McLeod missed the last two games as a healthy scratch.

EDGE Analysis

It's not unusual to see McLeod watching from the sidelines, as he played in just 59 combined games for the Avs and Preds last season. This year, he has just a single assist in eight games, averaging just 6:07 in ice time. McLeod is usually good for a few penalty minutes here and there -- he has 31 PIM to his credit so far this year -- but otherwise, he doesn't move the fantasy needle and should be avoided in most formats.

McLeod collected his first point of the season Thursday against the Stars, assisting on rookie defenseman Samuel Girard's first career goal.

EDGE Analysis

The rough-and-ready McLeod also chipped in five penalty minutes, bringing his season total to 29, good for second in the league. McLeod won't give you much in the traditional stat categories -- given that he typically sees fewer than 10 minutes of ice time per game -- but if your league puts a premium on PIM and hits, McLeod may be of some use to you.

McLeod is expected to warm the bench during Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals matchup with Pittsburgh on Saturday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

PA Parenteau told reporters early Saturday that he'll be tagging in for Nashville's first home game of the Cup finals, and that leaves McLeod as the odd man out. Simply put, the Predators desperately need to put goals on the board to climb out of this 2-0 series deficit, hence the switch from McLeod -- a gritty checking specialist -- to Parenteau, a ninth-year journeyman who has proven capable of putting the puck into the net.

McLeod (lower body) is probable for Thursday's tilt with Montreal, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

EDGE Analysis

The physical winger landed on injured reserve on Feb. 12 and missed out on the Preds' last eight games, but was a full-participant in Thursday's morning skate, taking rushes on the fourth line. A one-time 15-goal scorer in 2008-09, McLeod has failed to reach a double-digit goal tally in each season since and has just three goals in 13 games this campaign.

McLeod has been placed on injured reserve due to a lower-body injury, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear when exactly McLeod sustained this injury, but he'll head to IR going into Nashville's bye week. The timetable for his return is unclear at this point, but even if he does not return immediately once the Preds come back from the bye, he's not likely to missed by the majority of fantasy owners -- his 8:02 of average ice time has translated into just four points this season.

McLeod scored his third goal of the season during Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

McLeod initially made a big splash upon joining th Preds back in January, scoring a goal against his former team (Colorado) in his first game out. Since then, however, he's been relatively quiet with just three points in his last 11 games. This should not surprise anyone, of course, since McLeod is still more of an enforcer-type player and typically sees less than 10 minutes of ice time per game. He does rack up plenty of hits though, with 40 in his last 12 contests.

McLeod went plus-2 with a goal and five penalty minutes in his Predators debut Saturday against the Avalanche, recording ice time of 10:12 including 2:46 on the power play.

EDGE Analysis

After acquiring him from the Avs the day before, the Preds didn't waste any time inserting McLeod into the lineup against his former team. The move paid immediate dividends as McLeod scored the first of Nashville's three unanswered goals, sparking his team's comeback from a 2-0 second-period deficit. Looking ahead, McLeod's fantasy value may be poised to take a bump upward, if he continues to see more ice time with the Preds than he was seeing with the Avs.

The Avalanche traded McLeod to the Predators on Friday in exchange for forward Cody McLeod.

EDGE Analysis

McLeod is a low-end winger in terms of offensive acumen, albeit with size -- he's 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds -- and physicality. Last season, he ranked 12th in the league by mashing opponents 240 times, so it's fitting that he's headed for Smashville.

McLeod scored his first goal -- and point -- of the season in a 6-2 loss to the Rangers on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The only thing McLeod is remotely known for in fantasy is his affinity for the penalty box, so it was fun to see him finally get on the scoresheet in what was his 24th game of the season. His 45 PIM isn't enough to offset his extreme lack of offensive production and 5:56 of average ice time, however, so there's no need to dabble here for fantasy purposes.

McLeod is back in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blues.

EDGE Analysis

McLeod has been held out of action for the last five games as a healthy scratch. Sunday marks the fourth time this season the gritty veteran has laced up the skates, but he's yet to do anything of any fantasy significance with no points, an even rating, five PIM and a single shot on goal. He'll likely head back to the press box once Blake Comeau (groin) returns from injury.
