Igor Ozhiganov: Secures two-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozhiganov, as expected, signed a two-year contract with AK Bars Kazan (KHL) on Friday, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.

Ozhiganov's return to Russia was already in the works, though where the blueliner was going to play was still up in the air. Set to be a restricted free agent this summer, the Maple Leafs will almost certainly extend him a qualifying offer in order to retain his NHL rights. At just 26 years of age, it's certainly not out of the question for Ozhiganov to make his way back to the NHL at some point down the road.

Igor Ozhiganov: Expected to return to native Russia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozhiganov is expected to return to the KHL for the 2019-20 season, Scott Wheeler of The Athletic reports.

Ozhiganov was a regular in the Maple Leafs lineup for most of the 2018-19 campaign, notching seven points in 53 appearances, but he clearly fell out of favor with coach Mike Babcock towards the end of the season -- sitting as a healthy scratch for 12 of the final 19 contests, including all seven playoff games against the Bruins. The 26-year-old blueliner only signed a one-year deal with the Leafs, so he'll be free to return to Russia as soon as he becomes an unrestricted free agent July 1.

Maple Leafs' Igor Ozhiganov: Playing time may increase a lot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozhiganov is expected to draw into the Leafs' lineup Wednesday against the Oilers.

It will be his first game since Jan. 23, but it might not be an isolated start. Jake Gardiner is hurting and an announcement about his status is coming later Wednesday. Ozhiganov is the team's seventh defender, and while his fantasy value is limited, he could prove himself over the next while and secure a spot for 2019-2020.

Maple Leafs' Igor Ozhiganov: Heading to media box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozhiganov will likely be relegated to the media box with the arrival of Jake Muzzin in Toronto.

Muzzin immediately slots onto the Leafs' top pairing, pushing Ron Hainsey down to the third pairing, where he can mentor Travis Dermott. That leaves Ozhiganov on the outside looking in, barring injury.

Maple Leafs' Igor Ozhiganov: Scores rare goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozhiganov scored his third goal of the season Monday in a 6-3 loss to Colorado.

Ozhiganov isn't a scorer, as he has just seven points (three goals, four assists) in 38 games. But he's had a strong nine days -- Ozhiganov has three points in his last five outings.

Maple Leafs' Igor Ozhiganov: Rare scoring outburst in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozhiganov scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 5-0 win over the Canucks.

It's the 26-year-old rookie's first multi-point game of the season. Ozhiganov has only two goals and six points through 34 games, and while he's giving the Leafs solid shifts on their third defensive pairing, he isn't likely to suddenly emerge as a fantasy asset.

Maple Leafs' Igor Ozhiganov: More ice time than usual in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozhiganov (illness) returned to action Friday, recording a single blocked shot in a 4-2 road win over the Blue Jackets.

Oz picked up 16:47 of ice time, which is a typical amount for a third-pairing defenseman, albeit more than two minutes more than his season average. The rookie has collected a goal and three helpers over 31 games this season, but he's primarily a shutdown type.

Maple Leafs' Igor Ozhiganov: Returning to action Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozhiganov (illness) will return to the lineup Friday against the Blue Jackets, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.

Ozhiganov missed the previous three contests due to illness, but his return to practice Thursday signaled that he would be ready to rejoin the action for Friday's match. That indeed is the case, and he's expected to slot in alongside Travis Dermott as part of the Leafs' third defensive pairing.

Maple Leafs' Igor Ozhiganov: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozhiganov (illness) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Wings, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.

The rookie blueliner has just one goal and four assists in 30 games this season. Ozhiganov will miss his third straight game with his ailment, but he'll have a lot of time to heal up before the team's next game on Friday in Columbus.

Maple Leafs' Igor Ozhiganov: Implied scratch Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozhiganov (illness) won't play Saturday against the Rangers, according to Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun.

Koshan didn't explicitly confirm that Ozhiganov would sit out for a second straight game, but it's a foregone conclusion with the Toronto-based reporter revealing that the Maple Leafs did not make any changes from the last game at morning skate, and Martin Marincin was still working with Travis Dermott to comprise the third defensive pair.

Maple Leafs' Igor Ozhiganov: Last-second scratch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozhiganov won't play Thursday against the Panthers due to an illness.

With Ozhiganov unavailable, Martin Marincin will draw into the lineup against Florida. The 26-year-old blueliner will hope to overcome his illness ahead of Saturday's matchup with the Rangers.

Maple Leafs' Igor Ozhiganov: Getting ice time but no points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozhiganov hasn't put up any points this season. He has played seven games.

Ozhiganov and Travis Dermott are paired on the third unit. The Russian doesn't speak any English, but he and Dermott have developed a way to communicate that helps deliver decent results. But on Saturday, Ozhiganov struggled a bit, finishing with a minus-2 rating as his ice time dropped to 14:00. It remains to be seen if coach Mike Babcock will give him a game or two from the press box, just to see the game from a different level. Stating the obvious, his fantasy value is limited if he doesn't deliver points.

Maple Leafs' Igor Ozhiganov: Out of lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozhiganov will be a healthy scratch for Sunday's game in Chicago, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.

Playing in his first NHL season, the KHL product suited up for Toronto's first two regular season games but has been pretty invisible with just one shot on goal while averaging 12:50 of ice time. He was replaced by Martin Marincin for Sunday's game as head coach Mike Babcock continues looking for ways to solidify the team's bottom defensive pairing.

Maple Leafs' Igor Ozhiganov: Seems to have earned regular role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozhiganov appears to have earned the sixth spot on the Leafs' blue line, reports the Toronto Sun.

Ozhiganov has been paired with Travis Dermott and has played well enough to beat out Connor Carrick, Martin Marincin and Justin Holl. Those three are still with the Leafs for now, but he has earned his role. Ozhiganov is a big, right-shooting crease clearer who is a defense-first guy. And that makes him the perfect ballast for a an offensive-minded guy lie Dermott. There's little fantasy value here, but his goalies will love him.
