    Maple Leafs' Roman Polak: Makes rare scoresheet appearance

    Polak tallied a pair of assists Tuesday in a 4-3 overtime win against Boston. He added a plus-2 rating, four blocks and two hits. Those blocks and hits are the crux of Polak's fantasy value, as the veteran blueliner has never been known for producing many points. In fact, he'd picked up just one (his only goal of the year) over the last 10 games coming in. His ice time's been up over the 20-minute mark in seven consecutive games now, but Polak's job is generally to keep the puck out of his own net, which puts a sharp upper limit on his fantasy value.

    Maple Leafs' Roman Polak: First goal in over a year

    Polak scored his first goal of the season in Tuesday's win over Philadelphia. It was his first goal since Jan. 15, 2015. Yes, that's more than a year. Polak did miss time at the end of last season because of injury, but he's never been a guy to contribute to offensive fantasy categories. He does deliver hits, blocks and penalty minutes, so your format decides his value.

    Maple Leafs' Roman Polak: Two assists, five hits and plus-3

    Polak picked up two assists and finished plus-3 with five hits in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Blues. Polak was drafted by St. Louis and spent parts of eight seasons with the team, so it looks like he was a bit inspired to play his old squad. Polak won't deliver much by way of offence, but he will rattle teeth to the tune of more than 250 hits. There is some value in that.

    Maple Leafs' Roman Polak: Shot-blocking machine

    Polak has blocked 42 shots in 21 games this season, including a couple of recent cannons from Alex Ovechkin on Saturday night and one from Zdeno Chara earlier in the week. He only has three points in 21 games, so he won't bring you much value in traditional stats. But Polak's your man if you need cheap and cheerful blocked shots -- he's on target to hit the 150 mark this year, barring injury.
