Observations:

 

December 2013 – Sieloff has been sidelined this season after breaking his cheek in a fight and then acquiring an infection during the healing process. Had he not been injured, he might have been playing in another WJC with the USA entry as their main shutdown defender. His status was updated a few weeks ago by management, he will likely be returning in early January free of all restrictions. It was said at the beginning of the year that if he didn’t make the Flames he wouldn’t be sent back to Junior, but that was Jay Feaster, with interm Brian Burke at the helm, his status may change due to the fact he has not been able to play since early October. Jason Banks

 

March 2013 - In his OHL debut season, Sieloff made his physical presence felt with bone-crushing body checks and astute defensive play. In limited action due to injury, Sieloff was able to contribute three goals and 11 points and picked up 85 minutes in penalties (an area where his greatest fantasy value lies). Sieloff was recently named the second hardest hitter in the OHL Western Conference. Brendan Ross

 

January 2013 – A member of the 2013 Team USA gold medal winning squad, Patrick Sieloff was one of the key defensive weapons for the stars and stripes.  Originally committed to Miami University (NCAA), Sieloff opted to join the Windsor Spitfires instead and he has been very good.  His ability to provide a physical presence is among the best in major junior. He hits often and hard and is willing to answer the bell by dropping the mitts at any time. Offensively, Sieloff provides a solid yet unspectacular puck moving game but he will never be a defender to tear up the scoresheet.  Through 42 games with Windsor in 2012-13, Sieloff has recorded three goals and 10 points. Brendan Ross

 

Fantasy Outlook: C-

 

Sieloff has the potential to become a valuable commodity on an NHL blueline but his value in fantasy hockey will mainly lie in his ability to put up penalty minutes, hits and blocked shots.
