Milan Michalek has been placed on waivers by the Toronto Maple Leafs.

This corresponds with Toronto claiming Ben Smith off of waivers from Colorado. Michalek has a goal and an assist in five games this season. He's in the final season of a three-year, $12 million deal, so it would be a little surprising to see a team willing to take that cap hit at this time.

Milan Michalek scored a pair of goals in Thursday's 4-3 win over Team USA.

The game was meaningless for both sides, but at least the Czechs can go out on a high note. Michalek's brother, Zbynek, opened the scoring in the first period, while Milan gave the Czechs 2-1 and 4-2 leads in the second period. Milan finished the tournament with three points in three games.

Milan Michalek feels 100 percent after finishing the 2015-16 season with a knee injury.

He skated in 13 matches with the Leafs after he was acquired from the Senators in the Dion Phaneuf trade. "It'll be different. At least I got to play some games and I know the system now. I know the coaches. I know what they want, and I got to know some guys too," Michalek said. "That's going to help me a lot and be comfortable for training camp." He produced 16 points in 45 games with Ottawa and Toronto last campaign. Michalek will be expected to provide some leadership for a young squad in 2016-17.

Milan Michalek will miss the rest of the season due to a knee injury.

Michalek sustained the injury in Thursday's loss to Buffalo. He posted one goal and six points in 13 games with the Leafs after coming over from Ottawa in the Dion Phaneuf trade. If you have not already done so, cut Michalek and find someone else to take his spot.

Milan Michalek (finger) is slated to make his Toronto debut on Monday night.

The Maple Leafs are terming Milan Michalek (finger) as week-to-week.

Michalek was one of the players acquired by Toronto in the Dion Phaneuf trade, but he hasn't played since Jan. 22. Although obviously a team would typically want to utilize a newly acquired player, the reality is that the Maple Leafs won't make the playoffs and have more to gain by losing at this point than winning. Consequently, Toronto has no reason to try to rush Michalek back before he's 100%.
