7/4:Turning 24 in September, David Pope is one of the older prospects in the Detroit Red Wings system, but he thinks his time in college has helped him progress his game to the point of contending for a spot on the Wings roster this season. The 2013 fourth-round pick of the Red Wings has spent the last four seasons in the NCHC with the University of Nebraska-Omaha and set career highs in his senior year for goals (20) and points (41). Both figures were good for the team lead. Scoring 12 goals on the power play, he ranked second in the country in that discipline. This skill set is something desired by the Red Wings, who ranked 24th in the NHL last season with a 17.5 percent power-play effectiveness. Pope attended Detroit’s development camp in late June alongside all 10 Red Wings draftees from the 2018 NHL Entry Draft and will vie for a roster spot out of training camp this fall. Should he make the team, he will be an interesting fantasy target, especially for leagues that prioritize power-play points. Also as a new player in the NHL, he would likely carry an inexpensive tag for DFS and could be an effective spot starter.--Kevin Acorn - RotoBaller
