FA Ashton Signs With KHL Team

News: Carter Ashton has signed with Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod of the KHL, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.
Analysis: A former first-round draft pick, the 24-year-old Carter Ashton logged just seven NHL appearances last season, after managing three points in 32 games in 2013-14. He has yet to score a goal through 52 career NHL games.

Ashton Chooses Europe Over Lightning

News: Carter Ashton, a restricted free agent, has informed the Lightning that he intends to play in Europe next season, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: It's unclear where the 24-year-old Carter Ashton is headed, but he seems to be choosing a more premier role in Europe rather than what portended to be another season spent mostly in the AHL. There's a chance he'll be back with another NHL franchise at some point down the road, but fantasy owners shouldn't be holding their collective breath.

Leafs Trade Ashton To Tampa Bay

News: The Maple Leafs have traded Carter Ashton, as well as David Broll, to Tampa Bay in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2016, Mark Masters of TSN reports.
Analysis: Toronto made the trade to create some roster flexibility. Before the trade, the Leafs were at the league maximum with 50 players under contract. Now, with the departure of Carter Ashton and Broll, the Leafs have created some breathing space by freeing up two contract openings. Ashton registered zero points and was minus-3 through seven games with the Leafs this season.

Leafs Reassign Ashton

News: Carter Ashton was reassigned to AHL Toronto on Wednesday, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports.
Analysis: It had been reported that Carter Ashton would stick with the Maple Leafs after going unclaimed off waivers earlier in the day, but the team decided to change course after further deliberation. The 23-year-old Ashton proved to be a capable scorer during his previous stints in the minors, but he owns no goals and three assists over 54 career NHL games.

Leafs' Ashton Clears Waivers

News: Carter Ashton cleared waivers Wednesday, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Analysis: Rather than reporting to AHL Toronto, Carter Ashton will stick with the parent club as an extra forward. He'll be available to play for the Maple Leafs when needed and can still be sent to the minors at any point, so having him clear waivers just creates a little more roster flexibility.

Maple Leafs Place Ashton On Waivers

News: The Maple Leafs placed Carter Ashton on waivers Tuesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: It's not immediately clear who will replace Carter Ashton on Toronto's roster, but that should become clear soon. Ashton will head to AHL Toronto if he's not claimed by another team.

Leafs Bring Ashton Back From Conditioning Stint

News: Carter Ashton was recalled from his conditioning stint at AHL Toronto on Monday, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: After completing a 20-game suspension, Carter Ashton headed to the Leafs' AHL affiliate to play in a couple games before rejoining the squad. He had appeared in only six games with Toronto before serving the suspension, leaving him as little more than an extra forward most nights.

Suspension Over For Leafs' Ashton

News: Carter Ashton has completed his 20-game suspension for violating the league's performance enhancing substances protocol and has been reinstated onto the Leafs' active roster, James Mirtle of The Globe and Mail reports. He will now head to AHL Toronto for a conditioning stint, according to David Alter of MapleLeafs.com.
Analysis: Since he hasn't been able to play since early November, Carter Ashton will likely spend multiple games on the assignment before he's called back up to the parent club. Ashton had largely served as a healthy scratch for the Leafs prior to his suspension, making just six appearances on the season. He'll likely see limited duty again once he rejoins the Leafs.

Leafs' Ashton Suspended 20 Games

News: Carter Ashton has been suspended 20 games without pay for violating the NHL and NHLPA's Performance Enhancing Substances Program, Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: Carter Ashton will forfeit a whopping $169,185 for the violation. A statement from the forward said that the positive test stemmed from his ingesting a banned substance through his inhaler following an asthma attack in late August. Ashton said he accepted the 20-game suspension, so it doesn't sound like he'll appeal the ruling. He'll be eligible to return to game action Dec. 20 against the Flyers.

Leafs Sign Ashton To One-Year, Two-Way Contract

News: Carter Ashton inked a one-year, two-way deal with the Leafs on Wednesday worth $850,000, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: Carter Ashton played 32 games with the Maple Leafs last season, registering three assists. He spent time between the Leafs and their AHL affiliate throughout the year, but didn't find as much success in the NHL as he did in the minors, where he scored 16 goals and assisted on seven others. Ashton will likely find himself in a similar role this season unless he can impress the coaches in training camp.

Leafs Recall Ashton

News: Carter Ashton has been recalled from the AHL's Toronto Marlies, the Toronto Sun reports.
Analysis: The report notes that Carter Ashton was skating on a line with Nazem Kadri and David Clarkson on Tuesday, an arrangement that could give Ashton some short-term fantasy utility if it sticks.

Maple Leafs' Ashton Demoted To AHL

News: Carter Ashton was returned to AHL Toronto on Saturday, James Mirtle of the Toronto Globe and Mail reports.
Analysis: Carter Ashton didn't play in a game during his two-day stint with the team, as he was a healthy scratch Saturday against the Bruins. The 23-year-old former first-round draft pick has yet to find any success in the NHL, but he has 16 goals in 22 games for the AHL Toronto Marlies this season.

Leafs Recall Ashton

News: Carter Ashton was recalled from AHL Toronto on Thursday, James Mirtle of the Toronto Globe and Mail reports.
Analysis: Carter Ashton will give coach Randy Carlyle an additional option on the fourth-line as the Leafs look to optimize their lineups over the next few games to keep their playoff hopes alive. The 23-year-old has three points and 19 PIM in 31 games this season.

Leafs Send Ashton Back To AHL

News: Carter Ashton was sent down to the Marlies of the AHL on Saturday, SportsNet590's David Alter reports.
Analysis: With Dave Bolland expected to return for Saturday's game, Carter Ashton's roster spot is needed. He'll head back to the Marlies for the time being but you can expect to see him again at some point.

Leafs Recall Ashton

News: Carter Ashton has been recalled from the AHL's Toronto Marlies, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: With the Marlies, Carter Ashton has notched 18 points in 16 games, but with the big club his fantasy impact has been limited, given that he has just three assists and 19 penalty minutes in 30 games with the Maple Leafs to date.

Leafs' Ashton Activated And Sent To AHL

News: Carter Ashton (hand) was activated from injured reserve and assigned to AHL Toronto on Friday, James Mirtle of the Toronto Globe and Mail reports.
Analysis: Carter Ashton has been out since Jan. 30 with the injury that is believed to be a broken hand. He had the Olympic break to rest up and appears close to being ready for action. He will take a brief trip to the AHL to get back to full speed, then should re-join the team shortly.

News: Carter Ashton (hand) underwent a bone scan Tuesday on what is believed to be a broken hand, reports the Toronto Sun.
Analysis: He has been dealing with a hand injury since late January, but this is the first indication that it was actually broken. Fingers crossed the MRI was to assess healing and nothing more. There are no results known at this point.

Leafs' Ashton Misses Practice

News: Carter Ashton (hand) did not practice with the team Wednesday, David Alter of Sportsnet 590 reports.
Analysis: Carter Ashton got hurt during Monday's practice, and sat out Tuesday as well. At this point, he looks like a long shot to suit up for Thursday's game against the Islanders.

Leafs' Ashton Misses Practice

News: Carter Ashton (hand), who left Monday's practice early, was not spotted at Tuesday's session, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Carter Ashton -- who has three assists in 30 games to date -- was dealing with a hand injury prior to the Olympic break, with his absence from practice Tuesday suggesting that he remains iffy as Thursday's game against the Islanders approaches.

Leafs Move Ashton To IR

News: Carter Ashton (hand) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Damien Cox of the Toronto Sun reports.
Analysis: With Carter Ashton not expected back for the next few games, the Leafs elected to move him to IR to clear up room for David Clarkson's (elbow) return to the lineup. Don't expect to see Ashton until after the break.

Leafs' Ashton Won't Play Tuesday

News: Carter Ashton (hand) will not play Tuesday against the Panthers, David Alter of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.
Analysis: At the moment, Carter Ashton's injury is not considered a long-term concern, but there's still a chance the Leafs will keep in the press box through the Winter Olympic break to give him enough time to heal up. Tuesday will mark the second consecutive game he's missed due to the injury.

Leafs' Ashton To Sit Saturday

News: Carter Ashton (hand) will not play Saturday against the Senators, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Frazer McLaren was further along in his recovery from injury than Carter Ashton, so he'll draw into the lineup on the fourth line. Ashton is still experiencing some soreness and may not be fully recovered from the injury until after the Winter Olympic break.

Maple Leafs' Ashton Dealing With Sore Hand

News: Carter Ashton is dealing with a hand injury, TSN's Mark Masters reports.
Analysis: Carter Ashton picked up the injury Wednesday, and it is apparently still an issue. It remains to be seen if the setback will prevent Ashton from playing in the Maple Leafs' next game Saturday against the Senators.

Carter Ashton

Leafs' Ashton Leaves Practice With Injury

News: Carter Ashton left Wednesday's practice with an undisclosed injury, Jonas Siegel of TSN reports.
Analysis: There wasn't an update of Carter Ashton's injury after practice, so the safest thing to do would be to consider him day-to-day until we hear more. The winger has three assists in 29 games this season, so even if his injury causes him to miss some time, it shouldn't be of concern to most fantasy owners.

Leafs Recall Ashton

News: The Maple Leafs recalled Carter Ashton from AHL Toronto on Wednesday, David Alter of Sportsnet 590 reports.
Analysis: Carter Ashton will take the place of Peter Holland on the Leafs' active roster, and could suit up Thursday against the Hurricanes. The winger recorded one assist and 14 PIM in 18 games with the Leafs before being sent down earlier this season.
