Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Inks three-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kapanen agreed to terms on a three-year, $9.6 million contract extension with Toronto on Friday.

It's a solid bridge deal for Kapanen, who is just coming off the entry-level deal he signed with the Penguins in 2014. The 22-year-old set career highs across the board this season, including goals (20), assists (24) and shots (174). The winger figures to slot into a top-six role heading into the 2019-20 campaign and could push for the 50-point mark this year, especially if he can expand his role on the power play.

Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Set with QO
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Leafs extended a qualifying offer to Kapanen on Tuesday.

Even though Kapanen was issued the qualifying offer, reports earlier suggested that him and the team had agreed in principle on a contract extension. The Finnish-born player was due for a raise, considering he produced a 20-goal, 44-point season in 2018-19. Kapanen should be expected to produce at an even higher level next campaign.

Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Agreement in principle for new deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kapanen and the Leafs have agreed in principle to a contract extension, reports Bob McKenzie of TSN.

It won't be finalized until Mitch Marner's deal is done, but it looks like a three-year deal with an AAV in the $3.2M to $3.4M range. Kapanen was due a raise after a 20-goal, 44-point season last year. It looks like good value for the speedster, at least on the surface.

Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Late flurry tips scales in Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kapanen scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 2-1 win over the Bruins in Game 5 of their first-round series.

The two teams fired blanks for two periods, but Kapanen helped Auston Matthews open the scoring midway through the third before popping what proved to be the game-winner a little over two minutes later. The points were Kapanen's first of the postseason, but he'll look to carry that momentum forward into what could prove to be a deciding Game 6 back in Toronto on Sunday.

Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Gets big monkey off back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kapanen scored a goal in Saturday's 6-5 shootout loss to Montreal.

The goal snapped a 15-game drought. Kapanen finished his first full NHL season with 20 goals and 44 points in 78 games. He'll get a chance to build on his playoff resume in what he and the Leafs hope is a much longer run this year.

Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Returning Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kapanen (concussion) will be in Tuesday's lineup against the Predators.

As expected, the 22-year-old will return from a four-game absence in Nashville. Kapanen will be looking for his 20th goal in his first full-time NHL season.

Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Targeting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kapanen (concussion) is expected to play Tuesday in Nashville, Dave McCarthy of NHL.com reports.

Kapanen has missed the last four games with a concussion, but on Monday, head coach Mike Babcock went on record as saying the 22-year-old could've returned sooner, but the team elected to hold Kapanen out longer for precautionary reasons. As of now, it appears he'll return Tuesday, but expect the team to confirm Kapanen's playing status well before warmups.

Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Resumes skating
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kapanen (concussion) skated on his own prior to Friday's practice, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports.

Kapanen will need to be cleared to practice with his teammates before returning to game action, so although he's clearly trending in the right direction, it's safe to assume he won't be available for Friday's matchup with Philadelphia or Saturday's game against the Senators. Another update on the 22-year-old winger's status should surface once he's ready to start taking contact.

Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Out with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kapanen is dealing with a concussion and will not play Wednesday against the Blackhawks.

Kapanen has broken out in his age-22 season, posting 42 points -- 19 goals and 23 assists -- over 68 games with a plus-13 rating. While part of his success can be attributed to the talent around him, Kapanen's proven he's no slouch as a goal-scorer. Look for Kapanen's clearance for contact to signify him nearing a return to action.

Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Late scratch Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kapanen (illness) will not suit up in Monday's home tilt against Tampa Bay.

It seems that the illness hampering Kapanen came unexpectedly, and the team will hold him out as a precaution. Toronto will certainly miss his 42 points in 68 games this campaign, and Trevor Moore will draw into the lineup in his stead. Kapanen's next chance to suit up is Wednesday against the Blackhawks.

Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Earns power-play assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kapanen had an assist on the man advantage and four shots in Monday's 6-2 win over the Flames.

Kapanen has been a strong supplementary scored for the Leafs this year, with 42 points and 144 shots in 66 games. The Finnish winger was drafted in the first round in 2014 and is beginning to show promise in his breakout year. He's done most of his work on the second line.

Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Has nine points in last eight games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kapanen scored a goal and added an assist in Monday's 5-3 victory over the Sabres.

Kapanen has nine points (four goals, five assists) in his last eight games. The speedster now has 40 points in 62 games and could hit the 50-point plateau this season. Kapanen is due for a big raise in free agency, but it remains to be seen if that will come in Toronto or somewhere else.

Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Sees ice time jump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kapanen delivered two assists in 20:25 of ice time during Thursday's 6-3 win over the Golden Knights.

Kapanen also tallied three hits and three shots on goal. The spike in ice time can likely be attributed to forward Andreas Johnsson leaving in the second period with a leg injury. Kapanen is a worthy replacement in Toronto's star-studded top six, with 36 points in 57 games this season.

Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Scores twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kapanen netted a pair of goals in a 5-2 win over Colorado on Tuesday.

The Finnish winger opened the scoring and later added a power-play marker, giving him 18 goals for the season. A first-round pick in 2014, Kapanen has loads of talent and will be a reliable point producer if he continues in a top-six role.

Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Finds goal column in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kapanen scored Toronto's lone goal Sunday in a 4-1 loss to the Rangers.

The goal, Kapanen's first since Jan. 24, was just his second point in the last eight games and gives the Maple Leafs forward 16 goals and 32 points in 55 games this season. Kapanen also dished out a team-high three hits in the loss.

Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Ends pointless streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kapanen brought his five-game pointless streak to a close with his assist against Ottawa on Wednesday.

While Kapanen is back on the scoresheet, he remains bogged down in an eight-game goal drought. Despite the winger's slump, coach Mike Babcock continues to deploy him on Auston Matthews' line, but may have to consider other options if Kapanen can't start finding the back of the net soon.

Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Breakout season continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kapanen scored a goal in Monday's 6-3 loss to Colorado.

Kapanen snapped a seven-game goal drought with the snipe. After a quiet period, he has three points in his last two games. Kapanen's breakout this season (28 points in 45 games) makes him a prime trade chip for the Leafs as the deadline nears. Don't be surprised if he is wearing a new uniform later this season.

Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Stuns visitors with two goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kapanen opened the scoring for the Leafs and also uncorked the game-winner in overtime Sunday, prevailing over the Red Wings, 5-4.

Kapanen lit the lamp 27 seconds into the game and also sealed the win with a slick backhand as he was falling to the ice in the act of shooting. Lauded for his skating skills, the Finn is on pace for 31 goals and 24 assists in his first full season featured on hockey's biggest stage.

Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Not injured in vehicle collission
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kapanen avoided an injury after being involved in a car accident with Maple Leafs teammate William Nylander on Friday, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.

Kapanen reportedly was in the passenger seat when the collision took place outside of the team's practice facility. Fortunately, both players came out of the vehicle unscathed. The Maple Leafs are now in Boston preparing for an important divisional clash with the Bruins.

Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Confidence continues to soar
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kapanen scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Red Wings.

His confidence is soaring. Kapanen has shown he can be a capable offensive player during William Nylander's holdout. Now that Willie is back, Kapanen may end up shuffled out of the top six to a line with Nazem Kadri. His skill and speed should help light a fire for Nazzy and keep him relevant for fantasy purposes.
