  • 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: Registers two assists vs. Lightning

    Giordano registered two assists in the Maple Leafs' 5-4 overtime victory over Tampa Bay in Game 4 on Monday.

Still, Giordano chipped in with a respectable four goals and 24 points in 78 appearances during the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Maple Leafs' Mark Giordano: Healthy scratch Saturday

    Giordano will be a healthy scratch in Ottawa on Saturday, Luke Fox of reports.

    Giordano gets a well-deserved night off as the 39-year-old has yet to miss a game this season. Giordano, who set the NHL record for career blocked shots Feb. 26 when he passed Kris Russell, has four goals, 18 assists, 52 hits and 126 blocked shots this season.

  • 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. In the second period, he recorded the 2,045th blocked shot of his career, passing Kris Russell for the most in NHL history, though the league only began consistently tracking that statistic in the 2005-06 season. Nonetheless, it's a massive accomplishment for Giordano, who has long mixed defensive responsibility with a bit of a scoring flair. 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.

  • Maple Leafs' Mark Giordano: Lends helper

    Giordano recorded an assist in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Coyotes.

    Giordano set up an Alex Kerfoot tally in the second period. This was Giordano's fourth straight game with a helper, though his offense may not stay hot once Morgan Rielly is back to his full role as the Maple Leafs' top blueliner. There should still be some space for Giordano to be productive -- he has 12 points, 45 shots on net, 70 blocked shots, 30 hits, 31 PIM and a plus-13 rating through 36 contests this season.

  • Maple Leafs' Mark Giordano: Redirects six shots in win

    Giordano recorded six blocked shots in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Devils.

    Giordano's fearless ways helped the Leafs put an end to the Devils' 13-game winning streak. Unfortunately, he's not doing much for fantasy managers offensively, as his 0.6 points per 60 minutes represents a career low through 15 years of service time.
