Maple Leafs' Zach Aston-Reese: Scores Sunday

He fired three shots and blocked one, too, in 13:27 of ice time. Aston-Reese isn't known for his scoring -- this goal was his first in seven games.

Aston-Reese scored a goal on two shots against the Flyers on Wednesday.
Aston-Reese picked up his first point of the season after having been blanked in his previous eight contests for the Leafs.

Aston-Reese (illness) will make his Ducks debut against Chicago on Wednesday, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
Aston-Reese missed Pittsburgh's previous four contests due to his illness but is now ready to play for his new club. Considering the 27-year-old center has scored just twice in 52 games this year, along with nine helpers, few fantasy players will be impacted by his return to the lineup. The Staten Island native should be in line for a bottom-six role but could push for the top six before hitting free agency this summer.... See More ... See Less
