Top Wayne Simmonds News

  • Maple Leafs' Wayne Simmonds: Slides helper Tuesday

    Simmonds recorded an assist and three hits in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Golden Knights.

    Simmonds set up Ilya Mihkeyev's second-period tally. With assists in consecutive games, Simmonds is starting to chip in more regularly on offense. The 33-year-old is still seeing limited playing time -- he's played fewer than nine minutes in each of the last three contests. The winger's at 12 points, 51 hits, 50 shots on net, 40 PIM and a plus-1 rating in 33 contests. Given his bottom-six role, he's a risky option at best in most fantasy formats.

  • Maple Leafs' Wayne Simmonds: Clears protocols

    Simmonds exited the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Monday.

    Simmonds has recorded three goals and three assists through his last 10 appearances prior to entering protocols. With three Leafs' right-wingers missing time already, he will be a welcome sight on the ice and could see an expanded role.

  • Maple Leafs' Wayne Simmonds: On protocols list

    Simmonds was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Friday.

    The Maple Leafs now have four players on the protocols list. Simmonds will need to provide two negative tests to return.

  • Maple Leafs' Wayne Simmonds: Deposits goal in win

    Simmonds scored a goal and added three hits in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Oilers.

    Simmonds' tally at 8:47 of the second period stood as the game-winner. The winger is up to four goals, six assists, 48 shots on net, 44 hits and 40 PIM through 29 contests, surpassing his nine-point output from 38 outings last season. Even with the uptick in production, Simmonds plays in a bottom-six role and shouldn't be relied on for steady offense.

  • Maple Leafs' Wayne Simmonds: Scores again Sunday

    Simmonds scored a goal on three shots in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Ducks.

    Simmonds added insurance after William Nylander scored an empty-net goal late in the third period. The 33-year-old Simmonds is on a modest three-game point streak with two goals and two helpers in that span. He's up to eight points, 40 shots, 34 hits and 15 PIM through 22 contests. As long as Ondrej Kase (upper body) is out, Simmonds will see extra playing time on the third line, which has worked out well so far.

  • Maple Leafs' Wayne Simmonds: Buries goal in win

    Simmonds scored a goal and added two hits in Friday's 4-1 win over the Sharks.

    The Wayne Train is rolling through California, as he's picked up a goal and two assists in the last two games against the Kings and the Sharks. The 33-year-old winger has two goals, five helpers, 37 shots on net, 33 hits and 15 PIM in 21 contests overall. Outside of toughness and a little secondary scoring, though, Simmonds probably isn't going to add much for fantasy managers.

  • Maple Leafs' Wayne Simmonds: Offers pair of helpers

    Simmonds notched two assists, two shots on net and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 6-2 win over the Kings.

    Simmonds was involved in the Maple Leafs' first two goals. The 33-year-old got into the NHL with the Kings back in 2008-09, so this was likely a fun game for him to show up on offense. In 20 contests this year, Simmonds has six points, 36 shots, 31 hits, 15 PIM and a plus-1 rating. He'll continue to provide toughness in a bottom-six role.

  • Maple Leafs' Wayne Simmonds: Pretty redirect lights lamp

    Simmonds scored a goal in a 3-1 win over Ottawa on Saturday.

    It was a beautiful redirect from the slot. Simmonds will see limited ice time in Toronto this season, but some of that will be on the second power-play unit. And that means Simmonds will have spot fantasy value in deep leagues with the right matchup.

  • Maple Leafs' Wayne Simmonds: Inks two-year pact

    Simmonds agreed to terms on a two-year, $1.8 million contract with Toronto on Tuesday.

    Simmonds ended the year bogged down in a 16-game goal drought during which he managed just one assist while averaging 12:06 of ice time. For the first time in his NHL career, the 32-year-old Simmonds failed to top the 10-point mark in part due to injuries that limited him to a mere 38 games. While he is unlikely to get back to being a 60-point producer, Simmonds should be capable of garnering 20-30 points in the coming season.

  • Maple Leafs' Wayne Simmonds: Snaps long point drought

    Simmonds recorded an assist and two hits in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Canadiens in Game 5.

    Simmonds set up the first of Jake Muzzin's two goals in the third period. That assist snapped a 13-game point drought for Simmonds, which dated back to his goal in a 5-3 win over the Jets on April 22. The winger has picked up 10 hits, seven shots on net and a plus-1 rating through five postseason contests.

  • Maple Leafs' Wayne Simmonds: Dry spell continues

    Simmonds has gone six games without a point and has one assist in his last 13.

    Simmonds brings an important edge to the Leafs' bottom six, but he hasn't delivered much offense. He has nine points (two goals, seven assists) in 35 games. As the team heads toward the postseason, Simmonds is likely on the outside for playing time unless there's an injury.

  • Maple Leafs' Wayne Simmonds: Snaps six-game point drought

    Simmonds scored a goal in Toronto's 5-3 win over Winnipeg on Thursday.

    Simmonds snapped a six-game point slump and seven-game goal drought. The Leafs are shuffling around lines because of Zach Hyman's knee injury and the arrival of Nick Foligno, so the next few games could feature Simmonds in different roles. He brings speed and ferocity to whatever line he's on, so if he sticks on a higher line, he could be a late-season offensive surprise.

  • Maple Leafs' Wayne Simmonds: First goal since return

    Simmonds scored a goal and added two PIM in Monday's 5-3 win over the Flames.

    Simmonds scored his first goal in nine games since he returned from a wrist injury. The 32-year-old winger has six tallies and a helper in 21 appearances this season. He's added 32 hits, 28 PIM and a minus-3 rating in a bottom-six role, which is likely to have only limited appeal in fantasy.

  • Maple Leafs' Wayne Simmonds: Ready to rock

    Simmonds (wrist) will be activated off long-term injured reserve and return to the lineup for Friday's game versus the Flames, Joshua Kloke of The Athletic Toronto reports.

    Simmonds has been sidelined since early February with a broken wrist, but he's been skating for nearly two weeks, so he shouldn't have any limitations against Calgary. The 32-year-old bruiser is expected to skate on Toronto's fourth line and top power-play unit Friday.

  • Maple Leafs' Wayne Simmonds: Making strong progress

    Head coach Sheldon Keefe said Monday that Simmonds (wrist) has been practicing on his own and is ramping up his conditioning, David Alter of The Hockey News reports.

    Simmonds' broken wrist is healed, and he recently had his cast removed. The 32-year-old is now focusing on getting back into game shape before rejoining the team at practice. Since he was handed a six-week timeline back in early February, he'll likely need at least two more weeks before re-entering the lineup. When he's healthy, Simmonds typically adds a strong physical presence, but he also contributed five goals on 20 shots through 12 games this season.

  • Maple Leafs' Wayne Simmonds: Lands on LTIR

    Simmonds (wrist) has been placed on long-term injured reserve, per CapFriendly.

    Simmonds is expected to be sidelined for at least six weeks with a broken wrist, so this move was expected. Alexander Barabanov will likely have an expanded role for the duration of Simmonds' absence.

  • Maple Leafs' Wayne Simmonds: Suffers broken wrist

    Simmonds sustained a broken wrist, which will sideline him for at least six weeks, David Alter of The Hockey News reports.

    Given Simmonds' extended layoff, he figures to find himself on injured reserve in the coming days. In fact, based on his timeline, the veteran will miss well beyond the 10-game requirement for long-term injured reserve, which would afford the Leafs some cap space to fill out the roster. Several candidates could be in line to replace Simmonds in a top-six role, including Alexander Barabanov and Ilya Mikheyev.

  • Maple Leafs' Wayne Simmonds: Could face lengthy absence

    Simmonds may miss up to six weeks after suffering an apparent hand injury during Saturday's win over the Canucks, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Simmonds lit the lamp twice before suffering the injury, bringing his season total to five goals through 12 games. The team hasn't revealed specifics about Simmonds' injury. They'll likely provide more detail before Monday's matchup against the Canucks.

  • Maple Leafs' Wayne Simmonds: Leaves Saturday's game

    Simmonds left Saturday's game versus the Canucks with an apparent hand injury, Kristen Shilton of reports.

    Simmonds scored twice on five shots before departing in the third period with the hand injury. With the injury occurring so late in the game, there may not be an update on the winger's status from head coach Sheldon Keefe after the contest. Consider Simmonds day-to-day for now.
