Sharks' Alexander Barabanov: Packs bags for Bay Area
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sharks acquired Barabonov via trade from Toronto for Antti Suomela on Monday, Frank Seravalli of TSN.ca reports.

In his first NHL season, Barabonov posted just one point -- an assist -- and 11 shots on net across 13 games for the Maple Leafs. The 26-year-old has demonstrated his upside in the AHL this year, albeit in a small sample, putting up two goals and three assists across just two games. This change of scenery could allow Barabanov to take on a larger role with his new team.

Maple Leafs' Alexander Barabanov: Rejoins active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barabanov was promoted to the active roster ahead of Saturday's game versus the Senators.

Barabanov played in a bottom-six role in the 6-5 win over the Senators. The 26-year-old winger shouldn't be expected to see much more than that kind of usage this season.

Maple Leafs' Alexander Barabanov: Back to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barabanov was designated for the taxi squad Thursday, per CapFriendly.

Barabanov suited up in Wednesday's win over the Canadiens, marking his first appearance since March 1. The 26-year-old took advantage of the opportunity, notching his first career point -- an assist -- in the third period. If William Nylander stays in COVID-19 protocol, Barabanov figures to stay in the lineup in the short term.

Maple Leafs' Alexander Barabanov: Suiting up Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barabanov will be promoted to the active roster for Wednesday's game versus the Canadiens.

William Nylander is in COVID-19 protocol, opening a spot in the lineup for Barabanov to play his first NHL game since March 1. The 26-year-old Barabonov has yet to post a point through 11 games with the big club this season.

Maple Leafs' Alexander Barabanov: Rejoins taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barabanov was reassigned to Toronto's taxi squad Wednesday, CapFriendly reports.

Barabanov has been a healthy scratch for six straight games, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. He's gone scoreless through 11 contests this campaign.

Maple Leafs' Alexander Barabanov: Promoted from taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barabanov was added to the active roster Monday, according to CapFriendly.

Barabanov has been held without a point in 11 games this season. He hasn't been in the NHL lineup since the beginning of March and should continue watching games from the press box.

Maple Leafs' Alexander Barabanov: Promoted to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barabanov was added to Toronto's taxi squad Wednesday.

Barabanov has appeared in 11 games with the Maple Leafs this season, but he's gone scoreless over that span, so don't expect him to be a viable fantasy option in 2020-21.

Maple Leafs' Alexander Barabanov: Sent to minors Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barabanov was reassigned to AHL Toronto on Thursday, per CBS Sports.

Barabanov has fallen out of favor among the bottom-six forwards with the Maple Leafs. If this isn't just a paper move, he'll have a chance to get into some games in an advanced role with the Marlies.

Maple Leafs' Alexander Barabanov: Shuffles to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barabanov was demoted to the taxi squad Thursday, per CapFriendly.

Maple Leafs' Alexander Barabanov: Back from COVID-19 protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barabanov (COVID-19 protocols) had four shots on goal in Wednesday's 2-1 overtime win against Calgary.

The 23-year-old was placed in the league's COVID-19 protocol Tuesday but tested negative twice to gain clearance to return. On the positive side, Barabanov managed to register four shots despite receiving less than nine minutes of playing time. On the negative side, Barabanov has now gone nine games this season without a point.

Maple Leafs' Alexander Barabanov: Expected to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barabanov has been removed from COVID-19 protocols and is expected to play Wednesday against visiting Calgary, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

Barabanov tested negative twice after an initial inconclusive test, so he's good to go against the Flames. He's still looking for his first point of the year, however, having gone scoreless in his first eight contests while averaging a minuscule 6:57 of ice time.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barabanov was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Tuesday, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports.

Barabanov logged 11:13 of ice time in Monday's loss to the Flames. It's uncertain whether he tested positive for the virus, or if he simply came into close contact with an infected person. The 26-year-old will need to clear the league's protocol before re-entering the lineup.

Maple Leafs' Alexander Barabanov: Added to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barabanov will be promoted to the active roster and play in Monday's clash with Calgary, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.

Barabanov will get back in the lineup for the first time since Feb. 8 versus Vancouver, logging just 8:08 of ice time. With Joe Thornton (undisclosed) and Zach Hyman (undisclosed) both out of action, the 26-year-old Barabanov figures to slot into a bottom-six role.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maple Leafs' Alexander Barabanov: Rises to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barabanov was promoted to the active roster Sunday, per CBS Sports.

Barabanov continues to bounce between the active roster and the taxi squad, but playing time has been hard to find lately. The Russian winger has appeared in just three of the Maple Leafs' last eight games. He's still looking for his first NHL point.

Maple Leafs' Alexander Barabanov: Shifts to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Maple Leafs demoted Barabanov to the taxi squad ahead of Wednesday's game against Montreal, per CBS Sports.

The Russian saw eight minutes of ice time in Monday's game against Vancouver, but he won't take the ice Wednesday. In seven games this season, the 26-year-old has gone pointless while averaging just 6:20 of ice time over that span. Barabanov was replaced by Nicolas Petan on the active roster and in the lineup.

Maple Leafs' Alexander Barabanov: Set to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barabanov is slated to play in Monday's matchup with Vancouver, Jonas Siegel of The Athletic reports, which means he will be elevated to the active roster prior to puck drop.

Barabanov was a healthy scratch for the team's last two contests while sitting on the taxi squad. In his six contests, the 26-year-old winger has garnered four blocks, three hits and two shots while averaging a mere 6:03 of ice time. With Barabanov back in the lineup, Nicolas Petan will be scratched.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barabanov was assigned to the taxi squad Saturday, per CBS Sports.

Barabanov continues to shuffle between levels as the Maple Leafs manage their salary cap. When he plays, the Russian forward is little more than a bottom-six option.

Maple Leafs' Alexander Barabanov: Back with taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Maple Leafs reassigned Barabanov to their taxi squad Tuesday, per TSN.

Barabanov has drawn into four games with the big club this season, going scoreless while averaging just 5:52 of ice time per contest. The 26-year-old winger will likely continue to shuffle between the active roster and the taxi squad throughout the campaign.

Maple Leafs' Alexander Barabanov: Promoted from taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barabanov was recalled from the taxi squad Friday, TSN reports.

Barabanov suited up in Friday's 4-2 win over the Oilers and logged 7:56 of ice time and two blocked shots. Injuries have piled up for the Maple Leafs, so Barabonov could be a placeholder until they're healthy again.
