Maple Leafs' Frederik Gauthier: Rare goal in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gauthier scored a goal Saturday in a 4-2 win over Vancouver.

It's Gauthier's first goal in 14 games and just his second point in that span. There's just no fantasy value here.

Maple Leafs' Frederik Gauthier: Pots sixth goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gauthier scored a goal and blocked two shots in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Devils.

Gauthier entered this season with six goals over 107 NHL games, and he's already up to six markers through 43 games this year. The 2013 first-round pick (21st overall) is stuck on the fourth line averaging 9:33 per contest, so his production isn't dependable for fantasy purposes.

Maple Leafs' Frederik Gauthier: Ice time dropping
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gauthier's ice time dropped in half in his last two games.

The Goat has proven his skating is no longer a liability and has played in just about every game the Leafs have played. But we had expected his ice time to remain stable around the 10-minute mark given injuries to Trevor Moore, Andreas Johnsson and now Ilya Mikheyev. Gauthier skated just seven shifts in each of his last two games and that resulted in 4:39 and 5:31 of ice time against the Hurricanes and Devils, respectively. His four goals and four assists in 35 games just aren't enough to make him fantasy relevant, and despite his size, he doesn't hit enough to elevate him in specialty categories. He's safe to ignore.

Maple Leafs' Frederik Gauthier: Just two points in 19 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gauthier has just two points (two assists) in his last 19 games.

Under former coach Mike Babcock, the Goat was averaging 11-12 minutes of ice time. But since Sheldon Keefe's arrival, Gauthier's ice time has gone from 8:09 to 12:52, 5:46 and 8:23. He's not blessed with offensive ability, so the ice time drop may be moot to fantasy owners.

Maple Leafs' Frederik Gauthier: Pots goal Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gauthier scored a goal on three shots in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Blues.

Gauthier has scored twice this season, just one shy of the mark he had in 70 contests last season. The Quebec seems to have a firmer grasp on his fourth-line duties, but he still hasn't topped 11 minutes in a game yet. He's fired six shots on goal in four games despite the limited ice time.

Maple Leafs' Frederik Gauthier: Scores goal in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gauthier scored on his only shot Wednesday in Toronto's season-opening 5-3 win over the Senators.

Skating on Toronto's fourth line in the season opener, Gauthier knocked home a loose puck in front of the net to get the Maple Leafs on the board early in the second period. It's an encouraging start for the 24-year-old, who scored only three goals in 70 games in 2018-19.

Maple Leafs' Frederik Gauthier: May keep job on fourth line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gauthier, who has been under pressure since the signing of Jason Spezza, has made a strong case to keep his fourth-line job, maybe even at center, reports The Athletic.

Gauthier looked to have lost his job with the offseason signing of pivot Jason Spezza, who was ostensibly brought in to center the fourth line, win faceoffs and perhaps contribute on the second power-play unit. But Gauthier has made his big-bodied presence felt and shown that offseason skating work has improved his game. This could force Spezza to the wing. Gauthier doesn't have much fantasy value, but could contribute on the ice to kill penalties.

Maple Leafs' Frederik Gauthier: Good to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gauthier (foot) declared himself fit to play in Saturday's game against the Rangers, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.

Gauthier, a bottom-six center, has compiled three goals and nine assists to complement a plus-5 rating over 62 games this season. While he's nothing more than a punt play in DFS settings, Gauthier has shown that he can be an effective producer in such limited action.

Maple Leafs' Frederik Gauthier: Surprise absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gauthier (foot) won't travel with the team on its upcoming two-game road trip.

The news is unexpected as Gauthier hasn't been dealing with any injuries in recent days. The 23-year-old will be re-evaluated Thursday, which means he won't play in the team's next two games. With Gauthier out, Nicolas Petan should likely draw into the lineup barring any callups.

Maple Leafs' Frederik Gauthier: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gauthier (illness) is expected to play Saturday against the Oilers, NHL.com's Derek Van Diest reports.

Gauthier missed Friday's practice due to an illness, but he was never in serious danger of missing Saturday's contest. The 23-year-old will slot into his usual role centering Tyler Ennis and Connor Brown on the Maple Leafs' fourth line against Edmonton.

Maple Leafs' Frederik Gauthier: Dealing with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gauthier is under the weather, but he could be healthy enough to play in Saturday's clash with Edmonton, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.

Gauthier was absent from Friday's practice session, though coach Mike Babcock didn't seem to think it would affect the center's availability versus the Oilers. In the event the Quebec native is unable to suit up, Tyler Ennis figures to slot into the lineup.

Maple Leafs' Frederik Gauthier: Suddenly a part-timer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gauthier has been thrust into part-time duty with the arrival of Nicolas Petan.

Coach Mike Babcock seems to be alternating the 6-foot-5 Gauthier with the 5-foot-9 Petan to give the fourth line a dramatically different look based on matchup. Gauthier doesn't bring much offense to his role, so this shift to part-time work won't impact fantasy lineups.

Maple Leafs' Frederik Gauthier: Gets first multipoint game in NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gauthier scored a goal and added an assist in Monday's 5-3 win over Buffalo.

It was the his first multi-point game in the NHL. Nice night for Gauthier, but it doesn't make him relevant in fantasy. It was his first goal in 24 games and just his 12th point in 53 games this season.

Maple Leafs' Frederik Gauthier: Role player on ice not in fantasy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gauthier has three assists in his last 10 games, including two in his last five.

The Goat is a cheap, fourth-line pivot who happily plays under 10 minutes a game in a clearly defined role. There's huge value to have a guy like him on your team, especially in the cap era. But Gauthier will never have fantasy value.

Maple Leafs' Frederik Gauthier: Trench digger gets rare point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gauthier's assist Sunday in a 4-2 loss to Arizona was his first point in 10 games.

Gauthier is a trench digger -- he slugs it out game in and game out, and rarely picks up points. But Sunday, Goat skated with the talented William Nylander on his wing and that probably helped him deliver that point. He won't have Nylander as his wing man for long, so don't expect him to become a fantasy factor. Gauthier has just two goals and six assists in 39 games.

Maple Leafs' Frederik Gauthier: Gets on board in OT win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gauthier registered his first goal of the season Sunday, helping his club to a 5-4 overtime home win over the Red Wings.

Gauthier is a fourth-line center who frequently watches from the press box, so we wouldn't get too excited about his goal against the Wings.

Maple Leafs' Frederik Gauthier: Coach likes his game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gauthier isn't getting a lot of ice time, but coach Mike Babcock still likes what he sees from the Leafs' fourth-line center, reports Lance Hornsby of the Sun Media Group.

"In our situation, we have three centers who want a lot of ice," said Babcock. "We just want [Gauthier] to do what he's doing. He's big, he's on the defensive side of the puck." Gauthier is behind Auston Matthews, John Tavares and Nazem Kadri. He won't produce offense, but he will provide defensive support on a deep squad.

Maple Leafs' Frederik Gauthier: Still with Leafs for now
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gauthier remains with the Leafs after roster cuts, but there is no guarantee he will stay with the team after the start of the season, reports the Toronto Sun.

Gauthier will continue to practice with the team, but William Nylander's ultimate signing will likely send Goat packing.

Maple Leafs' Frederik Gauthier: Cleared to play, won't Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gauthier (shoulder) has been cleared to play ahead of Wednesday's contest against the Canadiens, but he will still sit that one out, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.

Gauthier injured his shoulder last Wednesday and it forced him to miss Friday's matchup with Buffalo, but the blueliner appears to be in good shape at this point. Still, the team will hold him out versus the Canadiens on Wednesday, suggesting he will rejoin the lineup when the team returns home to face the Red Wings on Friday.

Maple Leafs' Frederik Gauthier: Sustains shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gauthier is dealing with a shoulder issue that occured in Wednesday's clash with Ottawa, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.

While coach Mike Babcock indicated the injury is not expected to be serious, Gauthier won't be in the lineup against Buffalo on Friday -- although he could still suit up for Saturday's tilt with the Sabres. The 2013 first-round pick appears to have the inside track for the fourth-line center job, but will have to stave off Adam Cracknell and Cody Bass.
