Daniel Winnik will miss Saturday match with Boston and Rich Clune takes his place.

No word yet on the reasoning, but the game just got a lot more interesting if nothing else. The hometown boy Winnik has posted just 11 points and not much else through 39 games of his second tour of duty with Toronto.
Jan 16 - 6:45 PM

Daniel Winnik earned a pair of assists in Toronto's 5-4 OT loss against San Jose on Thursday night.

He has three points in his last two outings to give him a total of 11 on the year. Winnik shouldn't be on your fantasy radar in standard leagues, but he is decent two-way player.

Daniel Winnik will get back into the lineup on Monday.

He will replace injured winger Joffrey Lupul when Toronto hosts Edmonton. Winnik has been scratched for the past two games. He feels like he returned too soon from a lower-body injury, but he's ready to compete again now.

Forward Daniel Winnik and defenseman Frank Corrado will be the likely scratches against the Capitals Saturday night.

It looks as if Martin Marincin will draw back in due to the demotion of Scott Harrington. None of these roster moves will have any fantasy impact.

Daniel Winnik will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the Boston Bruins.

The 30-year-old has two goals, seven points and a plus-4 rating in 20 games this season. Frank Corrado and Martin Marincin will also watch the game from the press box.

Daniel Winnik returned to Toronto's lineup Thursday.

He sat out Tuesday's game with a lower-body injury, but was back in the fold quickly. Winnik had two shots in 12:39 of ice time against Nashville.

Daniel Winnik will be replaced by Peter Hollan in Tuesday's tilt with Dallas.

Winnik has had a nice season so far for his hometown team, posting six points, 12 blocks, and 14 hits in 14 games. Holland just two points in nine games, with little else to show for his efforts. Neither are recommendable fantasy options.

Daniel Winnik (lower body) skated Monday and will travel with the team to Dallas.

Still, he is considered doubtful to play Tuesday night versus the Stars. Winnik suffered a lower-body injury on Saturday after he scored his second goal of the season.

Daniel Winnik left Saturday's game in the first period with a lower body injury.

It appeared that Winnik injured his foot or ankle but we are sure that further information will be available shortly. Winnik opened the scoring before the injury as he stole the puck from Alex Ovechkin at the Toronto blueline, came in and wristed a shot past Braden Holtby.

Toronto native Daniel Winnik has re-signed with the Maple Leafs for one-year, $2.25M.

That's a nice step up in pay from the one-year, $1.3M deal he signed with Toronto last summer. The Leafs sent Winnik to Pittsburgh in a deadline-deal for Zack Sill, a 2015 fourth round pick, and a 2016 second round pick. The latter was sent back to Pittsburgh in the Phil Kessel deal. Winnik had a career-season in 2014-15, tallying nine goals and 34 points.

Daniel Winnik is projected to begin the postseason alongside Sidney Crosby and Patric Hornqvist.

He produced two goals and nine points in 21 games with the Penguins after he was obtained from Toronto.

Daniel Winnik has been skating alongside Sidney Crosby and David Perron.

He has produced a goal and an assist in his last two games. "I just have to play my game," Winnik said. "Quick on pucks and be strong on it down low, create space for them when I can. It's about winning one-on-one battles, especially board battles." He has five points in 12 games since joining the Penguins from Toronto.

With 10 points, Daniel Winnik was the Toronto Maple Leafs' leading scorer of the Peter Horachek era in terms of five-on-five situations.

And yes, Toronto did trade Winnik to Pittsburgh on Feb. 25. That's how sad Horachek's 34-game stint with the Toronto Maple Leafs has been. With that in mind, it's really hard to properly judge any Maple Leafs player's potential fantasy value for the 2015-16 campaign based on what they've done in 2014-15. There will be roster changes, but Horachek will almost certainly be gone too and whoever replaces him will likely restore some degree of normalcy to the Maple Leafs' offense.

Daniel Winnik was impressive in his first practice with the Penguins and will make his debut on Sunday.

Winnik will play alongside Steve Downie and Brandon Sutter. "It's only one practice," Sutter said. "But you can just kind of tell that Winnik's a smart guy, that he'll be able to adjust pretty quickly. Hopefully chemistry will come." Winnik was with Toronto this season and had seven goals and 25 points in 58 games. He is not worth picking up at this time in anything but the deepest of pools but he was a plus-15 with the lowly Leafs.
