  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Slated for action
    By RotoWire Staff

    Matthews (upper body) took part in warmups ahead of Saturday's game against Montreal and appears ready to play, Mark Masters of TSN reports. All eyes were on the American dynamo ahead of puck drop, as it appeared that Matthews would be ready to return after a four-game absence. Matthews, who has 10 goals and 10 assists in 17 games, will center the team's top line, being flanked by Zach Hyman and William Nylander.

  • Matthews (upper body) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's road contest against the Canadiens, the Toronto Star reports. The Maple Leafs have crafted a five-game winning streak despite the uber-talented Matthews being held out for the last four. He reportedly turned in his second full practice of the week Friday, but the star forward added, "Your feel for everything is coming back, but I'm still a ways off from where I was at." Consider setting your daily lineups as late as possible to account for a possible Matthews return Saturday.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Status quo
    By RotoWire Staff

    Matthews (upper body) told reporters there has been "no decision yet," on whether he'll be available against Montreal on Saturday, Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun reports. Matthews continues to practice with the team, including taking line rushes, but with no update on his status, fantasy owners will have to wait until closer to puck drop Saturday. Despite the star center's absence, the Leafs continue to roll with wins in all four games without him.

  • Matthews (upper body) will not be available against the Devils on Thursday, Kristen Shilton of reports. Matthews will miss his fourth straight outing as he continues to recover from his upper-body malady. The Leafs remain undefeated during the center's absence and will look to continue rolling versus New Jersey. With Matthews sidelined, Nikita Soshnikov will slot into the lineup.

  • Matthews (upper body) will meet with team doctors Thursday to determine his status against the Devils, James Mirtle of The Athletic Toronto reports. Fortunately for Leafs fans, the team won all three of its matchups without Matthews in the lineup -- potting 11 goals in those outings. Prior to getting hurt, the Arizona native recorded 19 points, a plus-14 rating and 53 shots on goal in just 16 outings and figures to resume his spot on Toronto's top line once cleared to play.
