Leafs' Clarkson Snaps Home Sixth Goal Of Season

News: David Clarkson scored his sixth goal of the season in Thursday's win over the Lightning. It came in his 20th game of the season, a pace that would see him come close to 25 goals this year.
Analysis: Remarkably, it's one more than he scored in 60 games last season with the Buds. He'll never have a season like he did in New Jersey in 2011-12, but he's really playing solid hockey right now. He has two goals in his last three games and three in his last six.

Leafs' Clarkson On 20-Goal Pace

News: David Clarkson scored his fourth goal of the season in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Senators.
Analysis: He has three goals in his last nine games and five points overall (four goals, one assist) in 15 games. That's a 20-plus goal pace. Not bad for a third-line guy.

Leafs' Clarkson: Rebound Season?

News: David Clarkson scored his second goal of the season in Tuesday's win over the Islanders.
Analysis: He's already had a better season this year than he had all of last year. He's engaged and creating havoc, and his line has been the most consistent Leaf line this season. He has three points and 17 hits in seven games this season and is on pace to return to fantasy relevance in leagues where hits reign supreme.

Leafs' Clarkson: Game Improving?

News: David Clarkson notched his first goal of the season in Sunday's win over the Rangers.
Analysis: Last year, it took him until November 19 to get his first goal. He has looked a whole lot better in just three games this year than he ever did all last season. His fantasy value may just be on the rebound. Get in now before others realize he's on the rise.

Leafs' Clarkson Set To Play Wednesday

News: David Clarkson (fractured orbital bone) was on the ice for morning skate and should play Wednesday against the Canadiens, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Analysis: David Clarkson will be looking to rebound after a dismal debut season in Toronto, during which injuries and a lengthy suspension limited him to 11 points in 60 games. He'll open 2014-15 on the third line for the Leafs, joining Leo Komarov and Mike Santorelli.

Leafs' Clarkson (Face) Destined For Third Line?

News: David Clarkson (orbital bone) could slot onto the third line this season, suggests Jonas Siegel of Toronto's TSN1050. He may not have shown enough this preseason -- injury aside -- to warrant a top-six role.
Analysis: It's Groundhog Day not only because of the stupid injury, but also because his approach to the game is eerily similar to last season. His fit in Toronto wasn't great last year and we're not sure if it's all that great this year.

Leafs Clarkson (Face): Back On Ice

News: David Clarkson (fractured orbital bone) was on the ice at practice Thursday wearing a full cage, according to CTV Barrie. He skated for about 35 minutes.
Analysis: He was trying to get used to the full cage, which might take some time. Hopefully, he doesn't miss time -- we'll know more when he starts taking hits.

Leafs' Clarkson Expected Back Friday

News: David Clarkson has a fractured orbital bone, but isn't expected to miss any time, David Alter of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: David Clarkson injured his face during a preseason fight, but the fractured bone won't require surgery, and the team expects to have the winger back Friday. Clarkson recorded five goals, six assists, and 93 PIM in 60 games last season.

Leafs Send Clarkson (Face) To Specialist

News: David Clarkson didn't practice Saturday and was slated to see a specialist about the extent of the injury to his right cheekbone that he suffered in a fight Friday night, reports TSN.ca. He was injured in a fight with Cody McCormick of the Sabres.
Analysis: Wow. He was derailed last season by a pointless preseason fight; let's hope that's not the case this time around, too. He desperately needs to get his Leafs career back on track.

Leafs' Clarkson Leaves Game As Precaution

News: David Clarkson left Friday's game against the Sabres for precautionary reasons after a fight two minutes into the third period, according to a report on Toronto's Sportsnet 590TheFAN. He had scored a goal earlier in the game.
Analysis: He made his preseason debut Friday after missing time due to a lower-body injury. It is unknown if the precautionary reasons are related to this injury.

Leafs' Clarkson Expects To Play Friday

News: David Clarkson (lower body) expects to make his preseason debut Friday, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.
Analysis: David Clarkson has been considered day-to-day for most of training camp, and just recently began skating with his team. If he's ready to participate in preseason games, expect Clarkson to be ready to go when the regular season starts.

Leafs' Clarkson Skates

News: David Clarkson (lower body) participated in Monday's morning skate, Jonas Siegel of TSN 1050 reports.
Analysis: David Clarkson won't play in Monday's pre-season game, but it's a good sign that he's back on the ice. At this point, it doesn't look like his lower body injury will limit him during the regular season at all.

Leafs' Clarkson Dealing With Lower-Body Injury

News: David Clarkson is dealing with a lower-body injury, Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun reports.
Analysis: David Clarkson joined Tyler Bozak as the two out for the practice, with both reportedly dealing with lower-body injuries. They both ocurred during pre-camp workouts, and coach Randy Carlyle believes the injury to Clarkson is minor.

Leafs' Clarkson On Ice Before Practice

News: David Clarkson (undisclosed) was on the ice in full equipment on Saturday morning before the rest of the team hit the ice for training camp, reports Toronto's Sportsnet 590TheFAN.
Analysis: He and Tyler Bozak -- the team's other guy who's "out" with an undisclosed issue -- were out there together; both were in full equipment. His issue remains day-to-day, so don't start worrying yet. But we hope his time on the sidelines doesn't last too long for David Clarkson -- he needs to get into a groove to start this season in order to erase memories of his start last year.

Leafs' Clarkson Injured, Misses First Day Of Camp

News: David Clarkson missed the first day of Leafs' training camp with an undisclosed injury, according to Sportsnet 590TheFAN.
Analysis: There was no word of the type of injury, but it is considered day-to-day.

Leafs' Clarkson Working On Fundamentals

News: David Clarkson is in Florida working out with Sidney Crosby, Matt Duchene and Nathan MacKinnon, all guided by trainer Matt Belfry, according to the New York Times.
Analysis: The workouts have been likened to a hockey school of sorts, where players focus on fundamentals and individual skill work. David Clarkson is clearly committed to doing whatever is needed to start again in Toronto, but we'll see how it translates into game action come September and October.

Leafs' Clarkson Looking Ahead To Better 2014-15

News: David Clarkson is "looking forward to what's ahead" after a horrible start to his career as a Maple Leaf. "It's tough to go through that, when your first impression or start is that," he told Sportsnet. "But that's all behind me. Everything's behind me, and I'm looking forward to what's ahead."
Analysis: We should hope it's behind him. The dude had more fights (nine) than goals (five) and more games missed because of suspension (12) than points (11). Yes, it was that bad. His fantasy value is going to be tied to the potential for power-play time. And in Toronto, that's far from a guarantee. #badfit.

Leafs' Clarkson Snaps Lengthy Goalless Skid

News: David Clarkson tallied his first goal since Feb. 4 in Tuesday's win over the Flames.
Analysis: David Clarkson's goal, just his fifth of the season, held up as the game-winner in the 3-2 victory. The 30-year-old already looks like a bust one season into his seven-year pact with the Leafs, and doesn't figure to remain with the team for the life of the deal.

Leafs' Clarkson Returning Monday

News: David Clarkson (leg) is likely back in the lineup for Monday's game against the Anaheim Ducks, TSN's Jonas Siegel reports.
Analysis: David Clarkson missed just one game with the injury, which he suffered during Friday's practice. Fantasy owners can use him as they normally would.

Leafs Will Sit Clarkson On Saturday

News: David Clarkson (leg) will not play Saturday vs. the Bruins, David Alter of 590 Sportsnet The Fan reports.
Analysis: Saturday's call-up of Frazer McLaren already seemed to provide an early indication that David Clarkson wouldn't be playing against Boston. He's considered day-to-day with the leg injury, which he first sustained during Friday's practice and was then forced to depart early during Saturday's morning skate.

Leafs' Clarkson Leaves Saturday Morning Skate

News: David Clarkson left Saturday's morning skate due to a leg issue, TSN's Jonas Siegel reports.
Analysis: David Clarkson seemed to injure his leg towards the end of practice Friday, so apparently the issue could be more serious than originally perceived. They are calling it a muscle pull, so consider him day-to-day and questionable for Saturday's game.

Leafs' Clarkson Destined For Second Line?

News: David Clarkson stayed in Toronto during the Olympic break to work out instead of taking a vacation in the sun, and said he feels the healthiest he has all year, according to the Toronto Star.
Analysis: His coach, Randy Carlyle, was pleased with David Clarkson's decision to stay home and work out. He's rolling Clarkson on the second line with Joffrey Lupul and Nazem Kadri, and that's a huge fantasy upgrade for Clarkson if he sticks there. Watch this carefully and be ready to take advantage.

Leafs' Clarkson (Elbow): Goal In Injury Return

News: David Clarkson scored his fourth goal of the season in Tuesday's loss to Florida. He also had seven hits and a minor penalty.
Analysis: It was his first game back from an elbow problem that kept him out two-and-a-half weeks. The minor penalty was ill-timed as the Panthers opened the scoring on the resulting power play. Get him back in there if you use him.

Leafs' Clarkson Takes Line Rushes Tuesday

News: David Clarkson took part in line rushes before Tuesday's game and should be in the lineup against Florida, according to Sportsnet Ontario.
Analysis: Don't expect him to make a big splash as he'll be on the third or fourth line. But feel free to activate him if you use him with any regularity.

Leafs' Clarkson Activated From IR

News: David Clarkson (elbow) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday, Damien Cox of the Toronto Sun reports.
Analysis: With coach Randy Carlyle declaring David Clarkson ready to play following Tuesday's morning skate, his activation suggests that he'll likely be included in the lineup for the game against the Panthers. Carter Ashton (hand) was placed on IR in a corresponding move.
