Observations:

 

May 2014 - After leading the OHL in goals, Dane Fox was named to the OHL's 1st All-Star Team joining Scott Laughton, teammate Connor Brown, Aaron Ekblad, Slater Koekkoek and Alex Nedeljkovic. Fox's junior hockey comes to a close so he will be competing for a roster spot with the Canucks in 2014-15 but it's more likely the skilled agitating winger heads to the AHL. Brendan Ross

 

January 2014 - The top scorer in the OHL by a wide margin (42 goals in 39 games) was recently signed by the Vancouver Canucks. He admits to making some personal mistakes in the past which could partially explain why he wasn't drafted two years running (ranked 48th last year by NHL central scouting). After hovering around a point per game pace for a few years, Fox is up around two points per game with 70 points as an overager. Some of that undoubtable comes from his linemates, notably Connor McDavid, but that is not all he brings. In an interview with Dean Youngblood, Fox said that he models his game after Steve Ott and Dave Bolland. His coach lauds him for his complete game and grittiness, saying that he is defensively responsible and doesn't cheat offensively; he projects Fox as a third liner with powerplay time in the NHL. Austin Wallace

 

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: C

While he is currently scoring a torrid pace, even for an overager, it is likely to be his grit that will secure him a spot at the NHL level. He models himself after Dave Bolland and Dave Bolland the third liner is a good fantasy comparable.
