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.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Return to practice impending
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev (wrist) is expected to return to practice at some point during the Maple Leafs' upcoming three-game road trip, Mark Masters of reports.

Mikheyev has been sidelined for two months since he suffered the severe laceration that damaged tendons in his wrist. This is just the first step in a long recovery for the Russian winger -- he's questionable at best to make a return to game action during the regular season.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Surgery successful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev (wrist) will "miss more than three months" after undergoing successful surgery to repair an artery and tendons in his wrist.

The 25-year-old rookie suffered a severe laceration from a skate in Friday's game against the Devils. Mikheyev's agent released the information Saturday morning and indicated a "more accurate timeline for his return will be provided in 90 days." Tendons take time to heal and then strength needs to be rebuilt, so count Mikheyev out for the season. Poor kid -- he was skating with the big guns on a scoring line and looking like a perfect fit. But thankfully, he is expected to make a full recovery. This could have been career altering. He'll head to IR for the time being.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Suffers hand injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev was cut on his wrist in Friday's game against the Devils, Kristen Shilton of reports.

Mikheyev suffered the scary injury when Jesper Bratt's skate blade caught him in the third period. It's unclear how severe Mikheyev's injury is. The Maple Leafs play again Saturday against the Rangers, but given the nature of the injury -- which was described as a significant laceration per the Maple Leafs -- the 25-year-old Russian is likely questionable at best to participate in that contest.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Three-game goal streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev scored a goal and added an assist Friday in a 6-3 win over the Rangers.

He's now on a three-game goal streak (four points) after going pointless in his previous six. Mikheyev remains on pace to flirt with the 50-point mark this season, and that's impressive for a lower-profile rookie. Keep trotting him out there. Mikheyev can help.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Two helpers in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev picked up two assists in Wednesday's 6-0 win over the Red Wings.

The 25-year-old NHL rookie helped set up the Leafs' first and third goals of the evening. It's Mikheyev's second two-assist night in the last three games under new coach Sheldon Keefe, as his elevation to the second line alongside John Tavares has paid immediate dividends. On the year, Mikheyev has four goals and 16 points in 26 games.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Pair of helpers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev posted two assists, four shots on goal and led all Maple Leafs forwards with 18:32 of ice time in a 3-1 win over the Coyotes on Thursday.

Mikheyev was strong in this contest, setting up Tyson Barrie in the first period and Auston Matthews in the third. The Russian has three assists in his last two games, perhaps heating up after a seven-game point drought through much of November. For the year, the 25-year-old has 14 points and 58 shots in 24 outings.

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

Mihkeyev posted an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

Mikheyev had the lone helper on Jason Spezza's goal in the third period. The assist snapped a seven-game point drought for Mikheyev, who has just two helpers in nine November games. In 2019-20, the Russian winger has 12 points and 21 hits in 23 contests overall.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Two-point night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev scored an empty-net goal on three shots and added an assist in Friday's 4-1 win over San Jose. He also led all players with a plus-4 rating.

The 25-year-old Russian has been a revelation for the Leafs, providing four goals and five assists with a plus-9 rating through the first 12 games of his NHL career. He's getting the opportunity to play in a top-six role on a talented team and he's taking advantage so far. Ride him while he's hot.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Sparking offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev scored his third goal of the season in a 4-3 loss to the Capitals, while also finishing with a team-high five shots.

Coming over from the KHL, it was anybody's guess how Mikheyev's game would translate to the NHL style of play. Well, the winger has been highly effective to start the year, with seven points in eight games, and the Maple Leafs gamble on Mikheyev appears to be paying off in the early stages of the 2019-20 season. He's effectively replaced Kasperi Kapanen on Toronto's second line, so you'd be wise to add Mikheyev to your lineup, provided he's still available.

Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev: Continues to impress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikheyev scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 5-2 victory over the Red Wings.

Mikheyev has been a real pleasant surprise for the Leafs this season. He's smart and versatile, and he's always between the puck and net. Mikheyev has five points, including two goals, in six games this season while skating on the team's third line. Keep an eye on the Buds -- Mikheyev could go up the lines if Kasperi Kapanen can't get the job done with John Tavares and Mitch Marner. You'd be wise to stash him fast.
