      Maple Leafs' Shawn Matthias: Nets first goal

      Matthias netted his first goal of the season in Monday's loss to the Coyotes. Matthias was hampered by a shoulder injury that held him out of action for a week, but has collected a point in two of five contests since returning. The 27-year-old has never topped 27 points in a season though, so he shouldn't be a factor in most fantasy leagues.

      Maple Leafs' Shawn Matthias: Returns Friday

      Matthias (shoulder) will play against the Blue Jackets on Friday, The Toronto Sun reports. The news does not come as much of a surprise, as Matthias was expected to suit up after returning to practice Wednesday, but it's still an encouraging development either way. He figures to slot into a top-six role on the wing once again.

      Maple Leafs' Shawn Matthias: Expected to return to lineup Friday

      Matthias (shoulder) is expected to suit up for Friday's tilt against the Blue Jackets. Matthias was held out of Saturday's game against the Senators with the shoulder injury, but returned to practice Wednesday, and is expected to return to action Friday against the Blue Jackets. If he is indeed available, he will likely slot into a top-six role against Columbus.

      Maple Leafs' Shawn Matthias: To practice Wednesday

      Matthias (shoulder) will take part in Wednesday's practice after missing Monday's skate, Mark Masters of TSN reports. After his best NHL season last year for the Canucks, where he scored 18 goals in 78 games, this is an inauspicious start after his move across Canada. He has no points and a minus-2 rating in his first two games in Toronto.

    • Leafs Sign Matthias

      News: Shawn Matthias signed a one-year, $2.3 million contract with the Leafs on Monday, the Province reports.
      Analysis: Shawn Matthias notched 18 goals and nine assists in 78 games with the Canucks this past season, playing mostly on the team's third line. His fantasy upside with the Leafs thus hinges on where he'll slot in with his new team, in addition to whether or not sees more power-play action than he did with Vancouver.
    • Canucks' Matthias Scores In Game 3 Loss

      News: Shawn Matthias scored his first career NHL playoff goal in Sunday's Game 3 loss to Calgary.
      Analysis: A good accomplishment for Shawn Matthias, but unfortunately it couldn't help the canucks, as they fell 4-2 and are now trailing the Flames 2-1 in the series. Skating on the third line, Matthias is a decent depth scorer who can pot 10-20 goals in the regular season. With just 10 NHL playoff games under his belt, don't expect the 27-year-old third-liner to be a huge difference maker for the Canucks in these playoffs.
    • Canucks' Matthias Ready For Playoffs

      News: Shawn Matthias (undisclosed injury) indicated Monday that he will be ready for Wednesday's playoff opener against the Flames.
      Analysis: Shawn Matthias, who last suited up on April 6, participated in Monday's practice and looks good to go for Wednesday's game on the heels of a campaign in which he notched 18 goals and 27 points in 78 contests.
    • Canucks' Matthias Ruled Out For Thursday

      News: Shawn Matthias (undisclosed) will not play Thursday against the Coyotes, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
      Analysis: Coach Willie Desjardins called Shawn Matthias a game-time decision after meeting with the media after Thursday's practice, but the player himself told reporters he wasn't feeling strong enough yet to play. Sven Baertschi will enter the lineup against the Coyotes, but Matthias seemed optimistic about his chances of reclaiming his spot during Saturday's season finale against the Oilers.
    • Canucks' Matthias Misses Practice

      News: Shawn Matthias (undisclosed) was absent from Wednesday's practice, Jon Abbott of TSN 1040 reports.
      Analysis: It's not clear if Shawn Matthias is dealing with any sort of injury or if his absence from Wednesday's practice qualifies as more of a maintenance day. His status should be clarified ahead of Thursday's game against the Coyotes. Regardless, Matthias' recent offensive drought (one point in 11 games) makes him an uninspiring lineup activation in the season's finale week.
    • Canucks' Matthias Pots Goal In Win

      News: Shawn Matthias opened up the scoring with his 18th goal of the season in Monday's 4-1 win over the Blues.
      Analysis: Shawn Matthias had gone ice cold after establishing a new career-high point total as Monday's goal marked his first point in seven games. The 27-year-old also creeped closer to an even rating as he now sits a minus-2 on the season, but his value for fantasy purposes lies more in deeper formats.
