David Clarkson RW TOR 6 Days

Clarkson potted his 10th goal of the season in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Senators. He finished the night with five hits and four shots on goal over 17:09 of ice time.

It's just the second goal in 20 games for Clarkson, who still looks like one of the worst NHL free-agent signings in recent memory. Though a dependable source for hits and PIM, the winger has produced just 25 points and a minus-23 rating over his 108 games with the Leafs. After the 2014-15 season, he'll still have five years remaining on his contract with an annual cap hit of $5.25 million.

Clarkson had his first multi-point game with the Leafs in Saturday's win over the Canucks. He scored a goal and added an assist.

He now has eight goals and two assists in 26 games and is one point shy of his season total of 11 from last season (60 games). We'd like to see his plus-minus improve, but maybe that's too much to ask for a guy with only one season on the positive side of the ledger. At this pace, he might actually score 25 goals this year. There's plenty of room for that on fantasy rosters.

Clarkson scored his sixth goal of the season in Thursday's win over the Lightning. It came in his 20th game of the season, a pace that would see him come close to 25 goals this year.

Remarkably, it's one more than he scored in 60 games last season with the Buds. He'll never have a season like he did in New Jersey in 2011-12, but he's really playing solid hockey right now. He has two goals in his last three games and three in his last six.

Clarkson scored his fourth goal of the season in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Senators.

He has three goals in his last nine games and five points overall (four goals, one assist) in 15 games. That's a 20-plus goal pace. Not bad for a third-line guy.

Clarkson scored his second goal of the season in Tuesday's win over the Islanders.

He's already had a better season this year than he had all of last year. He's engaged and creating havoc, and his line has been the most consistent Leaf line this season. He has three points and 17 hits in seven games this season and is on pace to return to fantasy relevance in leagues where hits reign supreme.

Clarkson notched his first goal of the season in Sunday's win over the Rangers.

Last year, it took him until November 19 to get his first goal. He has looked a whole lot better in just three games this year than he ever did all last season. His fantasy value may just be on the rebound. Get in now before others realize he's on the rise.

Clarkson (fractured orbital bone) was on the ice for morning skate and should play Wednesday against the Canadiens, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.

Clarkson will be looking to rebound after a dismal debut season in Toronto, during which injuries and a lengthy suspension limited him to 11 points in 60 games. He'll open 2014-15 on the third line for the Leafs, joining Leo Komarov and Mike Santorelli.

Clarkson (orbital bone) could slot onto the third line this season, suggests Jonas Siegel of Toronto's TSN1050. He may not have shown enough this preseason -- injury aside -- to warrant a top-six role.

It's Groundhog Day not only because of the stupid injury, but also because his approach to the game is eerily similar to last season. His fit in Toronto wasn't great last year and we're not sure if it's all that great this year.

Clarkson (fractured orbital bone) was on the ice at practice Thursday wearing a full cage, according to CTV Barrie. He skated for about 35 minutes.

He was trying to get used to the full cage, which might take some time. Hopefully, he doesn't miss time -- we'll know more when he starts taking hits.

Clarkson has a fractured orbital bone, but isn't expected to miss any time, David Alter of Sportsnet reports.

Clarkson injured his face during a preseason fight, but the fractured bone won't require surgery, and the team expects to have the winger back Friday. Clarkson recorded five goals, six assists, and 93 PIM in 60 games last season.
