Corrado found the net for the first time this season to go with five hits and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's overtime win over the Ducks. Corrado -- who turns 23 on Saturday -- has now scored exactly one NHL goal in three consecutive seasons and he'd gone nine straight without a point before this one. The hits came out of nowhere, too -- Corrado had gone seven straight games without one before racking 'em up in this one against the notoriously physical Ducks. It's a nice moment, but there isn't much to see here from a fantasy perspective.
Corrado played in just two games in January. He saw just 5:39 of ice time in his last outing, but managed two shots. He also picked up a minor penalty for interference. Corrado is a young defender whose future lies in the bottom pairing. Right now, he's stuck in the press box because he can't cut a break on the Leafs' right side and he won't clear waivers if the Buds try to send him to the AHL. Corrado's game would be much better served by playing every day, but that probably won't happen this season.
Corrado will be in the lineup Tuesday night, opposing the Coyotes on the road, Paul Hendrick of Leafs TV reports. Corrado will see game action with Matt Hunwick out Tuesday due to an illness. Corrado is quick on his skates and figures to add some energy to the blue line for the Buds. His fantasy value is severely limited, however, as the 22-year-old defenseman has just three points in 30 career games.
Corrado returned to practice with the Leafs Thursday following his seven game conditioning stint with AHL Toronto, TSN's Mark Masters reports. Corrado tallied three assists in the seven games he took part in during his conditioning stint with AHL Toronto. His first chance to draw into the Leafs' lineup will come Friday against Detroit.
Corrado was sent down to AHL Toronto on a conditioning sting Thursday, Sportnet's Chris Johnston reports. Corrado has yet to draw into the Leafs' lineup this season. He'll head to AHL Toronto in an attempt to get his game jump started, and will return to the Maple Leafs no later than Nov. 5.
