Description: Toronto defenseman Cody Franson (knee) is unlikely to be ready for Wednesday's opener.
Insight: The 27-year-old injured a knee and couldn't get through a full practice, according to head coach Randy Carlyle. He's a 30-point defenseman, but a -20 rating doesn't help his fantasy value.
David Clarkson, RW9/29/2014 5:05:00 PM
Description: Maple Leafs right wing David Clarkson should not be drafted in fantasy leagues.

Nazem Kadri, C9/29/2014 5:01:00 PM
Description: Toronto center Nazem Kadri could be in line for a breakout year.
Insight: He had a career-high 50 points (20 goals, 30 assists) last season. And playing at 24-years-old this year, will look to increase those numbers. Kadri is a sleeper pick, that owners should target atthe end of drafts.

Description: Toronto winger Joffrey Lupul is looking to bounce back this season.
Insight: He still had 22 goals and 22 assists last year, but also had a -15 rating. If Lupul is able to stay healthy, he will have the opportunity to produce 60 points. Target him, staring around the 12th round.
Phil Kessel, RW9/29/2014 4:53:00 PM
Description: Toronto right wing Phil Kessel should be targeted early in fantasy drafts.
Insight: Kessel is a machine and should have no issue duplicating his 80-point mark from a season ago. Look to draft him in the second round, while targeting him at the end of the first, is not a ridiculous move as well.
Tyler Bozak, C9/29/2014 4:49:00 PM
Description: Maple Leafs center Tyler Bozak is coming off a career year.
Insight: While playing only 58 games, Bozak produced a career-high in numbers all across the board (19 goals, 30 assists, +2 rating). Heading into drafts, Bozak should be considered a sleeper, with potential to hit the 60-point mark, if he can stay healthy.
James van Riemsdyk, LW9/29/2014 4:37:00 PM
Description: Toronto left wing James van Riemsdyk should be targeted in the middle rounds of drafts heading into the 2014-15 season.
Insight: Coming off a career-high 61 points (30 goals, 31 assists), van Riemsdyk is really starting to come into his own. Still only 25-years-old, his numbers should still continue to trend up.

Description: Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneuf could be on the trading block this summer. SOURCE: Toronto Sun
Insight: Phaneuf underachieved last season, producing only 31 points in 80 games. After four and a half years in Toronto, maybe it's time for a change of scenery.

Insight: With just three assists and no goals in 30 games, Ashton is not on any fantasy radar screens, but he did rack up 18 points (13 goals) in 16 AHL games.
Jake Gardiner, D3/12/2014 9:19:00 AM
Description: Jake Gardiner accounted for both Toronto goals Tuesday in a loss to San Jose.
Insight: The 26 and a half minutes of ice time he logged was a season-high. Gardiner has now scored in two of his last three games. He'll have a chance to make it three out of four Thursday against Los Angeles.

Description: Toronto left winger Carter Ashton has been recalled from the AHL.
Insight: With just three assists and no goals in 30 games, Ashton is not on any fantasy radar screens, but he did rack up 18 points (13 goals) in 16 AHL games, so he's worth watching.
Tyler Bozak, C3/5/2014 10:22:00 PM
Description: Leafs center Tyler Bozak netted two goals including the game-winner Wednesday against New York.
Insight: Wednesday was a night of firsts for Bozak. The penalty shot he made on Henrik Lundqvist was the first of his career while Bozak's overtime goal was also his first in 278 career games. The victory snapped a three-game losing streak for Toronto.

Phil Kessel, RWHot2/27/2014 9:58:00 PM
Description: After putting up five goals and three assists for Team USA in Sochi to win best forward of the tournament, Toronto winger Phil Kessel had a goal and an assist Thursday in the Maple Leafs' first game back.

Dion Phaneuf, DHot2/27/2014 9:58:00 PM
Description: Toronto defenseman Dion Phaneuf's goal on Thursday was his first since Jan. 25.
Insight: The 28-year-old's scoring has slipped this season, as he has put up just six goals and 23 points in 59 games. He does have 114 SOG, 87 PIM and a +20 rating, however, so he still has good fantasy value.

Description: Toronto winger Joffrey Lupul scored a goal Thursday against the Islanders.
Insight: Lupul only has 35 points (18 goals) in 52 games after contributing 36 goals and 85 points in 82 games over his previous two seasons.
Tyler Bozak, CHot2/27/2014 9:49:00 PM
Description: Maple Leafs center Tyler Bozak had two assists Thursday against the Islanders.

Description: Maple Leafs winger James van Riemsdyk is questionable for Thursday's game against the NY Islanders after missing Wednday's practice due to a bruised hand.
Insight: van Riemsdyk 47 points (24 G, 23 A) and 197 SOG in 58 games, so he'd be tough to replace.
Dave Bolland, C2/26/2014 4:54:00 PM
Description: Maple Leafs center Dave Bolland (ankle) suffered a setback in his recovery, according to theglobeandmail.com. He's questionable for Thursday's game against the Islanders.

Description: Maple Leafs right wing Phil Kessel has four goals and seven points for the United States.
Insight: Its a continuation of his NHL hot streak that saw him produce 30 points in his last 20 games. T.J. Oshie is getting most of the media attention, but Kessel is a huge post of the USA offense.

Description: Maple Leafs winger James van Riemsdyk has set career highs in goals, assists and SOG this season.
Insight: van Riemsdyk scored his 24th goal of the season and took two shots Saturday against the Canucks, giving him 47 points and 197 SOG in 58 games.
Phil Kessel, RWHot2/8/2014 9:31:00 PM
Description: Maple Leafs right wing Phil Kessel has produced 27 points in his last 15 games.
Insight: Kessel is as hot as it gets right now. He had two more points (one goal) Saturday and now has 65 points and 227 SOG in 60 games. His 31 goals rank second in the NHL.
Dave Bolland, C2/8/2014 10:02:00 AM
Description: Maple Leafs center Dave Bolland (ankle) should return after the Olympic break.
Insight: He skated with the team on Wednesday, but with one game remaining before the break it would make no sense to rush him back onto the ice. Bolland has 10 points in 15 games plus 18 PIM and 27 SOG so he certainly has fantasy value when he returns.
Carter Ashton, LW2/8/2014 10:00:00 AM
Description: Toronto left winger Carter Ashton is on injured reserve due to a hand injury.
Insight: With just three assists and no goals in 30 games, Ashton is not on any fantasy radar screens.

Insight: With just three assists and no goals in 30 games, Ashton is not on any fantasy radar screens.
Phil Kessel, RW2/2/2014 9:10:00 AM
Description: Maple Leafs right wing Phil Kessel notched his second hat trick of the season Saturday in a win over Ottawa.

Dave Bolland, C1/31/2014 7:32:00 PM
Description: Maple Leafs center Dave Bolland (ankle) gave himself 50-50 odds to return before the Olympic break, according to Jonas Siegel of tsn.ca.
Insight: Bolland took a skate to the back of his leg back in early November which severed a tendon on the outside of his left ankle. He took part in his first full practice since the injury on Friday. Toronto has four games left before the break.
James van Riemsdyk, LWHot1/30/2014 10:09:00 PM
Description: Maple Leafs winger James van Riemsdyk had two points (one goal) Thursday against Florida.

David Clarkson, RW1/29/2014 4:46:00 PM
Description: Toronto right wing David Clarkson (elbow) left practice after 15 minutes Wednesday. It was his first practice since undergoing minor surgery to alleviate an elbow infection. SOURCE: Jonas Siegel, tsn.ca
Insight: Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said it isn't a good sign that Clarkson had to exit practice, as it wasn't part of his rehab plan. Clarkson may end up sitting out until after the Olympic break.
Nazem Kadri, C1/28/2014 10:04:00 PM
Description: Leafs center Nazem Kadri scored two goals in an eight-minute stretch during the second period Tuesday against the Lightning.
Insight: Kadri's six shots on net were a season-high. The 23-year-old has been a relative disappointment this season but maybe Tuesday's performance will set the tone for a strong second half.
Phil Kessel, RWHot1/22/2014 9:43:00 PM
Description: Toronto right wing Phil Kessel has produced 14 points (six goals) during a seven-game points streak.
Insight: Kessel is making up for slumping from Oct. 30 to Jan. 9 (just 20 points in 32 games) in a big way and is now back up to 1.0 ppg (52 points in 52 games). Kessel is third in the NHL with 201 SOG.

Tyler Bozak, CHot1/14/2014 9:56:00 PM
Description: Tyler Bozak beat Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask twice Tuesday in a 4-3 Maple Leafs victory.

David Clarkson, RW1/14/2014 6:58:00 PM
Description: Toronto right wing David Clarkson (flu) will play Tuesday. SOURCE: Jonas Siegel, TSN 1050

Description: Toronto right wing David Clarkson is back after missing Tuesday's game with a foot injury. SOURCE: Jonas Seigel, TSN 1050

David Clarkson, RW1/5/2014 10:23:00 AM
Description: Leafs right wing David Clarkson left Saturday's game against the NY Rangers after taking a shot by Michael Del Zotto off the foot.
Insight: Clarkson has three goals and five assists in 31 games this season. A minus rating and just 59 shots don't help him get onto a fantasy roster. He last had fantasy value in 2011 when he put the puck in the net 30 times.
Carl Gunnarsson, D1/5/2014 10:20:00 AM
Description: Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Carl Gunnarsson left Saturday's game against the NY Rangers with an upper body injury.

Description: The NHL fined Toronto winger Joffrey Lupul $10,000 for his cross-check of Detroit's Patrick Eaves, accordingto Darren Dreger of tsn.ca.

Joffrey Lupul, RW1/2/2014 4:49:00 PM
Description: Toronto winger Joffrey Lupul will have a phone hearing with the NHL Friday for cross-checking Detroit's Patrick Eaves on Wednesday.
Insight: Lupul's stick made contact with Eaves' head and neck during the first period Wednesday and he spent two minutes in the penalty box. The winger said after the game that he didn't mean to cross-check Eaves so high. Lupul was suspended for two games last season for a head shot on Tampa Bay's Victor Hedman and the NHL will probably take that into account when deciding his punishment.
Jonathan Bernier, GHot1/1/2014 5:59:00 PM
Description: Maple Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier made 41 saves on 43 shots in 65 minutes and then won the shootout Wednesday in the NHL Winter Classic in Michigan Stadium.
Insight: Bernier has been excellent as of late to reestablish himself as the No. 1 goaltender in Toronto. Over his last six games, Bernier has gone 3-1-2 with a 1.84 GAA and a .950 SV%. Bernier's .931 SV% ranks fifth in the NHL this season.

Description: As expected, Maple Leafs center Tyler Bozak will return from an oblique Sunday against the Hurricanes. SOURCE: Jonas Siegel, TSN 1050
Insight: Bozak hasn't played since December 3rd. With 11 points in 16 games this season, Bozak is certainly worth a look in most fantasy formats.
Jonathan Bernier, G12/23/2013 10:35:00 PM
Description: Maple Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier stopped 42 of 43 shots in 65 minutes Monday but he couldn't stop the Rangers in the shootout.
