The Leafs are in Panik-mode, meaning in addition to losing 21 of their past 25 games, Richard Panik has seen increased ice time.

This increased role does not pad his fantasy value in any way, playing on the offensively inept Leafs.

Richard Panik may be promoted from the fourth to the third line for the Maple Leafs' game against the Panthers Sunday evening.

He practised on Saturday with Peter Holland and David Clarkson which is one step up from the fourth unit and two steps up from the press box, where Panik has spent the much of his time as of late. That still doens't make Panik rosterable, though.

Richard Panik notched an assist and a late goal to help send Thursday night's game to overtime.

Though the Leafs would go on to lose in a shootout 4-3. Panik's assist is a classic hockey assist in that, upon review, he wasn't that instrumental to the goal. However, his goal was a beauty as he got himself into position for the one-timer amidst tight traffic. Along with the points he had two hits and blocks.
