Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: One of each in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev scored a goal on three shots and added an assist in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Jets.

Mikheyev set up Pierre Engvall's opening tally in the first period, then scored one of his own in the second. The 26-year-old Mikheyev finished 2020-21 with seven goals and 18 points in 54 contests, a slight disappointment after he racked up 23 points in only 39 outings last year. The Russian winger will likely continue to see middle-six minutes in the postseason.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Production suppressed down lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev has a single assist in his last nine games and no goals in 10.

Mikheyev still plays an important bottom-six role for the Leafs, but his fantasy value is nil right now. He has real talent, but it's suppressed when he plays down the lineup. Mikheyev's fantasy worth would rise if he could skate on the second line, but the team's depth prevents that.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Gets assist in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev (undisclosed) picked up an assist Saturday in a 4-1 win over the Jets.

Mikheyev had sat out two games and while the helper came on an empty-net goal, it still counts the same. He's best-served in fantasy if he gets time on a scoring line, but the Buds are too deep to guarantee Mikheyev that kind of playing time. Glad to see him get the helper, though.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev (undisclosed) will play in Saturday's game against the Jets.

Mikheyev will return after two games in the press box. He's set to skate on the third line with Alex Kerfoot and Wayne Simmonds as he aims to build on the 15 points he accrued through the first 45 games.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Unavailable against Winnipeg
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev (undisclosed) isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Jets, per the NHL's official media site.

Mikheyev came into the game deemed a game-time decision for the clash, but the undisclosed issue will hold him out of his second straight game. With the 26-year-old sidelined, look for Pierre Engvall to enter the lineup in his absence.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's matchup with the Jets, David Alter of The Hockey News reports.

Mikheyev skated on Toronto's third line during Thursday's morning session, but the 26-year-old winger's status against Winnipeg nonetheless won't be confirmed until pregame warmups. He's notched 15 points through 45 contests this season.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: No-go versus Vancouver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev (undisclosed) is considered day-to-day ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Canucks, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.

Mikheyev will miss at least one contest with his undisclosed issue. The 26-year-old winger will be reevaluated ahead of Thursday's game against the Jets.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Questionable for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev (undisclosed) will be questionable for Tuesday's tilt with the Canucks, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.

Mikheyev has appeared in all 45 games so far this season, scoring six goals and 15 points with a plus-2 rating. It appears that he'll be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Moves up lineup and produces
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev scored a goal and added an assist Saturday in a 6-5 win over the Senators.

Mikheyev stepped onto the second line with John Tavares and Zach Hyman because lines were shuffled to address the absence of William Nylander (COVID-19 protocols). He showed off the skills he flashed last season and is clearly a solid fantasy play while Nylander is out.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Offensive step backwards this year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev has just two points -- both goals -- in his last nine games.

Mikheyev has taken a significant step backwards, at least in terms of his production. His 10 points (five goals, five assists) in 34 games pales to his rookie work of 23 points in 39 games. Mikheyev has performed well in a defensive role and has been a versatile presence in the lineup, but he doesn't move the fantasy needle much.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: On modest three-game point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev collected an assist, three shots on goal and three hits in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Canucks.

Mikheyev has gotten on the scoresheet in each of the last three contests. The 26-year-old winger is up to eight points, 48 shots on net and 23 hits through 25 contests. He's worth a look for DFS while he's hot, but season-long fantasy managers can likely pass him by for now.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Collects third goal of year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev notched a goal on two shots and had a pair of hits in Wednesday's 6-1 win over Edmonton.

The 26-year-old sophomore found a rebound in front and swept a backhander past Edmonton goalie Mike Smith to extend Toronto's second-period advantage to 4-0. It was the third goal of the season for Mikheyev, who skated on Toronto's third line with Zach Hyman and Pierre Engvall.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Manages helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mihkeyev produced an assist and four shots on goal in Monday's 3-0 win over the Oilers.

Mikheyev had the secondary assist on the opening tally by Zach Hyman. The 26-year-old Mikheyev snapped a four-game point drought with the helper. The Russian winger hasn't found much scoring consistency in his third-line role -- he has six points and 43 shots on net in 23 appearances.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Nets game-winner Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev scored a goal on three shots and added two hits in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Canadiens.

Mikheyev was one of three Maple Leafs skaters to get their first goal of the year -- Travis Dermott and Justin Holl scored prior to Mikheyev's game-winner in the third period. The 26-year-old Mihkeyev now has four points, 23 shots on net and a 11 hits through 14 appearances. The tally was the Russian's first since Dec. 27, 2019 -- he missed a large chunk of last season due to a severe wrist injury.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Provides helper Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev notched an assist and two shots on goal in Monday's 3-1 win over the Canucks.

Mikheyev set up Alex Kerfoot at 9:33 of the third period, just 11 seconds after Auston Matthews' go-ahead goal. It's been a slow start to the year for Mikheyev, who has only three assists to go with 20 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating in 13 appearances.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: No goals in first 10 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev has two assists and 16 shots, but no goals, in the first 10 games of the season.

He is the only Leafs forward that has played in every game that is without a goal so far. Mikheyev is big and fast, so he can use those tools to draw penalties and force the play. The goals should come -- he had eight in 39 games last year before suffering a wrist injury.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Headed toward third-line role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev is skating on the third line in training camp, reports The Athletic.

This assignment, alongside Alex Kerfoot and Zach Hyman, would be a powerful checking trio, but not exactly a scoring machine. Mikheyev will likely see time on the second line at times this year, too, so stash him at draft on that hunch.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Inks extension Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev signed a two-year, $3.29 million contract extension with the Maple Leafs on Tuesday.

Mikheyev acquitted himself well as a rookie in 2019-20, recording 23 points in 39 games. The 26-year-old has spent the bulk of his professional career in the KHL in his native Russia, where he racked up 122 points in 224 games over four seasons prior to making the jump to the NHL. Mikheyev should reprise his role in Toronto's middle six once the puck drops next season.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Ready for postseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev (wrist) was skating on the second line with John Tavares at Monday's camp session, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.

Prior to getting hurt, Mikheyev racked up eight goals, 15 helpers and 98 shots in 39 appearances this year. Despite being a rookie, the Russian winger seems to have quickly meshed with Tavares, which would make him a top-end fantasy option in both postseason pools and DFS contests during the playoffs.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev (wrist) returned to practice Monday, Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun reports.

Mikheyev's return still shouldn't be viewed as imminent, but he's clearly making progress in his recovery and could be ready to rejoin the lineup before postseason play gets underway. The 25-year-old Russian notched 23 points in 39 games before undergoing wrist surgery in late December.
