  • Maple Leafs' Josh Leivo: Secures extension
    By RotoWire Staff

    Leivo inked a one-year, $925,000 contract extension Friday. Its an interesting move by Toronto considering Leivo has played in just five games this season, recording a lone helper, seven shots on goal and three blocks while averaging 11:52 of ice time. The winger was scheduled to be a free agent following the 2017-18 season with this move tying him to the club for at least one more year.

  • Leivo was included among seven forwards protected by the Maple Leafs in advance of the upcoming NHL expansion draft. Leivo spent most of last season on the team's black aces and rarely got into a game. But when he did, he produced -- Leivo tallied 10 points (two goals, eight assists) in 13 games. It remains to be seen if this guarantees him a job with the Leafs next season or if it just means general manager Lou Lamoriello wants him as part of an upcoming trade (rather than losing him for nothing to Vegas).

  • Leivo (undisclosed) is projected to be a healthy scratch for Thursday night's clash with the Lightning, reports. While it's good to see that Leivo is presumably no longer dealing with an injury, his days as a healthy scratch have apparently returned -- the 23-year-old sat 10 games in a row before being injured in the first action he saw on March 23. Between that and his paltry 10 points on the season, he's not a recommend fantasy play at this juncture.

  • Maple Leafs' Josh Leivo: Out Monday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Leivo (undisclosed) will be held out of Monday's contest in Buffalo, Paul Hendrick of Leafs TV reports. Leivo didn't take line rushes during Monday's morning skate, indicating that he'll miss his second consecutive game. Despite only playing 13 games, Leivo has been a pleasant surprise for the Leafs this season, logging two goals and 10 points. Toronto's lineup will likely continue as is until Leivo is ready to return.

  • Leivo (undisclosed) left Tuesday morning's skate early, making him unlikely to play Tuesday night's game against the Panthers, the Toronto Sun reports. While it's disappointing that Leivo is scheduled to miss his second consecutive game, it's encouraging to see him take the ice for practice at all, which potentially indicates that what he's dealing with isn't overly serious. Leivo scored in his first game in almost a month before going down with the injury, so hopefully this ailment won't kill his momentum.
