Ho hum, another injury for Loops, who had stretched to try to catch a puck out of mid-air, but missed and ended up under burly winger Milan Lucic land on him. He had missed most of November due to a broken hand and hasn't actually played a full season since 2006-07. Reserve him.

Lupul scored a goal Monday night to extend his current point streak to two games and three points. He has five points (two goals, three assists) in his last five games.

He has nine goals and eight assists in 25 games this season and Monday, he saw time on the top line with Tyler Bozak and Phil Kessel. It's unlikely that plum assignment will continue -- it didn't produce a win against Tampa on Monday.

Lupul finished with two assists in Sunday's loss to Florida. He also delivered six hits.

He earned the game's third star for his work and has four points in his last four games. It's important to note that one of the assists came on a sweet feed to Nazem Kadri on a three-on-two rush -- those two haven't shown much chemistry, so that's a great sign ... if it's for real. Use him if plus-minus isn't a worry for you. He's minus-five over his last five games.

Lupul registered a goal and assist in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Flyers.

Lupul was the beneficiary of coach Randy Carlyle's decision to reshuffle his top-six forwards, as the winger replaced James van Riemsdyk on the Tyler Bozak/Phil Kessel line. The move proved fruitful right away, as Lupul notched his eighth goal of the season in the first five minutes of the first period on a secondary assist by Kessel. Lupul's stock had already been on the rise during a month of December in which he's recorded nine points in 10 games, and the prospect of him sticking with Bozak and Kessel only makes him more intriguing.

Lupul tallied a pair of goals in Tuesday's win over the Stars.

That's back-to-back two-point games for Lupul, who has typically been a useful secondary scorer for the Leafs when he hasn't been banged up. Now that he seems fully recovered from a broken hand that cost him 12 games, Lupul could be worth a speculative add in mid-sized or deeper formats.

Lupul delivered two power-play points -- a goal and an assist -- in Saturday's win over the Capitals.

Lupul (hand) was taken off injured reserve in preparation for his return Wednesday versus the Penguins, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports.

The broken hand cost Lupul approximately four weeks, but lengthy absences aren't new for the forward at this stage of his injury-riddled career. Though his track record suggests he'll miss time later on this season due to another injury, Lupul has been a productive player when he's been able to suit up. He collected two goals in his first nine games this season before suffering the broken hand.
