  • Polak will serve as a healthy scratch for Wednesday night's game against the Ducks, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports. The Czech defenseman played in all four games since inking a one-year, $1.1 million contract with the Leafs on Oct. 22, but he'll watch this next one from the press box in favor of Connor Carrick. Since this move concerns the team's low-end blueliners, it's not going to cause a stir in the fantasy realm.

  • Polak signed a one-year, $1.1 million deal with the Maple Leafs on Sunday. Polak played 75 games with Toronto last season, scoring four goals and 11 points. This is most likely just a depth signing and it remains to be seen whether the 31-year-old blueliner will be an every-day player or not.

  • Roman Polak: Not offered contract

    Polak may not be getting a contract from the Leafs, but will be invited to continue practicing with the team, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports. Polak is attempting to make a comeback from a lower-leg injury the cut his 2016-17 season short. It appears the blueliner wasn't able to show enough to convince team brass that he is back to 100 percent, but general manager Lou Lamoriello isn't ready to completely cut ties. If the 31-year-old is open to remaining with the club as a practice participant, he could still earn a permanent contract down the road.

  • Polak (lower leg) is listed on the team's roster for Saturday's preseason finale against Detroit. Polak joined the Maple Leafs on a professional tryout, but has been sidelined for much of camp due to the lower-leg issue. He will get an opportunity to showcase his skills in the finale, but there's no guarantee the blueliner will be a member of the Leafs' Opening Night roster.

  • Polak (lower leg) will not be ready to make his preseason debut during Wednesday's game against the Canadiens, but he should be ready to play soon, James Mirtle of The Athletic reports. Attending Leafs camp on a PTO, Polak's future with the team remains uncertain at this point, as he hasn't had a chance to show that he can keep up with this defensive corps despite his surgically repaired leg. Regardless of whether he makes the roster, the 31-year-old has built his reputation on being a stout defensive presence, making him an unappealing option in most fantasy formats.
