Leafs' Van Reimsdyk: Six Shots In Loss

News: Van Riemsdyk fired six shots on net Tuesday, but like his fellow Leafs, he couldn't solve the Lightning goaltenders. He finished minus-2 in a 3-0 loss.
Analysis: JVR has 271 SOG this season and 30 goals, but we're pretty sure he'd trade it all for a playoff berth. And that's precisely what the Leafs lost Tuesday night.

Toronto's Van Riemsdyk Hits 30-Goal Mark

News: Van Riemsdyk hit the 30-goal mark for the first time in his career in Thursday's win over Boston.
Analysis: He's done it in 76 games, so there's always a chance that JVR can add a couple more by season's end. His overall pace has slowed of late -- he has four goals in his last 10 games -- but James van Riemsdyk should be a solid play until season's end.

Leafs' Van Riemsdyk Ties Record For Quickest Goal

News: Van Riemsdyk matched an NHL record for fastest goal from the start of a period when he scored four seconds into the second period of Friday's game against the Flyers.
Analysis: Tyler Bozak won the opening face-off and stepped through his man, pushing the puck toward the left wing toward JVR. The winger took the puck a couple of strides before ripping it home top cheddar over opposing goalie Steve Mason's shoulder. Van Riemsdyk now has 29 goals, including two in his last two games.

Leafs' JVR: Second Goal In Last 12 Games

News: Van Riemsdyk scored his 28th goal of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Blues. It is just his second goal in his last 12 games.
Analysis: Those 12 games have been rough for Van Riemsdyk -- he has just five points and a minus-six rating, and the Leafs have gone 4-8.

Leafs' Van Riemsdyk Returns After Hit

News: Van Riemsdyk returned to Tuesday night's games, TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Analysis: Van Riemsdyk went back to the locker room after taking a tough hit from teammate Dion Phaneuf, but has apparently been cleared to return to action. Crisis averted, for now.

Leafs' Van Riemdyk Exits After Taking Hard Hit

News: Van Riemsdyk exited Tuesday's game after taking a hard hit from teammate Dion Phaneuf, TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Analysis: Van Riemsdyk has a concussion history, which makes this situation especially concerning. Phaneuf was gunning for an opposing player, but after an unfortunate miss, took out Van Riemsdyk in a high speed collision. A Van Riemsdyk injury would be a tough blow to the Leafs, as the starting left winger is second on the team in both goals (27) and total points (53).

Leafs' Van Riemsdyk Continues To Shine Offensively

News: Van Riemsdyk scored two goals, including a shorthanded marker, in Saturday's overtime loss to Montreal. The points stretched his current streak to four games and seven points, including four goals.
Analysis: He has five points in two games since returning from the Olympics where he had suffered a throat injury. He sure doesn't seem to be suffering any ill effects. And he just continues to rack up career scoring marks (his 26 goals and 52 points are both well beyond his previous bests). You know what to do.

Leafs' Van Riemsdyk: Three-Assist Night

News: Van Riemsdyk set up three goals Thursday in an overtime loss to the Islanders. He now has 50 points for the first time in an NHL season.
Analysis: He has been unstoppable of late -- he has 13 points, including five goals, in his last 10 NHL games. You know what to do.

Leafs' Van Riemsdyk: Day Off Practice

News: Van Riemsdyk (soreness) got the day off practice Tuesday, reports the Toronto Star.
Analysis: He was banged up at the Olympics after taking a puck to the throat, but is expected to able to suit up in the Leafs' first game back.

Leafs' JVR Deemed Healthy Following Olympics

News: The Leafs have said that James van Riemsdyk (upper body) is feeling fine after being banged up in Team USA's shutout loss to Finland on Saturday, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports.
Analysis: Van Riemsdyk saw limited minutes Saturday while dealing with some swelling in his throat, but the Leafs have no fears about him missing any game action coming out of the break. Along with Phil Kessel, Van Riemsdyk is expected to receive several days of practice off just to afford him some rest after a taxing Olympics.

Leafs' Van Riemsdyk (Throat): Limited Ice Time

News: Van Riemsdyk (throat) has seen limited ice time in Saturday's game following his return from injury, according to CBC's game coverage.
Analysis: It's not known if he's struggling with swelling in the throat and that's keeping his shifts short and far between. There's also the problem of the game being out of reach for the Americans -- that may be the bigger issue. Fingers crossed this isn't a long-term issue.

Leafs' van Riemsdyk Returns Saturday

News: Van Riemsdyk has returned to the ice for Team USA, Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Van Riemsdyk was hit in the throat while blocking a shot late in the first period but has returned and is apparently.

Leafs' Van Riemsdyk Leaves Saturday With Injury

News: Van Riemsdyk left the ice late in the first period after getting hit in the throat with a puck during Saturday's game against Finland, Helene Elliot of the L.A. Times reports.
Analysis: Van Riemsdyk blocked a shot and took a puck to the throat towards the end of the first period and skated very slowly to the bench. He'll have the full intermission to rest, but it is still not clear whether or not he'll return to the game.

Leafs' Van Riemsdyk Shining For Americans

News: Van Riemsdyk has contributed four assists over three games for the United States.
Analysis: The excellent play of Van Riemsdyk and fellow linemates Phil Kessel and Joe Pavelski is as big of a reason as any why the United States was able to claim the No. 2 overall seed after the completion of pool play. He'll continue to receive ample ice time until his productivity wanes.

Leafs' Van Riemsdyk: 15 Points In Last 14 Games

News: Van Riemsdyk picked up his 23rd goal of the season in Thursday's win over Tampa Bay. He has eight goals and seven assists in his last 14 games.
Analysis: That flu he had earlier in the week is long gone. He is increasing his career bests with every passing game and is clearly making an impact in front of the net. Take full advantage.

Leafs' JVR Looks Good To Go For Tuesday

News: James van Riemsdyk (illness) is expected to play Tuesday against the Panthers, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: The forward was given the day off Monday after feeling a little ill, but it sounds as though he won't be forced to miss any game action because of it. In addition to the illness, James van Riemsdyk has dealt with a foot injury recently, but it hasn't hindered his production at all. He has delivered six points over his last four games.

News: James van Riemsdyk (flu) indicated Tuesday that he is feeling better, Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun reports.
Analysis: James van Riemsdyk missed Monday's practice, but it sounds like he has a decent chance of suiting up for Tuesday's 7:30 ET contest against the Panthers after catching an early flight to join his teammates in Florida.

Leafs' Van Riemsdyk Battling Flu

News: Van Riemsdyk missed Monday's practice due to the flu, David Alter of Sportsnet 590 reports.
Analysis: Consider him day-to-day for now, with the chance of being ready to return to action for Tuesday's game in Florida. JVR has 22 goals and 23 assists through 55 games this season.

Analysis: He has two goals and four assists in that span and 45 points on the season. He has clearly found his comfort zone -- and his game -- in blue and white. His game is on the way up.

Leafs' JVR To Give It A Go Saturday

News: Van Riemsdyk (foot) will play Saturday against the Senators, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Analysis: The forward was on the ice for morning skate and pregame warmups and looks like he won't have to miss any action on account of the injury. He's provided two goals and two assists over his last three games and looks to be a safe play against Ottawa.

Maple Leafs' Van Riemsdyk Dealing With Sore Foot

News: Van Riemsdyk is dealing with a sore foot thanks to a pair of new skates, but he is not expected to miss any action, David Alter of Sportsnet 590 reports.
Analysis: Van Riemsdyk was held out of practice Friday to rest his foot, but it appears he should be good to go for the Maple Leafs' next game Saturday against the Senators.

Maple Leafs' Van Riemsdyk Misses Practice Friday

News: Van Riemsdyk did not take part in Friday's practice, David Alter of Sportsnet 590 reports.
Analysis: The reason for James van Riemsdyk's absence was not provided, but he did leave Thursday's game early, so it's possible he is dealing with some sort of injury. Expect another update on van Riemsdyk's status prior to Toronto's next game Saturday.

Leafs' Van Riemsdyk: New Career Goal Mark

News: Van Riemsdyk scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's win. The goal was his 22nd and a new career high. The assist was also a new career best (21).
Analysis: He's on pace for a 65-point season. But he has 16 points since the Christmas break (17 games) and could do even better than 65 if he continues to push like he is right now. He's an auto-roll right now.

Leafs' JVR: New Career Mark In Points

News: Van Riemsdyk (lower body) netted the game winner Tuesday in a 3-2 victory over the Lightning.
Analysis: And with that, he equalled his career mark in goals (21) and established a new career best in points (41). He has 10 points in his last 10 games and 15 in his last 18. Ride him hard. We bet the Flyers would if he was still wearing orange and ... wait, too bad, so sad Paul Holmgren. You did this to yourself.

Leafs' Van Riemsdyk Fine To Play Tuesday

News: Coach Randy Carlyle said after Monday's practice that James van Riemsdyk (lower body) would be fine to play Tuesday vs. the Lightning, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Analysis: James van Riemsdyk looked to be questionable for Tuesday after tweaking his leg during Monday's skate, but Carlyle extinguished much of the concern when he met with the media after the session. Carlyle said van Riemsdyk is just nursing some nagging injuries, and while more maintenance days may be required going forward, it's not expected to prevent him from suiting up for any games.
