Taylor Leier has gone 14 games without a goal.

The fourth line forward has only one goal and five points in 34 games but has been used as a bottom-six forward and that can't help. He is starting to get some second line power play time. The speedy forward is stuck presently with two slow-moving linemates as Jori Lehtera and Valtteri Filppula can't keep up with him. He is not worth considering yet but could provide some scoring in the future.
