News: Paul Ranger (neck) returned to the lineup Tuesday, logging 15:10 of ice time.
Analysis: Although it looked like Paul Ranger could be at risk of missing the rest of the season after he was hospitalized following a hit to the boards Mar. 19, he only missed about two weeks due to the neck injury. Ranger will serve as the team's seventh defenseman most nights now that he's healthy.

News: Paul Ranger (neck) was back practicing with full equipment Monday, David Alter of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.
Analysis: It's certainly encouraging to see after Paul Ranger was briefly hospitalized Wednesday night following a hard hit into the boards in a game against the Lightning. He could be a lineup possibility for Tuesday's game against the Blues.

Leafs' Ranger Misses Friday Practice

News: Paul Ranger (upper body) did not participate in Friday's practice, TSN Radio 1050's Jonas Siegel reports.
Analysis: Paul Ranger had to be stretchered off the ice on Wednesday night, but was discharged from the hospital on Thursday and could be dealing with a concussion. He's iffy at best for the Leafs' back-to-back set this weekend.

Leafs' Ranger Discharged From Hospital

News: Paul Ranger (upper body) was discharged from the hospital Thursday morning, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Analysis: Paul Ranger was deemed to be alert and in stable condition shortly after he was stretchered off the ice Wednesday night, but that doesn't mean he's out of the clear yet. The Leafs haven't offered word on the extent of his injury, but he's undoubtedly dealing with some soreness after crashing into the boards, if not a concussion.

Leafs' Ranger In Stable Condition After Scary Hit

News: The Maple Leafs announced that Paul Ranger is alert and in stable condition after he was hospitalized following a hard hit into the boards in Wednesday's game, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: It's reassuring news after Paul Ranger looked to be seriously injured after the collision. A concussion probably can't be ruled out at this point, but it's good to know that his admission into the hospital was only precautionary.

Leafs' Ranger Carted Off Ice Wednesday

News: Paul Ranger collided head-first with the boards in Wednesday's game vs. the Bolts and was carted off the ice, David Alter of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.
Analysis: With four seconds remaining the period, Paul Ranger suffered the scary collision after taking a cheap shot from the Lightning's Alex Killorn, who was assessed a five-minute major penalty for the incident. Ranger showed movement in his lower extremities while being carted off, but the team should provide a clearer diagnosis of his condition after he's evaluated by medical professionals.

Leafs' Ranger Finds Twine Monday

News: Paul Ranger found the net for his fourth goal of the season in Monday's win over the Ducks.
Analysis: Paul Ranger fired off a surprising three shots in the win over the Ducks, tying his second-highest output of the season. He almost certainly won't be as active offensively in the games to come, but his hit and block numbers should remain relatively stable. He's totaled 10 hits and seven blocks over his last three contests.

Leafs' Ranger Struggling To Find Ice Time

News: Paul Ranger has appeared in just six games since the calendar flipped to 2014.
Analysis: With Tim Gleason assuming a spot in the lineup since he was acquired in January and the Leafs opting not to return Morgan Rielly to the minors, the opportunity to log regular ice time simply hasn't been available for Paul Ranger. It's not like he's made a particularly strong case to earn a consistent role when he's actually on the ice, as he has nine points and a minus-7 rating in 38 games.

Leafs' Ranger Gets Goal

News: Paul Ranger scored a goal in Sunday's win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: He has struggled this year. Earlier reports indicated he had missed time in December because of an injury, but he was actually sent to the press box by coach Randy Carlyle who wasn't happy with his compete. Right now, he's not providing much fantasy value outside of hits (73).

Leafs' Ranger To Play Monday

News: Paul Ranger (upper body) will play Monday against the Rangers, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Analysis: The defenseman has missed the previous five games with an upper-body injury, but he'll draw back in the lineup Monday in favor of John-Michael Liles. Paul Ranger has been only a bit contributor for fantasy owners this year, with seven points and 24 penalty minutes in 30 games this season.

Leafs' Ranger Has Upper-Body Injury

News: Paul Ranger is listed as day-to-day with an upper-body injury, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Analysis: Paul Ranger has played in 30 games on defense for the Maple Leafs this season, totaling seven points on one goal and six assists. He's also added 24 penalty minutes.

Leafs' Ranger Scores First Since 2009

News: Paul Ranger scored a empty-net, shorthanded goal in Wednesday's win over the Flames. It was his first goal since Oct. 10, 2009.
Analysis: He has four points in his last seven games and he finally looks like he's starting to fit back into NHL life. He's not going to deliver you a lot of points, but he'll chip in some hits to help you along the way.

Leafs' Ranger Scores Empty-Netter In Win

News: Paul Ranger scored an empty-net goal in Wednesday's win over the Flames.
Analysis: Though Paul Ranger's first goal of the season wasn't particularly hard-fought, it goes down in the scorebook as a short-hander, giving him an added boost in leagues that count special teams scores. Ranger will continue to see upwards of 20 minutes of ice time per game but offers most of his utility near the blue line and away from the opposing goal.

Paul Ranger, D, TOR Leafs' Ranger Struggling So Far

Paul Ranger

Leafs' Ranger Struggling So Far

News: Paul Ranger has struggled in his first four games of the season, but has remained in the lineup.
Analysis: He's a great story, but it's taking him longer to get up to NHL speed than fans had hoped. He probably should take a seat for a game, but cap constraints will likely keep him in the lineup. Wait until you see some stability and some production before you make a move for him.

Leafs Sign Ranger

News: The Maple Leafs signed Paul Ranger to a one-year, $1 million deal on Wednesday, the Toronto Star reports.
Analysis: Paul Ranger played for the AHL's Toronto Marlies last season after taking time off from hockey due to personal reasons from 2010-2012. Ranger scored eight goals and totaled 17 assists in 51 games with the Marlies last season, and should provide additional blue line depth for the Leafs this upcoming season.

AHLer Ranger Concussed

News: Paul Ranger hasn't played with the AHL Toronto Marlies since Jan. 13 after suffering a head injury, according to the print edition of the Toronto Sun.
Analysis: He'd been on a major roll -- 12 points in the 12 games leading into that point -- with the possibility of an invite to the Leafs' camp. There is no update on his status; the paper suggests he's been staying away from the team.

FA Defender Ranger: Content In AHL?

News: Paul Ranger may choose to stay in the AHL rather than attend an NHL training camp, reports Elliotte Freedman of CBC.ca. "Everyone wants to make sure that from Paul's side and our side that he's fully ready to make the next step," said Toronto Marlies' coach Dallas Eakins. "He's so early into this that there's no timeline on a return for him."
Analysis: Paul Ranger left the Lightning in 2009-10 after playing just eight games that year and didn't return to pro hockey until this season. There would be plenty of NHL suitors, including the Leafs, for this talented defender. "Ranger has played very, very well," continued Eakins. Ranger's agent, Joe Resnick, isn't saying one way or the other, and a few people thing this stall is just a negotiating tactic. But there is a chance Ranger just beats to a different drummer and is enjoying his season in the AHL. This is worth following -- he could be a top-four defender on whole lot of teams.

Will Leafs Give Ranger Another Chance At NHL?

News: Paul Ranger, who picked up a goal in Saturday's win over Rockford and now has points in seven of his last eight games, stands a good chance at making the Maple Leafs this season. He hasn't played in the NHL since 2009-10 when he played just eight games for the Tampa Bay Lightning and he returned to pro hockey with the Marlies this season.
Analysis: Paul Ranger has all the earmarks of a top-four defender even after missing all of that time. He was promoted to the power play with Jake Gardiner sidelined and he has been exceptional there. He's big (6-3, 210), skates well and is an absolutely brilliant passer. Gardiner, an NHL regular, is still on the sidelines so Ranger could have a ticket to the Air Canada Centre in a week or so. He'll produce, too -- steal him in a late round.

Ranger Completes Comeback; Makes AHL Toronto Marlies

News: Paul Ranger has made the opening night roster of the Toronto Marlies, according to the team's official site.
Analysis: What a comeback for a guy who'd been out of hockey for two years. He'll probably hit the wall at some point -- AHL schedules are tough. But this is a great story and one worth watching when the Leafs finally hit the ice. Who knows where Paul Ranger might be by season's end.

Ranger Impresses Toronto AHL Coach

News: Paul Ranger, who has been away from hockey for two years, impressed at the first day of the Toronto Marlies' training camp, reports the Toronto Star.
Analysis: "Early on, he looks extremely strong," said coach Dallas Eakins, who was impressed with Paul Ranger's efforts during the fitness tests. Ranger has what his former Tampa Bay coach John Tortorella described as one of the best outlet passes in pro hockey. It will be interesting to see if he can regain that form -- we might just see him back in an NHL uniform in a few years if that's the case.
