Froese picked up two assists in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Rangers. Froese is making a name for himself with his faceoff acumen, especially while shorthanded. So these points really are a bonus.
Froese is expected to lace his skates Friday night against the Rangers, making it his third consecutive appearance, Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun reports. Froese was a fourth-round draft selection for the Blackhawks in 2009. He plays a physical game and proved capable of denting the scoresheet with the Toronto Marlies of the AHL last season, compiling 18 goals, 24 assists, and a plus-22 rating. He's only two games deep into his NHL career, however, so consider giving Froese time to learn the game at the highest level before deploying him in fantasy circles.
The Maple Leafs reassigned Froese to AHL Toronto on Tuesday, James Mirtle of The Globe and Mail reports. Froese made his NHL debut Saturday against Montreal, logging 12:50 of ice time and two shots on goal. He posted a minus-4 rating during his two-game stay with the big club, however, which may explain why the Maple Leafs have opted to send him down to the AHL. Froese registered an impressive 42 points (18 goals, 24 assists) in 49 games with AHL Toronto last season, and will likely get another chance to suit up for the Maple Leafs at some point this season.
Froese will make his NHL debut Saturday against the Canadiens, Jonas Siegel of TSN 1050 reports. Toronto placed Tyler Bozak (lower body) on injured reserve Friday, which opened up a spot for Froese on the team's 23-man roster. Froese has a ton of offensive upside, as he tallied an impressive 42 points (18 goals, 24 assists) in 49 games with AHL Toronto last season, and is expected to center Michael Grabner and P.A. Parenteau on the Leafs' fourth line Saturday against the Canadiens.
Froese was recalled by the Maple Leafs on Friday. The Leafs placed Tyler Bozak on injured reserve Friday, so Froese will join Toronto's 23-man roster as a depth forward in his absence. Freese tallied an impressive 42 points (18 goals, 24 assists) in 49 games with AHL Toronto last season.
