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.

Leafs' Phaneuf: First Goal In 20 Games

News: Dion Phaneuf scored the Leafs' only goal in a 4-1 loss to Carolina on Thursday night. It was just his second goal of the season.
Analysis: He fired a rocket from the left point; it went in just under the crossbar. He hadn't found twine in 19 games leading into Thursday, but he still has 17 points in 32 games. He's a worthy activation -- after all, he's on pace for more than 40 points. But the days of double-digit goals are long gone.

Toronto's Phaneuf Sets Up Two Goals

News: Dion Phaneuf delivered two assists in Tuesday's win over Calgary.
Analysis: He now has 15 points, but all but one are helpers. Still, he's targeting a mid-40s finish by way of points and there's definitely fantasy value in that ... no matter how much fans in Toronto hate the guy.

Leafs' Phaneuf: Five Assists In Last Six Games

News: Dion Phaneuf delivered two assists Tuesday in a win over the Stars. He five points -- all assists -- in his last six games.
Analysis: Is he warming up? Maybe, maybe not. His game is no longer about scoring goals off booming shots -- he only has one snipe so far this season. But take a look at his plus-10 rating -- that category hasn't been that high since 2007-08. He delivers middling fantasy value in most formats, so use accordingly.

Leafs' Phaneuf Picks Up Assist Thursday

News: Dion Phaneuf collected a power-play assist in Thursday's win over the Lightning.
Analysis: Dion Phaneuf has tallied assists in back-to-back games, bringing his point total up to 10 through 20 games. While not an elite fantasy defenseman, Phaneuf's combination of above-average scoring, huge PIM (40) and hit (58) totals, and a strong plus/minus (plus-7) have made him a good roster piece.

Leafs' Phaneuf Gets First Goal Of Season

News: Dion Phaneuf scored his first goal of the season -- a power-play tally -- in Tuesday's loss to Arizona.
Analysis: It just took 12 games to net that puppy. Dion Phaneuf's game has morphed over the years, and he's spending more time focusing on shutting down opponents than on scoring. Right now, he's on pace for about 35 points this season, much of which is due to his production with the man advantage. Right now, there's more value in the name than the product.

Wednesday's Game Postponed For Phaneuf, Leafs

News: Dion Phaneuf and the Maple Leafs will not play Wednesday after their scheduled game against the Senators was postponed in light of the ongoing crisis in Ottawa, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: Multiple gunmen reportedly fired shots Wednesday morning in the downtown area of the Canadian capital, with one shooter dead and possibly one or more still at large. With several government buildings on lockdown, safety will understandably take greater precedence than proceeding with the game as scheduled. The NHL has yet to announce a make-up date for the postponed contest.

Leafs' Phaneuf Moving To Left Side This Season

News: Dion Phaneuf will move to the left side of the ice for the upcoming season, Mark Masters of TSN reports.
Analysis: Given Dion Phaneuf's standing as a left-handed puck handler, the move across the ice should actually prove beneficial for the veteran blueliner, whose defensive prowess has slipped as he's aged. In addition to transitioning to the left side, Phaneuf also figures to see more relief with the offseason additions of Roman Polak and Stephane Robidas, who should help preserve the 29-year-old for the rigors of an 82-game season. Even if Phaneuf notices a reduction in minutes, he should still offer 30-to-40 point potential to go along with a bevy of hits, blocks and penalty minutes.

Maple Leafs' Phaneuf (Illness) Tallies Two Points

News: Dion Phaneuf (illness) picked up a goal and an assist Sunday against the Capitals.
Analysis: On the one hand, Dion Phaneuf has five points in his last five games, giving him 29 on the season. On the other hand, he is a minus-6 in those games, although he is still a plus-13 on the year.

Maple Leafs' Phaneuf Dealing With Illness

News: Dion Phaneuf missed Saturday's practice due an illness, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.
Analysis: It's not clear what symptoms Dion Phaneuf is dealing with, but head coach Randy Carlyle would not guarantee that Phaneuf will play in the Maple Leafs' next game Sunday. Expect an update on Phaneuf's status before the first puck is dropped Sunday.

Points Trickling In For Leafs' Phaneuf

News: Dion Phaneuf's first-period power-play goal against the Kings on Thursday helped key a three-score comeback by the Leafs, who ended Los Angeles' eight-game winning streak.
Analysis: He's delivered points in three of his last four games. In his only scoreless game during that span, Tuesday's loss to the Sharks, Dion Phaneuf still managed to pile up 16 penalty minutes to prop up his fantasy value.

Leafs' Phaneuf Sits Friday, Should Play Saturday

News: Dion Phaneuf received a maintenance day Friday, but he is expected to play in Saturday's game against the Flyers, TSN's Jonas Siegel reports.
Analysis: Dion Phaneuf was given Friday off to rest some apparent bumps and bruises, but it appears he will avoid missing any game action so long as he makes it through Saturday's morning skate without issue. Phaneuf has tallied six goals, 18 assists, and 89 PIM in 62 games this season.

Leafs' Phaneuf Back In Game

News: Updating an earlier report, Dion Phaneuf (undisclosed) was able to return to Tuesday's game part-way through the second period. He left the game late in the first period after a hard hit and was not able to start the second period.
Analysis: This is great news for the Leafs and for his fantasy owners. He appears to be skating well and looks to be no worse for wear after that hit.

Leafs' Phaneuf (Undisclosed) Has Not Returned

News: Dion Phaneuf did not return to the ice to start the second period of Tuesday's game because he is still being evaluated in the dressing room, according to a report on Sportsnet Ontario. He left the game late in the first period after absorbing a hard hit.
Analysis: Uh-oh. It just feels as though he'd be back if it was something simple. More when the Leafs release it.

Leafs' Phaneuf: Heads To Dressing Room Early

News: Dion Phaneuf went to the dressing room late in the first period of Tuesday's game after he was hit hard in the corner, reports Sportsnet Ontario.
Analysis: There was only a minute or so left in the period and Dion Phaneuf had sent the puck up the boards. He was turning and didn't see the opposing forward bearing down on him, leaving him awkwardly exposed when the hit came. He immediately left the ice. More when it becomes available.

Leafs' Phaneuf Gets First Goal In 13 Games

News: Dion Phaneuf scored his first goal in 13 games in Saturday's overtime loss to the Jets. It was his fifth of the season.
Analysis: Still, he has three points in his last four games and 21 on the season. His shooting percentage this season is below his established career average, so we may see a slight uptick in that category as it returns to the mean. He won't hit 40 points this season, but he will deliver hits, blocked shots and PIM, too.

Leafs' Phaneuf: Two Assists Extend Point Streak

News: Dion Phaneuf tallied two assists in Wednesday's 3-2 shootout win over Detroit at the Winter Classic. He now has four points (one goal, three assists) on his current three-game streak and five points in his last five games.
Analysis: Is this a boost in production now that that big contract has been finalized and off his mind? Maybe -- his pace so far is one of his worst ever. Regardless, he's a mandatory roll while he's producing like this.

Leafs' Phaneuf Signs Extension

News: Dion Phaneuf agreed to a seven-year, $49 million extension with the Maple Leafs on Tuesday, ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: In 39 games this season with the Maple Leafs, the 10th-year blueliner has a rather disappointing 15 points on four goals and 11 assists. He also has totaled 50 penalty minutes. With this new contract, Dion Phaneuf will likely remain in Toronto for the remainder of his career.

Leafs' Phaneuf: Three Points In Last Four Games

News: Dion Phaneuf scored an empty-net goal Sunday in a win over Carolina. He has three points, including two goals, in his last four games.
Analysis: He's also apparently poised to sign a big, multi-year contract any day now, but it's clearly not weighing on his mind. His scoring pace is well below his usual rate, but he's contributing lots of hits and blocked shots. And that multi-category boost helps him retain his fantasy value, at least in some leagues.

Leafs' Phaneuf Back In Saturday

News: Dion Phaneuf will play Saturday vs. the Blackhawks after he completed his two-game suspension Thursday night.
Analysis: It's just a reminder for fantasy owners to get the star defenseman back into their lineup now that he's served the two-game ban for his illegal hit on the Bruins' Kevan Miller. Dion Phaneuf has 12 points and a plus-12 rating over 31 games on the season.
