Korbinian Holzer will be held out of the lineup again Wednesday night in Anaheim.

The German defenseman will miss his fourth consecutive game Wednesday as he will watch from the press box again. In 16 games played this season, Holzer has four assists, 21 penalty minutes, and is a plus four. He has no fantasy value right now.

Korbinian Holzer and Sam Carrick will both be healthy scratches on Monday night.

The Leafs are in Los Angeles and neither of these two players will suit up. Holzer has been a healthy scratch in three straight games. Carrick has no points in six games for Toronto this season. Neither player shows up on the fantasy radar.

Korbinian Holzer and Sam Carrick will be sitting in the stands Friday night against Columubs.

While Carrick has been exciting for the AHL Toronto Marlies this season, posting 16 points through 31 games, it's not quite his time just yet. Keep an eye on him, though. Holzer for his part has 21 PIMs, 30 blocks, and 64 hits through just 16 games with the Leafs so far.
Jan 9 - 7:11 PM

Korbinian Holzer was made a late healthy scratch against the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night.

Holzer had played in the previous four games, averaging just under 20 minutes a night and without recording any points.
Jan 7 - 7:14 PM

Korbinian Holzer will be on the blue line for the Leafs Monday night against the Lightning.

Holzer has been in the press box for the Leafs last two games but will get back in the lineup Monday night. Stephane Robidas will be a healthy scratch to make room for Holzer. The Leafs have now held Robidas out of the second game of the last two back-to-backs, so this may be a more common trend going forward leading to more ice time for Holzer.

With Stephane Robidas returning to the lineup on Tuesday, Korbinian Holzer will take a seat as a healthy scratch.

Holzer has been playing well of late, collecting four helpers in his last five games. Look for him to be a steady replacement should another Leaf get injured, sick, or draw the ire of Coach Carlyle.

Korbinian Holzer collected an assist in Toronto's 7-4 loss to Philadelphia on Saturday.

Holzer was a healthy scratch in Toronto's last game against Carolina, but he now has at least one point in four consecutive games. Holzer was paired with Morgan Rielly on Saturday, and the experiment didn't go as planned. The two struggled throughout the night.

Korbinian Holzer will be a healthy scratch Saturday night against the Flyers.

The young defender has only found his way into the lineup 10 times this season, netting just three points (all assists), with 17 PIMs, 20 blocks, and 49 hits.

Korbinian Holzer has to clear waivers to rejoin the Toronto Marlies of the AHL and it's unlikely the Leafs will send him down when Roman Polak is ready to return.

Polak could be back at some this week and Toronto will probably carry seven defensemen once he's available. Holzer has racked up 42 hits and 18 blocks in nine appearances with the Leafs this season. He's also chipped in two assists in his past two games.

Toronto defenseman Korbinian Holzer notched a game-high six hits in the Maple Leafs' 2-1 shootout win over the Red Wings in Detroit Wednesday night.

We mention this because there's a possibility that Holzer may not be owned in your fantasy league and perhaps he's worth picking up.

Korbinian Holzer took an unintentional swing at a linesman in Saturday's win over Washington.

Holzer got into a scrap with Capitals' forward Tom Wilson. The Caps' tough guy pulled Holzer's jersey over his face when the Leafs' defenseman threw a blind punch, hitting the referee. "I had my jersey over my face, and all I felt is that guy (Wilson) still throwing punches," said Holzer. "I threw a punch and obviously I hit the linesman. I’m really sorry for that and I hope he’s okay."

Korbinian Holzer has been summoned from the minors.

Toronto was in need of a defenseman after Roman Polak, who could be out for a while, was injured on Saturday night. Holzer has two assists and 10 penalty minutes in nine games with the Marlies this year.

The Toronto Maple Leafs sent defenseman Korbinian Holzer back to the AHL after calling him up for Saturday night.

JFYI as he's a depth defenseman in real-life terms. Holzer, 26, has three points in 24 career NHL games.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 11:42:00 AM

The Toronto Maple Leafs have recalled Korbinian Holzer from the Toronto Marlies on an emergency basis.

The 26-year-old has played in seven games for the Marlies, registering one assist and six penalty minutes. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues. There is still no word on why the Leafs were forced to make this roster move.
