Daniel Winnik has inked a one-year, $1.3 million deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Winnik had six goals and 30 points in 76 games in 2013-14 and shouldn't be penciled in to surpass those totals next season, so he obviously won't be a factor in standard fantasy leagues. Still, he'll be a fine addition to the Leafs' third line. Jul 28 - 2:42 PM

Daniel Winnik will be permitted to test unrestricted free agency.

Daniel Winnik will get back into the lineup for the Ducks on Saturday night.

Matt Beleskey is out with a lower-body injury, so Winnik will make his sixth appearance of the postseason. He doesn't have a point yet and has been credited with seven shots.

Daniel Winnik was a healthy scratch in Game 1.

He was joined on the sidelines by his linemate Kyle Palmieri as the Ducks went with Devante Smith-Pelly and Emerson Etem. Etem and Smith-Pelly joined Nick Bonino on the fourth unit and managed 10 shots on goal so it may be tough for Winnik and Palmieri to get back in the lineup for Game 2. "I think Palmieri and Winnik and Rakell, for that matter, would not hurt our team one iota, if were in there," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "They were regulars, at least the two of them, for the whole year. Just right now, with this series, I think, the bigger bodied guys, and the more physical guys, are what we need."

Daniel Winnik scored the winning goal on a shorthanded breakaway 6:26 into the first period in Anaheim's 3-0 win over Vancouver Monday night.

Winnik has been solid lately with five points in his last five games. He now has nine goals with 23 assists in 73 games this season. Kyle Palmieri and Matt Beleskey also scored for the Ducks.
Apr 8 - 2:55 AM

The Ducks snapped a four-game losing streak Friday night.

After giving up a season-worst seven goals two nights earlier, Anaheim scored a franchise-record six goals in the second period in a 6-4 win against the Avalanche, the first of which was socred by Daniel Winnik. "It seemed to get everyone going," Winnik said. "It was desperation."

Daniel Winnik scored a goal in Anaheim's 4-3 shootout loss to Montreal Wednesday night.

Winnik now has three goals and 20 assists in 59 games this season. Defenseman Francois Beauchemin and Tim Jackman also scored for the Ducks.
Mar 6 - 3:54 AM

Daniel Winnik could center the fourth line on Sunday after spending most of the season as a third line winger.

The move may be needed as usual center Mathieu Perreault will likely miss the game on Sunday with an apparent arm injury. Winnik has only two goals and 20 assists this season but he has a goal and two assists while the Ducks have been shorthanded so he has value if you use that category.
Mar 2 - 6:06 AM

Daniel Winnik had two assists in the Ducks' 3-2 overtime win on Saturday.

Winnik's been hot lately with nine points in his last nine games. That gives him a goal and 18 points in 40 games, putting him on course to comfortably surpass his career-high of 26 points. He's a decent short-term option in standard leagues while he's hot, but we can't recommend picking him up as a more long-term solution.

Daniel Winnik is battling the flu.

Winnik missed Friday's practice as a result, although he might turn out to be fine for Sunday's game. He has a goal and 14 points in 34 games this season.

Daniel Winnik had three assists in Anaheim's 5-2 win Monday.

Monday's contest aside, Winnik doesn't typically have much fantasy value in standard leagues. He has a goal and 13 points in 33 contests in 2013-14.

Daniel Winnik (illness) was able to play on Thursday.

Daniel Winnik is dealing with an illness.

Winnik missed Wednesday's practice as a result. Consider him questionable for Thursday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Anaheim Ducks are experimenting with using Daniel Winnik as a center.

"Well, the upside of it is many-fold," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "One is that if he goes back to wing, we know now in a pinch he can play center. It's not just like throwing him in cold. He knows the system. We have the faith in him that he can do it." Regardless of what position Winnik plays, he will almost certainly serve as a bottom-six forward. He isn't expected to have much fantasy value in standard leagues.
