2019 Fantasy Outlook
Coleman took another step forward with 22 goals and 36 points in 2018-19 after recording 13 goals and 25 points during his first full season in 2017-18. His shot total also climbed from 146 to 213, suggesting Coleman's enhanced production wasn't simply due to luck. Coleman also plays a physical brand of hockey, as evidenced by his 71 PIM last season. While neither his scoring nor his physicality stand out on their own, combine them and you get a useful deep-league asset with room for growth given his career trajectory thus far. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a three-year, $5.4 million contract with the Devils in July of 2018. Traded to Tampa Bay in February of 2020
Dishes three hits in loss
CTampa Bay Lightning
March 4, 2020
Coleman delivered three hits and a shot on net in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Bruins.
ANALYSIS
Coleman's ice time hasn't taken a major hit in the transition from New Jersey to Tampa Bay, as he's averaging 15:43 per game -- 1:19 less than he did with the Devils. Due to Steven Stamkos' core injury, Coleman should remain in the top six for now. He's added more physicality than offensive upside, though, as the 28-year-old has notched just one assist compared to 15 hits through five contests.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2012
2011
Coleman was a fantastic grinder in his first full NHL season, posting 25 points and 13 goals, including three shorthanded. He should hold down an important role in the bottom six and on the penalty kill, but it's hard to see the Texas native turning into the kind of scorer that really moves the needle in the fantasy realm. Coleman turns 27 in November, so he's probably past the point when you can expect major growth in his game. For what it's worth, he did lead the Devils with 216 hits last season.
Coleman was a third-round selection by the Devils in 2011 after playing his junior hockey with the USHL's Indiana Ice. Coleman played collegiately at Miami University last year, putting up 23 points in 39 games. Turning 21 in November, Coleman likely won't see NHL ice for a few seasons.
Coleman posted 92 points (34 G, 58 A) a year ago for the USHL's Indiana Ice to go along with 72 penalty minutes. As the Devils' third-round selection in this year's draft, Coleman isn't likely to show up in the NHL this season.
