abilities in that department may have been overstated.

Fantasy Outlook: C-

 

Modest upside, but buried behind so many better offensive options
