News: Raymond finished fifth on the Leafs in scoring with 19 goals and 45 points in 82 games. He had just three goals in 22 games after the Olympic break.
Impact: Raymond did have seven assists in those 22 games, so we guess that isn't half bad. But he never really lived up to the promise of his hot October, when he delivered five goals and 11 points in 14 games. He becomes a free agent this offseason, it's unlikely he'll resign with the Leafs.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: MacIntyre will be sent down to the AHL to lead the Marlies in the playoffs, James Mirtle of The Globe and Mail reports.
Impact: In his first NHL start of his career, MacIntyre made 33 saves in a loss. He has played 10 years in the minors and was brought up just to give him a start in the NHL for his career, so do not expect him to be recalled unless it is warranted by an injury.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | STATS
News: Bernier will undergo surgery to repair a sports hernia. He says he will have the operation Wednesday and be ready in time for training camp in September. Bernier missed five games in March due to the injury. He then aggravated the problem April 3 against the Boston Bruins and finished the season on the sidelines.
Impact: Bernier was 26-19-7 with a 2.68 goals-against average and a .923 save percentage this season. The Leafs missed the playoffs after a 6-14-2 finish. The injury likely means Canada will not be able to call on Bernier for next month's world hockey championship in Belarus.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bernier (knee) is slated to undergo surgery to repair a sports hernia, cbc.ca reports. He had missed five games in March due to the injury and aggravated it April 3 against Boston.
Impact: Bernier, who missed the Leafs' final four regular-season games with an MCL issue, is expected to need two-to-three weeks of rehab following the procedure. The 25-year-old goalie, who went 26-19-7 in 55 games as Toronto's top netminder this past season, recording a 2.68 GAA average and a .923 save percentage in the process, will now have plenty of time to recover from his aches and pains in advance of the 2014-15 season.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Kessel finished the season with 80 points, including 37 goals, in 82 games.
Impact: He was held off the scoreboard in Saturday's 1-0 loss to Ottawa and had just two goals in his last 10 games. In fact, he had just seven points (three goals, four assists) in his last 16 games. Rest up, Phil -- next season should be better for your Leafs.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Reimer was outstanding in Saturday's 1-0 loss to Ottawa. He made 36 saves and the only goal he surrendered came on the power play on a near perfect shot.
Impact: It was nice to see him focused and energized between the pipes in what might be his last game in blue and white. He's a restricted free agent this offseason and there's no doubt he wants out. He may be traded before draft day.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gunnarsson (undisclosed) will not play in Saturday's game against Ottawa, Jonas Siegel of TSN 1050 reports.
Impact: The Leafs recalled defenseman Petter Granberg on an emergency basis, indicating that one of the team's blueliners is dealing with an injury, and it's apparently Gunnarsson, who finishes the year with 17 points (three goals) in 80 games. The nature of his ailment is unclear.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Holland was recalled from AHL Toronto on Saturday, the Leafs' official site reports.
Impact: Holland has five goals and five assists in 38 games for the Maple Leafs this season, and he figures to log one more game with the team Saturday night against Ottawa.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Reimer will be in goal for the Maple Leafs on Saturday, Paul Hendrick of Leafs TV reports.
Impact: Reimer is coming off a good start on Tuesday, giving up two goals on 33 shots. However, the team lost that game and was eliminated from the playoffs. Reimer will look to finish the season on a strong note in Ottawa on Saturday.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Smith was reassigned to AHL Toronto on Friday.
Impact: Smith was recalled Thursday and logged nearly eight minutes in the team's loss to Florida, but he'll head right back down to the AHL club. He'll presumably finish out the year there.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ranger (illness) notched his sixth goal of the season Thursday against the Panthers.
Impact: Ranger missed the previous game with a case of the flu, but showed no ill effects Thursday night. Unfortunately, him and his mates fell by a 4-2 count to the Panthers.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: MacIntyre made 33 saves in a 4-2 loss to the Panthers on Thursday night. It was his first career NHL start in a 10-year professional career.
Impact: He's played for nine different minor league teams (and a KHL team to boot) over those 10 years, making five NHL relief appearances in that span. MacIntyre put up a good fight Thursday, but in the end, his mates played the same way they have most of the season: They allowed 37 shots on net.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bozak scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Panthers. He has seven points, including four goals, in his last 10 games.
Impact: Bozak's also got a very fine 49 points in 57 games this season.The points established a new career high; his previous best (47) came in 73 games in 2011-12. Just imagine what Bozak could do with a year of full health next season.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gardiner picked up two assists in Thursday's loss to the Panthers. He has nine points -- all assists -- in his last nine games.
Impact: Is it a little too late? He finally grew into his game late last season, but at times this year, he struggled to re-find that magic. Gardiner now has 31 points on the season.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Smith was recalled from AHL Toronto on Thursday, James Mirtle of the Toronto Globe and Mail reports.
Impact: Smith will be with the Leafs for their remaining handful of games with Dave Bolland and Joffrey Lupul unlikely to be available. He'll likely be relegated to a bottom-six role.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Drew MacIntyre, not Reimer, will get the start Thursday in Florida.
Impact: It's more about rewarding MacIntyre for a strong AHL season than a condemnation of Reimer. But it's not lost on anyone that the Leafs have gone 10 consecutive games without a win with Reimer as the starter.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: McLaren has played in just three games since his demotion to the minors in March.
Impact: He has nine PIM in those games, but with the Marlies headed into the postseason, McLaren will probably find himself on the outside looking in -- there just isn't a need to his kind of pugnacity in the playoffs. And considering no teams claimed him when he went through waivers in March, McLaren could be destined to finish his playing career in the minors.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bodie has seen good ice time over the Leafs' last four games -- more than 13 minutes in two games, and more than 20 in a third. He has no points, but has delivered six shots and six hits in those four games.
Impact: Bodie's ice time has ranged from 11:11 to 20:29 in that span. The Leafs are in trouble if he's playing 20 minutes a night, but the big man has a future on a strong fourth line in the future. He can keep up with the play in ways that typical big men can't, so that spells a positive potential for him. Bodie's not a guy who'll drop the gloves a lot, but he'll be hard to play against -- though that's not something that will necessarily generate much fantasy value.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: MacIntyre will make his first NHL start Thursday against Florida, according to Hockey Central at Noon on Toronto's Sportsnet the FAN590.
Impact: This is a class move and has nothing to do with a lack of faith in James Reimer. MacIntyre is 30 years old and has been starring in the AHL, but has only ever appeared in relief in the NHL. And against the Panthers, he could be well positioned to win that outing.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gleason has one assist and a minus-9 rating in the Leafs' last 20 games. He has 27 PIM in that span.
Impact: His ice time has fluctuated from as high as 19:34 to as low as 11:00 over that span. He has been overmatched most nights and his value on the ice is in the 5/6 pairing. Unfortunately, the Leafs have overused him and put him in situations that haven't led to success. His fantasy value -- if there was much there to begin with -- has deteriorated quickly in Toronto.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Orr has played in just seven games since the Olympic break ended Feb. 26. He has one shot and one minor penalty over that span in very limited ice time.
Impact: The death knell appears to be ringing for Orr, whose effectiveness has been sorely limited this year -- opposing players simply refuse to drop their gloves with the pugilist. He can't skate well enough to keep up with today's game, so it remains to be seen what kind of future he has.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | STATS
News: Reimer stopped 31 of 33 shots in Tuesday's 3-0 loss at Tampa Bay.
Impact: Reimer has posted a 3.91 GAA in losing each of his nine starts since the beginning of March.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: D'Amigo was returned to AHL Toronto on Wednesday, James Mirtle of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Impact: D'Amigo has played in three games since his March 29 callup, scoring just one point and never managing to see the ice for more than 11 minutes over that span. The Leafs seem content to roll with the offensive depth currently on the roster, so they'll move D'Amigo to the AHL to get him some more ice time.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bolland (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Jonas Siegel of TSN 1050 reports.
Impact: Bolland has been plagued by the ankle injury all season, and is considered questionable for the team's final two games Thursday against the Panthers and Saturday against the Senators. The center did collect eight goals and four assists in the 23 games he managed to suit up for.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Van Riemsdyk fired six shots on net Tuesday, but like his fellow Leafs, he couldn't solve the Lightning goaltenders. He finished minus-2 in a 3-0 loss.
Impact: JVR has 271 SOG this season and 30 goals, but we're pretty sure he'd trade it all for a playoff berth. And that's precisely what the Leafs lost Tuesday night.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Reimer made a very fine 31 saves on 33 shots Tuesday against the Lightning, but was stuck with a loss.
Impact: Unfortunately for Reimer and the Leafs, the loss eliminated them from playoff contention. One has to wonder whether the Leafs will overhaul their roster in the offseason after collapsing down the stretch this year; it seems possible that Reimer, a restricted free agent, could wear a different jersey next season.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lupul underwent successful arthroscopic knee surgery Tuesday, David Alter of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.
Impact: The procedure officially puts Lupul out for the rest of the regular season and likely deep into the postseason, should Toronto qualify and advance past the first round.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ranger is experiencing flu-like symptoms and will not play Tuesday against the Lightning.
Impact: Colton Orr enters the lineup as the fourth-line right wing while Ranger takes a seat.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bolland (ankle) will not play Tuesday against the Lightning.
Impact: With Bolland experiencing recurring problems with the ankle injury first sustained back in November, it's worth wondering whether the Leafs might shut him down at this point. He's already seen his ice time decline considerably in recent games.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ashton has been recalled from the AHL's Toronto Marlies, the Toronto Sun reports.
Impact: The report notes that Ashton was skating on a line with Nazem Kadri and David Clarkson on Tuesday, an arrangement that could give Ashton some short-term fantasy utility if it sticks.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | STATS
News: The Maple Leafs recalled MacIntyre from their AHL affiliate on Tuesday.
Impact: MacIntyre, 30, has appeared in one game for the Leafs, stopping 14 shots in a relief effort March 23 at New Jersey. He has a 27-13-5 record with the Marlies this season, a 2.49 goals-against average, .918 save percentage and one shutout in 46 games.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | STATS
News: Toronto recalled Ashton from its AHL affiliate on Tuesday.
Impact: Ashton, 23, has three assists and 19 penalty minutes in 31 games with the Maple Leafs this season. He has also played 24 games with the Toronto Marlies in the AHL, with 23 points on 16 goals and seven assists.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bolland (ankle) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Lightning, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Impact: The report notes that Bolland, who saw 9:15 worth of ice time Saturday against the Jets, is dealing with pain in his left ankle, which threatens his availability Tuesday.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Reimer is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Lightning, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Impact: Reimer, who is 2-8-0 with a 4.27 GAA over his past 12 games, will try to help the Leafs get back on a winning track Tuesday. After all, the team's playoff hopes are amazingly still alive with three regular-season contests remaining.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lupul is slated to undergo surgery to repair his meniscus, TSN's Jonas Siegel reports.
Impact: The report notes that Lupul -- who has 44 points in 69 games to date -- is looking at a three-week recovery period following the procedure, which effectively ends his regular season.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: MacIntyre was recalled from AHL Toronto on Saturday, James Mirtle of the Toronto Globe and Mail reports.
Impact: With Jonathan Bernier (knee) out for at least the next three weeks, the Leafs opted to swap a forward (Carter Ashton) for a goaltender. So long as Toronto remains in the mix for a playoff spot, James Reimer figures to start over MacIntyre.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ashton was returned to AHL Toronto on Saturday, James Mirtle of the Toronto Globe and Mail reports.
Impact: Ashton didn't play in a game during his two-day stint with the team, as he was a healthy scratch Saturday against the Bruins. The 23-year-old former first-round draft pick has yet to find any success in the NHL, but he has 16 goals in 22 games for the AHL Toronto Marlies this season.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lupul (lower body) played 12:07 against the Jets on Saturday night. He finished with three shots and a minus-1 rating.
Impact: Watch for the Leafs to give him some rest now that the games don't matter. It's just a hunch on our part, but why risk further injury by dressing him with nothing to gain?
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Kadri was gifted with his 20th goal of the season -- a power-play marker -- in Saturday's loss to Winnipeg. The goal came when goalie Ondrej Pavelec coughed up a puck from behind the net and passed it to Kadri in the crease, who drilled it into an empty net.
Impact: A goal is a goal, no matter how it is scored. And Kadri has now joined the 20-goal club. It was also his 50th point of the season. It's a very good season for the young center -- he'd probably be valued more if he wasn't in Toronto.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Reimer made 37 saves in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Jets.
Impact: He played well, but his mates were flat, particularly after the first period. He'll ride out the season as the Leafs' starter.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Kessel scored his first goal in six games in Saturday's loss to Winnipeg. The goal was his 37th of the season.
Impact: He has three points in his last two games and 81 in 79 on the season. He's one of the league's best, but he needs more from his teammates to help carry the Leafs to a win.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lupul (lower body) will play in Saturday's game against the Jets, TSN's Jonas Siegel reports.
Impact: Lupul was first considered doubtful, then improved to questionable, and now he'll suit up for the game. He may be at less than 100 percent, as the Maple Leafs find themselves desperately battling for a playoff spot.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Reimer will start Saturday against the Jets, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Impact: As expected, with regular starter Jonathan Bernier to miss at least three weeks with an MCL injury, Reimer will shoulder the load for the Leafs down the stretch as they try to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bolland (undisclosed) is expected to play against the Jets despite missing Friday's practice and Saturday's morning skate, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.
Impact: Officially, Bolland is a game-time decision for Saturday's tilt due to an undisclosed injury, but coach Randy Carlyle said he should be available. The 27-year-old Bolland has two goals and two assists in his last four games.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lupul (lower body) is now considered a game-time decision for Saturday's tilt against Winnipeg, David Alter of Sportsnet 590 The FAN reports.
Impact: Coach Randy Carlyle had said previously that Lupul was doubtful to take the ice Saturday, but it seems the 30-year-old showed enough during morning skate to warrant a status upgrade. It's still no lock that he'll play, but if Lupul can get through pregame warmups without issue, the training staff could give him the green light.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | STATS
News: Kessel notched two assists in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over Boston.
Impact: With 79 points, Kessel is three away from matching his career high set in 2011-12.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | STATS
News: Bernier will be sidelined three weeks because of a knee sprain, and goaltender James Reimer will be counted on to keep alive the Maple Leafs' slim playoff chances. Toronto trails Columbus by one point for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, but the Blue Jackets have played two fewer games.
Impact: Leafs coach Randy Carlyle made the injury announcement on Friday. Bernier left in the third period of Toronto's 4-3 overtime win over Boston on Thursday night after falling awkwardly on his left leg. Bernier was making his fifth straight start since returning from a lower body injury that kept him out five games.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Reimer will assume the reins as starter now that Jonathan Bernier will be out of action for at least three weeks.
Impact: Berner suffered an MCL injury (knee) and needs rest and rehab. This will be a test of Reimer's psyche more than his ability, as he has struggled with the mental side of the game. Still, you now own a goalie who'll get you a lot more starts and that can be gold at this time of the season. Wait a game before activating him -- we really want to see how he responds to the pressure.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bernier (knee) has suffered an MCL injury and will be out at least three weeks, according to a report on Toronto's Sportsnet 590 The FAN.
Impact: The net is now James Reimer's as the Leafs fight to make the playoffs.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | STATS
News: Lupul needs knee surgery and will miss the rest of the regular season. Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said Monday that the forward will undergo a meniscus procedure and the recovery time is expected to be three weeks.
Impact: Lupul was a scratch for Toronto's win over Boston on Thursday and played limited minutes in the Leafs' loss to the Jets on Saturday. He has 22 goals and 22 assists in 69 games this season. Lupul is a proven scorer when healthy but has battled injuries throughout his career. He hasn't played 70 games in a season since 2008-09. The Leafs have three road games left and are three points behind Columbus for the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
Thu. Apr 3, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Van Riemsdyk hit the 30-goal mark for the first time in his career in Thursday's win over Boston.
Impact: He's done it in 76 games, so there's always a chance that JVR can add a couple more by season's end. His overall pace has slowed of late -- he has four goals in his last 10 games -- but van Riemsdyk should be a solid play until season's end.
Thu. Apr 3, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Kessel's two assists Thursday against Boston were his first points in four games. He has just six points in his last 12 games.
Impact: Kessel has slumped a bit of late, but he's still delivering a point-per-game pace (79 in 78). The Leafs need to run the table if they want to get to the postseason, and Kessel will need to step up to make that happen. Thursday's game showed he can do just that.
Thu. Apr 3, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Reimer relieved injured starter Jonathan Bernier in the third period of Thursday's game. He made 10 saves and allowed one goal.
Impact: The goal allowed the Bruins to tie, but he ended up with the win in OT. Bernier has been sent for an MRI, so Optimus Reims is likely headed for the net the next time the Leafs play.
Thu. Apr 3, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Franson picked up two assists in Thursday's win over the Bruins, extending his point streak to three games and four points (one goal, three assists).
Impact: He hasn't had the season we expected, but Franson does seem to be picking things up lately. Use this to your advantage.
Thu. Apr 3, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bernier (lower body) will undergo an MRI, and the Maple Leafs should know more about the goaltender's injury Friday, Sportsnet's David Alter reports.
Impact: The injury didn't look too good at first glance in Thursday's game, so the MRI isn't particularly surprising. Look for James Reimer to start Saturday's game against the Jets if Bernier is not able to go.
Thu. Apr 3, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Speaking after Thursday's game, Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said that Lupul (lower body) is doubtful for Saturday against the Jets, Sportsnet's David Alter reports.
Impact: The talented winger will likely miss a second consecutive game, and the exact nature of his injury remains unclear. Lupul can still be considered day-to-day, although it isn't a good sign that he's being called 'doubtful' nearly 48 hours before the next game.
Thu. Apr 3, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bernier suffered an apparent lower-body injury during the third period of Thursday's game, and he was removed from the contest immediately thereafter, NHL.com reports.
Impact: Toronto's Paul Ranger pushed Boston's Patrice Bergeron into Bernier, who immediately went down grabbing the lower part of his body. The goaltender's legs were in an awkward position after Bergeron fell on top of him, and James Reimer replaced Bernier in net right after the injury occurred. Bernier was able to skate off under his power, but it still won't be surprising if he misses at least a game or two.
Thu. Apr 3, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lupul will miss Thursday's game with a lower-body injury, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.
Impact: Lupul may have suffered the injury Thursday morning. At the moment, it's unclear whether the injury will keep Lupul out beyond this one game, so monitor his status on a day-to-day basis.
Thu. Apr 3, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bernier will be between the pipes Thursday against the Bruins, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Impact: With the Maple Leafs hanging on the edge of the Eastern Conference playoff race, coach Randy Carlyle will tap Bernier for his fifth straight start. Bernier snapped a three-game losing skid his last time out, saving 22 of 24 shots to dispatch the Flames.
Thu. Apr 3, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ashton was recalled from AHL Toronto on Thursday, James Mirtle of the Toronto Globe and Mail reports.
Impact: Ashton will give coach Randy Carlyle an additional option on the fourth-line as the Leafs look to optimize their lineups over the next few games to keep their playoff hopes alive. The 23-year-old has three points and 19 PIM in 31 games this season.
