Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: Begins AHL conditioning stint
Woll (ankle) was sent to AHL Toronto for a conditioning stint Wednesday.
Woll hasn't played since Dec. 7 because of his ankle injury. He has an 8-5-1 record, 2.80 GAA and .916 save percentage in 15 appearances this season. Heading to the minors to shake off the rust suggests that Woll's getting close to returning, and when the 25-year-old is ready to play for the Maple Leafs, he'll likely split the goaltending duties with Ilya Samsonov while Martin Jones might return to the AHL, provided he can clear waivers....

Maple Leafs' Morgan Rielly: Suspension upheld
Rielly's five-game suspension for cross-checking Ottawa's Ridly Greig on Feb. 10 was affirmed by NHL commissioner Gary Bettman on Tuesday.
As a result, Rielly will be eligible to return to the lineup Thursday against Vegas. He has racked up seven goals, 43 points, 132 shots on net and 95 blocked shots over 50 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Mitchell Marner: Three more assists versus Blues
Marner picked up three assists in Monday's 4-2 win over St. Louis.
Marner set up Matthew Knies' tally 22 seconds into the second period before adding two more assists in the third on an Auston Matthews power-play marker and Bobby McMann's empty-netter. Marner extended his point streak to seven games while racking up multiple assists in a fourth straight contest. The 26-year-old winger is up to 65 points (22 goals, 43 assists) through 53 games as he looks to surpass the 90-point threshold for a third straight year.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Ilya Samsonov: Seventh win in eight starts
Samsonov stopped 19 of 21 shots in Monday's 4-2 win over St. Louis.
It wasn't the busiest game for Samsonov, but the 26-year-old netminder was sharp when needed en route to his fourth straight win and seventh victory in his last eight outings. Samsonov improves to 12-4-6 despite a still-subpar .882 save percentage and 3.19 GAA through 24 games. His save percentage is .921 during the aforementioned eight-game span. He should continue to see the lion's share of starts in Toronto until Joseph Woll (ankle) is able to return.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Poised to play
Tavares (undisclosed) is expected to play Monday against St. Louis, per David Alter of The Hockey News.
Tavares, who sat out Saturday's 9-2 win over Anaheim, is slated to play on the second line and top power-play unit in Monday's contest. He has generated 15 goals, 40 points and 188 shots on net through 51 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' William Lagesson: Not playing Monday
Lagesson (upper body) won't play Monday versus the Blues, Mark Masters of TSN reports.
Lagesson is considered day-to-day after being injured in Saturday's 9-2 win over Anaheim. He will be replaced in the lineup by Marshall Rifai, who will make his NHL debut. Lagesson's next chance to play is Wednesday versus the Coyotes.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Ilya Samsonov: In goal versus Blues
Samsonov will patrol the blue paint on the road against St. Louis on Monday, Matthew DeFranks of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Samsonov has been racking up wins of late, posting a 6-1-0 record in his last seven outings. Along the way, the 26-year-old netminder registered a 1.98 GAA, a .923 save percentage and one shutout. After a stint in the minors, Samsonov looks to have reclaimed the starting job in Toronto.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Game-time decision
Tavares (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision Monday against St. Louis, per Joshua Kloke of The Athletic.
Tavares participated fully in Sunday's practice after sitting out Saturday's 9-2 win over Anaheim. Barring any setbacks, he appears to be on track to return to the lineup Monday. Tavares has amassed 15 goals, 40 points and 188 shots on net through 51 outings this campaign.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Max Domi: Fiery effort in blowout win
Domi had two assists to work around 11 PIM in Saturday's 9-2 win over the Ducks.
Domi was a real menace to the Ducks, as he set up two goals and asserted himself physically based on the separate fighting, hooking and roughing penalties. Fantasy leagues generally don't reward for PIM to the high degree that they did in the previous decade, but Domi, despite averaging only 13 minutes of ice time, remains relevant in deep leagues based on five goals and 22 assists through 53 contests....

Maple Leafs' William Lagesson: Could play Monday
Lagesson (upper body) is "day-to-day" and has a chance to play Monday versus St. Louis, David Alter of The Hockey News reports.
It was initially reported that Lagesson would miss time after leaving Saturday's game against the Ducks, though it now appears the injury isn't as serious as originally feared. If Lagesson can suit up against the Blues, it would be a big boost to a Toronto defensive corps currently ravaged by injuries. The 27-year-old Lagesson has three assists while averaging 14:21 of ice time through 25 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Three more points Saturday
Nylander tallied a goal and two assists in Saturday's 9-2 win over Anaheim.
Two of Nylander's three points came on the power play, including a goal that extended Toronto's lead to 4-1 in the first period. The 27-year-old forward has been hot out of the All-Star break, recording five goals and 10 points in his last six contests. Overall, Nylander's up to 28 goals and 71 points through 53 games, as he's well on pace to top the 80-point threshold for a third straight season.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Jake McCabe: Goal, assist in win
McCabe tallied a goal and an assist in Saturday's 9-2 victory over the Ducks.
McCabe extended Toronto's lead to 3-0 in the opening period, beating Lukas Dostal from the circle off a faceoff, before picking up a second point with an assist on an Auston Matthews tally in the second. The 30-year-old McCabe had gone seven games without a point coming into Saturday's contest. He's up to five goals, 19 points, 132 hits and 82 blocked shots through 47 games this season....

Maple Leafs' Marshall Rifai: Brought up from AHL
Rifai was summoned from AHL Toronto on Sunday.
The Leafs brought him up on an emergency basis due to the absences of Mark Giordano (personal), Morgan Rielly (suspension) and William Lagesson (upper body). As a result, Rifai will probably make his NHL debut Monday versus St. Louis. The 25-year-old defender has two goals, 11 points and 48 PIM in 34 AHL contests this campaign.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Dennis Hildeby: Back to AHL
Hildeby was reassigned to AHL Toronto on Sunday.
Hildeby was called upon to back up Ilya Samsonov while Martin Jones (undisclosed) was unavailable, but the 22-year-old netminder will head back to the AHL with Jones returning to action. Hildeby has yet to make an NHL appearance. He's 12-7-4 with a .913 save percentage for the Marlies this season.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Three assists in win
Liljegren recorded three assists in Saturday's 9-2 victory over Anaheim.
Two of Liljegren's three helpers came on the power play as the Leafs cruised to a lopsided win. The 24-year-old blueliner now has five assists in his last two contests after going 11 games without a point. Overall, Liljegren's up to 14 points (two goals, 12 assists) through 36 games this season. He should continue to work on Toronto's top pairing and power-play unit while Mark Giordano (personal) and Morgan Rielly (suspension) are unavailable.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Mark Giordano: Shifts to non-roster list
Giordano (personal) was placed on the non-roster list Saturday, per CapFriendly.
Giordano sat out Saturday's 9-2 win over Anaheim following the death of his father Thursday. His addition to the non-roster list probably means he won't be available for Monday's contest versus St. Louis, either. Giordano has earned seven points, 44 shots on goal and 76 blocked shots in 36 games this season.... See More ... See Less
