Should Greening make his way through waivers, Toronto will only receive $950K in cap relief which will leave $1.7M on the docket. The 30-year-old winger has seen just 57 games worth of NHL action the last two season and is in the final year of his contract.

Colin Greening scored his first goal as a Maple Leaf in Toronto's 4-2 loss to the Rangers on Thursday night.

Colin Greening led all Toronto forwards in ice time (17:08) on Monday against Chicago.

He was credited with six hits and picked up his first point in three games with the Maple Leafs when he assisted on a goal by Mark Arcobello. "Based on the first couple of games, I've been put in good situations and I think I've played pretty well," said Greening. "I hope I can keep that consistency." He is getting a chance to play after being acquired from Ottawa in the Dion Phaneuf trade because of injuries.

Colin Greening is practicing with the Maple Leafs on Wednesday.

He is in the NHL on an emergency recall after he was acquired from Ottawa in the Dion Phaneuf trade on Tuesday. Greening has played most of the 2015-16 season in the AHL, but he may get a chance with the Leafs because of the team's injury problems up front.

Colin Greening won't play in Tuesday's match with the Flyers.

Greening hasn't dressed for the Senators since March, so don't expect that to change unless a bottom-six forward is suspended, sick, and injured.

Colin Greening and Mike Kostka will be scratched against the Coyotes on Saturday night.

Unfortunately there isn't much fantasy value to speak of for this pair of 29-year-olds. Kostka is a career tweener, and Greening's time in Ottawa will come to an end just as soon as they find the right deal for him or they'll continue to bury him in AHL Binghamton.

Colin Greening and Mike Kostka will be scratched against the Stars on Tuesday night.

The pair of 29-year-olds have yet to dress for Ottawa this season, and are only up as extra bodies should someone go down or fall ill. Greening has posted nine points in 13 games for AHL Binghamton, while Kostka has six points. Neither have any potential fantasy value, unfortunately.
