Leafs' Phaneuf: No Worlds Because Of Injury

News: Dion Phaneuf revealed after the season that his hand is still bothering him and he won't be participating in the World Championships as a result, reports Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun.
Analysis: He injured his hand in a fight in January, which aggravated an existing issue at the time. Apparently his hand is still swollen, so it's rest for the much maligned captain who may have played his last game for Toronto.

Leafs' Phaneuf Skips Morning Skate With Illness

News: Dion Phaneuf missed Friday's morning skate with an illness, but is expected to play later in the evening against the Flames, Roger Millions of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: Dion Phaneuf's availability should be formally announced during pregame warmups, but the illness is still worth noting in the event his condition takes a turn for the worse in the afternoon. Though he missed extended action in February with a hand injury, Phaneuf has still compiled 25 points in 56 games, putting him on track to surpass last season's total of 31 points.

Analysis: His name continues to circulate in trade rumors, but it's unlikely that Dion Phaneuf's going anywhere until the offseason. So get him back in your lineup. Now.

Analysis: Dion Phaneuf practiced for the third straight day Wednesday, skating with Korbinian Holzer as part of a defensive pairing while also participating with the Leafs' top power-play unit. Assuming he endures no setbacks with his hand during Thursday's morning skate, expect him to be activated shortly thereafter.

Leafs' Phaneuf (Hand) Could Return Thursday

News: Dion Phaneuf (hand) could return to the lineup by Thursday, Jonas Siegel of TSN 1050 reports.
Analysis: Dion Phaneuf took part in his first full practice with the team Monday, and could be on track to finally rejoin the lineup after nearly a month absence. The defenseman has posted 22 points over 48 games so far this season, and his return to the lineup could provide a boost to a Leafs club that has been struggling lately.

Sens' Phaneuf (Hand) A Full Paricipant Monday

News: Dion Phaneuf (hand) was a full participant in practice Monday, David Alter of the Leafs' official site reports.

Leafs' Phaneuf Skates Saturday

News: Dion Phaneuf joined the Leafs for their morning skate on Saturday, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Analysis: While Dion Phaneuf has already been ruled out for both of the Leafs' games over the weekend, he called his participation in Saturday's morning skate a "step in the right direction". The team is still uncertain as to when he'll be able to return to action, but it could be as soon as Feb. 26 against the Flyers.

Leafs Rule Phaneuf Out For Weekend

News: Dion Phaneuf (hand) has been ruled out for both of the Leafs' games over the weekend against the Hurricanes and Jets, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Analysis: According to coach Peter Horachek, Dion Phaneuf went in for additional testing on his hand Tuesday, which indicated he required more time off to let the injury heal. Phaneuf had been back on the ice Monday in anticipation of a return to action, but he'll have his timetable pushed back at least another week. The Maple Leafs hope Phaneuf will be ready to go for the team's Feb. 26 tilt with the Flyers.

Sens' Phaneuf (Hand) Skates Before Pracitce Monday

News: Dion Phaneuf (hand) skated by himself prior to the Leafs' practice Monday, David Alter of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Dion Phaneuf didn't take part of the team portion of practice, but his presence on the ice at all is an indication he is moving in the right direction. The blueliner remains without a timetable, but his next step would be rejoining the team at practice before returning to the lineup.

Leafs' Phaneuf Still Out

News: Dion Phaneuf (hand) remains sidelined, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Analysis: As Tuesday's game against the Rangers approaches, coach Peter Horachek relayed Monday that he wasn't sure when Dion Phaneuf -- who last suited up on Jan. 21 -- would be back in action for the Leafs.

Leafs Place Phaneuf On Injured Reserve

News: Dion Phaneuf (hand) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.
Analysis: It's just a procedural move to make roster room for goalie Antoine Bibeau, who was recalled from AHL Toronto on an emergency basis Saturday. Phanuef had already been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Oilers but will be eligible to come off IR for any of the Leafs' subsequent matches to follow.

Return Won't Come Saturday For Leafs' Phaneuf

News: Dion Phaneuf (hand) will not return to the Toronto lineup Saturday against Edmonton, David Alter of MapleLeafs.com reports.
Analysis: Dion Phaneuf remained limited to working out on the ice with the team trainer Saturday morning, which prompted coach Peter Horachek to rule him out for another game. It was always something of a long shot for the blueliner to suit up this weekend, but Tuesday's game against the Rangers still remains a viable target return date.

Leafs' Phaneuf To Remain Out Friday

News: Dion Phaneuf (hand) will not return to action Friday against the Devils, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports.
Analysis: Dion Phaneuf was on the ice for Thursday's practice, but didn't skate as part of a regular pairing or participate in power-play drills. It seems the Toronto captain is still ailing a bit, and while he hasn't been ruled out for Saturday's home date with the Oilers, his availability appears unlikely at this juncture. A more realistic date for Phaneuf's return might be Tuesday against the Rangers.

Leafs' Phaneuf Expected To Miss Another Week

News: Coach Peter Horachek said Saturday that Dion Phaneuf (hand) will likely be out at least another week, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Analysis: Dion Phaneuf was able to get on the ice following the team's morning session Saturday, marking the first time he's been able to skate since the the All-Star break. While it's good to see that he's making some semblance of progress, Phaneuf figures to miss a handful of more games, enabling Korbinian Holzer to see some sustained run on the Leafs' top defensive pairing.

Leafs' Phaneuf Week-To-Week

News: Dion Phaneuf is week-to-week with an upper-body injury.
Analysis: Per the report, Dion Phaneuf sustained his injury prior to the NHL All-Star break, with the week-to-week tag suggesting that the blueliner will miss multiple games, starting with Wednesday's tilt against New Jersey. Another report indicates the injury may be an aggravation of a prior hand issue that was again bothered in last Wednesday's game against the Senators.

Leafs' Phaneuf Could Miss Time

News: Dion Phaneuf, who missed practice Monday with a hand injury, is expected to be out a while, per Dave Feschuk of the Toronto Star.
Analysis: While the report doesn't include a timetable for the blueliner's return, it looks like Dion Phaneuf -- who has recorded 22 points and 85 PIM in 48 games to date -- will miss Wednesday's game against New Jersey, at a minimum.

Leafs' Phaneuf Records Seven PIM On Wednesday

News: Dion Phaneuf recorded seven PIM and four shots on goal in Wednesday's loss to the Senators.
Analysis: The blueliner has compiled seven PIM in back-to-back games to improve his total to an impressive 85 for the season, but it's his lack of offense lately that's been the bigger story. He's failed to register a point in his last eight games -- his longest scoring drought since he concluded last season with a nine-game slump.

Point Streak Hits Four For Leafs' Phaneuf

News: Dion Phaneuf registered an assist in his fourth straight game in Saturday's loss to the Jets.
Analysis: It's the longest point streak of the season for Dion Phaneuf, who has probably been usurped by Cody Franson as the Leafs' top fantasy blueliner this season. Even though he might be proceeding to the downside of his career, the 29-year-old Phaneuf is certainly productive enough to warrant a roster spot across most formats. He's tallied 22 points in 40 games this season.

Leafs' Phaneuf Delivering On The Power Play

News: Dion Phaneuf's assist Wednesday against Boston gives him three in his last four games. It came on the power play.
Analysis: Eleven of his 20 points this season have come with the man advantage and he's only played 38 games. Last season, he had 11 power-play points in 80 games. He's having a solid season despite all the protests from Leafs' fans.

Leafs' Phaneuf: Assist And Gaffe

News: Dion Phaneuf picked up a helper in Monday's loss to the Lightning. He has four points (one goal, three assists) in his last 10 games.
Analysis: For all the flack this guy takes in Toronto, he's still on pace for just his second 40-plus point season since 2008-09. He has already cleared 100 hits (101) in just 37 games. And his plus-8 rating is already among the best of his career. But his giveaway in the third resulted in the Bolts' game winner -- thankfully, those gaffes don't typically hurt fantasy owners.
