Toronto Demotes Zigomanis

News: Mike Zigomanis was sent to the AHL Toronto Marlies on Sunday.

Zigomanis In Tough For Job With Leafs

News: Mike Zigomanis is in tough to win the fourth line center job in Toronto this season.
Analysis: He's battling as hard has he can but he's up against Darryl Boyce and Philippe Dupuis, the latter of which coach Ron Wilson is eyeing for a job on the Leafs' top PK unit. Looks like another year in the A is in the works.

Zigomanis Re-Signs With Leafs

News: Zigomanis has re-signed with the Leafs, reports the Toronto Star.
Analysis: He doesn't have much fantasy value. He started with the Buds last season and was one of their best face-off men. But his hands were pretty much stone -- at least in the NHL -- and he only tallied one helper in eight games. He's one of those classic Quad-A guys -- strong minor leaguer but the jump up is just too big. He will likely provide leadership to the Marlies for next season.

Mike Zigomanis

Zigomanis placed on IR

News: The Sports Xchange reports that Penguins C Mike Zigomanis (shoulder) has been placed on injured reserve. The news came Sunday, and it seemed like a relief to coach Michel Therrien, who had grown tired of answering questions about Zigomanis, who has not played since Dec. 3.

News: Pittsburgh C Mike Zigomanis scored the Penguins lone goal on Saturday in a 3-1 loss to the Vancouver Canucks.
