Marincin hasn't been able to crack the lineup for nine straight games. Marincin has only played in four games since the start of February. He can't help you if he's in a business suit.
Marincin has been a healthy scratch since Toronto's win over Boston on Feb. 4. He's not hurt; he just can't crack the lineup. Marincin did dress as a forward at practice this week to balance numbers, but it doesn't make him more valuable. He can't get out of coach Mike Babcock's dog house.
Marincin (lower body) will rejoin the lineup Saturday, when the Maple Leafs play host to the Senators, David Alter of The Athletic reports. This will the Slovak's first game since sustaining the injury Dec. 10, in a road clash with the Bruins. A no-frills blueliner, Marincin should reprise his role as a penalty-killing specialist, reportedly lining up alongside Nikita Zaitsev to form the second pair in this next contest. Marincin contributed five points in 16 games -- along with an impressive 7.1 shooting percentage -- which is quite the fine pace; hopefully he can pick up where he left off.
Marincin (lower body) is listed on Toronto's injured reserve list, per the NHL's official media site. Considering the timetable for Marincin's injury, this is not an especially surprising move as the Leafs will now be afforded some flexibility with their roster until the Czech blueliner can return. Frank Corrado stands to see more ice time while Marincin remains on the shelf.
Marincin has been ruled out for 4-to-6 weeks with a lower-body injury, Paul Hendrick of Leafs TV reports. This lower-body ailment is just the latest injury for Marincin, who has already missed 13 contests this year and will be sidelined for at least another month. When healthy, the defenseman has been relatively productive with five points and 14 shots on goal in 16 outings. Concerns about the 24-year-old's ability to stay healthy make him a risky play in most fantasy formats.
