Maple Leafs' Frederik Andersen: Draws start versus Canes
Andersen will tend the twine in Tuesday's road game versus the Hurricanes, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.
Andersen is coming off a troubling outing where he was yanked after allowing six goals on 28 shots to the Bruins. The Canes lead the league with 38.7 shots per game but rank 29th at 2.50 goals per game. This will be a solid opportunity for Andersen to get back on track... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Calle Rosen: Secures extension
Rosen signed a two-year contract extension with Toronto on Monday.
While Rosen's deal actually comes with a reduced salary ($750,000 versus $925,000), it is a one-way deal that will ensure he gets to spend some time in the NHL. By agreeing to terms with Rosen, the Leafs may have tipped their hand in regards to Martin Marincin's future with the club, as the 26-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent after the 2018-19 campaign....

Maple Leafs' Steven Oleksy: Traded to Toronto
Oleksy was traded to the Maple Leafs for winger Adam Cracknell on Monday.
Neither player has an NHL appearance this season. Oleksy -- who has 73 career NHL games under his belt at age 32 -- will serve as organizational depth on the blue line for his new club.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Zach Hyman: Handed two-game suspension
Hyman has been suspended two games for interference on Boston's Charlie McAvoy, per the NHL's Department of Player Safety.
This ruling is in response to Hyman's late hit on McAvoy in Saturday's 6-3 road loss. Hyman didn't have a history of such infractions, so it may come as a surprise that he's been assessed a two-game ban, but at any rate, the winger won't be eligible to play again until Saturday's road game against the Panthers....

Maple Leafs' Zach Hyman: Subjected to league hearing
Hyman will have a hearing with the NHL's Department of Player Safety on Sunday for interference on Charlie McAvoy of the Bruins in the previous night's game.
Hyman, who ended up with a pair of fight-minute major penalties -- one for fighting and another for interference -- along with a game misconduct infraction, drilled the Boston defenseman moments after McAvoy cleared the puck along the end boards in the third period of an eventual 6-3 road loss for the Leafs. Working in Hyman's favor as far as a ruling is concerned is that he didn't appear to make contact with McAvoy's head and the Bruins skater, fortunately, didn't sustain a lasting injury....

Maple Leafs' Zach Hyman: May face supplemental discipline
The NHL Department of Player Safety may suspend Hyman for a late hit on Boston's Charlie McAvoy during Saturday's win over the Bruins, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.
Hyman was ejected for his hit, and McAvoy briefly left the game to be evaluated but returned to the bench in the final minutes. Hyman's not a repeat offender so he wouldn't face a lengthy ban. Expect a judgement to be handed down soon with the Maple Leafs' next game on Tuesday against the Hurricanes.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Garret Sparks: Appears in relief
Sparks appeared in relief Saturday and stopped all four shots he faced against the Bruins.
Coach Mike Babcock pulled Frederik Andersen early in the third period. Sparks was solid, but that doesn't make him a worthy fantasy play. His ice time will be limited to back-to-back games.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Frederik Andersen: Mercy pull after off night
Andersen was chased from the net early in the third period of Saturday's game after surrendering six goals on 28 shots by the Bruins.
Andersen has been playing at MVP levels for most of the season, but he looked tired Saturday night. He was replaced by Garret Sparks. Andersen should rebound next time out.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Andreas Johnsson: Continues to impress
Johnsson scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Bruins.
Johnsson has been an offensive revelation in the last two weeks. He has five goals and the same number of assists in his last six games. Johnsson is a sharp play right now and could be a fantasy steal if he continues to see time alongside Auston Matthews.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Jake Gardiner: Suddenly surging
Gardiner delivered two more assists Saturday in a 6-3 loss to Boston.
Gardiner has a four-game, seven-point streak on the go. Maybe his game really is waking up after such a slow start. The Leafs sure hope so. Take advantage.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Streak at five games and 10 points
Matthews scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Bruins.
Matthews has hit the score sheet in every match since his return -- that's five games and 10 points, including six goals. He has 26 points in just 16 games this season and continues to show that he's perhaps the best sniping center in the NHL.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Frederik Andersen: In goal Saturday
Andersen will start between the pipes Saturday against the Bruins in Beantown, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports.
Andersen faces a barrage of shots on nearly a nightly basis, having seen at least 40 in each of his last four starts. Still, he's surrendered no more than three goals in each of those outings and owns a 4-0-0 record over that span. He will look to extend that winning streak to five Saturday against a Bruins team riding a three-game losing streak.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Not injured in vehicle collission
Kapanen avoided an injury after being involved in a car accident with Maple Leafs teammate William Nylander on Friday, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.
Kapanen reportedly was in the passenger seat when the collision took place outside of the team's practice facility. Fortunately, both players came out of the vehicle unscathed. The Maple Leafs are now in Boston preparing for an important divisional clash with the Bruins.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Uninjured in car accident
Nylander and Maple Leafs teammate Kasperi Kapanen avoided any injuries in a minor car accident Friday, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.
The collision reportedly transpired as the two forwards were leaving the Toronto practice rink Friday, but fortunately, they are both OK. The Leafs are now in Boston getting ready to take on the Bruins.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Scoreless in return
Nylander was held off the scoresheet Thursday against the Red Wings in his first game of the season.
He started the game beside Auston Matthews and Patrick Marleau, his regular linemates from 2017-18. It will take a bit for Nylander to get consistency in his game, but expect increasing flashes of brilliance with each passing game. Plug him in.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Jake Gardiner: Offense waking up
Gardiner delivered two assists in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Red Wings.
He has struggled to put up points this season, but he now has five points in three games. It's not a streak by any means, but perhaps it's a sign that Gardiner could get back to a 40-45 point pace going forward.... See More ... See Less
