Capitals' Brendan Leipsic: Headed to Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leipsic signed a one-year deal with the Capitals on Monday, Mike Vogel of the Capitals' official site reports.

Leipsic posted seven goals and 23 points in 62 games between the Canucks and Golden Knights during the 2018-19 season. The former CHL standout is expected to settle into a fourth-line role with the Capitals but may struggle to get consistent ice time in a crowded bottom six which could significantly limit his fantasy appeal.

Kings' Brendan Leipsic: Kings pass on QO
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leipsic (lower body) was not extended a qualifying offer ahead of Tuesday's deadline and will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.

Splitting time between Vancouver and Los Angeles, Leipsic collected a total of 23 points over 62 games in 2018-19. Just 25 years of age, the winger's youth should be enough to earn him a contract somewhere, but it'll likely only be a one-year deal.

Kings' Brendan Leipsic: Doubtful to play again this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leipsic (lower body) isn't expected to play again this season, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Assuming that holds true, Leipsic will finish the 2018-19 season with 23 points over 62 games between the Canucks and Kings, both career-high totals. The 24-year-old winger may never be a fantasy juggernaut, but he may possess some utility in deep leagues next season.

Kings' Brendan Leipsic: Not in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leipsic (lower body) will not play in Monday's tilt against Calgary.

Leipsic will miss his sixth consecutive game with the lower-body issue. He has 18 points in 45 points with the Kings this season, the most he's produced with any of the three franchises he's played for over the last two seasons.

Kings' Brendan Leipsic: Still out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leipsic (lower body) remains scratched Saturday against the Blackhawks, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

Leipsic has now been out over a week, last suiting up March 21. His next chance to return will come Monday against the Flames. That's the first of four April games on the Kings' schedule before the end of their season.

Kings' Brendan Leipsic: Remains unavailable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leipsic (lower body) isn't in the projected lineup for Thursday's game against Vancouver,'s Kevin Woodley reports.

Leipsic will miss a fourth consecutive game Thursday, and he remains without a clear-cut timetable for his return to action. The Kings aren't in contention for a spot in the playoffs, so there's no incentive for them to rush the 24-year-old winger back before he's fully recovered.

Kings' Brendan Leipsic: Not in Tuesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leipsic (lower body) remains out of the lineup Tuesday in Edmonton, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

The Kings went back to a traditional 12-forward, six-defenseman lineup for this one, but Leipsic's not part of that equation. He'll hope to get back in there when Los Angeles wraps up its Western Canada trip Thursday in Vancouver.

Kings' Brendan Leipsic: Won't return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leipsic (lower body) will not be available in Calgary on Monday.

Leipsic has now missed the last two contests after notching five points in his previous nine games. Though he doesn't have an official timetable to return, the 5-foot-10 winger will likely miss Tuesday's game in Edmonton as well.

Kings' Brendan Leipsic: Unavailable Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leipsic (lower body) won't be in the lineup against Anaheim on Saturday, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Leipsic could also miss out on the club's upcoming back-to-back Monday and Tuesday versus Calgary and Edmonton, respectively, considering coach Willie Desjardins was less than specific on the winger's recovery timeline. In the meantime, Jonny Brodzinski figures to slot back into the lineup in Leipsic's stead.

Kings' Brendan Leipsic: Suffers lower-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leipsic (lower body) won't return to Thursday's game against San Jose.

The severity of Leipsic's injury has yet to be determined, but he should probably be considered questionable at best for Saturday's game against Anaheim at this point. If Leipsic is unable to go, Jonny Brodzinski or Ilya Kovalchuk will draw into the lineup against the Ducks.

Kings' Brendan Leipsic: Healthy scratch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leipsic was a healthy scratch for Sunday's win over the Ducks, Curtis Zupke of The Los Angeles Times reports.

Kings coach Willie Desjardins cited Leipsic's play in the defensive zone as a reason for the benching, as he instead went with 11 forwards and seven defensemen for this game. Leipsic has 16 points in 41 games with the Kings since getting claimed off waivers from the Canucks earlier in the season.

Kings' Brendan Leipsic: Tallies with man advantage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leipsic scored a power-play goal in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Stars.

The tally was his fifth of the season. Leipsic has 19 points this year, split between the Kings and Canucks. He's accumulated modest totals of 82 shots, 24 blocked shots and 44 hits in 54 contests, which combines with the Kings' 30th ranked offense (2.34 goals per game) to hinder his fantasy value.

Kings' Brendan Leipsic: Second two-point outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leipsic scored a goal and added a helper in Monday's win over the Blues.

Leipsic picked up a turnover late in the first period and set up Tyler Toffoli to cut the Blues' lead to one. He later assisted Paul LaDue's game-winning goal. Leipsic was pointless in three straight entering this contest, but he broke out of the rut with his second two-point game of the season.

Kings' Brendan Leipsic: Scores goal in upset win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leipsic notched a goal in Saturday's win over the Penguins.

Since joining the Kings off waivers, Leipsic has tallied two goals, four assists and 29 shots in 19 appearances. With his new club, the winger is averaging 14:13 of ice time -- compared to 12:50 when he was with the Canucks -- and should see more opportunities to write his name on the scoresheet.

Kings' Brendan Leipsic: Claimed by Kings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leipsic was snagged off waivers by the Kings on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Leipsic will join a Los Angeles team that sits tied for last in the NHL with 21 points. The 24-year-old managed just two goals and five points 17 games with Vancouver before falling victim to the numbers game. He'll benefit from a fresh start with the rebuilding Kings.

Canucks' Brendan Leipsic: Hits waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Canucks waived Leipsic on Sunday, Satiar Shah of Sportsnet 650 reports.

Leipsic has worked in the bottom six with power-play responsibilities, and he had five points and a minus-10 rating in 17 games with the big club. Jay Beagle is closing in on a return, so Leipsic's spot in the lineup was expendable. If he clears waivers, Leipsic will head to AHL Utica.

Canucks' Brendan Leipsic: Posts pair of points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leipsic picked up a goal and assist in Tuesday's loss to the Islanders.

This is Leipsic's first multi-point game since last March, oddly enough in a game also against the Islanders. He was moved up to Bo Horvat's line and could see an uptick in production as a result. However, he had just three points on the year prior to Tuesday, so his offensive abilities are limited.

Canucks' Brendan Leipsic: Picks up assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leipsic notched an assist in Thursday's showdown in Boston.

It was only Leipsic's third point on the year, and his first in three weeks. The gritty scoring winger hasn't been a regular in the lineup though, playing in just eight of Vancouver's 17 games. He's shown flashes of skill in those games, but hasn't quite put all the pieces together. Until that happens, he can't be trusted as a reliable producer.

Canucks' Brendan Leipsic: Scores game-winning goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leipsic scored what turned out to be the game-winning goal in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Flames.

Leipsic tallied Vancouver's third goal of the game, putting it up 3-0 with the snipe. The Flames would only manage two goals, giving Leipsic GWG honors as a result. The 24-year-old figures to get a fair shot to earn ice time in Vancouver, considering the team is in the midst of a rebuild.

Canucks' Brendan Leipsic: Scoreless in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leipsic threw two shots on goal and failed to register a point in Tuesday's loss to Vegas.

Tuesday marked the first time Leipsic played in five contests as he dealt with an upper-body injury. Leipsic actually began 2017-18 with the Golden Knights, making a limited impact over 44 games when he scored just twice and had 11 assists. Since joining the Canucks, though, Leipsic's shown improvement as he's been given an enhanced role, putting up seven points in 12 tilts.
