  • Maple Leafs' Mark Giordano: Week-to-week

    Giordano suffered a broken finger versus Florida on Tuesday and is week-to-week, according to

    Giordano's loss won't be significant as far as his fantasy value is concerened as he has just one goal, four assists, 50 blocked shots and 24 hits this year, but his presence will be missed on the Maple Leafs' blue line. Look for William Lagesson to return to the lineup against Seattle on Thursday after he was a healthy scratch Tuesday against the Panthers.

  • Maple Leafs' Mark Giordano: Won't play Thursday

    Giordano is being evaluated for a hand injury, and he'll miss Thursday's game against Seattle at a minimum, coach Sheldon Keefe told Jonas Siegel of The Athletic on Wednesday.

    Giordano was injured during Tuesday's 2-1 shootout win over Florida. He has a goal and five points in 20 contests this season. With Giordano out Thursday, William Lagesson will likely draw back into the lineup.

    Giordano (upper body) won't return to Tuesday's game versus the Panthers.

    Giordano was injured in the first period of the contest. The 40-year-old defenseman has two assists over his last four games while holding down a top-four role. If he can't suit up Thursday versus the Kraken, William Lagesson will likely take Giordano's place in the lineup.

  • Maple Leafs' Mark Giordano: Registers assist in win

    Giordano recorded an assist in a 4-3 overtime victory over Minnesota on Sunday.

    Giordano ended his five-game pointless streak but is still mired in a nine-game goal drought during which he recorded a meager seven shots. With his minimal offensive production, the defenseman could be in danger of being dropped from the second power-play unit once John Klingberg (undisclosed) returns to action. Giordano has averaged just 24 seconds of power-play time per game in November, so his role with the man advantage is already quite limited as is.

  • Maple Leafs' Mark Giordano: Collects first helper

    Giordano recorded an assist, four shots on goal and three blocked shots in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Blackhawks.

    The assist was Giordano's first point through three games this season. The 40-year-old defenseman saw a season-high 17:10 of ice time Monday, but he's been firmly on the third pairing to begin the year. He's added five hits, seven blocked shots, six shots on goal and an even plus-minus rating. With little chance of getting power-play time, Giordano has minimal fantasy value in his current role.

  • Maple Leafs' Mark Giordano: Motivated to show he's still got it

    Giordano is using his poor finish to 2022-23 as motivation heading into this season, reports The Athletic. His ice time dropped from 19 minutes per game during the regular season last year to eight-to-nine minutes by the end of the postseason.

    Skating 19 minutes per night is tough for a lot of players, let alone one who will soon be 40 and the oldest player in the NHL. Giordano has recognized that he needs to better rest and recover between games, and "maybe pay attention a bit more to the science with our guys... I think the game's changing so you have to (too)." He's referring to the Leafs' sport science team and the analytics they produce. Giordano's fantasy value is behind him, but he can help his team make a run in the playoffs. That is, if he can prove that last postseason was an outlier.

  • Maple Leafs' Mark Giordano: Claims shot-blocking crown

    Giordano scored a goal and blocked two shots in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Kraken.

    Giordano got the Maple Leafs on the board in the first period, beating Philipp Grubauer five-hole to tie the game at 1-1.

For the season, he's at 22 points, 86 shots on net, 115 blocked shots, 47 PIM and a plus-24 rating while hanging onto a top-four role.
