Boyes (upper body) will rejoin the lineup Saturday against the Bruins, Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun reports.
Boyes' injury lasted longer than expected, but his return is finally on deck Saturday. The Canadian Press' Jonas Siegel reports that 33-year-old winger is expected to replace Josh Leivo on a line with Tyler Bozak and Ben Smith, but his bottom-six minutes (11:55 average) leave him largely off the fantasy radar.
Boyes (upper body) is not ready to return and will miss Thursday's game against the Ducks, but coach Mike Babcock expects him to return Saturday when the Maple Leafs host the Bruins, Mark Masters of TSN reports.
Boyes has been sidelined longer than he hoped, but it appears the return may be just around the corner. Expect another update on the 33-year-old winger's status prior to Saturday's puck drop, but with just 22 points through 51 games this season, Boyes' return shouldn't impact much in terms of fantasy.
Boyes (upper body) is expected to play Thursday against the Ducks, Paul Hendrick of Leafs TV reports.
Boyes -- who last suited up on March 7 -- will miss Monday's game against the Flames, but barring a setback it looks like he'll be back in action Thursday. To date, the 33-year-old winger has notched eight goals and 22 points in 51 games for the Leafs.
Boyes (undisclosed) will not suit up for Tuesday's matchup with Tampa Bay, Mark Masters of TSN reports.
Boyes has seen action in just one game in the last six, but was able to bend the twine in that contest for his eighth tally of the season. Injuries have taken a toll on the winger this campaign, as Tuesday will be his 18th missed game on the year. When he gets back on the ice, Boyes is worth consideration in deep formats.
Boyes (undisclosed) didn't take part in line rushes pregame warmups, indicating he won't play Saturday against the Senators, Paul Hendrick of Leafs TV reports.
Boyes has been bothered by an undisclosed ailment of late, and remains without a definitive timetable for his return to action. The Maple Leafs should provide an update on the 33-year-old winger's status once he's fit to play.
Boyes (undisclosed) is doubtful for Wednesday's tilt against the Islanders, Paul Hendrick of Leafs TV reports.
Boyes missed a pair of games last week with an upper-body injury, but he was able to return Monday and pot a goal in 11:33 worth of ice time, so it's unclear if he re-aggravated the original ailment. He should be considered day-to-day for the time being, with his next chance to slot back into the lineup coming Saturday against the Senators.
Boyes (upper body) will return to the lineup Monday against the Sabres, Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star reports.
Boyes skipped the last two contests due to the issues, but the veteran winger will add some forward depth to the lineup Monday in his return. He's seen a bump in ice time since joining the Maple Leafs, playing 15:15 in his last contest compared to just 11:56 on average. It's possible that will continue, but the return of Milan Michalek (finger) on Monday could also result in a bump out of the top six. If that's the case, his ice time may also drop again, resulting in a lessening of fantasy value.
Boyes (upper body) expects to be healthy Monday to take on Buffalo, Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun reports.
After missing the last two games, the veteran forward should enter the lineup if healthy. Boyes had a stretch of five games as a healthy scratch from Jan. 23-Feb. 4, but has been fairly productive since, recording seven points in 12 games.
Boyes (upper body) didn't take part in line rushes during pregame warmups, indicating he won't play Saturday against the Senators, Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun reports.
Brendan Leipsic will once again draw into the lineup Saturday in Boyes' absence. The 33-year-old winger will hope to return to action Monday against the Sabres.
Boyes will miss Thursday's game against the Wild due to an upper-body injury.
It's not clear how Boyes sustained the injury, but the Leafs have responded by calling up Brendan Leipsic from AHL Toronto. Boyes should be considered day-to-day ahead of Saturday's home match against the Senators.
Boyes' assist Saturday against Montreal was his seventh point in his last eight games.
He has two goals and five helpers in that span. Boyes has steadily shown that he still deliver depth scoring, even as his feet and game have slowed. There is still a chance the Leafs will trade him by the deadline. But Boyes is likely more valuable in Toronto than in other places -- his role will dip down the depth chart in another city.
Boyes has a point in each of his last two games.
Boyes had spent five games in the media box in late January and early February, but injuries have pushed him back into the lineup. Still, there's little value in an aging veteran who can't push his way onto one of the worst offensive lineups in the league.
Boyes notched his fifth goal of the season in Wednesday's loss to Columbus. He has three goals and one assist in his last seven games.
Boyes' homecoming to the Toronto area has been less than exciting or even productive. He's been a healthy scratch at times, although that's unlikely now given James Van Riemsdyk's long-term injury. The team needs him to step things up a bit more, so perhaps this microburst (well, it is for him) of production will get Boyes back on the radar for those of you in deep leagues.
Boyes scored a goal, added an assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Islanders.
It's pretty impressive that he managed to go plus-2, considering the Isles scored all their goals at even strength. Unfortunately, this was a precious rare productive effort for Boyes -- with just his second multi-point game of the year, he has a meager 11 points in 28 games, limiting his fantasy utility to very deep formats.
Boyes managed to register only two points in December.
Boyes continues to log ice time on the power play, averaging almost two minutes per game, despite registering a mere two assists with the man advantage. The journeyman winger may be an important role player for Toronto, but it doesn't translate to fantasy impact.
Boyes picked up his first goal as a Maple Leaf in Monday's 4-1 win over the Stars.
It may have been his first goal, but Boyes is on a three-game, four-point streak and has six points in his last seven games. His game is coming together quietly and he could provide you with some injury relief ... as long as you 're not counting on power-play production.
Boyes has three assists and a minus-4 rating while averaging 14:01 of ice time in seven games this season.
The veteran's bounced between second- and third-line ice time so far. He's seeing consistent second-unit power-play time, but still hasn't tallied a point on the man advantage this year. Boyes is on a similar pace, points-wise, to what he did with the Panthers last year (and the year before), but he's yet to pot a goal and has just 11 shots, a decent bit short of his usual pace.
Boyes signed a one-year, $700,000 contract with the Maple Leafs on Sunday, Leafs' beat writer Jonas Siegel reports.Boyes signed a professional tryout offer earlier in September with the Leafs, and he was able to beat out fellow veterans Curtis Glencross and Devin Setoguchi for this contract. The 33-year-old Boyes brings plenty of experience to the table and will be a great locker room guy moving forward. During the 2014-15 season, Boyes played in 78 games for the Panthers, finishing with 14 goals and 24 assists.
Boyes scored the game winning goal in Thursday's 4-2 victory over the Bruins.At 32, Boyes has been a veteran presence on the youthful Panthers and while his scoring is off the rate he was a few years ago, his plus-10 rating is second among players still on the team. He's inked for one more year and should continue to help the rest of the team's young players develop while still providing a solid scoring punch on his own.
Boyes scored an unassisted goal in Tuesday's loss to the Bruins.Boyes reached the 36-point mark for the second straight season with his 13th goal of the season on Tuesday. Boyes isn't the same scorer he was a few years ago, when he scored 55 or more points three times in four seasons between 2007 and 2011, but Boyes can still provide a veteran presence. He has limited fantasy value as the Panthers come down the home stretch.
