The Maple Leafs have loaned Malgin to Lausanne HC of the Swiss league. Malgin was a rotational player for the Panthers and Maple Leafs in 2019-20, totaling four goals and 12 points in 44 games split between the two clubs. He'll return to Toronto ahead of next season's training camp, but he'll likely fill a similar role in 2020-21, so he won't be a viable fantasy option.
Malgin agreed to terms on a one-year, $700,000 contract with Toronto on Friday. Malgin -- who was acquired via trade from Florida in February -- was limited to just eight regular-season contests for Toronto in which he registered three shots, nine hits and a minus-3 rating while averaging 10:21 of ice time. The Swiss international could struggle for minutes next season, especially if the club brings back Kyle Clifford and/or Jason Spezza.
Malgin (undisclosed) practiced with the team Monday. Malgin skated on the fifth line in Monday's practice session, so fantasy players shouldn't be expecting him to see much in terms of minutes this postseason. Even if somebody else gets hurt, the Swiss native is likely behind Nicolas Petan and Frederik Gauthier on the organizational depth chart.
Malgin (undisclosed) wasn't on the ice for Monday's training camp session, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports. Considering Malgin went pointless in his last eight games, he likely won't offer much in terms of fantasy value even if he does play during the play-in series clash with Columbus. Even healthy, the winger is far from a lock to play and could find himself watching from the press box.
Malgin was acquired by Toronto from Florida on Wednesday in exchange for Mason Marchment. The move to bring in Malgin comes as the Leafs announced Andreas Johnsson (knee) underwent knee surgery and will miss the next six months. While the 22-year-old Malgin won't be a straight replacement for Johnsson, he at least should provide Toronto with some added depth scoring. The Switzerland native figures to slot into a bottom-six role, perhaps as early as Thursday's matchup with Pittsburgh.
