Maple Leafs' Mitch Marner: Extends point streak
Marner tallied two assists and fired six shots on goal in Monday's 4-2 win over Columbus.
Marner has been red hot recently, picking up one goal and nine points during a five-game point streak which began Nov. 10 against the Bruins.The 21-year-old forward will look to continue his hot streak Wednesday in a road matchup with the Hurricanes.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Two points in win over Jackets
Tavares scored a goal and an assist in Monday's 4-2 win over the Blue Jackets.
After the Ducks snapped his seven-game point streak Friday, Tavares wasted no time in starting a new one. The former Islander now has 13 goals and 25 points in 21 games to begin his tenure in Toronto, and the 28-year-old likely only needs to avoid an injury to establish new career highs in scoring this season....

Maple Leafs' Zach Hyman: Lights lamp twice against Jackets
Hyman scored twice, including the game-winner, in Monday's 4-2 win over the Blue Jackets.
He came into the night with only one goal in 20 games and no points at all in his last five, but Hyman snapped his slump in impressive fashion. He'll have a decent fantasy floor in season-long leagues as long as he remains on a line with John Tavares and Mitch Marner, but Hyman's inconsistency makes him a better tournament play in DFS....

Maple Leafs' Frederik Andersen: Turns aside 37 shots in win
Andersen stopped 37 of 39 shots in Monday's 4-2 win over the Blue Jackets.
Columbus scored twice in the final five minutes of the first period, but Andersen refused to let the deficit grow after that, making a number of big stops in the second until the Toronto offense could get rolling. The 29-year-old has now won four straight starts, boosting his save percentage in November to a dizzying .964.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Frederik Andersen: Named Monday's starter
Andersen will start Monday against Columbus, Dave McCarthy of NHL.com reports.
The Maple Leafs' No. 1 goalie has won his last five starts and currently owns an 11-5-0 record. Playing at an elite level, Andersen has given up just six goals over that span while posting a 1.20 GAA along with a .967 save percentage. On Monday, the Dane will face Sergei Bobrovsky, a netminder also on a roll having won four of his last five starts.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Trevor Moore: Redirected to AHL
Moore was loaned to AHL Toronto on Saturday.
Moore was called up as a spare forward ahead of Friday's 2-1 overtime win over the Ducks, but he ultimately wasn't needed, which is a shame since he's from California. At any rate, Moore will rejoin the Marlies, with whom he's averaged a point per game (nine goals, three assists) this season.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Garret Sparks: Makes 38 saves in victory
Sparks allowed one goal on 39 shots in a 2-1 victory against the Ducks on Friday.
This was his best start of the season and maybe the best performance of the 25-year-old's two-year career, as his 38 saves were a career high. Regardless, Sparks isn't that much of a fantasy asset. He will likely rack up some wins, but he won't be good enough in the other categories to be worth starting most nights. He owns an .896 save percentage and 3.05 GAA in 21 career NHL starts....

Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Establishes new career high in goals
Kapanen scored two goals -- including the shorthanded game-winner -- in Thursday's 5-3 triumph over San Jose.
With this effort, Kapanen has topped last season's career high of seven goals in 38 games, taking exactly half as many appearances to score eight. His 21.1 shooting percentage is probably unsustainable, but all the talent around Kapanen should keep his floor high. With a plus-2 finish here, Kapanen's rating is up to an impressive plus-10....

Maple Leafs' Mitch Marner: Three more points Thursday
Marner recorded a goal and two assists -- one shorthanded -- in Thursday's 5-3 win over San Jose.
Marner took over with the game tied 3-3 in the second period, assisting on Kasperi Kapanen's game-winning, shorthanded goal before potting the only goal of the third period himself. The fourth overall pick in the 2015 draft was already no slouch with 61 and 69 points in his first two seasons, but he's taken his game to a new level with 25 points through the first 19 contests in his third campaign....

Maple Leafs' Frederik Andersen: Stops 42 in 5-3 win
Andersen made 42 saves in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Sharks.
The two teams combined for 79 shots in this fast-paced affair, but Andersen was able to shut the door after a rocky first period saw the Sharks take a 3-2 lead into intermission. With a goalie who seems to play better the more shots he sees in a game and an offense that makes any deficit seem insurmountable, the Maple Leafs look primed to rack up a whole lot of wins this season....

Maple Leafs' Garret Sparks: Scheduled to start Friday
Sparks will start in goal Friday, taking on the Ducks in Anaheim for the second half of the back-to-back set, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.
Sparks faltered in last Saturday's road start against the Bruins, as he coughed up five goals on 34 shots on the way to his first loss of the season. He'll look for better results facing a perpetually banged-up Ducks squad that has gone 3-5-2 in its last 10 games.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Resumes skating with team
Matthews (shoulder) skated with his team Thursday, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports. This marks the first time he's done so since sustaining the injury in an Oct. 27 contest against the Jets.
This is a sure sign of progress for Matthews, though he still isn't expected to return until late November if the initial recovery timeline holds up. The Maple Leafs have won four of the last seven games without the 2016 first overall pick, as John Tavares has amassed nine points over that span.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Frederik Andersen: Tending twine Thursday
Andersen will defend the cage versus the Sharks on Thursday, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.
Andersen -- who currently leads the league with 10 wins -- will look for his 11th of the season against a Sharks squad that is putting 36.1 shots on net per game (second-highest in the league). While it figures to be a heavy workload for the Dane, he is 6-2-0 with a .955 save percentage in games in which he has faced 30-plus shots this season.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Morgan Rielly: Refuses to be stopped
Rielly scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Kings.
Rielly's 52-point 2017-18 season was supposed to be his breakout campaign, but Rielly now has 23 points in 18 games and is on pace to shatter that. With eight goals, he's one score away from tying the career high he set back in 2015-16. Approaching the 20-game mark, Rielly is in Norris Trophy discussion.... See More ... See Less
